A very nice cigar for the evening smoke. I'd not say it's a "full flavor". Mine are one notch below full. Not complaining though. Well made; a great cigar.
The Double Espresso is my son's favorite cigar. It would be mine as well, but I have a small mouth for the ring size so it is my second favorite. My favorite, in all honesty, is which ever cigar I am enjoying at the moment.
Ok, I smoked a double espresso last night. It is a good cigar. It is not good enough to justify the price. I have also smoked much better cigars, so it is worth trying, but not worth buying a box.
I would put the double right up there with anything. Better get them on special as they are a bit pricy.
I got the double exspresso cigar a couple of years ago in a sampler. I have always been a fan of graycliff but this cigar is their greatest creation. If you like a heady cigar with perfect construction this cigar is for you. This cigar has so much ligero in it you can feel the nicotene on your tongue. It a great sensation. If they made them in a 6x60 size my humidor would be full of them.
Just made the purchase of the Double Expresso when CI offered them on the deal of the day offer ( probably the only way I can afford them).
I did not wait to cure them in my humidor, I had to try one right away.
I was blown away from the start. Just smelling the unlit cigar is a little bit like heaven, sich earthy tones. Lighting up I got the the immediate presence of Cedar and oak, with creamy after taste. the rich smoke and aroma only enhances the experience. This cigar rivals any "Cuban" I have had. Now I have a dilemma, how do I savior the remaining nine cigars and I how do I manage to acquire more. Truely one of the best smokes I have had.
A little over a year ago I picked up a bundle of 18 Double Espresso(s). I decided I was going to age this cigar and have it only on my wedding anniversary. So, after having one a year ago around the time of my wedding, I stuck the remaining 17 in the bottom of my aging humidor to hibernate with my Opus X-es and some other gems. After a year of waiting (how the heck did I actually wait so long?!?), I finally was able to pull out another Double Espresso and indulge. To my surprise, the year of aging wildly changed the cigar. What was originally a full bodied, fire-cracking stick of dynamite has drastically mellowed out into a super smooth, consistent, slow-burning cigar. The taste has evolved into a super creamy, latte-ish, vanilla ice cream... no complaints here!!! My only critique at this time is that the last inch or so produced excessive char flavors and the burn was just a little too slow (perhaps the cigar was a little too moist?). Nevertheless, I am absolutely thrilled with what a year has done to this cigar and I am looking forward to seeing what the next year of aging holds in store!
I bought a 5 pack a while back and had them resting a while, I'm was very disappointed, these are not worth the price. Try El Mejor Espresso instead.
I'll put this little guy (Graycliff Double Espresso Series) up against NUB, what a great stick!!
The (Graycliff Double Espresso) is an incredible little cigar that is much bigger on taste than appearance. I ordered mine early in 2008 when CI offered up one of those 75 or 80% off MSRP deals you can't resist.
I'm not going to write about the experience since that has been done better than I can. I have ONE NEGATIVE thing to add. The construction of the sticks I received was NOT impressive. I have NEVER seen so much pectin slathered all over the band. You cant avoid tearing up the otherwise lovely wrapper that covers much of the 4.6" cigar. I was also shocked at the amount and sloppiness of pectin on the caps.
The odd thing is the description of the product here at CI describes the torcedors as top-notch, but I truly have not seen so much pectin EVER or such sloppiness on such a pricey cigar.
I would have been very disappointed if I paid $10/stick. Besides that one downfall the cigar is EXCELLENT.
I love the (Graycliff Double Espresso Series) , had a chance to go to the factory and buy some right off the hand rollers table
I found these cigars to a little on the harsh side of strong. For the price, I felt them to be quite expensive.
I loved the (Graycliff 1666) already, so I decided to try the Double Espresso. Man, this thing was potent. Nice, spicy, peppery, and buttery, but still smooth. In my book, this is very full bodied, but I am still a newbie. For me, it was like smoking a hot pepper, but I love peppers!
An UNBELIEVABLE experience (Graycliff Double Espresso Series) for a newcomer to the pure luxury of cigar smoking. I have only been smoking cigars for a year or two and was turned on to the Graycliff label by a very tight buddy of mine. He started me off with a G2 which was an extremely enjoyable mild cigar. As I continued to smoke my tastebuds have matured. He then introduced me to the Double Espresso. From the very first smell I was hooked. The creamy full bodied cigar with heavy plumes of smoke is a euphoric experience from beginning to end. I am ruined to other cigars and want to ensure that I have some of these on hand at all times for when the perfect time arises. A bit pricey but well worth it for the special occasions.
An excellent wee cigar. (Graycliff Espresso) I found it to be not at all full-bodied; perhaps only a low-end medium, but with a lot of flavour. I'd call the pre-light aroma 'floral' and very nice, indeed. Firm ash, even burn and good to the end. I'll have to have more of these.
Put one part El Mejor Espresso, one part Gurkha Fuerte, and one part steroids and BAM! The "Graycliff Double Espresso", Definitely on the strong side of medium, rich coffee and semi sweet chocolate, peppery and i even tasted some vanilla nuances. Find a quite place with an hour to spare, kick back and enjoy this fat, tasty, powerful... S.O.B!
