felipblack1 We are making today a Felipe Gregorio day here on, as we have two of the brand’s offerings to review. Up first is the bold Felipe Gregorio Black Pedro Diabolito, which will be followed by the Felipe Gregorio Dominicana.

Felipe Gregorio Black Pedro Diabolito


Felipe Gregorio is a brand that has created some highly rated cigars in the past, so I am not too worried about my venture today into smoking a pair of its selections. The Black Pedro line is one that is said to be complex and powerful at the same time. I kept that description in mind before lighting up the Black Pedro and had a nice full meal to handle any strong buzz that might result.

For this review, I am smoking a sample of the Black Pedro line’s Diabolito selection. It’s basically a Robusto that measures 5 x 50. There are three other sizes in the line as well, including the 6 x 54 Gitano, 6 ¼ x 52 Moro Torpedo, and 7 x 47 Andaluz. The Black Pedro is a pure Maduro line made completely of Maduro tobacco. The filler is a blend of Corojo Dominican and Nicaraguan Habana 92 tobaccos. The binder is dark Nicaraguan Habano. Last, but not least, is the Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. This is a strong cigar that is considered to be full-bodied.

I can say without fear of equivocation that the Black Pedro Diabolito does live up to its name. The wrapper is very dark and has some nice oils that are visible under direct light. The silver and black band blends in perfectly with the dark wrapper to give the cigar a very bold and intimidating look. The band has Black Pedro and Vintage Maduro stamped on its front. The cigar has a few veins here and there and appears to have solid construction. It feels firm to the touch and has a good weight in the palm of my hand. When I take a closer look and let my senses experience the Black Pedro, it gives off a pre-light aroma and cold taste of coffee.

After lighting the Black Pedro Diabolito with ease, the cigar burns with no major issues to report. I give Felipe Gregorio an A-plus in this department. The burn is slow and filled with plenty of smoke. The draw is easy and pleasant. The solid gray ash looks good against the dark, menacing wrapper. Zero touch-ups or re-lights are needed. I truly love maintenance-free stogies, and this is one of them.
