Today is my third in this series on the new blends from Regius. The first can be found here, and the second here. Like the others I’m not sure about the makeup of this cigar other than the binder and filler are probably Nicaraguan. This was the first one of these I smoked.
The wrapper on this sample was a very dark brown in color. It showed a pretty good amount of tooth and some oils. As with the other two blends the top band is the familiar Regius band with the bottom telling you what the blend is. When I gave it a squeeze there was a slight amount of give without any soft spots. Putting my nose to the wrapper I got the aroma of chocolate with barnyard coming from the foot. After clipping it and taking a cold draw I got hints of cocoa with a good draw.
It starts off with a good amount of spice on the retohale with flavors of chocolate, leather, and cinnamon. The cigar was at the upper end of medium strength to start. Once I moved in the second third the spice mellowed out a bit. The flavors changed to coffee, earth, leather, and cinnamon with a slightly sweet finish. Even with the spice diminishing the strength built to medium full during this third. The final third saw the cigar edge slightly up to the bottom end of full strength. The flavors were also similar to the second third of coffee, earth, leather and cola with a sweet finish.
I didn’t have any draw issues at all and the burn while only slightly wavy didn’t need any correction.
As with the others in this line $7 is a great price.
Of the cigars I’ve had in this series so far this is definitely the one that I’ve liked most. Even though there wasn’t a huge amount of change the flavors were most enjoyable. I would definitely keep this one on hand myself. If you want to try them for yourself head over to our sponsor SmallBatchCigar.com.
