  • Looking for sweet cigars...

     03-02-2011, 3:11 PM

    I'm looking for cigars that have a natural sweetness NOT SWEETENED CAPS, NOT INFUSED.
    I've tasted it a few times in a few brands but nothing I could track.
    I've tried cigars with the same wrapper and gotten totally different results.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I think the Ruination and the A. Fernandez both have a lot of sweetness to them. What are the ones that had the sweetness you couldn't track?
    Favorites are in my bio

    The A. Fernandez Sumatra, the Ccom Cuban Label (had the most so far), The Kristoff Criollo, and I know there was another one but I for the life of me can't remember it.

    The only cigar that has really made me remember a very distinct sweet nutty flavor was the Monte #2 a few years back, unfortunately I have only had one so I don't know if it was just that particular cigar or not. I have had other cigars (mainly maduros) that have sweetness but nothing like that monte.

    The Torano Exodus Gold has some sweetnes to it, although that might be more of a cocoa flavor than pure sweetness. I always thought the old RP Fusion had a slightly sweet flavor. I'd also consider the Montesino maduro somewhat sweet too.

    really though. LFD DL Maduro chisel is sweet. Litto Gome Diez Natural Chisel is great as well. Of course, don't forget Anejo

    I find the Gurkha Empire Series VI has that natural sweetness. I have noticed that the Brazilian Arapiraca wrapper seems to have great sweetness, I have been smoking a lot of different ones lately.

    funny there are so many differences here! I always felt the Tat reds had a bit too much sweetness for my tastes.

    Cameroon wrappers have a natural sweetness to them. Torano 1916 comes to mind.

    Not sure, but IIRC, the AF 8-5-8 has a sweetness to it

    I want to be candid with you, for candor is a compliment, it speaks of trust and assumes good faith.

    Yep, good call. Although most cameroons (1916's included) have that sweet-pepper flavor, to me anyway. Not sure if that's along the line of what you're looking for S.H.

    I had a Gran Habano Azteca on my way home... tons of sweetness.

    Ashton Aged Maduro...very sweet cigar and picked up some chocolate notes too. Medium bodied. One more suggestion would be the Ccom Brazilian label.

    +2 on the Ashton Aged Maduro.

    I also have to put a plug in for Onyx Reserve, which is probably one of the sweetest natural-sweet cigars I've ever had. For a different kind of sweet you can try the CAO La Traviata as well. It has a very different, somewhat meaty, tangy type sweetness to it that is really good IMO. Eat something first, it's one of those cigars you can really feel in your gut. One of my favorites.
