Saint Luis Rey Serie A

Saint Luis Rey Serie A

It’s my second Saint Luis Rey cigar, so please don’t judge me too severe. I hope you’ll like my review and maybe get some positive (or even negative :) experience reading it.

I had a glass of water handy cause I heard from some smokers who already smoked the cigar that it was a bit dry and needed some moistening. And I must tell, it did dry my throat out a little, so be careful with this stick.

Appearance: It looks good – like most of the Cuban cigars for this price, though some imperfections could be noticed when examined a little closer. It’s a little bit dry to the touch and has more veins than a good cigar should have. No preliminary conclusion yet; please wait for the rest of the review :)

Burn and draw:  The cigar lit pretty easy and was burning nicely until the second third when I faced some draw issue. The smoke was too tight, so I had to improve the cigar and correct the burn, and after a while, everything got back to normal again.

First third: Started good with some slight nuances of earth, spice and nuts. The flavors were not overwhelming at all and penetrated me gently and absolutely unobtrusively. I really liked it and was eagerly expecting for the other hints to evolve.

Second third: Starting as a medium bodied at the beginning, Saint Luis Rey Serie A gradually gained strength and became more powerful in the middle and remained the same till the end. Some flavors of cedar, earth and wood mixed great together and composed a great balance I truly enjoyed.

Last third: Great, totally amazing cigar and the finish proved it once again – it started with coffee and chocolate! nuances and kept this divine combination till the very end. Of course, I smoked it to the nub cause it did worth every breath of my lungs :)

This cigar is one of the examples when we shouldn’t judge by appearance. When I first saw it, I thought “oh God, it’s not attractive enough to me” but it took only light the cigar, and it told me I was wrong.  A must-try who likes corona gorda  shape and such combination of flavors, like spice, earth, nuts and coffee. the price is also very good for a box of 25 cigars of this class.
