Felix Assouline Cigars IISaints Platinum Joie De Vivre - Cigar Review by Kaplowitz

"Why not Kaplowitz?"


Felix Assouline 2Saints Platinum
WRAPPER: Nicaraguan Habano Criollo '98
BINDER: Nicaraguan
FILLER: Nicaraguan

FORMAT: Toro Gordo "Joie De Vivre"
ORIGIN: Nicaragua
STRENGTH: Full

NOTES: Black pepper'd wood & smoked meat overtones. Salted dark chocolate undertones. Dark and dry then oiled by stiff leather. Purposeful and powerful, yet nuanced & particularly complex on the long-legg'd umami finish. Burns even & draws smooth; smokes maybe a tick toward quick in first half, then slows as leather softens/richens even its very shaft. Even its very shaft. Its very shaft.

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


"Felix Assouline has had a longstanding relationship with the French jeweler and metalworker 2Saints, which has worked with a number of cigar accessory companies throughout the years. Following up on 2014’s II Saints line, the two have paired up again to create IISaints Platinum, a full-bodied Nicaraguan puro that comes in eight vitolas, all with French names." - www.Halfwheel.com
