Cigar Review | Aging Room M21 Fortissimo

It’s Stog o’Clock, and this time, I smoke and review the Aging Room M21 Fortissimo. This limited cigar is a 5.75×47 perfecto expertly rolled with a pigtail cap and tapered foot. It features a Dominican Habano wrapper aged over seven years with a Domincan binder and Dominican fillers. The wrapper gives off a grassy, wet dog aroma. Just a slight aroma of tobacco comes out of the foot.

Pre-light, there is black pepper with no sign of spice on my tongue. Once torched, the cigar opens up with a spicy wood. There is some leather through the nose, and the finish gives me a creamy black pepper and slight spice.

After twenty minutes, the first third comes to a close. On the draw, I find woody leather with a very spicy mix of black and red pepper. The retro-hale offers a mossy wood with classic Dominican spice. On the finish, there is a buttery spice alongside some roasted almond and more wood. Body and strength are both very full, and this stick is already a spice bomb.

Forty minutes in, the second third finishes out. The draw blasts me with spicy leather and a continued mix of black and red pepper. Through the nose, there is more spice and rich earth. On the long finish, I get a spicy wood with the introduction of nutmeg and a metallic earth. There is no change in strength or body.

The final third finishes at one hour. On the draw, there are consistent flavors of wood, leather, and black pepper. A spicy toast makes an appearance on the retro-hale with more Dominican twang. The finish continues to be long with a bold black licorice and more nutmeg and metallic earth. Strength and body are still cranked up to the full mark.

Overall, I thought this was a pretty good cigar. It doesn’t present a flavor profile that I typically gravitate toward, but if you enjoy spicy sticks and bold Dominican tobacco, you will really like this cigar. I could tell the extra age on the wrapper helped refine the spice in the blend, and construction is top notch. With prices ranging from $12-14 dollars on this stick, it’s not the cheapest date on the block, but the limited supply of these is dwindling, so get them while you can!

Keep it smoky!

    Love the wet dog description. Noah, red and black pepper and Domincan twang is a good reason for me to pass, but the exact reason why others should try it. Good review my brother -leemack912 5
