Bodega Premium Blends (BPB) has entered the cigar industry as the newest addition to House of Emilio’s stellar cigar lineup. Providing a “Boutique” cigar experience. According to BPB site, this cigar is best suited after a meal as Digestivo usually refers to: “a cocktail or other alcoholic beverage that is specifically served after a meal. The purpose of a digestive is to aid in the digestion following a meal.” I have already had the pleasure of smoking the Aperitivo so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the Digestivo. The rich chocolate brown wrapper just oozes with sweet tobacco scents. The double band on this cigar is top notch just like the Aperitivo’s, A silver tree with a red background, surrounded by a vignette with leaves. A second band adorns this cigar with the name Digestivo. Cold draw has a soft wood flavor with a hint of spice.
Overall a really enjoyable cigar that really has a nice full range of flavor. I can see why its intention is for an after dinner smoke, its flavors will overtake your palate and please the senses. Bodega and House of Emilio have a real winner with the Aperitivo and Digestivo lines, as I thoroughly enjoyed both. I would suggest buying and adding to your humidors rotation.
