saint luis rey serie g rothchilde

When looking at the Saint Luis Rey Serie G Rothchilde, the first thing I notice is its two decorative bands. They are both mostly red and gold in color, and really catch my attention. The top band features the Saint Luis Rey logo and name, while the band beneath it features the Serie G moniker. The cigar itself has a medium-brown wrapper with some oil on the surface. Touching the cigar, I notice that it is firm and has no real give. Construction seems to be solid overall. Before lighting, I get a scent of earth. The cold taste, on the other hand, is of mild spice.

The burn of the Saint Luis Rey Serie G Rothchilde is as good as I could have ever expected. The draw is just right. There’s plenty of smoke that fills the air. The light grey ash is solid in nature. Absolutely no touch-ups or re-lights are needed, which allows me to focus on the cigar’s flavors, and there’s plenty of that to go around.

To sum up the Saint Luis Rey Serie G in terms of its flavor, I would simply call it complex. From beginning to end, there’s never a dull moment. The Rothchilde kicks off with a nice combo of earth and sweetness in the first third. The second third continues with these two flavors, but a decent kick of spice also comes into play. The cigar also exhibits some creaminess later on that is enjoyable. The final third remains creamy, but also offers chocolate and nuts, making it my favorite part of this tasty cigar. As for strength, I’d label it as medium to full-bodied.

What can I say? The Saint Luis Rey Serie G Rothchilde was a winner in my book. Solid presentation, solid burn, and fantastic flavors really had me enjoy this smoking experience. I would recommend the Serie G to experienced smokers looking for something full of flavor in the medium to full-bodied strength range. A single sells for around $6 to $7 each, but I would go ahead and pick up a pack of five or box of 25 to keep around the house.

The Saint Luis Rey Serie G Rothchilde earns a rating of four out of four stars.
