Chris Khatschadourian trying out the El Septimo Salvador Dali at Fidel in Antelias, Lebanon.

Have a Cigar: El Septimo Salvador Dali

Name: El Septimo Salvador Dali

Country: Costa Rica

Shape: Parejo

Size: Toro (6 1/2 inches x 54)

Strength: Medium to Full

Happy to have tried this wonderful cigar from El Septimo’s Sacred Arts Collection. It will definitely find its spot in the top 10 cigars I smoked in 2022.

The one I chose was named after Salvador Dali, the surrealist. It was the right vitola for the occasion. But I plan on smoking all of the others in the collection as well. For sure. The Sacred Arts Collection also includes the names of Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Botticelli, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Da Vinci. And all of the cigars look like works of art.

Full-bodied and medium-to-full in strength, the good-looking Salvador Dali was successfully paired with a glass of Havana Club Barrel Proof.

In the first few draws, I could detect subtle hints of dried peach, blackberry, and citrus fruits. The predominant notes throughout, however, were of dark chocolate, coffee, white pepper, and carob.

As I had a long conversation about life and cigars with my friend, the Salvador Dali burned softly between my fingers and gave out a lot of smoke.

A near-perfect cigar.
