Obsidian White Noise

Ladies and gentlemen, make some NOISE.


After establishing a loyal following, many have come to embrace all that is Obsidian. And who can blame them? There's an awful lot to rejoice in. But now, after 2 years of tireless development, it's time to pull away the curtain and reveal the newest specimen to don the Obsidian name. Put your hands together for the highly anticipated follow-up to Obsidian, White Noise.

Obsidian White Noise was forged from a blank slate, to provide a fresh, exciting, and captivating experience. Dressed in a gorgeous, golden-brown Ecuador Habano-wrapper, each White Noise is simply stunning to eye. But don't be fooled, because beneath this velvet glove awaits a bevy of hearty long-fillers from the Dominican and Nicaragua. Selected from nutrient-rich primings, this core pairs exceedingly well with the sultry wrapper. The end result is a highly polished Cuban-esque profile containing cedar, cream, pepper, nuts, and coffee all backed by a toasty, slightly sweet note of tobacco. Beautifully balanced, this medium to full-bodied blend is exceptionally tasty. And by the time the burn reaches your fingers, you'll be dosing off in vision of another. Prepare to be mesmerized by Obsidian White Noise.

Bummer!
My expectations were high when I ordered a box, but they quickly faded. The first one I tried wasn’t too bad, but the second was just awful. In fact, I couldn’t finish and threw it out. I have no desire to try another.

All I hear is white noise
This is an all around great cigar, it's everything the description says and more, but I think there is more of a dark chocolate note on the back end. Can't go wrong as a beginner with this cigar...pairs nice with dark rum (non spiced) enjoy the white noise!

The longer the better
I got a 5 pack on the MMAO page. Sat in humi for a week before I smokes first one. First one was good, notes of nuts and a lot of white pepper and cream. I put it in the back burner and smokes other sticks for a while. Humi time is now 1.5 months and a second one was smoked, ALOT better creamy, nutty as heck and white pepper slightly on the retrohe. Humi time 2.5-3 months from reception the third one is smoked. A totally different cigar! Super creamy and the notes of nuts and cedar is followed by a distinct taste and feel of buttery hay.. OMG it’s great! Im getting a box and letting them sit a few months! I love these suckers!

Obsidian white noise review
This cigar is a good daily smoke but not flavorful, overpowering hits of pepper spice and some of them in the batch were not tightly rolled (soft spots). Initial lighting was very even and 1st half of the cigar is more enjoyable, more than 3rd way down I noticed uneven burn and had to re-light. The smoke got heavier and felt you can taste high note of spices, which may not be suitable for cigar beginners. Bit more time in a humidor and I think this cigar had a chance.

Great cigar and price. Smooth draw and even burn. Few in box packed tight and harder to draw, but still good for price. Band is on very tight so takes a little time to take off. But worth the time.

White Noise -- Toro Extra
I got a good deal on a 5 pack with the make me an offer. I have only smoked one so far. Very nice cigar, nice draw ,nice burn, good smoke and nice smooth flavor. Didn't seem terribly strong while smoking it but by the end of the smoke I could feel its effect. The Toro Extra is a 6.5" X 54 ring cigar that makes for an hour plus of enjoyment.

Shrink Wrap is a pain!
Nice presentation! (The cigars in the box.) Not a fan of the shrink wrap! The smoke was a bit more peppery than expected.

Like a good smoke, White Noise is there!
Great smoke, its very smooth and you want to smoke it to the end. Creamy and puffy almost like some kind of cigar marshmallow. I recommend.

A new light
I'm going to start by saying my experience has been limited to true Cuban Cohibas and a few others from Alec Bradley Perdomo and Rocky Patel thanks to a generous friend getting my feet wet. These by obsidian came as a spur decision to try a less than full bodied cigar at a fair price assuming I prefered the intensity full body smokes provided, and I'm quite impressed to my surprise at the flavor and enjoyable experience each has been. Even questioning what it is I like in a cigar. Thanks obsidian for showing me a new light that is white noise!

