Cigar Review: Sinistro Mr. White Belicoso

Initial Thoughts:

I went into the Sinistro Mr. White completely blind. I knew nothing about this cigar or the Sinistro brand, so this is a totally raw cigar review.

After cutting the pyramid tip, I got a decent cold draw, but once I lit the cigar, things tightened up a little bit. I had to cut more off to get going. The wrapper is a light brown with a few noticeable veins running down the side. The burn on the Sinistro Mr. White started very even, and I think I'm going to like it.

Final Thoughts:

The Sinistro Mr. White Belicoso burned pretty consistently throughout the entire smoke. Apart from some minor issue where a sliver of the wrapper leaf didn't burn right, everything was smooth sailing.

Regarding the draw, my initial cut wasn't enough, so I did have to cut it again, but that's nothing to complain about. The flavors during the first two-thirds of the Sinistro Mr. White were smooth and creamy. However, as I started in on the final third, those delicious flavors disappeared and were replaced by tastes that were bitter and harsh.

While the cigar seemed well made, I didn't love how the flavors didn't stay consistently good. And, because I didn't just love the Sinistro Mr. White, I have to give it a CigarScore of 3.
