The Stogie of the Month for June is the Debonaire. I've never had one of these (and don't have any), so I'm looking to you guys to help get this started.
So if you have one of these, light that sucker up, come back here and tell us what you thought. Please don't be hesitant if you're new, or never reviewed a cigar. At least post a picture, what vitola, and if you thought it was good or not. If you don't have it, ask around to see if someone wants to do a trade, check with your B&M or your favorite online retailer.
Wrapper: Nicaraguan Habano
Filler: Dominican, Nicaraguan
Hmmm, I've never seen or heard of these before. I'll have to search around for one.
So good, I have had a few of teh corona and was floored.
I havent smoked one yet, but I hear good things. I will definitely try and pick some up!
Debonaire Belicoso with Phil Zanghi himself. Honestly, I wasn't smoking this for review, but just to enjoy, and enjoy I did. The cigar has impeccable construction and smokes beautifully. The burn is fantastic and just gives off obscene amounts of smoke even at rest. It starts off with some sweet tobacco flavors and some cedar and a bit of pepper on the back of the tongue. Medium strength. The middle has substantial substance to it, but I can't pinpoint the flavor - still a bit of tobacco and cedar, but slightly different. Definitely a chewy smoke - something I feel like I could take a bite out of. The pepper is there, but not overpowering at all - it accentuates the tobacco and cedar through the finale. Such an enjoyable smoke, and while the Beli isn't my favorite size, it is still so good.
Looking forward to this.
There are also available at Stogies World Class (who also happens to have Cain F lancero tubes in stock, too).
Debonaire Sagita Petit. Similarly flavor profile to the Belicoso above, but much stronger with a huge pepper kick to begin. Burn on this is even more over the top with the draw being wide open (even with a V cut). Power tones down in the middle, but the spice is still there. The sweet tobacco and wood coming through in spades as I enter the final third.
Damn I love this cigar but they aren't available locally for me..there are very few online shops that carry Debonaire, I'll have to scout some out.
Bump. Matt, you better start smoking a few more of these.
All I hear out of Matt is Debonaire...I'm surprised there aren't a few more reviews ;-)
I have no access to these or you know I'd post it here!
We at Stogie Geeks and Cigar Coop really believe in this product and what Phil is doing.
