Petrus Etiquette Rouge

A flavorful fruit from Felipe Gregorio.

Once Felipe Gregorio's hottest blend, Petrus Etiquette Rouge is truly something special. This higher-end, special blend features a milky-smooth flavor and mild, creamy body. Much of this has to do with the wrapper. Grown in Ecuador from Connecticut seed, this shade-grown leaf is quite flavorful. Combined with a refined blend of some heady tobaccos, the flavor is bold and satisfying but light in character. Notes of cream, oak, pepper, and coffee grab your attention. Save big at CI, while these beauties last!

Customer Reviews of “Petrus Etiquette Rouge”
This cigar is one of my regular renew orders. (Petrus Etiquette Rouge) Now I don't say that often, because I like to try a lot of different "steals and deals". But for the recently reduced price, you can't go wrong, a terrific smoke. That's why I keep ordering this brand over and over.

DON'T BUY PETRUS ETIQUETTE ROUGE -- They're all mine, I tell ya! Excellent construction with a perfect light brown Connecticut wrapper. Mild, smooth, and creamy throughout. I usually get two inches of ash before breaking it off, then smoke it down to a half inch. This is as consistently reliable and enjoyable as it gets. So STAY AWAY!

Best value around. (Petrus Etiquette Rouge) This puro is very flavorful and mild. Perfect anytime. Really a steal at this price.

Was with some friends to discuss a literary classic, enjoying a fine local microbrew and I brought some Petrus Etiquette Rouge Torpedos. One of the guys couldn't wait (it was after work) and grabbed one out of my shirt pocket and fired it up. I had previously enjoyed them but wasn't really wild about them. But when I'm smoking them I can't usually smell them very well. THIS TIME I could really take in the aroma and IT WAS OUTSTANDING. In fact both of us smokers who hadn't lit up yet kind of went crazy smelling this to where we could barely handle it and had to have ours, too. Here was a case right in front of us where "it is more blessed to give than receive, for it is in giving that we receive" was shown to be true! Since then, they've been looking forward to what I bring to the meeting each time.

These sticks are highly underrated. (Petrus Etiquette Rouge) All I can say is that they were a great smoke.

After I tried a few I only got 60 of these in Robusto. (Petrus Etiquette Rouge) I'm saving room for when you get some more of those Corona's. I want a shot at those too. This is my new "daily", least until they sell out.

If it looks too good to be true, the saying goes. But every now and then you trust and you get lucky. This is one of those times. For those that like a smooth and very light smoke that doesn't bite, try these. (Petrus Etiquette Rouge) A nice even burn. No hotspots and no need for touching up. I'd bet a month or so in the humidor and this will be a personal and private joy 'cause I'm not sharing.

Petrus Etiquette Rouge

Posted by Steve R

Ever since my face was plastered next to the Petrus Etiquette Rouge in CI catalogs of the past, I’ve been receiving emails asking about the cigar. I’ve also received a good amount of emails cracking jokes on my funny-shaped mug (... you know who you are). Anyway, I’d like to entertain the nice emails by reviewing this cigar, so here goes.

First off, Petrus Etiquette Rouge is a nice looking cigar. It features a chestnut-colored, Connecticut seed wrapper grown in Ecuador. Practically vein-free, this leaf plays a major role in the overall character of the smoke. Consider the long-fillers inside: a complex mixture of Nicaraguan, Honduran and Dominican tobaccos. Normally, a recipe such as this would serve up ample strength. But, the addition of this mellow wrapper tames the beast within, keeping the Etiquette Rouge calm, cool and collected. It’s this mellow quality that makes the blend a fan favorite in Europe, where mild(er), natural-wrapped cigars reign supreme and overspending is the norm (the Etiquette Rouge will cost ya $13 to $17 a stick overseas!!)

The first quarter inch offers a light grassy taste at the front of my palate, something I might expect from a candela. Shortly after, the flavor opens up a tad to release a creamy stream of flavor, coating my palate before quickly dispersing as I exhale. A thick cloud of bluish smoke is left behind, one with a subtle, cedary aroma. The smoothness of this cigar really catches my attention. With Honduran and Nicaraguan tobaccos at play, I would expect some heady or spicy notes. Nada. The Etiquette Rouge is creamy with a delicate earthiness throughout and a crisp, almost refreshing, aftertaste. There's a faint woody note that develops - oaky like a Hoyo Excalibur - but it's tough to distinguish at times.

I find this cigar to be a great companion of lightly creamed coffee in the morning, or a nice smoke to brainlessly puff on while plugging away at my daily tasks. If there’s one thing Europeans know, it’s mild-bodied cigars. After all, they routinely smoke the likes of Davidoff, Dunhill and top-notch Cubans, and the fact that this cigar ranks among them is saying something.

PS - I often get emails saying, “you raved about the cigar but only gave it an ‘88’, what gives?!” Lemme tell ya, an '88' is a very respectable rating. In fact, it’s well above average. You may see a hefty onslaught of 90+ ratings out there, but remember, cigars rated ‘90’ or above only account for approximately 1% of all cigars on the market. When a ‘90’ rating is given, manufacturers like to brag, and rightfully so. But, there are plenty of fantastic premiums out there that have yet to achieve a score of that caliber, and this is one of them. After all, a rating is only a number...
