Felix Assouline Cigars EGO Black "Dark Lord" - Cigar Review by Kaplowitz

"BOO!!!"


Felix Assouline Cigars Ego Black
WRAPPER: Honduran Ligero
BINDER: Honduran
FILLER: Honduran

FORMAT: 6.5x56 double perfecto,box pressed
ORIGIN: Nicaragua
STRENGTH: Full

NOTES: Dark is right. Powerful as all get-out, too. Yet somehow smooth. Roasted bittersweet notes of espresso and dark chocolate. Stiff spine of pepper-spice woods eventually softening some via leathery oils. Beef jerky savory and is that manure I detect? Dense composted earthen core. Straight-forward but with superb depth & nuance. Performs exceptionally.

FINAL GRADE: A-
A 90-100 B 80-89 C 70-79 D 60-69 F 0-59

I smoked & spoked about this offering on 88. Kaplowitz Radio Friday. Give a listen.
