1502 Cigars Ruby

Global Premium Cigars-1502 Ruby

Size: Robusto 5×50

Wrapper: Ecuador

Binder: Nicaragua

Filler: Nicaragua

Price: $6.50

I acquired the 1502 Ruby that I am smoking for this review this past weekend at Lite Up Charlotte, where I had the honor of meeting Enrique Sanchez of Global Premium Cigars.   Enrique is a great guy, and did not meet a stranger at the event, or at dinner afterwards.  He also took the time to tell me about his cigars at the event.  The 1502 line of cigars currently has three blends, the Emerald, Ruby, and Black Gold.

The cigar itself is a very nice looking box pressed cigar with a medium to dark colored Ecuadorian wrapper.  The bottom of the cigar wrapper leaf is actually folded over the bottom of the foot of the cigar, something I have not really seen before.  The Ruby sports a very attractive deep red and gold band.

On the strength scale this cigar falls into the medium category, and features a lot of flavor.  The flavors I am picking up in this cigar are definitely an earthiness, spice, and some citrus tones.  The flavor combination of this cigar was very enjoyable!

The ash was  also noteworthy on this cigar, it happened to be very windy out when I was smoking it, and it held like a champ, only falling when I tapped it off.  The burn, which I was afraid, would be awful given the wind conditions remained near perfect as well, with no touch ups needed.

The positives:  This cigar smokes great, and the draw was effortless with lots of white smoke, as well as a near perfect burn.  The flavor profile was very enjoyable as well.

The negatives:  I only picked up one of these when I was at Outland Cigar for Lite Up Charlotte, and as far as I know none of my local retailers carry them….yet! (I will personally make sure this issue gets remedied)

So now for the big question, would these make it into my regular rotation?  You bet!  The cigar is great, and the price point even better.  I look forward to trying the rest of Enrique’s lines, and if they are anywhere as good as the Ruby, I will be buying many in the future!
