After indulging in quite a few Cult Profile cigars, in various sizes, my gut is telling me these are going to go over smashingly well. For starters, each is consistent. From the burn and draw, one after the other it keeps bringin' its 'A' game. Then there's the flavor profile. An array of sweet, creamy notes containing leather, nuts and a dash of pepper are delivered in a versatile medium to full-bodied format. Factor it all in with handsome good looks, and you've got another solid offering from Cult. Oh, and the blend! How could I forget. Premium Nicaraguan long-fillers from the rich soils of Esteli are packed inside a Peruvian binder and Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. Hailing from the ultra-boutique TACASA factory located in Esteli, Nicaragua, Cult Profile is a recipe for success no doubt.
I generally feel disappointed by my first venture into a cigar. Cult was no different. But the second was better than the first and now it is a go to cigar. I like a cigar (especially a low-price premium) that gives me something distinctive. Would you know what you are smoking if you were blindfolded? Cult has its own taste and strength characteristics that I have come to enjoy. These cigars are also well constructed and even the churchills have drawn well for me, although I usually smoke the robustos. This is not the cigar you take to the swanky cigar bar. I think of it as good company on a walk or while reading the paper. It is too good to smoke in the car, which is where I use up all my disappointments.
