swagswag limitado 99 infamous


It comes as no surprise that SWAG did a great job with the Limitado 99’s presentation.  The band near the head is red, gold, black, and white and displays the SWAG name with Cigar Lifestyle beneath it.  Another band at the foot shares the same color scheme and says Puro Dominicano.  There’s a white wrapping around the middle that features the Limitado 99 name that adds a nice touch.  The cigar itself has a chocolate brown wrapper with some oil on the surface.  The texture of the wrapper is smooth and features some medium-sized veins.  I feel no soft spots.  Prior to lighting I detect a scent of pepper, while the cold-taste is earthy.

Once in action, the Infamous burns like a charm.  The draw is good and the cigar produces plenty of thick smoke.  Only a couple of minor touch-ups are needed.  Re-lights are not necessary.  The white ash is firm and hangs for over an inch.  Smoking time is right around 75 minutes total.

The SWAG Limitado 99 has passed the test in all departments so far, and it continues to do so with its flavor.  The first third kicks off with some earth that blends with pepper and leather.  The pepper and earth continue into the second third.  I also notice leather and a sweet, almost fruity flavor at this point.  The final third is a mix of that fruity flavor and wood.  Strength is medium to full-bodied, just as advertised.

I liked everything about the SWAG Limitado 99 Infamous.  The marketing is catchy, but it also has plenty of substance to match that flash.  If you love Dominican puros or just want a cigar with great flavor and complexity, give the Infamous a shot.  A single sells in the $8 to $9 range, and you can also find it in packs of five or boxes of 20.  Snag a SWAG up now before this limited edition runs out.

The SWAG Limitado 99 Infamous earns a rating of 3.75 out of four stars.
