Cigars - Onyx and Don Diego
The Don Diego was a much milder cigar, but was incredibly hard to draw on because it was packed so dense. It is a five inch, 42 ring gauge Dominican cigar with a very mild taste and hardly any aftertaste. It lit well and burned more evenly than the Onyx, but it was less windy that night, so that could easily be the cause. It burned just over an hour but was quite hot to smoke, and became unpleasant after about 55 minutes and was discarded.
The two can't be compared, they're far too different, but both were nice smokes and went well with The Macallan Fine Oak 15 year, my usual cigar smoking Scotch whisky. I preferred the Onyx because it was easier to smoke, and I like a bolder taste. My usual smoke is a CAO Itallia Piazza, and I'll be sticking to that, but neither cigar was offensive.
