The El Original line was created in 1999 by the Island Smoke Shop in Key Largo, FL. The cigar incorporates a five county blend of tobacco, which is capped of with an Ecuadorian wrapper. The El Original is described as a full-bodied cigar, so I’ll fire it up and let you know my take on it.
While editing this video I realized that I never said whether or not this cigar was full-bodied or not. I would generally classify this cigar as medium-bodied, but full-flavored. Approximately the first inch of this cigar could possibly be classified as full bodied, but the cigar quickly mellowed out.
Now this video runs a bit longer than I originally intended, but this cigar inspired me to talk a little more about the differences between various vitolas. I would certainly appreciate you providing some feedback in the comments section to let me know your take on this subject.
