Default Flavours you don't like in a cigar?

I smoked an AF Hemingway something or other (it was part of a massive sampler buy) on Friday. Great burn, lots of smoke, full bodied, spicy and leathery.. leathery.. hrmm..

I'm still a noob and discovering the flavours I enjoy in cigars, but I think I can put leather on the do-not-like list. The entire time I was smoking, I kept having visions of chewing on a 80's biker jacket. Though there were other flavours, leather was predominant, and spoiled the rest of the cigar flavours for me.

So what about you guys? What flavours don't you like?

Olives....have smoked a couple vintage cigars in Puff-Puff-Passes that had a strong flavor of olives, which I don't care for. I would actually skip those cigars when they came around to me in the P-P-P.

Not having tasted it in particular, yet having heard it described many times...


Ass.






And on a more serious note, astringent or metallic tastes turn me off right away. I am not a fan of the whole "chewing on tinfoil" kind of thing.

I'm sorry but the way you summed that up left me in tears!

Not everyone enjoys everything and that's quite alright, I myself do not like Candella or lacking a better word for it and "Olde Worlde" Flavor.

Tobacco.
I kid I kid.
I don't like it when I get a cigar that taste like smoking an ashtray.
My last Oliva V Torpedo was like that. Left me wondering why people put such high praise to it.

Disgusting.

Haven't tried them again - been over a year or so now so.

I do not like overly vegetal or grassy tasting cigars. Cigar should have complexity and balanced flavors. Cigars should be well cured and manufactured.

Now grassy is something I enjoy! I smoked a Monte #4 not to long ago, and it was the "burning straw hat" undertone that I loved!

Ditto.

Spicy to me tastes harsh and cheap.

I agree completely. Although still a n00b, maybe my tastes will change. I love the chocolatey, coffee, etc tastes. When a cigar is too peppery it takes away from the experience for me.

Default Re: Flavours you don't like in a cigar?

Cigars infused with sweet flavors. I'm not talking about the natural sweetness of a maduro wrapper or the sweet coffee or mocha undertones. I'm talking about artificially infusing/flavoring a cigar to make it taste like a particular fruit, libation, candy etc. Such as CAO Flavors, Acid and the list could go on. It's not that I haven't given them a fair shake, I've tried many. I just don't dig them. I also dislike bitter and salty "flavours" (in cigars).

I would describe "straw hat" and "grassy" as being different. Have you smoked a Vegueros? Now that has the grassy flavor I do not enjoy. Grassy should taste like... grass/lawn. The Vegueros is just like a fresh cut lawn. I like the smell of fresh cut lawns, but do not like the taste.

Incense, perfume, cologne, grape, pineapple, watermelon, kuba kuba... er... not to name specifics.

In a real cigar, I tasted buttered broccoli once. I didn't hate it, but I didn't exactly like it.

I dont like metallic tastes. Dead fish(Cremosa) and rotting grass(Angry Elf) are also low on my pleasure meter.
