Review: Dunhill Signed Range

On Wednesday night my local B&M Barrister Cigars had an event for the Dunhill Signed Range Cigar. The event was run by CAO as they are handling the distribution of these cigars. At the event the local CAO rep who I know from when I used to manage a cigar store brought along a nice Dalmore Single Malt Cigar Malt to enjoy at the event while smoking the cigars. It was a great combination.

The event itself was a 2 for 1, so I picked up 2 Robusto Tubos and a Toro which works out as I prefer to smoke a cigar twice before giving it a review. I smoke the cigar once in a social setting, and a second time where I pay attention to the cigar in review mode. It gives me a better understanding of the cigar, and it allows me to make sure I have not found a 1 hit wonder. So I smoked my first Dunhill Signed Range at the event, and the 2nd one at the beach, as always…

The Skinny:

Cigar: Dunhill Signed Range
Origin: Nicaragua
Size: Robusto 4.5 x 52
Wrapper: Nicaragua
Binder: Cameroon
Filler: Dominican Republic & Nicaragua

Pre-Light: Upon inspection of this cigar you realize how well constructed it is. The lines of the cigar are flawless. The cigar itself has a few veins, and reddish brown in color with some dark lines which gives the cigar a brindle look. The scent of the wrapper was cedar, while at the foot is was cedar with faint spices, perhaps cinnamon. I cut the cigar with a hole punch and the draw was firm with woody and nutty tones on the draw.

The Smoke: Upon lighting this cigar the first thing I noticed was the scent of the smoke itself. It was very pleasing to the nose. It reminded me of a fireplace in the winter. This might of been the first cigar this year where the smoke caught my nose. As far as my palate the first third of the cigar had caramel and wood tones while the second third coffee was introduced. As the cigar finished I was left with coffee and cinnamon.

Overall: From first light this was a full bodied cigar. With notes of caramel, coffee, wood, and cinnamon this cigar is definitely not your fathers Dunhill. Dunhill has a winner of a cigar and is currently one of the best I’ve had this year.

    I reviewed this cigar a few weeks ago. It is a shame it hasn’t gotten more attention. For the price it is one of the best cigars out there right now.

    What a fucking joke this cigar is. Not only is the smoke boring and flavorless, but the price makes it a terrible value. I buy Dunhill Dominicans and those are fantastic. I actually prefer Nicaraguan cigars. The only positive thing to be said about this stick is the pleasant aroma it puts out. I bought these twice, thinking I must have missed something but was wrong. Don’t waste your money.

    This is a useful piece of content, I located your blog looking around yahoo for a related content and came to this. I couldnt come across to much different information and facts on this blog post, so it was great to locate this one. I likely will end up being back again to look at some other articles that you have another time.

    Yo! Bluto you might want to give the Dunhill Signed Range a third try. There’s definitely something your missing, unfortunately it may not have anything to do with the cigar. What are you pairing it with, maybe try something different. Some of my favorite cigars are grown in Nicaragua too, however I would never say I prefer Nicaraguan, Honduran, Dominican or any other particular country’s cigars. I’ve had dog’s from every tobacco leaf growing country. I’ll also say if you you don’t like the Dunhill m

    Yo! Bluto you might want to give the Dunhill Signed Range a third try. There’s definitely something your missing, unfortunately it may not have anything to do with the cigar. What are you pairing it with, maybe try something different. Several of my favorite cigars are grown in Nicaragua too, however I would never say I prefer Nicaraguan, Honduran, Dominican or any other particular country’s cigars. I’ve had dog’s from every tobacco leaf growing country. I’ll also say if you you don’t like the Dunhill Signed Range it’s not the fault of the reviewer or blender, it just proves that people have their own tastes.
