My review of Puros Indios Limited Ed. Viejo

Puros Indios Viejo, Limited Edition, with "99" on the band. It was a lonsdale size cigar generously gifted by Frank Santos from the Cuba Aliados/Puros Indios thread in the Smoking Room.

The cigar looks nice, a dark maduro with a faint barnyard aroma. I like lonsdale sizes, and was looking forward to this cigar. Pre light draw was good, not too easy, not tight.

Upon light, the cigar started to tunnel, uh oh, but the flavors came out with a bit of spice, cocoa and earthiness. Not bad, I thought. However, getting a bit into the smoke, the tunneling got worse, and the cigar got hot. I worked with it as best I could to keep the thing cool, but it affected my enjoyment of the cigar a lot. It was somewhat creamy, and cocoa-ey with good tobacco undertones when on (the spice subsided early), but acrid when it would get hot, a total change. Finish was light and pleasant.

All in all, it had potential, but the construction was very poor, I would not be inclined to buy any if this is a representative sample.

Appearance - 9 of 10
Draw - 9 of 10
Flavor - 7 of 10
Finish - 8 of 10
Construction - 5 of 10

Score - 76 of 100
