Black Cat Dominican No.4

A friend gave me this cigar, a brand I never heard of, and when I googled I found out that these are the houseblend of the Black Cat cigar company, a B&M in Pennsylvania. They have several blends, the one I had was the Dominican No.4, a 4¾x50 robusto blended by Henke Kelner, who’s famous for his work for Davidoff and Avo. The cigar has a Connecticut shade wrapper and is a Dominican puro.

The wrapper is mocha brown with a few thin veins and looks dry. The cigar has a musty wood smell. The construction is good but the predraw is a bit on the hard side and is spicy and musty.

The cigar tastes like musty and sweet cardboard, mainly sweet and smooth. After an inch the cigar gets a little bit spicy.

There is absolutely nothing going on, flavor wise until I reach the two third mark, after that I taste a bit if a sweet licorice flavor.

This cigar lasted me a long fifty minutes, if it wasn’t for a review I would have tossed it. I got a reasonable amount of smoke which is medium thick. The ash is light colored with some dark spots and it is firm. The burn is great. This smooth cigar is mild bodied and medium flavored.

Would I buy this cigar again? No way.
