Spark'em up. This is a great summer smoke. This gar is the complete opposite of last month's pick. Let me start by saying I'm not a huge fan of anything imbued with anything. I used to think flavored cigars were for sissies. Well, things sure have changed around here. I've got two in the rotation now, Cuban Honeys (Vanilla) and Acid Def Sea. I haven't smoked too many Acids and my first one about a year ago smelled like potpourri (it was the Nasty size and boy did I think it was nasty.) It took me a full year to pick up another one.
When you open the box, you get a serious whiff of that aromatic smell, it seems a little less so than some of the others. Or, maybe I'm just getting used to it now. Either way, it's become less bothersome. And, you simply don't get that potpourri smell in your mouth. The flavor is awesome. It's a beautiful perfecto shape and I know most people clip both ends, but I'm not like most people. I only snipped the head and not the foot and it sparks up as quickly as can be. The fill seems a little loosely packed, but the burn is impeccable. In fact I smoked one tonight on the way home. Just when you think it's going to fall on your lap, it doesn't. It holds for another 10 drags. I'm not kidding.
Don't expect to be blown over with power. It's smooth, gentle, fresh, and gives just a little hint of spiciness. You'll enjoy this. The smoke is abundant, but so gentle, your wife won't kick you out to the yard. It leaves such a pleasant smell, no after-taste, and you really can't lose.
The burn is even and fairly quick. It'll last 40 minutes and is truly a nice refreshing summertime smoke. Oh, CI is throwing in a free cap just for grins. Enjoy.
