From The Victor Sinclair Website:

Master Blender Jose Dominguez has done it again, with our Triple Corojo wrapper, binder, filler cigar. Rich, hearty flavors and a touch of spice makes this cigar not only flavorful, but a Smooth, satisfying smoke.

Pre-Smoke: The first thing I noticed about this stick is how much the cigar label with the VS logo and the purple/gold bands at the foot look like they came out of Victoria’s Secret instead of the my humidor. The cigar itself had a beautiful rosado brown toothy wrapper. It was slightly spongy to the touch with one soft spot near the foot. The wrapper revealed notes of oak, while the foot had similar notes of oak, the dominant scent was that of figs. I used a V-cut on the cigar since my hippotech idiot proof cutter seems to be missing in action. The pre-light draw offered strong notes of figs.

Smoke: I lit this cigar with great anticipation as I have only had notes of figs on a cigar once in the past. That cigar was a fluke and I never was able to find the notes til now. You would think that a triple corojo cigar would be strong, but that was not the case here. While it was a medium to full bodied cigar it was a very flavorful cigar that had notes of oak, figs, and spices throughout the smoke. The finish has a subtle sweetness to it that was enjoyed well after the smoke was finished.

Overall: It has been years since I have a Victor Sinclair and as I smoked this I wondered why I had stayed so far away. The smoke was one of the best I had this year and I am now in the process of trying to obtain more for my humidor.