?Seconds?
Extremely difficult to remove the white cigar cover. It sticks to the leaf and peels part of the leaf as you try to remove it. Despite that, it’s a good smoke.

OK for the On Sale price
For a $2 cigar, these are OK. The wrapper pretty much unwinds once the tip is is cut and you light up. Maybe they've been sitting around in stock for a long long time, and that's why they're on sale. That might be the risk both for buyer and seller. Unfortunately for the seller, because these were "not good," I'm not likely to buy the cigar at regular price. But even for the "on sale" price, there's better stuff out there.

What a deal!
A lovely cigar, consistent from end to end, from stick to stick. A pleasure to turn off time and immerse oneself while smoking it. The occasional discounted price a welcomed bonus. Will definitely buy more next time they are featured.

Average Smoke
Not the best but not the worst 3 of 5 didn't want to stay lit or burned uneven. Of the 2 that I was actually able to smoke the smoke was average however the last 2/3 of it burned kind of hot for my liking. Over all I give it Average Marks on taste and draw.

Mediocre smoke. Have tried two of these. In both cases theysStarted fine, good draw. Tasty first third, that was quite enjoyable. Nice even burn through the first half. Then the burn was quite uneven and the smoke grew harsh. Gave up with a third to go, burn still quite uneven. Not the worst smoke I've had, but disappointing finish - especially after a nice start. I only have three left. May let them sit in the humidor a while...

Good Bargain
These are my go to golf course smoke. They aren't spectacular but they're very good and a great price. My only complaint has been, occasionally I'll get some that don't draw very well. It's only occasional and if it's just one I'm willing to toss it and light another at that price. Once it seemed that half of them were too tight but most of the time they're fine. You may have to relight a sidewinder but not a big deal. Still, great bargain.

a cigar with taste
this cigar if kept correctly, you can cut the tip and chew on it . I've tried a lot of cigars on the lower to mid range this one has flavor I can taste and if you put it down for a bit it stays lit. I can actually taste the spice, the leather, a bit of chocolate with a hint of sweet. to me the draw is perfect. Smoking one as I write . enjoy!

Very enjoyable smoke, I admit I am terrible at picking out the various flavors, this seems to have a nice soft woodsy and some type of creamy taste. I will definitely get more of these fine cigars.

A nice cigar!
This is a good cigar. When I first got these they were okay. But after aging a few months in a humidor they've greatly improved. Lots of smoke and a great burn. Nutty and creamy. Like others have said a big blast of pepper on the initial light but then mellows nicely. More medium body than full. Gave some to my friends and they really enjoyed them. Would buy again.

Won't buy again
These just ok. Not great not even good, but ok. Smokable yes if you don't mind a big veiny wrap and some uneven burn IMO there are much better smokes available for the price. Don't waste your money unless you feel like you must try these

Nice
Ordered a ten pack of torpedos from Joe's DD. Had to try one right away and experienced the proverbial hole as mentioned in other reviews. I attributed this to being dry from the week long trip from CI to South Texas. Let the others rest at 74% humidity for a while and have had no further burn issues. You get a blast of pepper when lighting but soon tones down to a very nice, hour long smoke. I like them.

I am deployed to Iraq and am just getting into smoking cigars, I have had many different kinds and wanted to try some that where a little better quality. These did the trick arrived rather quick and packaged well but wish they had more options for humidity control for shipping to the sandbox (mail takes a bit longer to reach us) I will be ordering more when I get home and stock my humidor.

Mild and burns well, the draw is hard at first and the flavors are flt. Good not great smoke for the money.

Fair stick
This is an OK cigar. Good but not great. IMO there is not a whole lot of flavor going on. They are most definitely a mild to medium stick and not medium to full as advertised. Mine did have a good even burn but ash doesn't hang on for very long. A good cigar for the price point though.

