This cigar is a nice alternative to change up the pallet.
This little pencil of a cigar is perfect. The price is right on the money. I buy a box or two from Cigars Direct each month. At less than $6 a stick, this is a real treat. You cannot buy a stick for this price of this quality. Cant be done. I like the small size because the flavors are intensified. They come at you like a roller coaster without the vomiting. LOL! Immediately, I get great dollops of cream and nuts with a bit of coffee and cocoa. The cigar is kind of one dimensional but thats OK. Because the flavors it presents are fantastic. Each puff presents a little different flavor. The stick gets medium bodied very quickly and it becomes full flavored instantly. I wish there was another cigar like it but it aint so. I will continue smoking this little spark plug as long as they make them. And thanks to Cigars-Direct for providing such a great price!
I like spark plugs. And the AVO spark plug is the best size and Ive had them all. This little firecracker gets right down to business. The creaminess and nuts blow up in a mushroom cloud of flavor, with a mild, rather uniform component of coffee and black pepper, and hazelnuts. Right behind that is just a hint of leathery and floral notes. I smoke cigars very fast. I know I shouldnt, but I do. I can put a robusto down in 20 minutes. Great lunchtime smoke or for the short ride home at night. And then I get a blast of sweet tobacco, spice and cedar. The other cigars dont have the intensity of the #9. I love the triple Cuban cap. It perfects the cigar. Into the halfway point, flavors of grain, ****** bread, coffee, cocoa and earthiness swing back and forth like on a backyard swing. This is definitely a gentlemans cigar. Its not a strong cigar but its a full flavored one. I like sneaking them into my local B & M and sit around with the guys and smoke my coterie of AVOs. I always buy a couple from the B & M at exorbitant rates so I dont get caught. Their AVOs are just too expensive. So I get mine from cigars-direct and do a little hoo-doo voo doo
This smoke started out medium but about midway point it became strong and overpowering with a sharp leather and lead taste. Had a great construction but lacked a bit in the flavor department.
