Victor Sinclair Legacy Box Pressed

Friday, January 6th, 2012

It’s a common occurrence… I walk a shop humidor and something will catch my eye. That is the story behind the cigar up for review today. It had a nice presentation, and more importantly, the cigar looked good. Let’s see how it smokes.


Wrapper: Connecticut BroadLeaf

Binder: Olor Dominican Republic

Filler: Nicaraguan Viso, Olor, and Criollo 98 Dominican Republic

Size: Torpedo 6 1/2 x 54

Price: Around $6.00


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The chocolate brown wrapper had a smooth velvety appearance and basically looked nice. The wrapper and foot had almost no odor at all, maybe a slight woodiness. The cigar was solidly packed, with a tight spot here and there. This probably explains a draw that was a little tight. Almost too tight for my liking. The pre-light flavor was a mild tangy flavor that I couldn’t put my finger on.

The ash held for just under an inch, and the burn required no corrections. The draw loosened up a bit after the first third.

The first third had a dry woody flavor and earthy aftertaste. At times there were sweet dry cocoa notes. They would come and go. After about two inches, the sweet flavor began to dominate the flavor profile.

The second third was basically a sweet dry cocoa with wood and an earthy aftertaste. The smoke feel was so dry that it left me craving water.

The last third kind of fell flat. The flavors were a generic sweetness with a weird cardboard taste behind it. The smoke irritated the back of my mouth and created a dry cough from time to time. Basically the last third was complete shit.

This started out as a decent medium bodied cigar. Granted, it was a little boring and one dimensional, but it wasn’t bad, until… The last third. There isn’t much more to say about the Victor Sinclair Legacy Box Pressed. I won’t be trying these again. That last third was a killer…
