“Delicious,(Diesel Hair of the Dog-torp/belicoso), very different and refreshing approach to flavor profiling. Description is as noted. Give these some rest time and you'll be rewarded for your patience. Great creativity on this one, proof that full body doesn't have to mean full of pepper,(although I love peppery cigars), this is a great display of blending talent,full flavor,complex,and full body. Well done Diesel, Thank you C.I. for "bringin" it!”
“Just smoked my first HOTD. First impression was nice construction and and nice cold draw. The burn was even and slow and had enough spice through the first inch. As it kept burning it had notes of leather and earth. The rest was all the same. Not too impressed. Im going to wait a few weeks before I smoke another.”
“Ordered the Amistad solomon sampler. These are massive cigars. Out of all of these cigars, I liked Diesel hair of the dog. These are great tasting, full bodied cigars. Burn great, smoke great, taste great. I am going to order more of these. Can't resist. Thanks, CI.”
“Another great Abdel 'AJ' Fernandez cigar. The Hair of the Dog will definitely raise the hair on the back of your neck! These are one of my all time top 3 favorites. Perfect burn, aroma, wrapper, lots of spices and pepper flavor.”
“I've been a fan of Diesel for several years, and don't think I've ever received a bad one. Once again here comes this odd name; Hair of the Dog, and I'm so glad one of these was included in the sampler pack I purchased. A little more mellow than its siblings, but don't mistake it for a weak cigar. This is a fantastic smoke, that can be enjoyed by all med to full body cigar smokers.”
“I really like these belicosos. In fact, I think they're even better than the Unholy Cocktail and the Unlimited X. They have a nice full body and are plenty strong, but without an overwhelming pepper hit. I think it has something to do with the Ometepe tobacco used in this blend, but don't know for sure. Lots of leather and natural sweet tobacco flavors. Great construction too, with a nice tight burn line to the nub. Recommended if you're a Fernandez fan like me.”
“Sitting here with a Brandy and a HOTD. This is my second churchhill from the Cigar of the Month Club. Don't let the name scare you away from trying this great cigar. I definitely will buy a box of these to have around for that special occasion when nothing else really satisfies. The OOTD could very well become my favorite cigar.”
“I have tried several different sizes now and have come to the conclusion the HOTD is just about the finest cigar money can buy. A truly fantastic cigar!
“This review is of the massive figurado I received as a freebie add on with my last internet order. 1 each of the maduro, habano & this habano ligero Hair of The Dog. I burned the maduro yesterday & reviewed it. Today I am enjoying the HOTD & know I am in for a 90 minute marathon. These light easily & burn fairly irregular. I have needed to correct the burn several times. Perhaps some aging would overcome this slight distraction. The meat of the HOTD is not as aggressive as some have reported. To me, it is a medium bodied dry spice stick, with lots of flavors going on. After the 1st 20 minutes, I have not perceived a major increase in strength or body. Really quite mellow, considering the amount of ligeros in play with this vitola. I like its ability to deliver full tobacco flavors, without overpowering the senses. You truly do feel the power of this vitola behind the eyes & in the gut. In a very pleasant way, however. Don't let this blends reputation stop you from trying it out. Medium bodied smokers should find it well within their limits & full bodied lovers may wonder what all the hubbub is about. All in all, a fine smoke, filled with taste & flavor, delivered in a way that won't throw you into sensory overdrive.”
“All I can say is, it's as described. I'm fairly new to cigars but I'm all about taste and so far DPG has been my favorite but this one is a different caliber. The flavors were subtle yet it kept opening up. Even into the next day the flavor still lingered yet its a clean one. Maybe not an everyday smoke for me but a few will kept in my humi. I do recommend a full stomach and maybe some fresh ice tea (something with sugar) if your not used to full strength unless you wanna be light headed. The downside to Hair of the Dog is it will go out on you fairly quickly, but that might be due the the Salomon shape, not sure.”
