Christmas is coming up soon and what better way to spread the holiday cheer than with a fine Honduran cigar? How about this one, the Romeo Y Julieta House of Capulet Toro?
This cigar is a very tasty cigar for my not-so-professional cigar taste, not too strong. Medium strength is good for me. The flavor stays consistent, even toward the end of the cigar’s life where some can get a bit nasty. This size will last me several holes to perhaps 1/3 of a round on the golf course, or about 40-60 minutes on the front porch. Even the lovely bride, who is a newb to cigars, enjoys this one despite the strength being a little bit higher than she would prefer.
The numbers for me don’t lie. My golf scores when enjoying a fine cigar are a good 40% better. I’m not kidding. Perhaps it is that the cigar helps me relax, or perhaps keeps my mind eating itself with bad memories of the last 3-putt. Out of courtesy I always give my opponents an opportunity to surrender as I light up my next cigar.
This is getting tough. Once I started posting some cigar reviews, cigar submissions and requests for reviews have increased. I’m up to the task. Look for HookedOnCigarBlog.com coming soon perhaps!
Today’s golf cigar review is the Perdomo 20th SG Epicure, courtesy of the Famous Smoke Shop. I’ve enjoyed the Perdomo 20th SG Epicure on the course and during “cigar holes” I’m actually even par! I’ll do anything to play good golf (barring practice of course). The lampshade thing didn’t work but if all it takes is puffing on a Perdomo, I’m in.
Perdomo 20th SG Epicure Overview
The 20th SG Epicure is a full flavored smoke, not for beginners in my opinion. Give it a good 40-60 minutes to enjoy as at that strength enjoying too fast could be a little bit of an issue. I’ll start this one up around the 6th hole, and it carries to the first hole or so on the back nine. I enjoyed the flavor, right down to the end. Some cigars get a little nasty at the end, but not this one.
