La Barba Ricochet Crü Mexi-Sol  by La Barba Cigars / Caldwell Cigars

05/22/2021
COVID-19 Day 426:
 Cru Mexi-Sol, Dominican Republic, La Barba, Mexican Sun Grown, Ricochet, Tony Bellatto Today was Day-4 of my La Barba Cigar Adventure with this beefier “Sun Grown” version of the La Barba cigar line in this La Barba Ricochet Crü Mexi-So by La Barba Cigars / Caldwell Cigars. From my notes, this was another La Barba cigar with a very open draw… but flavorful…

As it turned out, the draw on this specimen of this Ricochet Crü Mexi-Sol delivered Creamy Leather, Dusty Earthy, and Oak tobacco flavors.

So far I’m happy with this cigar, but yesterday’s La Barba Ricochet (Orange Cigar Band) is turning out to be my favorite of the La Barba Line… except for of course the hard-to-find and rare La Barba’s One & Only cigar.

If I were offered one of these, I would smoke it again.

Stay Smoky
Stay Chill

Cru Mexi-Sol, Dominican Republic, La Barba, Mexican Sun Grown, Ricochet, Tony Bellatto It was my first time with this cigar today and I enjoyed it…

Through an open draw, this handsome cigar in the La Barba Ricochet Crü Mexi-Sol was a pleasure to smoke with initial dark rich tobacco flavors with an earthy minerally finish.

I have another resting that I can’t wait to Blaze again… Stay tuned

Stay Smoky
