90 Miles Reserva Selecta – Cigar Review

90 Miles Cigar 2
The 90 Miles Reserva Selecta is a cigar made by Flor de Gonzalez. This is a nice looking cigar with an oily wrapper and a pigtail cap. Once lit up, this cigar is a delicious mild/medium smoke. We tasted sweet creamy flavor with some coffee, pepper, and spice. The construction was nearly flawless on all 3 review sticks. Overall, we loved the flavors and think that it is one of the best mild/medium bodied cigars out there. It is worth noting that this cigar has some strength, a lot of nicotine for a mild cigar. These are a great value, give one a try!

7:40 PM
IamDarren: pigtail cap is really well done.
7:40 PM
IamDarren: only one small flaw in the wrapper, otherwise construction looks great. After the clip the draw is perfect. Getting some cedar and nuttiness on the cold draw.
7:42 PM
StraightUpCigars: Wrapper has a lot of veins, but looks nice and oily. Draw is a hair loose after cutting. Delicious fruit smelling wrapper.
7:44 PM
Terry1: I’m liking that pigtail. Fragrant sweet smelling wrapper. Draw is great with a musty hay note to it. Ready to light up.
7:44 PM
IamDarren: yeah, lets get this thing started
7:44 PM
StraightUpCigars: Lighting
7:46 PM
StraightUpCigars: Wow, incredibly sweet and creamy start. Very mild.
7:46 PM
IamDarren: brimming with buttery smooth smoke, hint of spice and plenty of sweetness
7:48 PM
Terry1: Rich creamy smoke with a pleasant sweetness. Some pepper building in the retrohale. Plenty of smoke and flavor. Good start.
7:51 PM
IamDarren: Looks like this one employs a Habano 2000 wrapper. We should get some habano spice but this is supposed to be toned down and sweeter.
7:52 PM
StraightUpCigars: Flavor is building on mine with some cedar and spice coming in.
7:53 PM
IamDarren: This is the No.4 vitola 5.75×48. Got a 95 rating on Famous Smoke. Looks like retail is about 5.50
7:54 PM
IamDarren: Im just loving that retrohale. It takes that rich, creaminess and gives it just the right amount of spice zest.
7:55 PM
Terry1: Full flavors on mine. I wouldn’t call it complex yet. But I’m getting a distinct sweetness with a pepper kick in the sinus. The finish has that black coffee note. Good cigar, it’s keeping my interest.
7:56 PM
StraightUpCigars: I’m loving it too, it’s a flavorful but mild bodied cigar so far, been a while since we had something like it. It’s reminiscent of a couple Gran Habano’s we liked.
7:58 PM
IamDarren: I would say mine started mild but is now medium. Starting to change from cedar to more of a rich oak with a hint of char or maybe even coffee on the finish. Hint of pepper now in the sinus.
7:59 PM
StraightUpCigars: Had my first day at the new job today. Been a long time since I was a “new guy”. Met about 60 people and my head was spinning by the end of the day.
8:00 PM
IamDarren: I hope you get settled in and things go smoothly
8:01 PM
StraightUpCigars: Me too. Haven’t even sat down at my desk yet
8:01 PM
IamDarren: huh, tapped off the ash and let it rest for a min. and it almost went out. Smoke production really faded. Going into the second third.
8:01 PM
Terry1: I was a new guy on my early 40s. It is a weird experience when you’ve been at one employer for a long time. I had a hard time adjusting to the new commute.
8:03 PM
Terry1: My cigar almost goes out too if I let it sit a minute. So far it’s started up with a couple of puffs.
8:03 PM
StraightUpCigars: Good point, it’s amazing how much of an effect your commute can have on your life. Luckily mine is shorter now, but I bet Darren’s is the best
8:04 PM
IamDarren: yep, i feel for you guys. If im in a hurry i can roll out of bed and be to work in 20 min.
8:05 PM
StraightUpCigars: Mine is burning well, not going out. I did notice my humidity had dropped to more of a “dry box” at this point – 65% or so.
8:06 PM
IamDarren: im starting to like my cigars better at 65. At 70 i was having a lot more burn issues.
8:07 PM
Terry1: Another adjustment (in a good way) was the start time. I was used to being in the office by 7:00. My new office starts at 8:30. My first day I show up at 8:00 and sat there for half an hour waiting for someone else to show up! I found out extra sleep is a good thing.
8:08 PM
IamDarren: I like to wake up to the sun. Mornings when we are cutting or planting wheat and i get up early its dark and my body does not cooperate.
8:09 PM
Terry1: I’m a sunshine person too. Winter really sucks!
