PLAYBOY by Altadis

Today I smoked the NEW PLAYBOY made by Altadis Cigars. As I opened the remarkable box they arrived in, I was quite pleased. I first noticed three caps and a well constructed cigar. A nice medium brown color to the wrapper with no large veins. The aroma was sweet and it felt right between my finger and thumb.

Country: Dominican Republic
Length/Ring: 6 1/4 x 52
Shape: Belicoso
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Sumatra
Binder: Connecticut Broadleaf
Filler: Nicaraguan and Peruvian
Strength: Medium - Medium 

I used a 4" match which came with the cigars to light it. It lit beautifully even. And as it burned stayed that way. A nice consistent burn to the end. The opening was citrus and a bit nutty. But wait as I smoked and watched the ash, it changed. About half way through it took on a coffee flavor. Very complex, very smooth and very tasty. A medium to strong cigar with full flavor body.

The ash hung on for about the first third of the experience. It was snowy light gray and smooth. All and all a much enjoyed event that I recommend to all.

It comes in four sizes. I smoked the Robusto. Price point around $7.95 - $11.95 but well worth it.
