Default White owl pineapple

My buddy Volt set me up with some flavored cigars to review them on my blog and this White Owl Pineapple is one of those nasty smelling cigars. Fortunately it isnít a big cigar with the 4.75 inch length and 40 ring gauge. The nasty smell is released as soon as I remove the cellophane wrapper.



You donít need to cut this cigar as it has a nice little hole in the mouthpiece. The construction is off as the cigar doesnít feel as consistently firm everywhere.



The flavor is a chemical sweetness, when I try real hard I can notice that they tried to make the cigar taste like pineapple and tobacco but the sweetness is overwhelming. It is not as bad as the Phillies peach though until I reach a very bitter part of the cigar which makes me cough a lot. The cigar stays bitter with some sweetness on my lips





Would I buy this cigar again? Hell no!

Construction: 12 / 20
Draw: 14 / 20
Appearance: 10 / 20
Smoke & ash: 6 / 10
Burn: 14 / 20
Aroma (first part) 3 / 10
Aroma (middle part) 3 / 10
Aroma (last part) 3 / 10

You and Simon are tough peeps. Although they were really sent for Tim, your smoking them has impressed me. They aren't relly fit for man or beast.

I vote that one... if you smoke them back to back they will mix in flavors... but then you can go vomit and get it out of your system!

Default Re: White owl pineapple

So.... which flavors haven't you tried???
* Sweet
* Grape
* Strawberry
* Peach
* Watermelon
* Pineapple
* Vanilla
* Blackberry
* White Grape
* Wild Apple






Just a simple question.. you know? might be good information to know which one you haven't reviewed.....
There are all the assorted flavors in the Phillies line too.
banana, berry, chocolate aroma, coconut, coffee, cognac, greene de menthe, honey, mango, peach, pina colada, sambuca, sour apple, strawberry, sweet vanilla, sugar, tequila, watermelon, grape, and cinnamon.

A few of those sound like they might truly strike your palate with an axe.

You smoked this cigar wrong. You are supposed to cut it down the middle, take all the filler out, replace it w/ a special green leaf, roll the wrapper back up, lick it down, and then smoke it.