Hard burner.
The original Obsidian is a tasty smoke. However, the white noise is mediocre at best. These have a hard time staying lit and I could not get the box press to burn out of my sampler. Hopefully, they get better with some age, as the initial flavor had potential.

Read carefully and then go buy with an open mind and see what happens
Bought a few samplers that had both black and white bands and the ghost blends which i still have yet to smoke over a year later something about the wrapper smell pushes me away but they do have an oil soaked wrapper feeling to them i did love the box press and enjoyed the whites more than the blacks but then i got some half coronas whites and blacks and i will be the first to say they are perfect quick smokes for a really good price way better than a quorom corona and cheaper on the right sale or equal in pricing but extremely better smoke and flavors i just fimished off the white noise gordo that had been in my humidor for 14 months now and probably the most cuban flavors ive had from domestic at this price point but the coronas are where my loyoalties still stay on this one you wont be disappointed check cbid grab some on sale check them out promise you wont have the problems you do with their larger ring guaged ones ive probably went thru over 70 of them now and never disappointed me yet

Obsidian White Noise has actually bumped another wonderful stick from Pinar Del Rio, the Reserva Limitada, off my top perch for a great smoke. Consistent burn with good flavor from beginning to end.

One of my favorites by PDR. This cigar draws easy yet burns not too quickly. It tastes great, and is a great for someone with a mild to medium preference. While I am one who prefers more full bodied cigars, I still find obsidian quite pleasant.

This is a great smoke. Smooth draw more on the mild side with big flavor. Smoked these years ago and now started smoking them again.

This cigar was in one of the sampler packs I received and as soon as I lit it I new it was to be a sweet cigar. It didn't disappoint! Very smooth throughout with an even burn. I bought a box with my next order. A Great Cigar

Obsidian cigars.
Robusto was fine, however, the Toro extra didn't seem to be rolled properly and a hole was evident in the middle of the cigar causing to to go out and burn unevenly, therefore wasting many cigars.

Awesome Cigar for the Price!
My morning go to gar. A medium stick with just the right amount of spice to go with my coffee and the one hour drive. They have consistent burn with great construction and are priced right. Always in my humidor along with the evening fare of 5 Vegas Classic torpedoes.

Wrapped to tight. Harsh flavor.
Wrapped so tight I couldn't smoke it. Flavors could be smoother, but it was hard for me to tell since I couldn't get it to draw. Granted, I got this in a grab bag, so not necessarily complaining for the price. But I wouldn't get one again.

This cigar is too mild for my own taste, hence I order them for a friend, who thinks highly of them.

Obsidian White Noise/Inconsistant at Best
The first time I tried Obsidian I thought I found my match. The batch I bought did everything you would want a smoke to do, taste good, burn well and even. Part 2- The box just purchased has turned into a mushy mess. Burns poorly, the infamous hole in the center of the cigar appears and then we canoe. That whole box was I hate to say it "garbage". I have another box as I bought two and I am afraid that I will get the same result. Disappointing!!!!

Cubanesque
I love the Cubanesque flavor, the good burn and the solid construction. I don't care for the Obsidian White Noise's signature ultra-wide band that encases nearly the entire cigar. More often than not, I found the removal of the band was difficult, sometimes flaking off some of the habano wrapper in the process. Other than that, a very good cigar.

Obsidian White Noise just awful
Some time back I got a 5-pack of these semi-torpedo bellicosos and smoked one immediately.It was just terrible; harsh with no good tastes in it at all. I put another in my humidor for several months and just smoked it. It was as bad as the first. I threw it away after smoking a third or less, and I am trowing away the remaining 3.
1 out of 5
Oops! Problem!
My husband said it tasted great! We got the 10 Cigar pack and the first 5 were perfect! He then opened the second pack and they all ended up having holes down the center of them which caused a horrible draw (too tight) and tasted like it was burning (not in a good way).

