Cigar Review: La Galera 1936 Box Pressed

Initial Thoughts:

This is only my 2nd La Galera cigar ever. I think my first was last year in Cincinnati, and I remember thinking it was pretty good.

The La Galera 1936 Box Pressed had a semi-dry wrapper with a milk chocolate color. The first few puffs had an easy draw – so easy that I think this cigar might be under-filled. However, the cigar feels firm, so I don't know. After smoking 1/2 inch, the ash fell off – more evidence of a cigar that's underfilled.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I found the La Galera 1936 Box Pressed underwhelming. The flavors were leafy and I felt like the cigar was dry. Each puff provided plenty of smoke, which is good, but the cigar wasn't really memorable.

Because the La Galera 1936 Box Pressed was unimpressive, I give it a CigarScore 2.
