Cigar Geeks Geek Critique

RoMa Craft Tobac Aquitaine Pestera Muierilor

Cigar Geeks Rating

Welcome to another Member sponsored Geek Critique.  This one has been generously sponsored by our member clami (Clay).  The cigar provided for this round is the RoMa Craft Tobac Aquitaine Pestera Muierilor.

The Hype: The Aquitaine contains the same long-filler, full-bodied blend found in the US Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapped CroMagnon, including its unique Cameroon binder. However, the Aquitaine features a beautiful Ecuador Habano Ligero wrapper selected from the best tobacco we could find. This eighth and ninth priming ligero leaf is thick, oily and has amazing texture.

The filler leaf for this blend was acquired from three separate growing regions in Nicaragua: Esteli, Condega and a small farm north of Esteli on the Honduran border, Pueblo Nuevo. This third leaf, a ligero, brings a strong, smoky, savory flavor to the blend. When combined with the spicy characteristics of the habano wrapper, the exotic bite of the Cameroon binder and the clean finish of its viso and seco companions, the blend adds another dimension to the deep rich tobacco flavor we present in the CroMagnon.

This cigar was enjoyed with water

Pre-Light: 19 Points of 20 Possible

This cigar had a nice oily sheen to it, sum what had a sparkle to at the head and faded towards the foot. It was very firm with no soft spots, and felt heavy in the hand for a small cigar. It had minimal veining, with a dark to medium brown wrapper. It had a nice barnyard smell along the body with a sweet straw smell at the foot.

Light & Burn: 10 Points of 15 Possible

The cigar toasted up nicely and when I went to draw I found it very restrictive and had to double draw on it to get any smoke; I felt this was due to the roll being extremely tight.  Because the draw was tight the smoke volume was not good. The ash held just before the half way point before dropping, and it was a salt and pepper in color and stack. Only one touch up was required.

Construction: 25 Points of 30 Possible

The overall construction of this cigar was very good, nice roll, but very tight on the pre draw. The cap was well applied and cut clean. There was a slight crimping of the wrapper up by the cap but did not cause any problems. After the half way point I cut a little bit more of the cap off and the cigar opened up a bit more, and was less restrictive.

Flavor: 30 Points of 35 Possible

The first half of this cigar was smooth with a slight white pepper taste, along with some coffee, and a sweet grassy taste. The draw was very tight and I had a problem getting enough smoke to be able to pick up the flavors. Just past half way I decided to cut a little more of the cap which improved the draw and smoke volume. I noticed some leather, a little oak, and the coffee. It was on the mild said for me.

Summary

Overall it was not a bad cigar I liked the size it made for a quick smoke just a little over an hour. I just wish the draw would have been better on the first half. I would keep some of these around and would like to try other sizes. I would like to thank Clay for giving me a chance to review this cigar.
