Review: Don Pablo Cigars
Well I’m in Chicago this week working and could not wait to get some Chicago pizza… If you ever get to the Chicago are look up J.J.’s Pizza Shack. This thing has about two pounds of cheese on it, definitely a heart stopper but so good!
After dinner I’m sitting here digging through my travel humidor trying to decide what sounds good. Decisions decisions! I think….well………..OK I think I will smoke….wait..no..AHHHH OK enough of that I will try a smoke I picked up while in Las Vegas. I found this cigar shop while driving back from the G2E gaming show in Vegas and had to stop. When I walked in I got a whiff of stogies and seen a lady behind the counter rolling cigars. The cigar shop is called Don Pablo Cigar Co. and it is located at 3049 Las Vegas South., #25 Las Vegas, Nevada 89109. The store owner welcomed me when I walked in and told me to light one up and hang out. I wish I had an hour or two to sit around and talk to the owner while having a smoke but that day I didn’t have the time.
This is a small shop that sells a small selection on brands, they mostly only sell their own line. What a cool place, cigars are rolled on site in the front so everyone can see. I don’t know if you can have them roll you a box while you wait, but I’m sure they will if you ask.
These have been sitting in my coolidor since June 06 and I have made myself wait but no longer…. So I hope this turns out good…..
Notes: Looks like they have changed bands. I believe this is the Vintage Line but I picked up a couple different kinds and got them mixed up.
Don Pablo Cigars Size: 50×6
Pre-light: The cigar has small veins and the cap is not round, it is oval. I found a couple small soft spots. It had a pretty basic cigar smell and a bland pre-light taste.
1/3: Nice firm draw with a good amount of smoke. The burn is straight as can be, very surprising since I found a couple soft spots. I can pick out a mild cedar flavor and this cigar is very smooth. The ash lasted almost an inch and dropped in the ashtray. The burn is getting off a little but nothing that needs corrected.
2/3: The burn went off a little more and I had to touch it up. Some spice has kicked in and I have picked up some pepper. The smoke filling the room has a nice mellow cigar smell to it and is not to thick.
Finish: It still has some burn issues but I have seen worse. The spice picks up toward the end.
Overall: I like this cigar a lot despite the couple of touch ups I had to do on the burn. It smokes a little fast for a toro size but is nice for a night you don’t want to spend two hours puffing away. It is a smooth cigar with a smoothness I have not seen much of with other cigars. I believe I paid around $4-$5 per cigar and have one more sitting in my desktop humidor though it is beat up from an airport issue. I will be picking some more up the next time I’m in Vegas, I hope I have the time to hang out a while. These are definitely worth a try for all cigar smokers, if you can’t get to Vegas you can contact them through the site.
