What a great looking stick.. are the thoughts that came to my head when i first saw this cigar. These were introduced at the IPCPR just a few days ago. “I wanted to bring into the market the best cigar for less than $5.00 retail” says owner Yaniv Levy.
“The cigar is made with a blend of 100% long filler Dominican tobacco. Fifty percent of that filler is comprised of Ligero leaf, surrounded by a Corojo wrapper. The cigar is medium in strength but full flavored. The Dominican blend with an Ecuadorian Corojo wrapper is just an excellent combination. We named the cigar after our new corporate office and warehouse address, 231 Rock Hill Rd. in Bala Cynwyd, PA. The box is gorgeous, the cigar is fantastic and the price is unbelievable.” said Yaniv Levy.
So if the write up sounded good, I knew it must have been at least smoke able. I lit the cigar up and was immediately hit with a bit of spice and hay. The smoke was excellent and the draw was pretty darn near perfect. The burn was pretty even all of the way through as well. The flavor stayed pretty consistent. Even rolling it around in the hand it felt very sturdy and packed well. These are a great budget stick for at or under $5.00/stick. I would definitely buy these again and maybe even spring for a box.
