I stopped by one of my local B&M’s today to pick up some sticks for the weekend and came across the Duck Commander cigar from Ted’s Cigars.  I’m a big fan of the show and figured why not try the cigar.  Ted’s Cigars are also the makers of the Maker’s Mark cigar, Hopz cigar, Grand Marnier cigars, Rhum cigars, Dale Earnhardt Jr. cigars, and their original line Ted’s Made by Hand.

The look of this cigar is catchy.  The cigars come packaged vertically in a display box.  The cigars are packed in clear tubes with Duck Commander wrapping.  The cigar has two bands that are on reversed (see picture), which I would guess is due to the packing and display appearance.  The cigar itself features a light colored Ecuadorian Habano wrapper with light veins.

Flavor wise, this cigar was interesting.  I am not a big fan of cigars packed in plastic or glass tubing because I don’t think the cigars age or marry well.  This cigar to me, tasted very fresh.  The most prominent thing I picked up on was that it was bitter.  There were some good pepper notes present on the initial lighting and some good cedar notes that developed around the mid point, but overall the flavor of this cigar was muted by the bitterness.

Burn was okay, the cigar was fairly moist out of the tube.  I did need to touch it up a few times to keep the burn on track.  The cigar did produce a good amount of white smoke and held a decent ash.

Buy it again?  Probably not, I bought it because it was gimmicky, and I like the TV show.  I think for the price of the cigar at $11.30, it definitely missed the mark.  Like we always say, everyone has different palates, go out and try it for yourself and let us know what you think.