Bought these on a sale offer and have NO REGRETS!!
Admission, I'm a noob to cigars. I have to say, I really enjoyed this one. It's strong, but very easy on the palate. Great cayenne pepper on the tongue. Subtle flavors of dry oak leaves and several others that I lack the experience to quantify. I will be keeping these on hand.

Disappointed
I had tried Obsidian about a year ago and was quite impressed at the smooth smoke for the price. So I ordered this "bargain" deal and had to deal with CI's frustrating customer service to return the order because several cigars were damaged. The second box came and so far I am not impressed as I once was. For the price I have no noise to make about these cigars.
5 out of 5
Nice Smoke!
Great ring size, consistent flavor and wrapper. Each cigar was the same as the one before it! One of my favorites from the Obsidian line! I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the medium body for an afternoon smoke out on the patio or at a barbeque

For those that like a tasty cigar, the Obsidian double perfecto will be a nice choice. The first half of the cigar can be downright sublime.
Customer Testimonials
Decent stick. Didn't have any of the burn issues mentioned in some of the other reviews. Didn't like nearly as much as the black. Kept picking up a faint charcoal taste, but not enough to make me put it down & leave it. I'm usually a one cigar a day man. Toasted the foot on a Punch earlier in the day so maybe that had an effect on this stick. Not a bad smoke though. Not bad at all.
Enjoyable cigar, but poor construction. Though retaining moisture, the wrapping unwinds and flakes off....
I tried this cigar when they had the 5 pack specials. GREAT MOVE good tasting stick, full mild smoke to me. Have added it to my rotation. Even when they are not on sale they are priced right.
I was pleasantly surprised by this smoke. I had the regular Obsidian and was less than impressed. I got The Obsidian and the White Noise in the same sampler, so I sat on the White Noise for about 4 months. I regret that I waited that long! This cigar is very tasty! Right when the initial kick wore off, I started drinking Gold Peak blend coffee from Starbucks and they paired very well together, keeping the intensity up to a medium-full for the duration. I might just have to buy a 5-pack and age them longer!
I was always curious of this brand because I've studied runes and this one called to me with how much a gift this is. I picked up the mazo of double perfectos. WOW! Definitely full, as you are met initially with the effects of pepper and spice. Eventually it mellows out but retains a similar taste profile. Burn was even and quite a decent smoke! It's not my go to favorite just yet, but totally worth it. It's a shorter smoke than some, but great for a lunch hour treat!
Very tasty!
The Robusto - I'd like to see this cigar rated - Has to be a 90+! For the money, THE BEST cigar on the market today!!
The Obsidian White Noise is by far my favorite cigar. I just ordered a brick of the half coronas and they are absolutely perfect. This cigar is an unbeatable value and easily surpasses similar cigars that are two or three times the price. Try and Obsidian and you will be a believer. Obsidian Black or White Noise...both are awesome.
I am smoking the last Double Perfecto Obsidian White Noise I have. Therefore, I will be looking for a deal on any of the sizes, even though the normal cost is quite reasonable. Less than 4 bones for a 6" X 60rg vitola of this quality is more than fair. $2.50 for the corona is also good. A medium bodied smoke, White Noise is a wonderful follow up to the original blend. Draped with a habano wrapper that enhances its spicy profile, White Noise is a winner. Earthy & rich with pepper, anise & oak, volumes of smoke accompany each puff.... White Noise is very enjoyable, smooth & satisfying. For a fullhead like myself, it is a nice change of pace, that goes well with morning coffee or afternoon tea. Recommended to anyone looking for a solid medium bodied, economical cigar. 90/100
....Poor construction. Wrapper split in several places and completely unravelled before the end of the first 3rd. Not enjoyable whatsoever. I got the Obsidian White Noise in the Backyard Boogie Sampler (I believe it was a substitute for another stick that became unavailable.) To say the least, I'm glad I only had one to smoke...
