Cigar Review | 1502 Blue Sapphire

It’s Stog o’Clock, and this time, I check out the new 1502 Blue Sapphire. This 6×52 Toro Gordo is a Nicaraguan puro meaning the wrapper, binder, and fillers are all Nicaraguan tobaccos. It retails for $13 and is surprisingly not box-pressed.

On the cold draw, I pick up fruity raisin. The wrapper produces a rich, woody chocolate aroma, while I smell raisin out of the foot. Once lit, I find leather and dark cocoa on the draw. Through the nose, the leather carries through with some cedar. On the finish, there is black pepper, cocoa, and a hint of molasses.

Thirty minutes in, the first third comes to a close. On the draw, I pick up light cocoa and buttery coffee. Through the nose, there is a pleasant mix of nougat and grass. The finish gives me smoky cedar with hay and light black pepper. Strength and body come in at the medium mark.

The second third gets me to one hour. There is more cocoa on the draw with smoky earth. On the retro-hale, sweet cinnamon compliments leather. The finish introduces me to black licorice with oily leather and black pepper. Strength and body remain consistent at the medium mark.

One hour and forty minutes, the final third dissipates. On the draw, there is rich earth and cocoa with a nice sweet toast. Through the nose, nutty earth blends with black pepper. The finish gives me more black pepper with buttery cocoa. Strength and body jump slightly to the medium-to-full mark.

The 1502 Blue Sapphire is another win for 1502. It offers a nice array of flavors with moderate depth. Construction is perfect, and the smoke is very smooth. It’s not my favorite 1502 blend, but it’s a good smoke with an enjoyable flavor profile many people would enjoy. I definitely recommend giving it a try.

Smoke on!
