Oliva introduced this new line of coffee infused cigars at IPCPR this summer. This is the first flavor infused offering ever from Oliva. There are three different flavor offerings, including Macchiato, Cappuccino, and Espresso. Each flavor is available in six different vitolas. The band has a smooth chocolate colored background with gold lettering and accents. I’d like to thank Joe from @BaxtersCigars for giving me this cigar to review.

Studio Tobac Reckoning

 

Brand: Studio Tobac

Wrapper:  Habano

Binder:  Mexican San Andrés

Filler:  Nicaraguan ligero

Strength: Full

Size: Toro 6×50

Price: $7.50

Meier and Dutch have teamed up with Studio Tobac to release the Reckoning. This is the first ever cigar with Studio Tobac branding, they are known mostly for the NUB (one of my favorites) and Cain lines. I really like the band with contrasting white writing on a black background, along with gold accents and the Studio Tobac logo.

The wrapper is fairly oily and has a nice smooth brown color. The construction of the stick is great with nice, deep leafy lines. I detect a sweet earthy scent with an undertone of black pepper spice. From the cold draw, black pepper hits upfront with bit of cedar flavor.

First puffs– From the first three or four puffs the black pepper hits like a punch to the back of the throat. So far the smoke production of this cigar is very minimal.

First third– The pepper has leveled off. As I puff away, the cigar is producing a pleasant sugary sweetness, also there is a bit of a creamy flavor mixed with pepper. So far I am really enjoying this stick.
Second third–  The creamy flavor is present with a hint of espresso mixed in now.  As the second third burns away, cedar and pepper start to dominate the flavor profile and the smoke production has picked up some.

Final third– The creamy flavor is gone and there is a bit of a leather taste. Smoking down to the nub, the spice has changed to a strong cinnamon flavor. A perfect ending to this flavor-packed cigar.
Overall this is a great tasting cigar. It’s packed with complex flavors that are pleasing to the palate. If you enjoy the Cain line I think this is a great cigar to try, as it brings the flavor up another level. This is one of the best cigars I have smoked!
