Mac always needs a little beat down. I mean he is sending 4 bombs a day out. A little of his own medicine would be good for him.

I find almost every Acid cigar I smoked so far, all two of em, have had the cold aroma of infusion, a sweet character
from the tip, but are otherwise completely normal in every way, and exceptional in that they are absolutely perfectly
constructed. I can hack on Acids as well as anybody, but it's almost like J.D. is going out of his way to make sure
that no one can ever accuse Acid of being an inferior cigar. I also notice that 1/3 or 1/2 way in, they go mostly
regular old cigar flavor, and again, in my limited experience, are fantastic smokes, well-blended.

I experienced that same thing with a couple other DEs but with the O3 I had a hint of infusion to the nub.
But the sweetness wasn't overpowering the cigar after the initial burst of flavor.

I couldn't agree more that the O3 from DE is the best infused smoke out there because it is not overpowering on the infused end. It really is a great quality smoke that will always have a place in my humi! Very well written review!

I got a fiver on the way from the 'devil site'. I actually won 4 auctions this week....sorry honey.

This is one of the Acid's that I haven't tried and I'm excited to finally be able to give one a go.

Can anyone compare the O3 to the "Acid One"?

So far, my best smoke ever was the Acid One, but I'm not sure I want to commit to a fiver till I work through their lineup and better narrow down what I like.

Thanks for the review. This one is my wife's favorite Acid, but I never did try one while she was still smoking. I might have to give it a go at some point. My biggest complaint with Acid and most infused is the sweetened cap. It always tinges the flavor of the cigar for me and gives me a Nutrasweet-like aftertaste. I wish they would leave it off of there and just let me taste the tobacco with the infused flavors.

A coworked gifted me one of these this week and asked me to try it.

Couldn't get past an inch. Just not my cup of tea.

I know JD makes quality cigars but the Acids just overpower me with sweetness. I guess I will stick to the occasional Liga Privada if I have a hankering for a DE cigar.

I enjoyed an Acid Roam once; I found the infusion subtle and pleasant in flavor, although the fragrance was a bit much for my smoking companion.

A few years ago I was around someone who was smoking a Kub Kuba, however...THAT was a room-clearer. Nasty.

I'll try this O3 if I find one and I'm in the mood. I've been wanting to try one of JD's Tabak coffee-infused cigars, but the price always puts me off.

The O3 was one of my first Drew Estates that I had, thanks to Ken aka SteelCityBoy, and we both agreed that it was a very tasty smoke! However now my pallet has changed entirely and I am into nothing but Maduros .
Great Review
