A date with destiny.
I love diversifying my vocabulary. It comes in handy all the time. From playing Jeopardy to crushing my feeble minded friends at Scrabble. I just can't get enough. And aside from being legit handmades, Kismet cigars also taught me a new word. “Kismet” means fate or destiny. After sampling the whole line, one thing is for sure. They are truly destined for big things. It all starts with a fantastic blend of six – count ‘em – six different types of tobaccos, all grown in various, fertile regions of the Dominican. The most impressive of the bunch being the wrapper. A feisty Corojo leaf dating back to 2006. This leaf adds a nice spicy, leathery element to the creamy, coffee-esque core. All in all it's going to take a lot of people by surprise. Just remember that I gave you the inside scoop on this one first....
In early 2014, Cigar Aficionado performed a vertical tasting on the Kismet line. Not one, but two of the sizes were rated a respectable 90 points. Here's what they had to say about the Destiny and Luck, "A well-made, tawny-colored cigar that is toasty and pleasant. Notes of leather and earth also come through before a maple sweetness...Coffee and earth flavors become nutty, building to a cedary, spicy finish. This well-balanced cigar is skillfully rolled and smokes well."
