In a word… YUM! In three words… YUM, YUM, YUM! Today I had the pleasure of smoking the Ortega Serie D #10 Natural. This Belicoso weighs in at 6 inches long with a 52 ring gauge. I love the look of this rustic cigar, no fancy wrapper here just plain’ol gorgeous Ecuador Habano Rosado tabacco wrapped around delicious aged Nicaraguan Jalapa and Esteli tobacco fillers. The pre-light smell is a very strong dry hay smell and after cutting you will find the PERFECT draw.

Upon toasting and lighting the Ortega Serie D Natural supplies my taste buds with cedar and nuts and plenty of creamy, juicy “stick to your ribs” smoke.

Ortega Serie D Natural cigar rating and review

This cigar changed my outlook on natural wrapped cigars.

The cigar burns marvelously and I can just about guarantee you will ride this one to the nub.

This medium to full bodied smoke will begin to develop into a buttered toast flavor with hints of honey sweetness and the flavor on your tongue from the tobacco is a really nice and savory meaty flavor. The Ortega Serie D offers a bit of a spicy kick which will please any cigar aficionado.

Ortega Serie D #10 Natural Belicoso cigar review

One amazing factor about this cigar is the price, these perform like a super premium yet will only set you back about $6-$7. Based on the performance that’s a bargain in my opinion. If this is a preview of the type of cigars Ortega will be producing in his new found solo venture we are all in for a real treat.

Would I smoke this cigar again?
You bet I would… in fact I have smoked several of these since. I normally buy Maduro wrapped cigars but this natural blew my mind and gave me a whole new outlook on natural cigars. Yes… it was that good!
