I recieved a box of Victor Sinclair Primeros churchill cigars as a gift from a special friend. She told me there were her late husband’s favorite because they were so mild and pleasant.
I’ve left this box languising in my large gumidor for at least a year and today is the day to try one…
Packaging and presentation is classy and elegant, the cigars are all uniformly smooth with very little veinage. The ecuadorian connecticut wrapper is beautiful.
Prelight aroma is grassy with a hint of ammonia, like a milder cousin of the CAO gold. The stick is firm in hand and punches easily.
Toasting the foot liberates a pleasant and comforting blue smoke that immediately hints of the flavor profile; creamy and spicy.
First draw is quite effortless, smooth flavor fills my mouth and the cigar begins to yield a medium volume of white smoke as I continue to draw on it.
1st and 2nd third are identical, almost boringly so.
Final third of this cigar begins to concentrate flavor with a peppery infusion; leather and spice permeate with a hint of woodsmoke.
Overall smoking time is approximately 1 hour to the nub.
This is a nice mild cigar, it is probably too mild for some, but Isee this as a pleasant change of pace.