8:09 PM
IamDarren: Agreed, i could never live way up north. I think i would die from lack of sleep
8:09 PM
StraightUpCigars: I am struggling with that too. My old office was 7:00 to 3:30, but really ended up being 7:00 to 5:30 most days. New boss wants me at 8 to 5, I don’t know what to do with my extra hour in the morning. I do like driving to work in the dark, though, it’s kinda ominous and wakes me up. I’m a winter person
8:11 PM
IamDarren: your weird. lol
8:12 PM
Terry1: lol. My wife loves the winter. So it guarantees one of us will be moody all year long.
8:12 PM
StraightUpCigars: Lol!
8:13 PM
StraightUpCigars: My wife is a 100* summer person, so I can relate to your problem.
8:13 PM
IamDarren: im outside a lot of the time checking on cattle so i get used to the cold but then i come inside and the wife has the thermostat at 75 and i start sweating. Thats the worst part.
8:14 PM
Terry1: That sounds like us. Thermostat war every day.
8:14 PM
IamDarren: i don’t know if i burned through something but it was getting strong and spice there for a few puffs. Now the smoke production is back and it has mellowed back out.
8:17 PM
IamDarren: but she has to have cold air blowing on her face at night…. so she turns up the thermostat but then has a fan blasting air across our bed at night
8:17 PM
Terry1: The pepper is finally fading away. Lots of creamy sweet smoke. Burn has been near perfect. I’m liking this cigar. Can’t believe it’s been sitting in the review box for almost two years. I’ll have to dig around the bottom again and see what other gems we may have missed.
8:17 PM
StraightUpCigars: At the midway point and getting a delicious sweet coffee flavor right now. Still in the mild/medium body category for me. Really loving it.
8:19 PM
Terry1: My wife does the full on air in the face in the car. Whenever I drive her car it’s like being in a convertible.
8:21 PM
IamDarren: i don’t know who decided it was a good idea to make the vents able to be shut off. Whenever i get in the car she has her side blasting and my side is not even working.
8:22 PM
StraightUpCigars: I sure am happy about the vents b/c I can point all the AC at me, and she can shut hers off
8:22 PM
Terry1: Wait until she starts having hot flashes. That’s lots of fun!
8:23 PM
StraightUpCigars: We did an overnight float last weekend. It takes a bit for me to adjust to the heat, and came up with a new invention – an AC bubble you can wear when it’s 100 degrees outside… yeah I’m a wimp.
8:23 PM
IamDarren: oh i loved it when she was pregnant. There was a time when the thermostat was at 65 and i loved it. Good thing it was mostly in the winter or my electric bill would have been huge.
8:24 PM
IamDarren: lol, ok Mr. Outdoors
8:24 PM
StraightUpCigars: Only in the winter… or up north
8:25 PM
IamDarren: i have learned that once your out in it for a week or two your body will adjust to about anything. Its just the shock of going from hot to AC or visa versa.
8:27 PM
StraightUpCigars: Agreed, I have some extra insulation so it takes me a bit to adjust.
8:29 PM
IamDarren: i had some but my wife was on a diet so i kinda just joined in. Lost about 20 pounds this summer. I may have to bundle up more this winter.
8:30 PM
Terry1: Into the final third. Cigar has kept that amazing sweetness, maybe a little coffee mixed in. I would like a little more complexity but I am loving the flavor of this cigar.
8:31 PM
IamDarren: im just into the last third, mine has lost a little of that creaminess and the pepper is coming back but still very enjoyable.
8:32 PM
StraightUpCigars: I am really enjoying this one – the flavor and construction are both great. I agree, not complex, but I don’t think that was their goal with this one.
8:32 PM
Terry1: I’m starting to feel a nicotine kick.
8:33 PM
StraightUpCigars: Me too, melting into the chair but I can’t set it down.
8:39 PM
IamDarren: getting close to the nub. Cigar is still sweet and creamy. The spice has increased and now has a very herbal character. Some hints of coffee on the finish. Still very tasty.
8:40 PM
Terry1: Made it to the nub and I’m setting this cigar down. Got hot towards the end. Solid medium in strength for me. Good flavors. I agree with the herbal note. I got it too. Enjoyed this one.
8:42 PM
StraightUpCigars: Still puffing, but ready to rate this bad boy, coming up.
8:42 PM
IamDarren: just put mine down. Great cigar all the way. Nice flavor combos and could probably be enjoy this cigar any time of day
8:43 PM
StraightUpCigars: Overall, this is a bombshell in the mild/medium category. Would be one I would recommend to a newer smoker and those that enjoy easy to smoke cigars. Loved it.
8:44 PM
IamDarren: agreed, a great cigar to give to a new botl to showcase great flavor
8:45 PM
Terry1: Simple good flavors. Great construction. Agree with the recommendation. This is one I’ll buy.
