MXS Tiago Splitter Review


Summary:  This might be the greenest non-candela wrapper I've seen.  The MBombay Gaja is the only other cigar in memory that struck me as looking a tad seasick.  Cheerios and pepper in the first puffs.  The wrapper is cracking up in a few places and I haven't even gotten to the punchline (bad joke or dad joke: you decide).  Solid ash.  

The wrapper hue may be messing with my subconscious because I'm getting green tea and vegetal notes in the second third.  Cream joins the party so now we're somewhere between zucchini bread and a green tea frappuccino.

The final third starts out floral.  It's blowing up on me a bit as I approach the nub.  Definitely a nice change of pace smoke.

If You Like That, You Might Like This: Well-manicured hedges.

Pairing Suggestion: Ginger beer.

Purchase Recommendation to a Friend: Fiver.


Blind MXS Tiago Splitter Review



Summary:  This cigar starts with strong wood notes, then adds in creaminess, caramel, a touch of gingerbread, butter, and black tea. The cigar stayed on the milder side. All of the flavor notes worked well together to create an enjoyable ride for my palate.

Draw and burn were both on point throughout the length of the cigar. No construction issues to speak of.

Overall, I found it to be an enjoyable cigar that I'd be happy to smoke again. It didn't hit me with a 'wow' factor that would make me rush out to buy a box.

If You Like That, You Might Like This: Balanced woody creaminess.

Pairing Suggestion: Coffee.

Purchase Recommendation to a Friend: Fiver.

Summary:  Straw and honey scents from the wrapper of this beast.  Take your shoes off, we’re gonna be here a while.  Fresh bread on the cold draw.

Yup, starting off with mild flavors of honey and bread and barely discernible wood notes.  The retro hale smoke carries a touch of pepper as well with quickly dissipating heat.  Add in occasional hints of orange peel as well.  This is earning high marks for construction right now as well.

A buttery mix of bread, honey, straw and mild tea flavors start the middle section.  Also, this cigar is simply perfect in its burn, draw and production of smoke.

Finishing this cigar out with stronger wood notes and lots of cereal grain flavors as well.  Citrus notes hitting my palate as well.  The retro hale is buttery smooth with leather, cream and citrus.

If You Like That, You Might Like This: Planning your first post travel restrictions trip.

Pairing Suggestion: Hot tea with cream.

Purchase Recommendation to a Friend: 5 pack.
