My first thought of the Byron Petit Poemas was,
Holy crap, this cigar is tiny and it costs $20?!
Cigar smokers are honest folk who like holding onto their hard-earned money, so when United Cigars wants to sell me a stick of tobacco for twenty-bucks, I think it should be good.
That said, the Byron Petit Poemas is a beautiful little cigar. The wrapper is a medium brown color marbled with flecks of darker brown, and it's quite pleasant to look at. Putting the torch to it, the cigar lit easily, though it did start off with a tight-ish draw.
Brand: Selected Tobacco
Line: Byron, Petit Poemas
Size: 4 x 50
Price: $20 – Luxury Cigar Club
Smoke Time: 71 minutes
Yes, the Byron Petit Poemas is a tiny cigar. Yes, the Byron Petit Poemas is expensive. And, yes, the Byron Petit Poemas only lasted just over an hour. But, is it worth the $20 price point?
The burn was pretty dang good. The flavors were very nice and the cigar smoked and felt very premium. However, the draw was tighter than I would have liked, despite having chopped the end off perfectly with my guillotine cutter.
In the end, the Byron Petit Poemas is a good cigar worth enjoying at least once. Because it's so expensive (yet quite luxurious), the Petit Poemas earns a CigarScore 4.
