Review Notes: As someone mentioned, this cigar has been on the market for nearly a decade, and the quality has increased during this time. In general, Puros Indios has become a much more quality smoke, but this might only be my opinion. The actual ring gauge on the Piramide No.2 is 50, so Im not entirely sure what the deal is with the cigar information at the top of the review section. Regardless, this smoke is a quality smoke (gee, maybe this is flawed because I enjoy smoking so much). Notwithstanding that fact, the gar has good construction, the wrapper appears to be nicely rolled, not too tight and the draw on the cigar was easy and not stressed. Sometimes when you get a figurado with a head that has a slow taper rate (like a torpedo or a piramide) versus a normal churchill head that has a very radical head taper rate, the question is: how do you properly cut a figurado? You dont clip it like you do a churchill, slicing off 1/16th of an inch in an effort to get about 70% of the cigar cross section exposed. With this cigar, you have to go about 1/4 of an inch to get a proper cut, but cutting much more seems to really create an issue with burning hot. The flavor is a very interesting . . . dirt . . . taste and of course the requisite nut and cocoa flavor found in cigars. It is a bold cigar, with lots of body, but it doesnt have a jolt or rush of power to the head like those crazy La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero Chisels. I think this cigar could be smoked at any time without regard to the amount of foodstuffs in your stomach. I think the biggest problem with the cigar is probably the flavor, its a $6 with not a whole lot of personality. Id rather pay a bit more for the aforementioned La Flor Chisel.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (4) No (4)
