Playboy By Don Diego

Friday, February 5th, 2010

I can’t recall where I came across the cigar up for review today. Apparently I picked some up and threw them into the pile of cigars to be reviews. The only information I have is that the Playboy is a brand by Altadis. Without further ado, I grabbed a glass of water and bring you my thoughts on the Playboy by Don Diego.


Wrapper: Connecticut

Binder: Dominican

Filler: Dominican

Size: Robusto 5 x 50

Price: $7 to $8.00


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

Overall the cigar looked nice. The wrapper had a few small veins, and smelled basically like cedar. The foot had a woody, sweet smell to it. The entire cigar was firmly packed, with only a small soft spot or two. The pre-light draw was free, and had hints of cedar  and earthiness.

The burn required no corrections, and the ash held just short of an inch.



The first third consisted of a simple woody flavor with earthy undertones. The smoke feel became somewhat creamy with a toasty aftertaste.


The second third didn’t offer a lot of change. A buttery component entered the flavor profile, and went nicely with woody and toasty notes. The earthy undertones remained. There wasn’t anything more to it than that.


The buttery flavors picked up in the last third, while the toasty aftertaste remained the same. The earthy undertones went away for the most part. The woody flavors remained at about the same strength as before.



This was a good mild cigar. The flavors told me it was a typical Connecticut wrapped cigar. There wasn’t really anything new brought to the table. I could see this being paired with morning coffee. Anything other then that would probably bore me. My final verdict… If you like mild, simple flavored cigars, this one may be for you. As for me, I think for the price the Playboy should bring more to the table.
