Welcome to another Member sponsored Geek Critique generously sponsored by our member ntanner (Neal).  The cigar provided for this round is the Diesel Fool's Errand Stubborn Fool Perfecto.

The Fool's Errand Stubborn Fool may appear to be fun and games, but this full-bodied joker ain't nothing to laugh about! This limited-edition, medium-full bodied perfecto is the first installment of the Fool's Errand, which is a collaboration between Justin Andrews of Scandinavian Tobacco Group and master cigar crafter AJ Fernandez. The cigars are handmade at the Tabacalera AJ Fernandez Cigars factory in Nicaragua. It offers excellent construction and comes only in the perfecto size which has nipple at the foot. On the inside, this cigar has a combination of Honduran and Nicaraguan fillers, bound with Honduran leaf and then finished off in a dark oily Connecticut broadleaf wrapper, this premium handmade is ready to entertain your taste buds.

This cigar was enjoyed with Black Coffee

Pre-Light: 9 Points of 10 Possible

This 5x58 Perfecto cigar was the perfect size for my taste. The two bands on the cigar added to its aesthetics, and I couldn't help but appreciate the name "Stubborn Fool." The wrapper had a toothy texture, and the pre-light draw had an earthy and leathery scent.

Lighting and Burn: 15 Points of 15 Possible

The cigar took to the fire really well and burned nicely.   It burned consistently and razor sharp for about an hour. The cigar gave off a thicker than average grey smoke. The ash held firm for well over an inch at a time.

Construction: 30 Points of 30 Possible

This cigar was very well rolled.  Moderately firm pack to it and had a solid feel and was seamlessly wrapped all the way around.  Wrapper had a toothy feel with a nice earthy tobacco scent to it.   The draw offered a bit of resistance early on but seemed to loosen up into the 2nd third providing a really nice smoke.

Flavor and Aroma: 37 Points of 45 Possible

The flavors were consistent throughout.  In my opinion it started and ended with that earthy, leathery taste. There was a creaminess to each draw which provided a decent mouth feel.   I was expecting to pick up some spice and even some sweetness like dark chocolate but I did not experience any of that.  This did not effect my review.  I enjoyed it throughout


Thanks to ntanner for sponsoring and Brlesq for letting me participate.  This was a great looking cigar which I thoroughly enjoyed.   It was not as strong as I was expecting from a full-bodied cigar, which I appreciated :-)

If anything, it was medium to full and will definitely be adding some to my humidor.
