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.

Exceeded expectations
Was very hesitant at first. I AM a big PDR fan and when I saw the price I had no expectation other than a working in the yard cigar.. BOY was I wrong. Veru unique flavor profile. Smoked evenly, easy draw, lots of smoke.. definitely going to be a permanent fixture in my Humidor.

Decent mild cigar for the price.
Looking for cheap cigars I can smoke while at work. I tried one on the day of delivery, of course I will leave them to rest in the humidor for awhile. Constructed well, no burn issues so far. Nothing medium about these. Very mild, no body to it, nothing lingers in the mouth very short finish. That being said let's compare it with other cheap cigars in the same price range. If you do that then these are not bad at all. Solid three as cigars go definitely a 4 possibly a 4 1/2 when compared to comparable cigars. I do prefer more body though.

Nice Smoke for the price
Pretty tough to beat for the price. Good construction, even burn. Under $2 a piece? Can't complain.

Good cheap stick
I got one if these in a sampler, and I'd have to admit for the price, it's a heck of a stick. I wouldn't have tried this stick if it didn't come with the others i wanted to test out. The first light up was a bit rough, but that's only bc of the in yo face burst of spiciness well complimented by a sharp chocolatey taste and woodsy aroma. Retrohale for the oven baked pastry. Just before the 2nd third, nearly all the spices were gone and a creamy rich texture of thick smoke took over with hints of leather, toasts and the light salty sweetness of chicken broth made. Up the rest behind the perfect draws. Kind of like the taste of the seasoning of MSG. I know MSG really Jacks you up internally, but the flavor of it is indescribable. Especially for Chinese food fans. Overall, this stick reminds me of the Joya De Nicaragua "Antano" (not maduro) minus the head change. About to get myself a box.

Great Value
Humidor was getting low, picked these up for the free shipping deal . I will get them again, very good stick! Had a cup of coffee with Baileys to compliment. Started out nice and toasty, then got cream notes. Very smooth, and nice even burn.

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.

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 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.
