Review: La Palina El Diario KB "Kill Bill"

The El Diario line is rolled in Honduras at the Raices Cubanas factory.   The KB "Kill Bill" weighs in at an adorable 4 ¼ x 40; however, do not let the size fool you as it is quite the little flavor bomb. 

Wrapper: Honduran

Binder: Honduran      

Filler:  Nicaraguan

Price: $6-$7

Cigars Smoked: 1

 

The pre-light draw gives hints of cocoa.  There are a few blemishes but nothing serious. 

 

The first third starts off with dark flavors pronounced by chocolate.  I taste aged tobacco and there is a hint of spice and coffee.  A woodiness develops towards the end of this third that compliments the overall profile well.  It is stronger than I anticipated but not too strong, right at medium to medium-full. 

 

Into the second third the woodiness continues with cocoa and spice.  Not much changes through this third but that is fine as I am enjoying the flavors. 

 

The final third begins with spice as the strength starts to build.  The cigar shifts into a leather profile and starts to get harsh with an inch or so left.  I let it go out shortly after this point.  Final smoking time was 1 hour and 25 minutes. 

 

Overall, I really enjoyed this cigar.  It had just enough flavor change to keep me on my toes.  It also lasted much longer than I anticipated.  This cigar rates a 90 out of 100, meaning I would split a box.

I love your review style Tyler. Anyways I have smoked probably 50-75 of these little powerhouses and I think I burned myself out on them. They used to be my favorite PC at one time. They have so much unique flavor to them (very concentrated).
