J. Fuego 777 - I'd like to thank Ben at nicetightash.com/ for this cigar. I won it as part of a St. Patty's Day contest. Never having smoked a J. Fuego, I sparked this bad boy the moment I got my hands on it..com I've heard some good things about J. Fuego's product, but no local shops carry the cigars. All I knew is that if given a chance to smoke a Fuego, I'd be reaching for the 777.
The reason.....I knew this cigar is wrapped with a Brazilian Corojo leaf; grown by Fuego's father specifically for this cigar. The binder and filler are Nicaraguan, with the filler consisting of 65% Corojo and 35% Criollo. I'm a huge fan of Brazilian wrapped cigars. I find them to have sweet and distinctive flavors. But this is the first Brazilian corojo wrapper I've ever had the chance to smoke.
This cigar had an intense but smooth flavor profile. I wouldn't say that it was a very complex smoke, but it was delicious. Delicious and sweet. I really enjoy sweet smokes with a medium to full body, and the 777 delivers.
