Last month, Bourbon and Broadleaf was invited to an exclusive event for Zippo and …
The 1502 Ruby is a medium bodied cigar with some great flavor hints and a smooth finish. Not one bit of spice taste despite the binder and filler being from Nicaragua. However, that did not take away from the overall experience of this cigar. The wrapper has a seemless look which adds to the entire feel of the cigar.
Made up of a dark Ecuadorian wrapper and a Nicaraguan binder/filler, the 1502 Ruby is crafted to please both the experienced and novice cigar smoker. The fruit and nut hints would make this a great cigar for really anyone who does not enjoy the typical cigar taste. It is a medium bodied cigar but is balanced extremely well with its sweet flavors.
Pairing: The 1502 Ruby cigar would pair nicely with rum, coffee and a nice sweet wine like merlot or a Bay Breeze. Then again, if you drink Bay Breezes you should get off this website and never return. Just saying get real drink and stop being such a Peter Pan.
This cigar is a solid B in my honest opinion. Find it, buy it smoke. Thank us later.
