IMG_3564.jpgSome cigars are on the tip of every  smoker’s tongue, ” you got to try this blend.” There are other cigars which fall by the wayside or never get heard of except for a handful of cigar smokers.

I bought this cigar awhile back from Shamlux, a Granada Hills, Ca. cigar lounge. Honestly I forgot I had it so surprised myself by finding it in my humidor. The Matilide Renacer is  produced at Tabaclera La Matilde by the well-respected Jose Seijas, a cigar veteran.

Brand/Name of Cigar: Matilde Renacer Lancero

Country of Origin: Dominican Republic

Size: 7 x 40

Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano

Binder: Dominican Republic

Filler: Dominican and Nicaragua

Shape: Lancero

Price: MSRP, $9.00 single, I purchased the cigar from Shamlux Cigar Lounge

Where and When Smoked: Los Angeles, Ca. Lone Wolf Cigar Lounge, 8/7/18

 

Appearance/Construction: Classic Lancero style with a medium brown wrapper, smooth , semi oily feel. Construction appears a bit rustic with small veins showing but overall appears well made. The cigar band is a bit difficult to read as the font is on the small side.

Flavor/Taste and Aroma: First third: Opening with a pleasing smooth combination of cocoa, carob and almonds. Mild with no discernible spice. 

Second third: Still very mild , received some flowery notes  and mint. Thought it might deliver a bit of a spice kick but did not. 

Final third: An uninspiring  cigar with a bland taste and not very complex.

Smoking Characteristics: Stayed lit, clean without any issues or problems.

Conclusion/Overall Impression: Not a very complex review for not a very complex cigar. Left me wanting more but nothing happened.

Final Thoughts and the Numbers:  Cigars should leave you satisfied with a taste that gives you an experience  that both the smoker and manufacturer is proud of. The cigar was pretty limp.

Appearance: 3.5 out of 5

Flavor/Taste and Aroma: 2.8 out of 5

Smoking Characteristics: 3 out of 5

Conclusion/Overall Impression: 3.1 out of 5

Sorry but this is a pass for me. 

Keep smoking
