Bodega Premium Blends was founded by three friends and is run by Gino Domamico, also know as Cigar_G on Twitter.  The company currently has two cigars available, the Bodega Reunión Aperitivo which we are reviewing today and the Bodega Reunión Digestivo.   The Reunión Aperitivo is available in 10 count boxes and is also available in a split box (10 of each) with the Digestivo.  Bodega Premium Blends lines are distributed by House of Emilio.

The Bodega Reunión Aperitivo hits high in the looks department.  The Nicaraguan Habano Claro wrapper is a light to medium shade of brown and has minimal veining.  The cigar is topped with an excellently done triple cap.  The artwork on the band is bright and vibrant featuring shades of red, gray, purple, and silver/chrome.  The main band reads “Reunión” with a tree in the background, while a secondary band reads “Aperitivo” and “Bodega” in a smaller font below.  The mix of design and the color scheme of the bands work very well together and make the cigar stand out in any humidor.

Flavor wise this cigar hit on all cylinders!  As I cut and took my first draw of the Bodega Reunion Aperitivo I was instantly greeted with some strong earthy flavors.  These flavors developed well throughout the cigar as well as some strong wood notes that developed a few puffs in.  About a quarter of the way through this cigar a sweet citrus like flavor as well as a nuttiness began to appear.  Once I reached the half way point I also began to detect some hints of cocoa as well as the slightest bit of pepper to it.  The flavor profile finished strong and was enjoyable throughout.

Burn wise I did run into a small burn issue. I had to touch up a few times to keep the cigar burning even, a small issue and nothing that would put me off from purchasing this cigar. I will mention that I was smoking this cigar at night and there was a rather large amount of moisture in the air.  The smoke was full and white.  I will mention that this cigar did have a very pleasant aroma while burning.

To sum things up, this is a great cigar.  The Bodega Reunión Aperitivo features a complex but well-balanced flavor profile that is always a big plus for us.  Their entry into the cigar market with a $10 price tag is a bit on the higher side, but the cigar is well worth the cost.  So, should you try it?  Definitely, hit up your local shop for one today, and if they are not carrying them, tell them it is time to hit up House of Emilio for an order.