When I first lit this cigar I thought, "not much going on here". But as I got into it I really got to like it and now it is one of my favorite go to cigars. A little pepper, nuts, cream. I really like what Pinar has been releasing over the past few years. IMHO, great quality cigars!
I tried these when they were still known as Blend Lab SD-5554's and I'm glad they made them into a full-time brand cigar. It is a night and day pairing with the regular Obsidian Black version. The white noise is a very smooth, creamy smoke cigar with almost none of the hit you get with its black counterpart. It is more meaty in taste than just an average Connecticut shade type cigar though and is well put together and smokes very long and very evenly throughout the stick.
Terrific stick, suits my taste to a T. At this price point I will always keep some aboard, and in the rotation.
If you've ever stared at white noise on your TV and felt light headed or intrigued; this cigar should evoke similar responses.
Picked up 10 double perfectos on a daily deal & I must say that this big peppery vitola is more full bodied than the mini coronas I ordered last year. The strength intensifies as the smoke progresses, so be ready for a full hour attack on your senses. Spices & pepper predominate the experience. I like the blend, although some may find it a bit aggressive for their taste. Well worth a try, especially if you can find a deal.
I received my White Noise Belicoso in a trade w/ one of my BOTL. Well constructed caramel brown wrapper. I had no issues with the band as others have. Ash not flaky in the least. Now to the flavors. Ummm..ok...NOW to the flavors...hmmm..what flavors? Aside from some pepper at the beginning, I'm not really experiencing much. It smells awesome...very creamy n sweet. Other than that, not much. Not even on the retrohale. Granted, I prefer a fuller smoke, so perhaps I just don't get it. I've got another one resting, so I wont totally give up on this stick. But for now, I'd give it a "EH"...
This is my second review. I actually like this cigar very much. Keep it moist and it is very smooth with a great flavor all the way to the nub.
Not a bad cigar. A little rough at first, but worth the purchase and smoke. The cigar is a good for summer smoke on a porch with a beer.
Got a bunch of these in a sampler recently and wow, very smooth smoke and full of body and a nice contrast to the darker Obsidian black version, which was also in the same sampler bundle.
Good med-full cigar, a bit inconsistent on the construction. One was ruined trying to get that full stubborn band off, thin wrapper tore....
I received the Obsidian WN in a sampler pack. Upon light up, the flavor was flat and a bit harsh on draw. After an inch or so it started to come alive with a full body of flavor. I didn't have any issue as some fellow reviewers with a flacking ash. The draw is one of the lightest I've ever had, which made this a relatively quick smoke. The band that encases 70% of the stick didn't peel off very easy and added to a premature tear of the golden brown skin. I plan on aging it for a while in hopes of bringing out the flavor sooner....
I just bought a 5 pack of these (Obsidian White Noise Double Perfecto), and I've smoked every last one of them. And to this moment, I don't understand the bad reviews these have been getting. I fell in love with the original Obsidian (the ones with the black label), and granted these are entirely different. But they are still a great smoke. Lots of flavor, definitely delivered on the medium to full body I expected from them. Good flavors, lots of smoke, and you will be happy if you expect the same quality as the original obsidian, but expect the different profile of flavors.
I am smoking the first of five of these, which I received in the Summerfest sampler. Pretty good cigar, though like a previous reviewer mention, the ash is a bit messy. Flavor is good, and it has maintained a nice burn line throughout. Lots of spicy smoke and a great draw. Thing is, there is nothing exceptional about it. Maybe it's because I'm comparing it to the other smokes in the sampler. After all, the Diesel HOTD, Legado de Pepin and Ramon Bueso Odyssey are some pretty exceptional bedfellows. All in all though, I have enjoyed this stick and I am sure I will enjoy the other four as well....
These are certainly pretty, well made, and sport an interesting marketing technique. They draw smooth and easily. The wrapper tastes good, even while the cigar is not lit. However, the burn is somewhat hot and the flavor is not for me. A cigar for mowing the lawn or taking a scenic drive. Good with coffee or a cheap whisky.
Bravo!
