Pinar del Rio Icon

A little taste of Cuba for a fraction of the price.

Personally, I didn't care about this when it hit the docks. I even wanted to not like it from everyone around me singing its praises. My pride continued to get the best of me for a few weeks. Finally I came into contact with one and figured I'd see what the fuss was about. And dammit, they were right! So this one time and one time only, I put my pride aside.

Simply put, this cigar kicks ass and it’s as affordable as they come​. Needless to say, I caught flack, and it continues to this day because I currently have 3 mazos filling up my desktop humidor. Here’s the scoop: This impressive handmade from Abe Flores and Pinar del Rio swaps out the expensive packaging and replaces it with loads of rich, Cuban-esque flavor.

To create Icon, Flores chose a vintage Dominican Corojo wrapper – a gorgeous, toothy, reddish-brown leaf – and paired it with Cuban-seed Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers. This combination leads to a hearty, medium-bodied profile brimming with creamy notes of wood, coffee, sweetness, pepper, and a brilliant aroma of fresh baked bread.  In short, you’ll savor this one…and they’ll only cost you a few bucks apiece.

Pepper Taste
A Little too peppery for my Taste. The draw is tough. Didn't have an aroma of bread or coffee. Decent cigar for what I paid, probably will not buy again though.

This cigar is good and well worth the money. I do know that it doesn't burn good. I had many times have to relight them. I would still buy them

Overrated
Very loose construction. I could squeeze the sides easily. The burn was uneven with the core burning out way before the edges. Hot smoke with little flavor until about half way through. Had to relight repeatedly. This was part of a sampler deal. Could that have anything to do with it?

Smooth mellow taste, does not burn evenly.
The taste is smooth and mellow, easy to enjoy. The few cigars that I have smoked have not burned evenly, usually burns down one side needing to relight the unburned side. If it burned better I would rate a 4.

I decided to try theses cigars for my daily knock-a-rounds. I must say these cigars are now in my list of ones I can smoke while working in my shop or doing outs chores.

Bad Burn, Good Flavor.
I purchased a bundle of theses last October and they've been in the humidor for almost 4 full months now. I'll tell you the one I just smoked tonight started off with a somewhat tight draw but did loosen up just past 1/2 way through. Flavors are nice, sweet, creamy coffee flavor with just a little spice. The major problem is the burn, I must have had to relight it 5-6 times and very little smoke until the point the draw opened up. This is just the second cigar I've smoked from the bundle, the first was a bit better but not much. To bad, seems to be a cigar I could really enjoy on a regular basis.

Bundle (20) of Pinar del Rio Icon Robusto
I would rate the smoke a C+, although some of the cigars smoked too hot due to the core burning down much faster than the rest of the tobacco.

Good, average smoke.
Good smooth medium flavor. As good as any regular line Punch, Partagas, or Hoyo de Monterrey.

Good Smoke
I see 3 not so good reviews but let me say I'm on my 7th bundle and have enjoyed all sizes. The flavor is ample with coffee, cocoa and spice. The cigars have all been rock solid and while the burn is not razor sharp, I do get a great burn and sturdy med gray ash. I like many other PDRs better but this to me is still a solid line

Not bad, but I expected better from PDR. Inconsistent burn and draw really hold this one back.

SoSo
Flavor is good at the onset but gets too peppery at the end, almost a burn. Good draw but a terrible ash which separates and falls off without direction, constantly having to put the torch to it. There's no aroma of baked bread as described. Will not purchase again.
