Thanx to Brian Hewitt for the above image as my sd card went POOF and I have not been able to recover anything from it yet. That is the reason for no pictures in the video also.
Short write up this week for the Sindicato cigar. I received two of these from the company and I figured I would shoot a review and get your thoughts in the comment section.
This Sindicato started mild and went to medium pretty quickly. Came in with a honey roasted nutty taste and a little bit of spice to start. A woody background came into play and a vegetal taste, like cauliflower. emerged. This cigar burnt fast. I could have recorded the whole thing probably. At the end the vegetal taste built rapidly and the spice picked up a notch. Definitely do not under estimate this cigar if you are a mild smoker. It hits the full body range but never goes too far to make you loopy.
Would I buy it again? maybe. I would try other sizes as this was just not to my taste preferences. If it would have stayed more in the medium range I could see smoking it more but I would rather try my luck with the other sizes.
Just received a press release about a special event going on June 14th. Normally we do not post press releases but since I just did this review I will post a snippet.
Sindicato Cigars continues to bring the best together on its journey to create
greatness. This time, the company is bringing hundreds of retailers and
thousands of consumers together by announcing National Sindicato Day
this June 14th, 2014.
National Sindicato Day will be a day to get together with friends at participating
tobacconists across the United States to celebrate the company’s new flagship
cigar, the Sindicato. It’s well known that ‘Sindicato’ means ‘Union’ in Spanish,
so to participate in this new cigar holiday, the company is urging everyone to
“Join the Union” and become an official Sindicato member.

excitement they have shown with our new cigar. We’ve received tons of photos
and posts on our social media channels and it’s now time to show our support for
our fans. We’re asking everyone to join Sindicato, so we can give out more than
just great cigars.”

Why is a new cigar company sold their cigar price more than the well known cigar name? Business 101 are: most cigar smokers buy their cigars under from $3 to $8. We don’t care that you have 10 yrs old leaves and aged the leaves in the spirit barrel for 5 yrs. If you wanted to stay in the cigar’s business. Your cigars have to be better be cheap and good than the BIG BRAND NAME ( Padron and Fuente ). Thank you for all who are making good and cheap cigars for us……….
Sounds like a very interesting cigar ill have to see if we have it up here in Calgary. Lots of the sticks you guys review we don’t have or shops don’t carry up here due to low demand on them which really sucks. Oh well when I have money ill have to order online I guess.
On another side note is that rthe same V-cutter you were gifted a while back. Just purchased one my self the other day bc of you saying how much you like it and wanted to try it for myself. Now I don’t know what I like better that or my scissors. Thanks Mike lol.
great review as always looking forward to the next one
Yes it is the same v-cutter and I still love it! My wife has started smoking some flavored stuff (rarely) and said she liked the v-cutter too. I use the scissors if I want a slow meditative sculpting of a cigar but most of the time it is just too slow for my impatient self. I love the tools on the scissors though.
Now that your wife rarley smokes the flavoued cigars the Acid cold infusion tea is a nice one if she hasn’t yet tried it. If she likes tea flavours and the sweetness its pretty good.
if you can find a royal hawaiian cigar I’d recomend trying it out if you like vanilla and coconut. I was gifted one a few years ago when my boss at the time went to hawaii.
