Review: Remember Cuba RC6x54 Sublime Box Press

While we were hanging out around the RoMa Craft booth in New Orleans, we were approach by a man from a nearby booth. He was very passionate about and excited to share his cigars. This box-press is a very good looking cigar and I love the San Andres wrapper.

Cigar for review provided by Remember Cuba Cigars

Note: For this review I used CigarFederation's rating system.

Prelight: Very deep, earthy notes with lots of cocoa. A little bit of fermented tobacco and leather bite too. The cold draw is a mix of the leather and cocoa, with a little bit of sweetness added in.

Beginning: This cigar starts out with some dry cocoa notes, behind a mix of spicy earth & leather. Nothing is too forward or strong. It is a nice, mellow mix of flavors, with a low medium strength. The construction is near perfect, with a sharp burn and tight ash.

Middle: Entering the middle third, a dirty earth note comes to the forefront. On the finish, there is a dark chocolate flavor that comes out after rest from draws. The profile ramps up just a tad to a full medium in strength and body. The RC6x54 produces a ton of smoke and has not needed to be touched up.

End: The end began to get a little rough. I had to correct the burn a couple times, nothing major but it did finally happen. I also began to get some bitterness and the occasional sour note. It wasn't constant though, and there were some nice flavors coming out. But, overall this third was a bit of a let down.

Final Thoughts: Construction was very good on this cigar. The burn, ash and smoke production were great. The first two-thirds were enjoyable, but nothing spectacular. This wasn't something to throw down, but I just wasn't that impressed. This San Andres just did not live up to expectations.

Rating: 79 AKA “Muchin' Buddies” - I would save them for a friend who knows nothing about cigars

No problem. Not a trash cigar, but probably one of the roughest reviews I've given.

Yea, I wasn't trying to smash it. I have had ones that I would just smash, but this one wasn't that bad. Just fell too flat for me and ended on a low note.
