Two quality cigars are up in today’s edition of reviews on Puff.com.  We’ll start off with the Sindicato Hex Churchill and will finish up with the Tatuaje NHC Seleccion Limitada Natural.

Sindicato Hex Churchill

Sindicato is a new cigar company that came onto the scene just this year.  Jim Colucci, ex VP of sales and marketing for tobacco giant Altadis USA is the head of the company, and he was joined by several cigar shop owners from across the US in this venture.  I guess the whole “Sindicato” makes sense once you look at the company’s structure, since it really is a cigar syndicate.  The company debuted three lines at the IPCPR show to kick off their business, and one of those is the Hex, which I’ll be reviewing today.  The Affinity and the Casa Bella are the other two, and I’ll probably give them a try in the future.  But for now, let’s take a closer look at what the Hex has to offer.

The Sindicato Hex Churchill measures 7 x 54.  It’s the largest offering in the line, which also consists of the 5 ¼ x 52 Figurado, 5 x 52 Robusto, 6 x 54 Toro, and the 6 ¼ x 52 Perfecto.  Rare, aged tobaccos are used to construct the Hex in Condega, Nicaragua.  The filler and binder are both Nicaraguan, while the wrapper is of the Select Dark Ecuadorian variety.  The strength of the Hex is listed as medium-bodied.

The most noticeable aspect of the Hex Churchill is its nice pigtail cap and its large size, of course.  The Hex Churchill feels heavy in my hands and is very firm to the touch.  The oily wrapper has a beautiful chocolate brown color that is enticing.  There’s a slight reddish tint.  Minimal veins are present and the texture is smooth.  The tasteful band adds a nice touch.  It features the Hex name over a black and white color scheme.  It’s rather simple, but still looks good.  There’s a coffee cold taste, while the aroma is chocolaty.

After lighting the Sindicato Hex with relative ease, I experience a bit of a tight draw.  It loosens up quickly enough though and becomes much better.  There’s a decent amount of smoke, and the light gray ash is very sturdy and stays on for more than an inch.  The burn only requires one touch-up and no re-lights.  Smoking time is approximately one hour and a half.
