I have learned a lot about Regius cigars from our buddy Catfish and he has gotten me into a few good conversations with Akhil. Who is an interesting guy for sure, and has been gracious enough to share his cigars, which is great since I can not find them anywhere else. ;) A few days ago I finally got around to lighting up this White Label, and I was very pleasantly surprised.

Quick Note: For this review I used the CF rating system. You can view it in detail here.

To start with, the Regius label is very regal and classic looking. And the secondary "white label" blends well with this style, as you can see. Besides being a great looking cigar with clean construction, the aroma is just as nice. I got a very pleasant, earthy-sweet leather note. I know that's quite a few notes, but think about it and you will understand what I was getting. :)

Yea, that is the first break on the ash. A VERY solid and perfectly consolidated ash, all the way into the second third. So, yea, construction on this cigar is bar none. On to the flavors, just as good. It starts with a sweet oak and a slightly spicy tobacco note, which is tingly on my tongue. As it progresses the notes take on a dry, powder-like feel, yet are still wet on the tongue. The end of this third has a very sweet cedar note that has a syrup/honey-like sweetness. Then it's a dark molasses note. And then back to honey again. Delicious.

The second third of the Regius White Label continues much the same as the first. The burn line and ash are just razor sharp and the smoke is nice and thick. The flavors are of a deep, honey sweetness, with a medium on finish of honey. It's great, the same aftertaste as eating a spoonful of honey.

The burn continues to be dead on and I never have to touchup anything. The final third starts with the deep honey notes for a while longer. Believe me though, there are no complaints here as I am enjoying the profile fully. The last bit of the White Label shifts it up and becomes more woody, mostly oak, with a somewhat nutty finish.

The Regius White Label is a solid smoke. I can't say enough about a cigar that requires zero relights or even touchups and I love a great ash. The flavor profile, while not overly complex, is very tasty and does change enough to keep my attention. I'd have no problem smoking plenty more of these, and suggest that you give these a try if you haven't already.

Hopefully it's written at least halfway decent. I was so busy that I almost forgot to post and had to draft this up from my notes late last night. Didn't really get a re-read and edit session. ;)

But, yea. I thought it was a damn good cigar. I'd go back for more for sure.
