Te-Amo Revolution

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

Some local shops are starting to get new IPCPR releases from Altadis. Why travel all the way to IPCPR, when I can just wait awhile? That’s just what I did, nothing. Naturally, what caught my eye was the extreme oval shape, and the no frills band. The price was decent as well, so I had to pick a few up.


Wrapper: San Andres Habano

Binder: San Andres Corojo

Filler: Nicaraguan, San Andres Negro, San Andres Corojo

Size: Robusto Ovalado 5 1/4 x 56

Price: Around $6.00


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

Where have I seen an oval shaped cigar before? Ooh that’s right, <click> The wrapper did look nice though, and it was more oval shaped than the San Latano. The smell of the wrapper and foot was spice and earth. The cigar was solidly packed, with only a slight squish when squeezed. The draw had slight resistance, and the pre-light flavor was wood and earthiness.

The first two thirds required several burn corrections, and the flaky ash held for just about an inch.

The first third had earthiness, cedar, and a mild spice. I picked up a floral component towards the end of this third. The smoke feel was dry, but not too dry.

The second third kept the same basic flavors, but they seemed rich and more refined. The smoke became thicker, and it had a sweet finish. To recap, there was earth, wood, mild pepper, and an interesting floral note. Simple, but not bad.

The last third became very well balanced. While there were no new flavors introduced, the existing ones melded together nicely. The aftertaste became sweet and tingly.

This was a decent medium bodied cigar. There was no wow factor at all, but I did enjoy the gradual build of flavors. Construction was good, and it was just what I expected from such an oddly shaped cigar. I could see this going well with coffee. Smoke it, see for yourself.
