Cult Classic – Rough Cut Cigar Review

Cult Classic


According to Cult Cigars, Life’s too short to smoke alone. I say I have to agree with that, and I am happy to have many friends and shops around the wold where I can enjoy a fine cigar with old friends and newly made acquaintances.

Today we offer the Stogie Press Rough Cut cigar review notes on the Cult Cigars Original Classic. I received samples of the Cult Classic from the company at the 2015 IPCPR.
As noted on the Cult Cigars website:
This is the original blend that launched the Cult Cigar series. A wonderful Nicaraguan handmade manufactured by Tacasa S.A. in Esteli that can be enjoyed any time of the day. A mild to medium strength cigar that’s packed with a tasteful blend of toasty flavors for both the novice and seasoned smoker to enjoy.
The Cult Classic is available in 4 vitolas:
  • Robusto – 5 x 50
  • Toro -6 x 50
  • Torpedo – 6.25 x 52
  • Grande Toro – 6 x 60

The Cult Classic  blend is described as:

  • Wrapper – Ecuador Habano
  • Binder – Indonesian
  • Filler – Jalapa, Nicaraguan

For this review I sampled the Cult Classic Toro

  • Slightly toothy medium brown wrapper with a reddish hue
  • Sweet tea like aroma on foot
  • Didn’t get much on the cold draw
  • Once it was torched up, greeted with fruit and cinnamon
  • Solid white ash
  • Razor thin char line
  • Smoke production is at a medium early on
  • Slow burn
  • Ash fell early
  • I pick up some more cinnamon spice in the aroma
  • Slight bitter component comes in at the end of the first third
  • Bitterness backs off and a cedar note develops
  • Cedar builds through the second third
  • A sweet flavor enters in final third with a hint of the cinnamon and cedar
  • Overall. a decent cigar
