Onyx Reserve – Cigar Review

SDC11532

Onyx Reserve Toro

This is a pitch black cigar!

The wrapper was extremely veiny with 1 very large vein running down 1 side.

The construction was far from perfect as well with some hard and soft spots.

After I cut it I could tell the draw was going to be fairly difficult.

Once lit it did burn pretty darn evenly which was a pleasant surprise, but the draw never did fully open up.

The taste was primarily bitter with mostly pepper flavor but also some hints of butter and almond.  Luckily the maduro wrapper provided a bit of sweet to counter the overall bitter flavor.  The flavors remained consistent throughout the entire smoke.

Overall I was not very impressed with this medium-full bodied cigar.  It was not bad in any way, but it also did not shine.  I would say give it a shot if it is in a sampler you order, but don’t go out of your way for this one.
