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.

Wrapper: Ecuadorian Sumatra
Binder: Connecticut Broadleaf

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.
