Dapper Cigar Co. Siempre Sungrown | Cigar Review by Kaplowitz

"Have you Kaplowitz'd to-day?"


Dapper Cigars Siempre Sun Grown
WRAPPER: Ecuadorian Sun Grown Sumatra
BINDER: Connecticut Broadleaf USA
FILLER: Nicaraguan, Honduran

FORMAT: Robusto (measures as Petite)
ORIGIN: Nicaragua America Cigars, S.A. (NACSA)
STRENGTH: Medium-Full

NOTES: Sharp liquidy notes of a forward pepper-spice led by peppercorn & cumin. That's coupled by bitter almond and espresso then cola -- enveloped in scorched and separately nutty earth. Sweetness comes on further in a citrus manner on retro-hale and finish. Said finish is quite lengthy and complex, with each note taking a bow therein. Goodly+ nicotine zetz.

Ash cracks but don't dump. Pack density holds admirably. Burn-line wobbles but requires zilch insofar as re-touch. Draws smoothly, evenly. Looks just pretty.

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


I smoked an offering of this blend on 112. Kaplowitz Radio Friday ((( link )))

"Drawing on the Spanish word for always, the Siempre Sun Grown is said to be a prime example of Dapper Cigar Co.’s commitment to continually craft world-class cigars. The line uses an Ecaudorian sungrown Sumatra wrapper from the Oliva Tobacco Co., a Connecticut broadleaf binder from Lancaster Leaf Tobacco Co. and a quartet of filler tobaccos: Nicaraguan leaves from EstelĂ­, Ometepe and Jalapa, along with a Honduran leaf from the Jamastran valley. The fillers from Ometepe and Jalapa come from Oliva Tobacco Co. as well, while the EstelĂ­ and Jamastran Valley leaves’ growers are not being disclosed. In a press release, the company described it as medium plus in strength and full in flavor." - www.Halfwheel.com (2018)
