Great cigar...I give it on a scale from 1-10-an 8. Subtly spiced aroma and taste...perfect for the Fall season.
Drew Estate is my favorite brand. Def Sea will be put at the bottom of the list. I bought a 5 pack, left in humidor for a week or so lit one up tonight not that impressed I don't think I'll get these again. Just my opinion.
Great draw. Even burn. Medium-bodied. Cigars smell great!
Let me start by stating that ACID cigars by Drew Estates are my go to sticks for pretty much anything. Three of my five humidors have nothing but DE's in them. But this one was a shocker. First the good construction is top notch as always the wrapper was immaculate and the seams tight for the entire length of the smoke. And that's it for the good.
Now for the bad.. upon removing the cigar from its cellophane wrapper I notice immediately that it hade an odd feel to it, rough and somewhat gritty.
I ordered a box of Ltd. Def Sea on MMAO and sadly my offer was accepted and I received them, worst choice I ever made. I expected more from the Acid line, the Acid Def Sea cigars were as loose as a joint rolled by an 80 year old glaucoma patient. The imperfection in the wrapper was immediately apparent upon arrival; the wrapper was torn, cracked, and or very thin on most to all of the cigars. Although the fresh cigars were a delightful aroma of sweetness prior to lighting, the disappointment set in with the first draw. It seemed as if the cigar was not infused but rather sprayed with a scent, as no flavor permeated the cigar. I will not purchase again, nor recommend these cigars.
Im not going to lie, i really didnt like these at all. I tried them in Afghanistan from a friend of mine that i knew spent meticulious amounts of time preparing and seasoning his cigars and was just disappointed with this cigar. Love acids and most of Drew Estates cigars, just not this one.
I received a 5 pack from Cigars International & after a couple of days in the humidor, I decided to fire one up. I found it to be a mild well balanced cigar, perfect for an after dinner treat. I just started to appreciate the Drew Estate family of cigars & so far this is one of my all time favorites.
Fine, quality cigar, but no wow factor I've come to expect from Drew Estates.
The smell of this cigar is unreal. I found myself just smelling it for 30 minutes before I lit it up. Unfortunately it got a little damaged on the ride over to Afghanistan....it happens. It wasn't too bad, but I completely lost the wrapper about half way through. Even with the damage you could tell it was a well made cigar and the draw was perfect in spite of that. Even though it is infused (and it certainly smells infused) you don't really get that experience when smoking it. What you get is a nice, mild smoke, with subtle little flavors popping up here and there. On the whole this cigar had me thinking about some kind of oriental tea.
Best Cigars ever, smooth, mild. Taste awesome
First off, I LOVE almost every Acid cigar. This one is not one of them. It's too mild for me and leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I ordered a 5 pack and am currently smoking my second one. These have very little infused flavor compared to its brothers and sisters in the Acid line-up.
Skip these, go for the (new) old standby Kuba Kuba or an Atom Maduro if you want a rich, delicious smoke with an excellent infused flavor.
I love acid cigars, but these are not your typical acid cigar. They are far milder and there is less of the infused oils. They are a pleasant smoke, but if you enjoy the typical acid taste I do not recommend these. I purchased a box, because they included a natural sampler a few years back and I just smoked the last one just to get rid of it. I gave most of them away. Even after aging three years in the humidor they did not develop a complex taste.
Does Jonathan Drew know how to make a poor smoke?I think not.The DEF SEA is another winner.I have smoked over one dozen different Drew Estate cigars and after each one I think to myself "it can't get any better" that thought lasts until I try the next DE smoke in the humi.Top quality cigars from Drew Estate and EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE FROM CI.KUDOS to both.
smoked a few now... they smell and taste of the 'essential oils' i.e. they smell and taste like ... incense... these are very different, try before you buy...
My favorite of all the ACID cigars (ACID Ltd. Def Sea). This one taste smooth and doesn't leave a funky flavored aftertaste like some of the others do. The smoke isn't too heavy and I always get people asking me about this cigar due to it's aromatic smell. I'll probably get lectured for this, as I'm not a cigar afficianado, but I like throwing these in the humidor with my CAO Blacks (also a great smoke in my opinion) as it mellows out the smell in the humidor.
A great dessert smoke (ACID Ltd. Def Sea), very light, great aroma. I usually smoke while grilling out, and while this doesn't go well with things that get grilled, it does go well with the things that come afterwards! Nibble on some chocolate while smoking this for an even better experience!
These are Mild as can be.ACID Ltd. Def Sea. To me the best situation to smoke one of these is on a nice hot day with a nice lemonade or something as it goes well with sweet drinks. This Is not your average Acid as It tastes very mild and although it is infused it seams not to effect the taste but the aroma. So this is a cigar that no one will turn your nose up at you while your smoking one. Some may even ask you about it. I like there is no sweet tip which some Acids have. The sugar tip to be is undesirable due to the aftertaste, It tastes like artificial sweetener and I don't like that. This cigar does not. It is loosely filled but it still holds at least an Inch of ash and has a loose draw also. In all this is a good summer smoke that I said will please the noses around you it would go well with a nice summer ale with a lemon wedge or a lemonade IMO. To me this is the summer cigar mild smoooooooth to the nub and smells great. It has a medium finish that isn't that great but it is a smoke that would be for me out of 10 a 6 purely due to the fact it is infused as an infused cigar I would give it a 8 out of 10 only due to the loose roll and draw if it were made the same way with the same amount of tobacco but with a gauge size of 50 or even 48 would make it perfect.
This is such a well balanced cigar (ACID Ltd. Def Sea), I don't know what took me so long to try it. The blend is excellent, with a medium to full body, buttery character, but that added 'herbal' from Drew Estates makes them simply "exceptional". If you haven't already, try a five pack. You won't be sorry.
These (Acid Ltd. Def Sea) are unusual. I bought a box of five on the recommendation of a pal of mine. They are OK, but for an "old country boy" who enjoys a good cigar while playin' a few holes over at the local club with the boys...It may be a bit "much". Not to say I don't like it...but; it perhaps is a good choice for an after dinner smoke when you've eaten Chinese, Thai, VietNamese or something that leaves an unusual spicy or gingery taste on the palate. Or with a glass of white or blush wine of some sort..But for trying to win a few skins on the back nine or to accompany a draft beer or cup of strong black "joe"...I prefer my Puros Indios 6X60's, Nestor Reserve Maduros, or Padilla Especial Obsidians....But that's just me.
anything from johanthan drew is excellent but you have to try this one (ACID Ltd Def Sea). great cigar plus you cant beat CIs prices and service.coming from CT i know about tobacco
