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.
Brand/Name of Cigar: Diesel Unlimited/Maduro Perfecto
Size: 5.0 x 5.8
Country of Origin: Nicaragua
Binder: San Andres
Price: $4.19 each, box of 20 $78.07
Purchased: Free from Cigarscity.com
Where and When Smoked: Los Angeles, Ca. 3/20/16
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.
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.
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
Great price point but that does not equate to a good value smoke. This is a pass, sorry AJ.
