Earlier this week I received a surprise package from Felipe Gregorio containing three cigars. The cigars in the package were Black Pedro vitolas (Robusto, Torpedo, and Churchill).
A quick Google search didn’t net much in terms of information but I did find a short Youtube video from Felipe Gregorio. In that video I learned that this cigar is made up of an Ecuadorian Sumatra Maduro Wrapper and Nicaraguan Maduro Binder and Fillers.
Leading up to smoking these samples I have had limited experience with the Felipe Gregorio brand. I was very surprised with this cigar and found it to be a very enjoyable smoke. It has a nice balance of power and flavor. The flavor is made up of a combination of coffee, dark chocolate, some bitterness, and a licorice like flavor that hides in the background.
In terms of smokability, the burn line was relatively thin and even while producing a plentiful supply of dense smoke that is easy on the palate. The stick required no touch-ups and had a consistently smooth draw.
