Gordo Expensive, but a good taste. It also burns slow, so it's not ideal for a quick smoke. 5 5 1
Gordo This cigar has a nice draw and is well constructed. It looks like a fine cigar until you take a couple of draws.....its a tongue burner...(not a peppery taste like some experts describe it) 3 5 1
Gordo Cigar Review: Montecristo Crafted by AJ Fernandez Gordo (6x58) Wrapper: Ecuador Sumatra (oscuro) Binder: San Andrés Filler: Honduras / Nicaragua Origin: Nicaragua Strength: Full APPEARANCE A gorgeous huge box-pressed cigar with a nice oily dark brown (not quite Maduro) wrapper, featuring minimal veins, tight seams, and a quality double-cap. Tobacco fill is solid from head to toe. There's a beautiful off-white band layered with red lettering and gold outline. Especially of note is a long sleeve with the same color scheme which covers most of the cigar body like a tightly, beautiful dress. COLD AROMA / DRAW Wonderful cocoa and cedar scent with a hint of pepper on the noggen. Using a straight-cut, I had a similar profile on the cold draw through a perfect resistance for this big stick. PAIRING - Blend of Folgers Columbian, Boston's Best Hawaiian Coconut, and Bustelo coffee. EXPERIENCE After lighting her up with a Prometheus Triple Torch lighter, I quickly felt the full strength of this stick. Not overwhelming, just very flavorful and meaty. The spice was upfront and person - in a nice way. On the palate I were coffee and cocoa flavors with a nice peppery kick. Wonderful whispy smoke output giving off a lovely cedar scent. Retrohale had some woody cedar and pepper which at first was very spicy, however, simmered down after five minutes. Burn was straight with solid white ash. Whilst smoking I had a phone call that lasted 5 minutes and I didn't touch the cigar. It started to burn uneven on one end but quickly corrected itself after a few minutes - now that's QUALITY!! CONCLUSION This is easily one of my top 10 cigars; perfect for that after-steak meal. Everything about this cigar screamed PERFECTION! It's not surprising, though, when you mix one of the best cigar companies with one of the best cigar blenders. RATING: 1. Appearance and construction (5/5) 2. Flavor (5/5) 3. Smoking characteristics (5/5) 4. Overall experience (5/5) Final Rating: 100 5 5 1
Gordo Fantastic full flavored and full bodied cigar. 5 5 1