Just purchased a box of the these sticks two weeks ago. A little impatient I lit one first night, first off there was no taste in first quarter to a half inch. got in a little more then it started to come alive a good amount of pepper and sort of a vanilla finish, stayed that way through the whole burn overall a good flavor. Letting them sit in the Humidor for two weeks made them even better the pepper mellowed out and was a nice smooth flavor all the way down. I would buy more without thinking twice .
A tug on an unlit white noise yields a strong grass (the lawn kind) flavor. This is usually the hallmark of a cigar I will not like. However, it wasn't bad once it got going. It was peppery but not in a harsh way. Though not a favorite, it is a good cigar and if someone gave me one, I would not refuse. My biggest complaint is it's like a Graycliff and drops hot ash all over. (I burned a hole in my pants).
I got this cigar for the insane price of 14.99/5pk...and for a 6x60 double perfecto no less...I was anxious to smoke this, because I enjoy the black Obsidian quite a bit...Lit one off the truck and it promised great things...After a week or so in my humidor, I broke out another one...Let me tell you, this cigar is every bit as good as the Black...Great construction... Wonderful smell...and loaded with flavor...This is a great addition to the line...Don't be fooled by the down right cheap every day price on these sticks, they are worth much more...
Received a box of Obsidian White Noise mini coronas today & just had to open them to try one before putting away in the humidor. I wondered why 2 out of 3 reviews had negative comments, but was determined to give an impartial review. 1st thing I noticed was the full bodied flavor, with a hint of vanilla & sweet spices. A firm salt & pepper ash develops as the stick is consumed. Also, the smoke seemed to mellow after lighting, ultimately becoming medium/full bodied, with tons of flavor & scads of thick white smoke. I do like the flavor & the hearty dose of spice, that only a full bodied smoke can deliver. Ultimately, I consider this a good short smoke, that will go well with coffee or as a quick alternative to a robusto or larger, longer smoke. I am excited to try the freebie I received with this purchase. 14 toro sized Pinar Del Rio sticks. That made this a great buy at $1.50 per vitola.
For background, I immediately fell in love with the regular (ie black label) Obsidians and ordered five boxes immediately after wolfing down the sampler pack. I decided to order the 5-cigar pack of White Noise along with my cache (the double perfecto). I have to say that I was extremely disappointed. The White Noise is immature, harsh, and lacking flavor. It is harsh the way burnt coffee is harsh (just an analogy, this cigar does not taste like coffee). Although well constructed and producing a decent amount of smoke and an ash that held together, I could not make it through the stogie, even though I tried to stay with it. With some difficulty I made it to the half-way point with it only getting more acrid and unpleasant to the point that I had to lay it to rest. The two Obsidian lines are truly black and white and completely different. If you didn't like black, you may want to try White. If you like White, you may not like black. It seems they are catering to two different groups of smokers, so as they say, your mileage may vary. I will be interested in seeing more comments on White.
What a great smoke! I have smoked 100s of different cigars over the years and this one ranks right up there with the best of them. Don't let the price tag fool you; this cigar is easily well worth $10-$12 a stick. Nice medium body, perfect burn and draw, gentle spices throughout, flavors & strength pick up a tad towards the foot. Thoroughly enjoyed this cigar (with a cup of coffee after dinner). Wish I would have bought two orders instead of just one! Will be in my steady rotation.
Two .. issues with the my first Obsidian White Noise. Neither will stop be from buying more of them at some point. I think I'll buy a box next time. Issue number one. When I removed the band (if it can still be called a band when it covers 90% of the cigar) I found that the wrapper was showing signs of coming apart. Thankfully it held together. The second issue is the ash was ... flaky. I kept having to tap it on the ash tray to keep from getting little bits on me. Other than those two issues I enjoyed the cigar. It burned evenly and it tasted great. The two most important things to me.
