In terms of the cigar’s flavor, some may find the Cohiba Puro Dominicana to not be multi-dimensional enough. Personally, I believe it has just enough balance and consistency to keep things interesting throughout the duration of the smoke, but I would not call it overly complex. It begins with a strong dose of spicy pepper that combines with earth in the first third. The second third keeps that spiciness but also introduces wood into the equation. The final third is all pepper and coffee. Needless to say, this is a full-bodied cigar to the T that packs a punch.

The Cohiba Puro Dominicana is a solid smoke, but I really have to question if it is worth its expensive price tag. At around $14 per single, it is far from cheap, and there are plenty of other cigars out there that can give you the same if not a better overall smoking experience. Splurge on one if you can find it on sale. It also comes in packs of five or boxes of 25. Beginners should stay away, as it is quite strong, and you should remember to smoke the Puro Dominicana on a full stomach.

The Cohiba Puro Dominicana Toro earns a rating of 3.25 out of four stars.

Montecristo White #2


The Montecristo White is a cigar that seems to have a positive following. While pricey in nature, many reviews describe the White as a cigar that is perfect for special occasions. I didn’t have any special occasion to celebrate while sampling the Montecristo White #2, but that did not stop me from lighting it up to see what it had to offer. Now let’s get on to the details…

The Montecristo White #2 measures 6 1/8 x 52. Other sizes in the line include the 3 5 /8 x 24 Montes, 5 x 52 Robusto Grande, 5 x 52 Rothchilde, 5 ½ x 44 Court, 5 ½ x 44 Especial No. 3, 6 x 54 Toro, 6 5/8 x 44 Especial #1, and the 7 x 54 Churchill. The cigar has a filler blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos. The binder is Nicaraguan, and an Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper tops it all off. As is usually the case with Connecticut cigars, this one is listed as being medium-bodied in strength.
