Cigar Review: Sin Compromiso Seleccion No. 7 Parejo

Initial Thoughts:

When visiting 2 Guys Smoke Shop in Salem, New Hampshire, I asked one of the sales reps what their favorite cigar was. He immediately took me to the Sin Compromiso Seleccion No. 7.

At first glance, the Seleccion No. 7 is a big cigar. It's 7 inches long with a 56 ring gauge. The wrapper has a dark, leather color to it with a few visible veins. The punch creates a smooth but slightly constrained draw, but I'm still able to get plenty of smoke through it. Flavor-wise, I can taste the Nicaraguan tobacco; it's smooth and without spice, and the Mexican San Andreas filler adds nice complexity to the cigar.

Final Thoughts:

The Sin Compromiso Seleccion No. 7 is a pretty well-made cigar. The burn was even and the draw met expectations, considering this cigar is almost $19.

However, the cigar's flavors didn't live up to the hype. Also, in the final third of the cigar, I started noticing bitter flavors that shouldn't have shown up. While the construction of the cigar was good, the other aspects of the Sin Compromiso Seleccion No. 7 weren't anything to get too excited about.

And, given that this cigar doesn't taste as good as cigars with similar combinations of tobacco but which cost 30-40% less, I have to give this stick a CigarScore of 2.
