Review of Acid Toast

Drew Estate is in the habit of bringing it up a notch when it comes to their infused cigars. Drew Estate’s Acid line (see more here) has a distinct flavor profile, which combines well with a range of wrappers. In many of our other reviews, you can see how Drew Estate made use of unique flavors to produce high-quality infused cigars. This Acid Toast review will do likewise by sharing with you the flavor profile of Acid Toast.

Acid Toast is a throwback in its Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. Connecticut wrappers are well-known for their mild flavors, so mixing these with the Acid flavors will be interesting. In this Acid Toast review, you can determine whether this is the value you are looking for at a shade below $10.

Acid Toast is also a cigar with good length at 6 x 50. The cigar will most likely last for an hour, so if you are looking for a good smoke time, whip up some drinks as well.

Appearance of Acid Toast

The box of the Acid Toast is typical with its basic wooden style finish. Like the rest of the Acid line boxes, it is compact, light, and easy to store.
The band has black trim and a neon look, which also characterizes the Acid line. The color of the band is almost auburn with a tinge of bronze. The dark, oily Maduro wrapper stands out in its classic leathery texture.

Smoking Experience

The construction of the cigar is just right. There are minimal veins, none of which are too large or bulging.

With the cold draw, the scent immediately hits with a spicy, herbal aroma. However, the aroma is relaxing and has little strength that indicates heavy nicotine.

The first draw produces plenty of smoke. The sweetness of the cigar complements the mellow flavor of the Connecticut wrapper. Towards the end of the first third, the clove flavors blend evenly with the mild spicy flavor of the Connecticut wrapper.

With a medium to full body but mellow strength, the second thirds of this cigar show a lot of its light sweetness. The cigar is worth enjoying for relaxation. The aroma is refreshing with its distinct herbal scents.

On the last third, the sweet flavor of the cigar almost disappears. By that time, though, you’ve enjoyed much of what the cigar has to offer. The cigar lasts for about an hour, all the time offering a pleasant smoking experience.

The main problem with the cigar is its inconsistent draw. At times, puffing the cigar requires some effort. The burn is also inconsistent, so be careful to torch it properly when lighting.

Otherwise, the relaxing flavors make up for it. For almost an hour of smoke, there were a few times when I needed to relight.

Overall

Acid Toast Cigar Box

Acid toast is a cigar worth trying for Acid fans. There is a light, mellow sweetness from the cigar. If you had one of those refreshing cigars, and you liked it, add this to your list. This has a pleasant experience throughout, except for some tight draws and relights. You can try this with some light herbal tea to wind down. I give it an 85.
