Inception Cigars BCD

A while back, I received some samples of a newly released brand called Inception Cigars. If there’s some confusion over the name “Inception,” these Inception Cigars come from the folks at JSR Cigar Distributors in Houston. I believe there is at least one other brand from a separate company offered under the name “Inception,” but I’ve heard there’s some sort of work in progress to clean up this naming mix-up. In any event, I’m always willing to try something new, so I welcomed the chance to put together a review for these cigars.

After a long day of work and traveling, I found the Inception Cigars BCD to be nice and relaxing. It didn’t “wow” me or blow me away by any means, but it’s worth a try. The flavors are subtle and not overly complex, so I’d recommend smoking this with a fresh palate. You should be able to detect enjoyable notes of wood, baking spice, and ginger, along with a gentle sweetness and a black pepper finish. All in all, not bad.

  1. nice review! saw it a day ago lol, as for my fav cutter, i will say the cuban crafters perfect cutter. the reason behind this is that i am disabled from a stroke i had and can only use one hand so this makes life alot easier.

  2. My favorite cutter is the Xikar Xi3 Titanium Spectra. Followed by the punch cutter in the base of my Xikar Element. Yea, I like Xikar, so what? Wanna fight about it?! 😉

  3. Nice review and favorite cutter is a Camo Palio I’ve had for some time although I always have a punch in the golf bag.

  4. My favorite cutter depends on the cigar. Xikar v-cutter for most. Cuban Crafters Perfect Cutter for torpedoes and some others. Or, whatever punch is in the the lighter I have when I forget a cutter. Or, the cutter the shop uses to cut my cigar. In other words, whatever I have on me or whatever is available! I should put one in every jacket pocket!

  5. My favorite, and only cutter I own, is my cuban crafters perfect cutter. It is the gold and carbon fiber one. Takes the guessinh work out. I think it’s time to send it out and try out the warranty. It might be beneficial to grab another one while I wait. Was thinking just a cheap one to pass me by, or a xikar cutter. The one which cuts up to 64 rg. Better to be safe than sorry!

  6. Nice review Charlie. As for the cutter, my favorite right now is the Xikar X8. Gives a very clean, straight cut with what feels like no resistance at all.

  7. My favorite cutter is my Xikar V-Cutter. Really helps newbies that don’t want to ruin a decent stick.

  8. Great review Charlie! You’re the first that I know of to use Pillsbury Grands biscuits to describe and ash, but it does make sense. My favorite cutter is a Colibri grip.

  9. Really lovin’ my new Xikar X8 cutter. Brand new and favorite thus far. Didn’t realize that they were based out of my city/state!

  10. My favorite is my only cutter, a freebee from Thompson that I received with a sampler ordered. I have not yet tried any other.

  11. Nice review! My favorite cutter is my Xikar. It is my first “fancy” cutter after years of cheapos…It is nice to not mangle the cigar now while cutting it… 😉

    1. Congrats, Patrick! Your entry was randomly selected as the lucky winner of our giveaway!

      Please check your email for instructions on how to claim your prize.

  12. Palio is my favorite by a good bit. I’ve got Xikar guillotine and Xikar scissors and the Palio cuts the cleanest.

  13. My favorite cutter is my Xikar Xi. I have a bunch of guillotine cutters and a few punches, but the Xikar is the one I use most often.

  14. My favorite cutter is my brand new Lotus. 🙂 That said I’m always on the lookout for a good punch.

  15. Charlie, have you smoked the El Suelo Terreno Cigars. Here is your budget bundle cigar…..THE GILL IS THE BEST…….

  16. Thanks for the contest!
    My favorite cutter is a cheapo $3 double guillotine.
    Works just fine & I don’t cry when I lose it – which I do a lot.

  17. My favorite cutter is my “Quad” tabletop cutter. Four
    cutters in one, (two V cutters and 2 straight cutters). Mounted to
    my table, next to my recliner in my “Man Cave”

  18. Any punch cutter that costs less than $3. Then I don’t care if I lose one or if it goes dull after a couple of months.
    Been at it for 15+ years and have never had any problem with getting a nice cut on a corona or robusto which is what I smoke all the time.
