Calibre 58 Review

Calibre 58 - Nestor Miranda. 4 X 58. Wrapper - Nicaraguan Rosado, Binder -Nicaragua, Filler - Nicaragua. Medium - Full bodied.

Initial taste - Strong wood and spice.

First third of the cigar reveals flavors of spice, cedar and leather in order of dominance. Very enjoyable.

At the halfway point, some changes in the flavor profile began to take place. The spice was still in the forefront, but the leather really began to pick up but it also took on a tangy almost citrus aspect to it. There was also an emergence of a sweet caramel flavor that I often get with Rosado wrapped cigars. The cedar was now more of an underlying flavor at this point.

The last third of this cigar had an orange peel, tangy leathery taste along with spice and the sweet caramel which is a combination that I really enjoy. Cedar was still in the background. Long finish of sweet leather and spice.

Construction, burn and draw were perfect. Nice light-gray ash with a razor sharp burn.

Calibre 58 is available in both Robusto and Torpedo vitolas (4 X 58), and in two wrappers - Rosado and Oscuro. I was very impressed with this cigar's flavor profile and complexity and with an MSRP of $4.60, It is an excellent value in my opinion. I would definitely have this cigar in my daily rotation. Highly recommended.
