For starters I had seen some marketing for these cigars a couple months ago when Brian, the owner of The Smokey Cigar asked me if I knew anything about them.  I told him I did not.  Then today, here they are in stock at The Smokey Cigar.  Brian said he would give them a shot and hopefully they would taste as good as they look.

The cult cigar line is brought to us by Quality Importers, and is rolled by boutique cigar makers TACASA out of Esteli, Nicaragua.

The cigar is light brown in color and seems to be lighter than most of the other Ecuadorian habano wrapped cigars that I have smoked.  The band of this cigar is what immediately caught my attention.  The base color of the band is white with some gray designs to it.  The word “Cult” is imprinted in red across the center of the band.  The band design is very attractive.

The Cult classic is a medium bodied cigar.  Flavor wise, I was a bit let down by this cigar.  I did get some light woody notes to it, but overall it seemed very one-dimensional.  The flavor overall was not bad in any way, it just seemed to be lacking something.

The burn and ash of this cigar was excellent, perfect even burn throughout that required no touch ups.  The ash held firm and only fell when ashed.  The smoke was thick and white.

Box worthy?  For me, probably not.  The Cult classic was a bit on the mild side for me.  Was it bad, no, just a little lacking for my tastes.  Should you try it?  Of course.  No ones palettes are the same, and for those who like a milder medium cigar, this may be a great fit for you.
