Use at your own risk


Take a close look at this cigar and tell me what you think it looks like? Now here is another picture
and notice the similarity with a 50 caliber bullet.

Separated at birth.

The Diesel Unlimted Maduro perfecto has an uncanny resemblance to the powerful 50 cal. bullet.
Check out my review and see what I think of the cigar shaped cartridge.  I received the smoke from Cigarscity.com gratis for my thoughts on this bomb. 
As always getting a cigar gratis  does not  influence my review.

Cigar specs:

Brand/Name of Cigar: Diesel Unlimited/Maduro Perfecto

Where and When Smoked: Los Angeles, Ca. 3/20/16

Appear/Construction:

Very dark brown, if any darker it would be black. Rustic in appearance with a uneven cap. The cap is sloppy. Firm to the touch, plenty of oil glistening in the wrapper. It's maduro all the way.


Flavor/Taste and Aroma:

Started with a spice hit somewhat harsh. Very prominent chocolate and orange peel notes. Powerful first third. True to it's roots, this is a maduro taste profile.


Smoking Characteristics:

The burn was even in the first third but uneven in the second third. A dark grey ash and the cigar became more chocolate in taste. Needed two relights.

Conclusion/Overall Impression:


My numbers add up this way:

Appearance/ Construction: 3 out of 5
Flavor/ Taste and Aroma;  2.5 out of 5
Smoking Characteristics: 2. 5 out of 5
Overall  Impression: 2.8 out of 5

Final Thoughts:

Great price point but that does not equate to a good value smoke. This is a pass, sorry AJ.

Keep smoking
