My name is Craig Schneider and I am what you’d call the “color” commentator of our show.If I sound vaguely familiar or if my drawn out rants have put you to sleep in the past, it was likely during an episode of Dogwatch Cigar Radio where I guest hosted on over 75 occasions.
I am a sustainable home builder and architect by day and an infatuated husband and father by night. I love my life. I love my wife. And I’m happy to be here with you all. I prefer my cigars aged and their profile to be slightly sweet and bready.I’ve smoked probably 50 perfect cigars in my life and I hope that every next one I light up will be the 51st. There’s nothing quite like it.

    Ok so here I am the survivor of not only the original Chigringo but now the Chigringo 2.0 (reloaded) as well!

    I received the coveted corona from Craig with the agreement that I would review the cigar. I don’t confess to having the worlds best palette, but lets get started:

    The cigar is a corona of sorts my Chigringo was 5.5x? I don’t know the diameter of the cigar and was kept around 60% humidity. The Conneticut (?) wrapper had a very faint smell of cheerios and the foot had a sweet smell to it. I cut into it with a V cutter and lit it up!

    In the first inch the cigar was VERY mild ..to the point were I worried if I would be saying the cigar was just going to be hot air. (Appropriate for Craig but c’mon)
    Fortunately I was able to pick out some light spice on the retro and the smoke had some creamy quality to it is all I can say.

    Moving on towards half way the cigar became pretty much what it was for me. It picked up a coffee flavor (especially prevalent on the retro) and would have notes of toasted oats (there are those cheerios).

    In all the cigar burned great with the dominant flavors being roasted coffee and toasted oats. As noted these flavors came in 1/2 way and stayed until the end. I should point out a lot of flavor came from this cigar on the retro and finish for me. The smoke itself was creamy but more in a whole milk way than true cream if that makes any sense. It really reminded me of having Farmer Bros coffee after putting cream in it as that brand sometimes tastes like cereal then. The cigar burned for an hour and I put it down with a little under an inch left as it finally started to get harsh.

    Is the Chigringo Reloaded life changing? No, but it is a good cigar and I would give a buck or 2 to enjoy another corona in the morning or cutting the grass. I don’t have the fancy review chart the website has but admitting to saying I would spend cash on this should be positive review enough.
