C & C Loose Cannon 1206

Thursday, March 28th, 2013

While out and about recently, I randomly came across a cigar shop that I never heard of. Needless to say, the guy just bought the place, and he was turning it into a pretty nice looking joint. A good sized humidor, lounge, wifi, and plenty of TV’s were all in the works. Oh, and the guy was more than helpful. Either that, or he thought I was shoplifting. If you’re in the  Largo, FL area, it’s worth a visit. Check his website for more info. On to the cigar!


Wrapper: Sumatra

Binder: Dominican

Filler: Dominican

Size: Robusto 5 x 50

Price: $4.79


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The wrapper looked very nice, with small veins, and no real flaws to speak of. For anyone new around here, this may sound bad, but the wrapper had a distinct smell of barnyard. Yes, I mean animal poop. Don’t be fooled, this usually doesn’t indicate a bad smoking experience. The cigar was very firm to the touch, and the draw had slight resistance. The pre-light draw reminded me of hay.

The first third had no build up. It was a pretty even mixture of cedar, pepper, earth, and maybe a touch of black coffee. The smoke volume was thick, and had a dry feel.

The second third had the exact same flavors as the first. The only difference was a slight increase in strength, and a creamy smoke feel.

The last third had a nice mixture of flavor. In this order, black coffee, cedar, mild pepper, and nuts. The smoke feel was thick, and the finish stuck around for awhile.

This was a good little medium bodied cigar. As I often say, there was nothing new or special brought to the table. That’s fine with me, I don’t need that all of the time. This would be a good lunch smoke, or even breakfast.
