PDR Cigars 1878 Capa Oscuro | Cigar Review by Kaplowitz

“Have you Kaplowitz’d to-day?”


PDR 1878 Capa Oscuro
WRAPPER: Ecuadorian Sun Grown Oscuro
BINDER: Dominican Habano
FILLER: Dominican Criollo 98 & Dominican Corojo

FORMAT: Robusto (552) pig-tail cap, covered foot
ORIGIN: Dominican Republic
STRENGTH: Medium-Full

>>>

NOTES: Thin fluid notes of French roast coffee & Mr. Goodbar, braced/pushed ahead by a (subduing outta the gate)hot sauce. Those overtones have undertones of cola and licorice, also thinly. Lacks some nuance and roundness. Bit of a dark mineral note on the finish, which drops off the table quite quick.

Burns on the slightest of wobble which self-corrects & smooths after the 1/3. Ash grows fugly but firmly. Draw is nice if not a tick hollow on the occasional pull. Smokes slowly and gives off a spicy licorice room-note of a moderate passive/active smoke out-put.

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