    GOOD Cigar with a BAD Burn? Cornelius & Anthony The GENT - CIGAR REVIEWS by CigarScore

    GOOD Cigar with a BAD Burn? Cornelius & Anthony The GENT - CIGAR REVIEWS by CigarScore

    Cornelius & Anthony cigars are not any with which I'm too familiar. But, they've been around since 1866 (it says so right on the label), so I'm expecting a good smoke today!
    The Cornelius & Anthony The Gent Robusto is a great looking cigar, but there's a vein running down the wrapper that's cause for concern. After cutting the end, the underlying tobacco looks a little bit green. And, after smoking about a quarter of an inch, an uneven burn started to develop.
    Let's see how this goes...
    Brand: Cornelius & Anthony
    Line: The Gent
    Size: 5 x 52
    Cut: Guillotine
    Light: Torch
    Price: $9.68 - Luxury Cigar Club
    Wrapper: Ecuadorian Rosado
    Binder: United States
    Filler: Nicaragua, Honduras
    Buy This Cigar: https://click.cigarscore.com/fs-corneliusanthony
    CigarScore Merch!: https://click.cigarscore.com/merchyt
    Use coupon code  CIGARSCORETV  to get 15% OFF!
    Final Thoughts:
    On one hand, the draw on this cigar has been great. However, the bad initial burn only got worse, and it was obvious this cigar wasn't properly dehumidified and aged.
    Overall, the Cornelius & Anthony The Gent Robusto is just an "okay" cigar with a great draw and a terrible burn. I didn't love the flavors and I didn't think there was anything special about this cigar or the blend.
    If you're going to spend time and money on a cigar, I want you to love it. And, because I think you should spend yours on other cigars, the Cornelius & Anthony The Gent earns a CigarScore 2.

    The Perfect BREAKFAST Cigar? The Camacho Connecticut Toro - CIGAR REVIEWS by CigarScore

    The Perfect BREAKFAST Cigar? The Camacho Connecticut Toro - CIGAR REVIEWS by CigarScore

    Continuing my search for the perfect breakfast cigar, I found myself grabbing the Camacho Connecticut Toro. Camacho is a brand I smoked often in the mid-2000s, but after noticing a fluctuation in quality control, I moved on to other manufacturers.
    But today, I'm smoking a Camacho I've never tried before. The Camacho Connecticut Toro has an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper and a blend of Honduran and Dominican tobacco inside. Since there are no Nicaraguan leaves inside, I expect this cigar to be mild and smooth, perfect for pairing with my favorite coffee.
    Brand: Camacho
    Line: Connecticut
    Size: 6 x 50
    Cut: Guillotine
    Light: Torch
    Price: $8.69
    ]Wrapper: Ecuadorian Connecticut
    Binder: Honduran Corojo
    Filler: Dominican, Honduran
    Buy this Cigar: https://click.cigarscore.com/fs-camacho-connecticut
    CigarScore Merch!: https://click.cigarscore.com/merchyt
    Use coupon code  CIGARSCORETV  to get 15% OFF!
    Final Thoughts:
    To be honest, the Camacho Connecticut Toro was a joy to smoke. The burn was perfect. The rollers paid attention to the details. The draw was good. Like I said, a joy to smoke. As I continued through the cigar, the flavors of roasted honey never got bitter and the cigar never got too hot.
    Because this cigar gets everything right, including a rockstar price point, the Camacho Connecticut Toro earns a CigarScore of 5, and I'm looking forward to enjoying the next one!

    EIROA The First 20 Years Toro - CIGAR REVIEWS by CigarScore

    EIROA The First 20 Years Toro - CIGAR REVIEWS by CigarScore

    I grabbed the Eiroa The First 20 Years Toro solely because of how much I enjoyed the CLE Prieto, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Whenever I like one cigar from a manufacturer or brand, I'm much more likely to try another one. That's why first impressions are so critical ;)
    The Eiroa The First 20 Years Toro is a box-pressed toro packaged in a cream-colored paper. It was made to commemorate the 20 years that the Eiroa family has been in the cigar industry.
    After punching the end, the draw was smooth, and I could taste hints of the same ginger that I remember so clearly from the Prieto. Additionally, there are flavors of spice and maybe sweet chocolate in the first third.
    Brand: Eiroa Cigars
    Line: The First 20 Years
    Size: 6 x 54
    Cut: Punch
    Light: Torch
    Price: $13.99
    Wrapper: Honduran
    Binder: Honduras
    Filler: Honduras
    Buy this Cigar: https://click.cigarscore.com/fs-eiroa-first20years
    CigarScore Merch!: https://click.cigarscore.com/merchyt
    Use coupon code  CIGARSCORETV  to get 15% OFF!
    Final Thoughts:
    The Eiroa The First 20 Years Toro was a very enjoyable smoke. The draw was perfect, the burn was almost perfect, but the flavors were just ok. Personally, I preferred the CLE Prieto, but these flavors might be exactly what you are looking for. However, a word of caution - if you don't like the flavor of ginger, you will likely not like this cigar.
    At the end of the day, the Eiroa The First 20 Years Toro earns a CigarScore 4 - its a good cigar, but I think there are better cigars out there that I'd prefer to enjoy for the money.

