All three of the cigars that this team reviewed had near perfect construction and appearance. We literally found ourselves nit picking this beauty for flaws. Two of the three sticks we enjoyed had a little shag at the foot as they weren’t perfectly trimmed before packaging. One cigar had some very slight cracking near the foot from freight/handling but otherwise, these cigars are dressed to impress in that sexy sumatra wrapper with an oily, bold box press finish. — 5.5 Score
Perhaps the only area where this cigar suffered, two of the three cigars we reviewed went out at the halfway point. The F55 burned evenly and produced a beautiful, creamy volume of smoke that filled the air with wonderful sweet aroma’s imported straight from the Dominican Republic. This certainly impressed the staff here as we weren’t entirely sure how this box press would draw. – 5.0 Score
The Aging Room F55 was perhaps the most deliciously balanced Dominican that the Big Six team has enjoyed to date. Filling both the palate and the air with sweet candied notes of perfectly aged Dominican fillers, this cigar was an absolute treat to enjoy. The Sumatran wrapper, not to be outdone or left behind, charged ahead with subtle spice that both stood up to and balanced the filler. It left us satisfied and eager to burn another. — 5.0 Score
If the truth must be stated, two of the three Big Six Staff that review the cigars for our podcast and site enjoy Nicaraguan cigars over any other region. This cigar absolutely fooled us once this beauty was torched. Biting at the tongue with lite spice and a rush of nicotine, we were convinced that this was an Esteli, Nicaragua production. What a surprise to learn that this stick is a Dominican powerhouse. The cigar took a fantastic turn to sweeter notes with slight hints of coffee as the cigar entered passed the first third. The F55 Quattro flavors and burn stayed consistent through the finish with the only disappointment being that two of three sticks we reviewed needed re-lit at the halfway point. That being said, this Dominican currently takes it’s place at the head of the table for Dominican productions. Who will unseat this aged wonder? Stay tuned.
