Cigar Review: MBombay Classic Belicoso

Initial Thoughts:

MBombay Cigars is a brand with which I'm not too familiar. But, they're somewhat active on social media, so I've seen them around. And it's MBombay Cigars that makes the MBombay Classic Belicoso.

This short, thick cigar has a lighter Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. The draw starts off really nice and the even burn will quickly require you to remove the excessively long, top label. However, there is a fairly thick vein that runs from the smoking end down through the label, so I'm cautious to see how the MBombay Classic Belicoso ends up.

Final Thoughts:

After smoking the cigar, I have to admit, the MBombay Classic Belicoso is not my cup of tea. The aroma of the smoke was good, but the actual flavors were just mediocre. They started okay, but declined through to the final third.

And again, the flavors of the MBombay Classic Belicoso aren't bad, they're just not for me especially when compared to the RoMa Craft Intemperance EC XVII I reviewed here, which is of a similar blend, similar vitola, and similar price point.

Because I wasn't terribly impressed with this cigar and would prefer to smoke something else, the MBombay Classic Belicoso earns a CigarScore 2.
