Cigar Review: Bespoke Cigars Daughters of the Wind Calico

Initial Thoughts:

One of the coolest parts about being part of a cigar subscription club such as Luxury or Good Cigar Co is that you get to try new cigars from a variety of companies. And today, I'm smoking a delicious-looking stick from a boutique cigar maker named Bespoke Cigars. And this is the Daughters of the Wind.

The cigar is wrapped in a dark leaf from Ecuador. After snipping the torpedo tip, the draw was decent, so I got started.

Final Thoughts:

Despite having some slightly conflicting information about this cigar, and not knowing exactly what kind of tobacco was in it, the Bespoke Cigars Daughters of the Wind Calico was a very well made stick.

Wherever it was from, the wrapper leaf was absolutely beautiful. The draw was almost alright, but it did seem to open up just a little in the final third – which, to me, was a good thing. The burn was even though most of the cigar, though I might've hit it with a quick blast from my torch.

But, for $20, I'm not sure I love this cigar. I wouldn't mind trying it again, but at this price point, I'm very conflicted as to how the Bespoke Cigars Daughters of the Wind would stack up against a Plasencia Alma Fuerte Generacion V, or other cigars in the $15-$20 price range.

There are some flavors in this Daughters of the Wind cigar that I just didn't love, and those are affecting the Score. Those flavors, plus a $20 price tag, earn this cigar a CigarScore 3.
