Augusto Reyes Sixth Generation

Monday, August 1st, 2011

Where or how I ended up with today’s review I couldn’t tell you. Maybe I bought them and forgot, it’s hard to say. The only other Augusto Reyes cigar I have had is the Signature, which I enjoyed. I figured it was time to try another blend from this cigar maker. As you all know, I paired with water and here are my thoughts.


Wrapper: Nicaraguan

Binder: Dominican

Filler: Dominican and Nicaraguan

Size: Churchill 7 x 48

Price: Around $6.00


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The oily, shiny brown wrapper had medium to small veins with no flaws to speak of. The smell of the wrapper was wood and sweet earthiness. I could barely get anything when sniffing the foot. The cigar had a soft spot or two, but nothing drastic enough to be of concern. The pre-light draw was free and had a flavor of earthy, dark soil.

The burn required two minor corrections, and the ash held for about an inch.

The first third opened up with earthiness and pepper through the nose. After about a half an inch, cedar kicked in along with a tinge of coffee. Overall the smoke feel was dry and left me craving water.

The second third smoothed out and became somewhat creamy feeling, with a slight sweet note. Cedar was the main flavor with some coffee. Passing smoke through the sinus, I found the pepper calmed down quite a bit. While the flavors weren’t bad, sometimes the flavor profile felt dry and scattered for lack of a better word. Other draws were smooth and refined. It was strange.

The last third saw even more of a reduction in pepper. When passing through the nose, it was almost unnoticeable at times. Sometimes it had a little kick, but for the most part it was smooth and cedary. The core flavor was still cedar, coffee, and a smooth sweetness. I got that same sweetness on the aftertaste. It boarded on being cocoa. Overall the flavor profile came together nicely in this third.

This was a mixed bag, and it had no moments of being bad. At times is was lackluster, other times it was very nice. As a whole, it was a good cigar at a reasonable price. I would try these again in the future. As far as Augusto Reyes goes, I’d place the Signature over this one.
