Last week, Jerry and I were discussing my current commute cigar dilemma. In the morning, when I leave my house before 5:00am, my ride to work takes roughly 35 minutes. No matter what I seem to select as a commute cigar, I always wind up throwing away a portion of it.
First I tried a Nub Connecticut. While it was an enjoyable cigar, I wound up pitching about half of it. Next I tried the Guerrilla Warfare from Viva Republica. Great little cigar that was just about the right size, although it was a bit high octane for so early in the morning.
As we discussed different cigars to fit the bill, Jerry jokingly said to record a commute review on the way into work so that I would maximize my time. What Jerry didn’t know what that I had a camera mount in my car and could very easily make that happen (it would just need to be done on my way home from work – pre-dawn recordings are a little tough to see on video).
Last week I climbed into my car, after a long day of work, and lit up a cigar I hadn’t smoked in years, an Indian Tobac Super Fuerte. I recently picked up a 5-Pack of these on Cigar Monster as a commute cigar (I wanted something inexpensive for the ride home from work) for roughly $12.00.
I was surprised to find that I enjoyed the Indian Tobac Super Fuerte more now than I did years ago. The flavors are a bit one dimensional and won’t come close to blowing your mind but it is a very solid budget cigar nonetheless.
The ‘Super Fuerte’ of years ago isn’t nearly as powerful these days. I’d say the Indian Tobac is in the low-end of Full Bodied and offers a buttery smooth finish. For the money, these really are a wonderful budget smoke.
