Review Notes: Feels light in the hand, but it's packed full of chocolate, leather and a sweet spice that I like a lot. Cubao has a different taste profile than the other DBG cigars I've tryed. It's also more of a medium bodied smoke. I paired it with a Fuller's ESB and the No.5 didn't overpower the subtle caramel malts and slightly bitter hops of the beer. I've smoked quite a few No. 5's and all have had very good construction and a slow even burn despite their lightness in the hand. Right now I have a beautiful 2" white ash contrasting the chocolate-colored wrapper. Others have described the taste as earthy, but I find no earthy tastes at all. The spicy sweetness against the semi-sweet chocolate is what makes this such an outstanding cigar, in my opinion.
