It took us a while, but we have finally smoked all four of the Oscar Leaf offerings, concluding with the Sumatra. I grabbed this bad boy at Hollywood Smokes in Tinley Park, IL and here are my thoughts:
1) Every single Leaf cigar that I have smoked has had great construction, you could feel the quality and the Sumatra was no different. Great burn and easy draw made this an enjoyable and easy smoke.
2) I would call the Sumatra a solid medium body cigar so I’m calling it a Demi.
3) I picked up some pepper and earthy tastes in addition to faint hints of citrus.
4) My smoke time was one hour and twenty minutes
Now to the two questions:
Would I smoke it again? Yes
Would I give it humidor space? No
Here’s how the Leaf stacks up in my opinion based on my personal preferences:
1 – Maduro – This would be a humidor staple if it was easier to find and easily my favorite of the bunch
2 – Connecticut – I don’t smoke many Connecticuts, but if I’m going to have one around, this and the My Father CT have been my favorites.
3 – Sumatra – Enjoyable, but not humidor space worthy for me
4 – Corojo – Enjoyable smoke as well, but not humidor space worthy either
The nicest thing about the Leaf cigars is that between them, they offer something for almost all taste preferences. These are by no means value cigars, but the quality is evident and I don’t think the price tag should be a deterrent. If you get the chance to smoke one of these cigars, do yourself a favor and give them a shot. Regardless of taste preference, they really are enjoyable cigars.
