Cigar Review | The Cuban Seed Cigar Co. P26 Regalo

It’s Stog o’Clock, and this time, I check out an offering from The Cuban Seed Cigar Co. The P26 Regalo is a very stout, box-pressed stick. The company’s website offers no size or blend information, but I would guess this is somewhere close to 6×60. It looks to be rolled well with a triple cap and very smooth seams. The company claims this cigar is close to the Padron 1926 Serie – a bold claim.

The wrapper itself gives off a leather and oak aroma. Out of the foot, I smell spicy dried fruit. Once lit, I pick up salty leather, black pepper, and bitter coffee on the draw. Through the nose, there is only a slight cedar and white pepper. On the finish, I pick up leather and bitter cocoa.

After twenty-five minutes, the first third closes out. On the draw, I pick up some leather mixed with black pepper. The retro-hale is very simple with only a slight cedar note. On the finish, I find smoky cedar with a distinct charred hickory flavor. Strength and body settle in at the medium mark.

One hour in, the second third ends. I find more leather on the draw with the addition of some salty earth. Through the nose, I pick up more cedar with a very tasty sweet vanilla. The finish gives me cinnamon and black pepper spice. There is no change to strength or body.

The final third comes to a close at an hour and a half. On the draw, I pick up more leather with a nice wheat note and earth that is now vegetal. There is no change to the retro-hale. On the finish, I find black pepper spice with the return of smoky cocoa. Strength and body finish out at the medium mark.

The P26 Regalo is a well-constructed cigar with some good flavors. It doesn’t offer a whole lot of complexity, but it’s consistent. As far as being comparable to the Padron 1926 Serie, there’s not much truth to that other than a flavor or two that both cigars share. Being that this stick is $22 per single, it’s tough to recommend it over others in the same price range. If money is not a problem, it’s worth a try.

Thanks to Laith from The Cuban Seed Cigar Co. for sending this one to me for review. I really appreciate it!

Smoke on!
