Cigar Geeks Geek Critique

Casa Turrent 1880 Supremo

Cigar Geeks Rating

Welcome to another Member sponsored Geek Critique.  This one has been generously sponsored by our member nirab (Brian).  The cigar provided for this round is the Casa Turrent 1880 Supremo.

Casa Turrent 1880 premium handmade cigars pay tribute to the year the Turrent family entered the tobacco growing business in their native home of Mexico. Fittingly, it’s made with primarily all Mexican tobaccos that include a San Andrés wrapper, criollo 98 binder, and fillers from a rare vintage 2007 Negro San Andrés crop, along with Mexican criollo 98’ and a bit of criollo 98’ leaves from Nicaragua. This time-consuming, carefully planned recipe results in a smoke that Alejandro Turrent deemed as one of their best blends ever! The well-seasoned cigar aficionado will experience an intensely delicious medium body smoke brimming with highly complex notes of coffee, wood, toasted almond, warm spice, cinnamon, and a rich buttery sweetness on the finish.

This cigar was enjoyed with Water

Pre-Light: 18 Points of 20 Possible

This cigar was a dark brown with some veining, dry looking wrapper, the cap looked well applied. I didn't get much of a aroma along the barrel, however there was a sleight sweet floral smell at the foot. The barrel was extremely hard very solid with no soft spots. The cap cut clean, and the pre draw was very good. Not what I expected form the barrel be so hard.

Light & Burn: 15 Points of 15 Possible

The foot toasted up nicely and the opening draw provided ample smoke. The burn was good with just a small amount of wavering. Only one relight was required that was by caused by me. The ash was a nice white and I taped it about 1/2 inch. Burn rate was good the smoke volume was also good. No touch ups were required.

Construction: 27 Points of 30 Possible

The construction was very good on this cigar. You could barely see the seams, and the cap was tripled. The draw was much better than expected due to the firmness of the roll, it had little to no resistance.

Flavor: 30 Points of 35 Possible

The opening draw was of a sweet floral note along with a bit of spice and coffee in the mix. The floral went away fairly quickly and the coffee and a earthy mix came into play. During the 2nd part some leather and some dry wood somewhat close to a oak flavor. the last 3rd stay with the coffee notes with a small amount of a chocolate note at the very end. Overall smoke time just shy of 2hrs. I would say that it fell between medium to full on strength.

Summary

Overall this is a very good cigar and would most defiantly smoke again. Although it was not overly complex it was enough to hold my attention. Thanks Brian for letting me in on this review and thanks for sponsoring.