    Flavor BOMB or Flavor BUST? The AVO Unexpected Passion - CIGAR REVIEWS by CigarScore

    Flavor BOMB or Flavor BUST? The AVO Unexpected Passion - CIGAR REVIEWS by CigarScore

    When AVO announced their Unexpected Series at IPCPR 2019, paid no attention. But, when I saw the display at my local lounge, I took notice! After smoking and reviewing the AVO Unexpected Celebration, I knew they were onto something.
    The AVO Unexpected Passion is the 2nd of the series for me to review. It has a beautiful red label and an equally beautiful wrapper leaf that's milk chocolate in color, with perhaps a hint of red brick. After torching the foot, the Unexpected Passion started mild, but still quite tasty.

    Brand: AVO
    Line: Unexpected Passion
    Size: 6 x 50
    Cut: Guillotine
    Light: Torch
    Price: $10.69
    Wrapper: Ecuadorian
    Binder: Dominican Republic
    Filler: Dominican Republic

    Final Thoughts:
    At about the 45-minute mark, the cigar was really unraveling. The draw was ok, the burn was even, and I never could get the sour, bitter, nasty flavors out of my mouth from when my palate got blasted in the first third. The only redeeming quality in the AVO Unexpected Passion was that it had a perfect draw.
    However, I think this stick was a fluke.
    I've smoked several AVO cigars and most of them are mild, well-made, and delicious. But, because I wouldn't smoke this one again, and therefore wouldn't feel right recommending it to you, the AVO Unexpected Passion earns a very low CigarScore 2.

    GOD of FIRE Aniversario 2016 - CIGAR REVIEWS by CigarScore

    GOD of FIRE Aniversario 2016 - CIGAR REVIEWS by CigarScore

    As soon as I saw the God of Fire Aniversario 2016 in August's box from Luxury Cigar Club, I was excited. The God of Fire series of cigars from Arturo Fuente are somewhat rare but highly sought after.
    This God of Fire Aniversario 2016 has a football shape to it. It's covered in a fantastic Ecuadorian Sungrown wrapper, although there's still a fair amount of vegetable glue holding the tapered foot together. The flavors are mild and smooth and a little bit sweet.
    Brand: Arturo Fuente
    Line: God of Fire, Aniversario 2016
    Size: 5 1/2 x 60
    Cut: Guillotine
    Light: Torch
    Price: $30
    Wrapper: Ecuadorian Sungrown
    Binder: Dominican Republic
    Filler: Dominican Republic

    Final Thoughts:
    Whenever you pay a high premium for a cigar, it better be flawless. And during my time with the God of Fire Aniversario 2016, perfect it was not.
    The draw was pretty good. The flavors became somewhat bitter and quite peppery in the final third - which means about $10 of the cigar was a waste for me.
    In the end, I think there are better cigars for the money. I think there are better cigars from the Dominican Republic. And, I think there are better cigars from Arturo Fuente, and those cigars come in at a lower price point.
    For these reasons, the Arturo Fuente God of Fire Aniversario 2016 earns a CigarScore of 3. It's an okay cigar, but it's not the best in any category.

    A 40 YR OLD Wrapper Leaf?! The Rocky Patel Vintage 1979 Robusto - CIGAR REVIEWS by CigarScore

    A 40 YR OLD Wrapper Leaf?! The Rocky Patel Vintage 1979 Robusto - CIGAR REVIEWS by CigarScore

    Before starting CigarScore TV, I had a love-love relationship with Rocky Patel cigars. However, after having a bad experience with the Rocky Patel Edge A-10 and the Aged, Limited and Rare Sixty (2018), I've got a more of a love-hate feeling toward the brand.
    With that said, today I'm smoking the Rocky Patel Vintage 1979 Robusto, a wonderfully aged cigar with a wrapper that has been aging for almost 40 years. The initial flavors were mild-to-medium.
    Brand: Rocky Patel
    Line: Vintage 1979
    Size: 5.2 x 50
    Cut: Punch
    Light: Torch
    Price: $14.20
    Wrapper: African Cameroon
    Binder: Mexico
    Filler: Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Honduras
    Buy this Cigar: https://click.cigarscore.com/fs-rockypatel
    Final Thoughts:
    I liked the Rocky Patel Vintage 1979 Robusto, but I didn't love it. During the middle of the cigar, I had a perfect burn and a perfect draw. Also in the middle third were some faint citrus flavors, like those of an orange or tangerine.
    However, at a $12-15 price point, I'm not sure this cigar is worth it. While there weren't specific things to point out in the negative column, there weren't a lot of things that stood out in the positive column either. And, the nearly 40-year-old African Cameroon wrapper didn't add as much to the cigar as I would have hoped.
    So, for me, the Rocky Patel Vintage 1979 Robusto earns a CigarScore 3. It's good; I don't think you'd be disappointed if you smoked one. But, I think the flavors could have been richer and more complex for a cigar wrapped in a leaf aged like this one.
