Exile Wired

Two months ago, I suggested readers take advantage of a sale JRCigars was running on Exile Wired cigars.  Some of my comments were made based on JR’s ad copy.  After smoking several of these cigars, and having several smoked by friends, I feel I can now give an honest full review.

Cigars come in various strengths and flavors.  My Exile Wired Double Coronas are a larger cigar, at 7.25×52.  The wrapper was a medium brown, and well-constructed.  The bands are colorful, but not garish.  Exiles come in a paper wrapper, but Exile Wireds come in plastic sleeves, packaged 24 to a small wire-bound crate. 

The Exile Wired is a fuller-flavored cigar.  I would descibe it probably as a medium-full flavor.  It’s not the strongest flavored cigar around, but it’s a stronger flavor- “toastier”- than I usually want, especially without a stouter beverage such a strong coffee, whiskey, or Scotch.  This is probably not the best choice for those just beginning to smoke cigars.

The burn is usually even.  I had one cigar that didn’t burn evenly, but since all the others I’ve seen or smoked were very even, I believe that was a fluke.  The draw is on the tighter side, requiring a pull every minute or two to stay lit.  The burn time, because of the tighter draw, sturdy construction, and larger size, is very long.  I get at least 90 minutes out of every cigar.  Ash is at least 1.5 inches before falling.  Smoke is moderate.

Exile Wired Double Corona

Flavor: 3.5 stars
Construction: 4.5 stars
Burn: 5 stars

This is a solid 4-star cigar.  It’s not one I want to smoke every week, but it’s great for when you have a lot of time to spare, and a strong beverage to pair it with.  Find a friend or two, kick back, and enjoy!

    I agree with Chaos for the most part.

    But… at least I can understand the appeal of cigars. Black & Milds are the only pleasant tobacco smoking experience that I’ve had. I suppose those are the bastard children of cigars.

    They don’t have to be Magic Mountains. Robusto Largas are great, too. https://www.jrcigars.com/index.cfm?page=itemDetails&itemcode=MMRL3&/MARIA MANCINI-ROBUSTO LARGA.html
