IPCPR Review--Lighthouse Cigar

This review will be a little different as I was on a long car ride when I lit this one up...

I can find no information on the web about this, but this thing was presented in a wooden box with a sliding cover. The box was very attractive and I was anticipating lighting this one up. The cigar measures about 6/12 inches by 50 something (maybe just 50). The wrapper was dark and oily and looked beautiful.
Pre-light aroma was of hay and woodsy smells while the cold draw delivered flavors of caramel (like on a flan or crème brulée). I also tasted fresh cut wood.

This cigar burned perfectly, holding a nice straight edge and was medium bodied the whole way through. The prominent flavors were of leather and fresh cut pine boards on the palate. It did not get hot nor were there any burn problems. The strength remained a medium body till the end and I nubbed it.

Over all this was a pleasant smoke and made the ride enjoyable. Depending on price I would pick up more for such an occasion. Probably not an every day smoke.

I've got an e-mail in to a manager at a chain of stores, Lighthouse Cigars, in New Jersey.

These came from the Golfers Select booth. He said they were for the seasoned smoker.

I smoked this cigar last night. A beauty of a dark brown, well constructed stick. No issues clipping with the Palio or lighting. Pre-light draw was woodsy with some sweetness present.

A very nice draw with lots of smoke, medium flavors of tobacco, leather and some sweetness. A very even burn with no corrections needed at all. Cigar draw stayed pleasant throughout and did not heat up until the one-inch mark, which I find typical for all well-constructed good cigars.

I am scouring the internet for more information on these. The rep was very enthusiastic about this cigar and rightly so.

4/5. Joe Bob says check it out.
