Sosa Underground

Friday, February 24th, 2012

Thanks to the folks at Sosa for sending me some various cigars. Keep in mind I have never smoked this cigar until doing this review. It’s a first impressions review. I have little information about this cigar company or it’s blends. I jumped at their offer to let me try some of their stuff. So without further ado, here is my first impression of the Sosa Underground.


Wrapper: Habano Nicaraguan

Binder: Nicaraguan

Filler: Nicaraguan

Size: 5.5 x 42

Price: Around $5.50


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The wrapper was a little rugged looking, but had no real flaws that I could see. The smell of the wrapper and foot was earthy and woody. The cigar was very tightly rolled at the foot and head. This led to a draw that was a pretty tight. The pre-smoke flavor was earthy.

Thankfully, the tight draw loosened up a lot after about 1/4 of an inch. The ash held for under an inch, and I had to do a few minor burn corrections.

The first third had a nice peppery zing that didn’t burn at all. As I got further in, a dark sweet earthiness and wood kicked in. After exhaling, the sweet aftertaste stuck to the mouth and lips for some time. It was a simple but tasteful flavor profile.

The second third basically kept the same flavors as before. The difference was the strength picked up a notch. The smoke feel became thicker and somewhat creamy. It was very enjoyable.

The last third literally kept the same flavor profile as before. The body and strength increased and may have went in to the full range. There isn’t really anything more to add about the last third.

This was a solid medium to full bodied cigar. When the initial draws were tight, I was very discouraged and ready for a bad review. To my surprise, things came together quickly. You could say the flavors were simple and one dimensional. But the richness in delivery made up for it. Would I pay for it? Yes. I think it delivers at it’s price point. Thanks again to Sosa for letting me try this cigar.
