Phillies chocolate

This is another flavored cigar that was send to me by an American friend as a joke, he already relieved me from my duties to review it, but I gave him my word and what am I if my word isn’t good enough anymore? The other reviews can be found on my blog too.

This is a 5 inch ring 41 cigar with a dark wrapper, nice and clean, but it’s no real tobacco. The wrapper is tobacco paper. There is a little hole in the back so you don’t need to cut the cigar. The aroma is sweet and not recognizable.

At the predraw I could actually taste some chocolate, but a cheap, bad, chemical chocolate while I like the high quality dark chocolate. After lighting the cigar the chocolate flavor disappears and it’s just a chemical sweetness.

The tobacco paper leaves a strange ash, but the draw, smoke and burn are good. This isn’t a good cigar, no way, but it is not as worse as the Lars Tetens Gorillafinger or the Phillies Peach and White Owl pineapple I smoked before.

Would I buy this cigar again? A simple NO is the answer to this question.

Phillies peach

Someone, a friend on Cigar Asylum listening to the nickname Volt, send me some flavored cigars for me to review. Why? Probably for fun, his fun, because he didn’t do me a favor. But there will be revenge, I promise!

This small 5 inch ring 41 cigar has a heavy peach smell, reminds me to bubblegum, the bubblegum I didn’t like as a kid, so why do I try to smoke something like that 25 years later? I must have lost my mind. The band is ugly, but that fits the cigar.

The predraw is fine and the aroma is sweet. Low down dirty sweet, disgusting. After lighting the cigar it tastes like sweet thick peach flavored lemonade. A very chemical flavor which almost makes me puke, but somehow I seem to get used to the flavor because the urge to puke fades away the longer I smoke the cigar. It keeps disgusting though.

Would I buy this cigar again? Hell no!
