Cigar Review: Bespoke Cigars Daughters of the Wind Calico
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 is decent, so I got started.
Brand: Bespoke Cigars
Line: Daughters of the Wind
Size: 6.14 x 54
Price: $20 – Luxury Cigar Club
Binder: Costa Rica
Filler: Dominican Republic, Peru
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.
