Persian King Raja by Gran Habano

COVID-19 Cigar Walk, Day 172: 3.0-Mile Cigar
Today was the first time I’ve taken this Persian King Raja by Gran Habano our on a Cigar Walk!

After this morning’s 3.0-Mile Cigar Walk with this Persian King Raja (Toro) I know one thing for sure… I’m not smoking these often enough. With a well-behaved performance, the Persian King cigar “rocked” making a perfect companion for this trek.

I can’t wait to fire this up again

Ecuadorian Corojo, Gran Habano, Persian King, Raja04/12/2019


Today I enjoyed the Gran Habano Persian King Raja like I imagined it should be enjoyed as an integral part of my morning office routine of reading, note-taking, and writing often with a cigar hanging out of my mouth.

This cigar after having almost a couple of weeks of resting was pretty much spot on with my first experience, even the slight tingling on the lips at the start. This time it wasn’t as noticeable. The rest of the way was dreamy creamy goodness. I can’t wait to enjoy the rest of my box.

Ecuadorian Corojo, Gran Habano, Persian King, RajaFinally, I’ve been wanting to try the Gran Habano Persian King Rajah ever since I watched a review on “Should I Smoke This” on YouTube a few months back. You folks might consider subscribing to his channel to gain some interesting insights. Here another link to his Patreon Page.

I’m glad I got my hands on a few of these. My guess from what I saw and heard was that this would potentially be “That” everyday stick through thick and thin; I think this may be “It”!

My punch-cut Cold draw left me with a tingling feeling on my lips and tongue — confirmed later by Ralph Sumo … interesting. There were no other prominent cold draw flavors that I could detect. Let’s fire it up.

The rest of the way was a sweet creamy smooth cedar and earth experience. There was also a mild pepper spice on the retrohale that wasn’t too pronounced; just the correct amount of spice as far as I’m concerned.

Now halfway and I’m not getting many transitions, but remember this is only 8 days in my TupperDor, so I expect an evolved experience next time I light one of these beautiful Gran Habano Persian Kings.

Oh by-the-way, I just purchased a box.
