"Decent"

Review Notes: Pretty wrapper with distinct veins. Once lit it stays burning without any work. Reasonably tight draw. Has some minor canoeing, but over time it corrected itself so it didn’t require correction. The flavor is dominated by heavy earthiness over a hint of black pepper. Finish is toasty and lasts reasonably long. This stick kind of mellows out halfway through as the earth gives way to a nutty creaminess. Not much else to say; it’s not terribly complex. It’s basically a generic maduro.

"A Decent Enough Smoke"

Review Notes: The Experience: Initial Impression—Never having tried a Don Diego before, I was excited to try a Playboy Double Corona by Don Diego. What make me most excited about this smoke was the mild to medium strength associated with it, plus…anything Playboy is exciting. It comes by the box and individually wrapped in cellophane. I suspect this is done mostly as a way to keep cigars fresher, as the manufacturer knows that most people will buy them individually, as opposed to “By the Box”. This cigar is the epitome of how a mild cigar should be constructed: Dominican Republic wrapper and binder with a Connecticut Shade wrapper. Appearance—I must say that as cigars go, this stick was majestic. It has a light brown wrapper (thanks to the Connecticut Shade wrapper), both a smooth and veiny leaf which cause zero logistical smoking problem, a dry wrapper (which is not to say it was dry and crumbly) and a well constructed cap and construction. The only negative I had to say about the cigar itself was that, due to its girth, my guillotine cigar cut could barely fit the tip of the cigar into it for cutting purposes. I’m starting to feel like I’m writing for Harlequin Romance. While some would say that it’s certainly not the fault of the cigar that my cutter couldn’t handle such might, I think my cutter is above average and any cigar larger than it is merely a roller’s (or smoker’s) Freudian insecurities showing. I didn’t realize the size until I got it home and attempted to light it up that there was a problem. Lighting/Burning/Ash— So far, so good with this smoke. I found that the initial light and burn were both even. I had no problems lighting up, I had no problems getting the stick to burn evenly, I had no problems with it staying lit. I found that throughout the smoke, the ash was solid and white and the burn rate to be perfect. It wasn’t too fast (causing the cigar to burn through too fast, as such shortening the duration of the smoke), not did it burn too slow (which would cause it to go out when not puffing on it). This can also be said about it’s resting smoke, not too much smoke nor too little (both of which will cause the same problems as the aforementioned burning problems). Consistency/Draw—Again, to this stage I had no real qualms with this cigar. I found the stick to still have an even burn, particularly at the half-way point. I thought the draw was nice all the way through the smoke experience, but I did find the wrapper started to unravel about half-way thought (again, a problem I credit to a poor cut job thanks to my undersized cutter). Maintenance/Flavor—Here’s where I think things fell apart. I agree that it is a mild-ish smoke. I might even say that it’s too mild. I did note a slight spice to the cigar, which was nice, but nothing that really “Wow’d” me. I thought the cigar became very harsh during the last ¼ of the stick, so much so that it caused me to be unable to finish it. Reflection & Rating I really wasn’t impressed by this cigar. I was initially very excited about this cigar due to it’s mild construction and how popular the Don Diego line is here in America. It’s a smoke you can find in almost every quality cigar shop in the country, which is good if you’re on vacation and want to pick up something you know you enjoy. The problem was, it was a bit too bland for me and I found the final quarter of the cigar to be so harsh that I just could not finish it without fear of illness. However, despite my misgivings about the final one-quarter of this smoke, I would still be willing to try it again if pressed. For that reason, I would rate this smoke as a B-

"Hef Would Like It"

Review Notes: I smoked my first Don Diego Playboy without any pre-concieved notions, except that the attractive band with the playboy logo was probably just a gimmick to get people to try them. Well gimmcik or not I had an outstanding experince with this cigar and it had only been in the humidor a couple of months. The burn and draw were right on and the taste was on the mild side of medium which suits me fine. This robusto had a nutty taste with some hints of leather and spice early on, these gave way to a salty/creamy/sweetness in the latter half. Really a top notch cigar, I plan on buying more if I can get them for a price similar to the $5 a pop I found on cbid.

"Good, worth trying"

Review Notes: Mild cigar. Pre-light aroma was weak. Construction was very good with no problems. No re-lights and no touch-ups. Flavor was smooth with a very mild hint of vanilla. Draw was just slightly tough, but not enough to take away from the smoke. A little expensive at 5 bucks each, but not a bad mild smoke.

"Good mild cigar"

Review Notes: The Playboy is your typical good Dominican cigar. Very mild, smooth, creamy and the basic flavor is, I guess, vanil-ish. It's the same flavor from start to finish, nothing special, but a very relaxing cigar, good inexpensive alternative to Monte White, to relax you just before going to bed. Tastes sweet on the palete.
