REVIEW: Augusto Reyes Epicur

Don’t let the name fool you: the Augusto Reyes Epicur is far from gourmet.

(I was going to say they left off the ‘e’ like they left off the enjoyment, but it seemed a bit too campy.)

This ‘gar does feature a sweet pre-light taste, and the smoke smells nice, but that’s where I have to stop singing praises and start getting real.

The draw is tight, the construction brittle, and instead of ‘maturing,’ this stick gets stale as it burns.

I’ve had my share of quality AR cigars in the past. Unfortunately, this isn’t one of them.

Stats:

5.2” x 50 (robusto)
Dominican Republic, Ecuador
Mild Bodied
Connecticut wrapper
