Dapper Cigar Co Cigars

Founded in 2013 by cigar impresario Ian Reith, the Dapper Cigar Company, LLC is known for making boutique cigars. Based in California, the company’s number one goal is to create premium cigars that offer a consistency in taste and construction. Their first release was the Cubo, which started out as a small batch cigar to be shared among Reith’s friends and families. When it started to develop a large following, Reith started to produce it on a greater scale. In addition to the Cubo, the Dapper Cigar Co. offers the following lines: El Borracho, Devalido, La Madrina, Siempre, Union Break.

It is a medium-strength cigar that features a reddish Ecuadorian wrapper that covers a Nicaraguan binder, which houses fillers made of USA Connecticut Broadleaf and Nicaraguan tobaccos.

Dane B.10/24/2021About: Siempre Rosado Robusto 5" * 50
This cigar shot right into my top 5 after the first stick. Very complex, full bodied flavors. Starts off with a creamy leather, oak, peppery texture. Midway you get dark cocoa powder, toasted caramel, cinnamon spice, with a slight peppermint on the finish. The final third is a blend of everything. Keep this stick cool, be patient between draws. It’s magical.
Dane B.10/22/2021About: Siempre Sun Grown Rothschild 4"1/2 * 50
Delicious stick! Very impressed with Dapper. Strong aged leather, creamy almond, black tea, dark roast coffee, light cedar.

Rene L.08/18/2021About: El Borracho Robusto 5" * 50
I will neither confirm nor deny that I enjoy a nice drink from time to time, but if you saw the kiddish smile that crossed my face when I discovered El Borracho, perhaps you could make a solid assumption. Made in Nicaragua, this box-pressed beauty had my attention as soon as I laid eyes on its super toothy chocolate-brown wrapper and realized that it was Mexican San Andres (a personal favorite). Between its name and the type of wrapper it wears, I was already 99% sold. After cutting it and finding a subtle cocoa powder note in the cold draw, I fired up my lighter and began drinki-, err, smoking. El Borracho delivers exactly what you would expect from a dark Nicaraguan smoke, which is rich full-bodied flavor and a spicy undertone. El Borracho luckily is not a pepper bomb like some others however, instead its San Andres wrapper contributes leathery notes of cocoa and earth throughout, alongside a cedary retrohale. Towards the end, I detected subtle notes of sweet cinnamon enter the mix, with an oily finish. It's also worth mentioning that not once, not twice, but THREE times I had to put the Borracho down for 5-7 minutes, and never did it go out on me. Smoke output was generous, and the draw was excellent. All in all, I am very impressed with El Borracho, and it will likely become a mainstay in my humidor. Have a drink with it or not... you will be drunk with satisfaction either way ;]
Timothy M.08/09/2021About: El Borracho Robusto 5" * 50
Very good cigar
Chris M.01/17/2020About: Siempre Sun Grown Toro 6"1/8 * 50
This is a very flavorful and enjoyable smoke. I got to try one as a promo cigar and it left a big impression on me. I bought the box on the strength of that one cigar. Very beautiful cedar flavor comes through, and it reminded me of a similar flavor found in Opus X. 93 points easily.
