Felix Assouline Cigars EGO Ocean Blue "Monsoon" (Toro) - Cigar Review by Kaplowitz

"Have you Kaplowitz'd to-day?"

Felix Assouline EGO Ocean Blue
WRAPPER: Nicaraguan Habano 98
BINDER: Nicaraguan
FILLER: Nicaraguan

FORMAT: Toro "Monsoon"
ORIGIN: Nicaragua
STRENGTH: Medium-Full

NOTES: Hits outta the gate like a bolder Padron. Wood and nuts but coarser and more black pepper. Edgy not sharp and well fleshed-out. Balanced. Black pepper pulls back then nigh out & in come leathery oils with a lavender/lilac lilt on their own white peppercorn undertone. Softens more, grows richer with well lit earthiness in an overall darkly roasted blend. Performs sans complaint.

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

I smoked (& spoke of) this EGO Ocean Blue offering on 85. Kaplowitz Radio Monday (LINK).
