ACID Blondie

The ACID Blondie is a small piramide lurking somewhere between a corona and a petit corona. It is a nice looking cigar. When picking this one as the second cigar from my 14 cigar ACID sampler tin I did not have very high expectations. I had already smoked the Nasty and it was indeed nasty.

Well, the Blondie was better than the Nasty. It was close to being OK, but, in the end it was no cigar. There was nothing to recommend it nor to pan it. It was pretty much neutral. The little piramide looks nice, it seems to be well constructed and burned well, but the flavor was lacking. I expected more flavor from an ACID cigar, although whether or not I liked that flavor would define the cigar. Considering all of the things they did to this one, infusing it with 150 or so flavors and sweetening the tip, I expected more flavor. I kept smoking it, trying to convince myself that the flavor would come around at any minute, but it just left me hanging onto a cigar that never was.

I am going to continue my ACID explorations. I am two sticks into the sampler so far and will rate all of them. At this point I am taking hits for the team. Hopefully I will get a good one. The Kuba Kuba that I got for free at the bike rally was nice and I enjoyed it. But so far I have not enjoyed the other two ACIDs that I have smoked. One was nasty and the other one was mediocre.

If I used the CA standard of ratings, where I have only ever seen one cigar get rated under 80 points, the previous one that I reviewed, the Nasty, would get a 79 and this Blondie would rate a little higher at 83.
