Warped Don Reynaldo Review by Small Batch Cigar

DON REYNALDO REVIEW – CALIFORNIA

Summary:  This cigar starts out with graham cracker and white pepper (specifically on the retrohale).  The flavors disappear an inch in and the burn starts swerving.  Bummer.

Some floral notes and cream in the second third, but I'm still desiring something more pronounced.  Just went out on me.  Hoping this cigar pulls a General Washington and doesn't let its defeats define it.

Final third and I feel wrong for having compared this cigar to President Washington.  A fleeting flash of chocolate on the finish and nothing more.

If You Like That, You Might Like This:  Working during Presidents' Day.

Pairing Suggestion:  Stout.

Purchase Recommendation to a Friend:  Single.

DON REYNALDO REVIEW – WISCONSIN

Summary:  Are you nuts for cedar? What I mean is: do you like cedar and nuts? If so, this cigar might be right up your alley. Those were the dominant flavors throughout.

It also brought hints of cocoa, cream, citrus, pine, and a generic tobacco note underneath the cedary, nutty core. It wasn't the most complex cigar ever created, but it delivered well on the flavors it brought.

The draw was on the looser side, but not problematic. Burn got wavy, but again, that never became problematic.

If You Like That, You Might Like This:  Nutty wood. Or woody nuts.

Pairing Suggestion:  Sweet tea.

Purchase Recommendation to a Friend:  Five pack.

DON REYNALDO REVIEW – OREGON

Summary:  Milk chocolate and barnyard scent were what I gathered off the wrapper from this cigar.  There was a mild soapy smell too.  The cold draw was a bit loose... stale bread for a flavor.

Oak, walnut, bran cereal, and a floral finish with a bit of pepper in the retro hale smoke.  Poor burn and flaky ash to start; almost thought I’d have to apply a major fix but it straightened out.

Transitions to sweet cedar, floral notes, mild pepper, leather and a soapy finish...it reminded me a little of some Cuban cigars I’ve smoked.  I liked the sweetness that worked its way into the mix.

Sweet cedar, sweet bread, leather, mild tobacco and green apple finished off the stick.  Pepper, walnut and cedar all gathered in the retro hale mix.  Nicely complex cigar!

If You Like That, You Might Like This:  Chillin with some classic rock.

Pairing Suggestion:  Cuban style coffee or HC7.

Purchase Recommendation to a Friend:  Box.

I've always been curious as to seeing if we could have each of the reviewers fill in a flavor chart and track overlaps and contrasts in the cigar experiences with each reviewer. But I'm just a huge data and stats nerd.

Joseph, I may have made that chart you're looking for the last 50 reviews....are you awesome with math? I'm looking to determine how statistically unlikely a certain event was.
