Review of "Quai d'Orsay 50"


Aug 18, 2020
Hi everyone

This is my 2nd review and it will be about a cigar I enjoyed a lot : Quay d'Orsay 50

Wrapper color : Colorado

Type : Small Robusto

Pre light : Sweet aromas and herbal. The construction seems great with no imperfections

1st third : The savour is mostly sweet and the sensation creamy.

On the retrohaling, the aromas are on the pastry, chocolate and a little woody (cedar I think).

It is so smooth and subtle : a great moment.

2nd third : There are no big changes : The savour stays sweet and the sensation creamy.

Nevertheless, the aromas evolves a little with apparition of a nut flavor in addition to the pastry that remains.

3rd third : the sweet aromas tends to disappear replaced by something more vegetal (herbs…) but the nuts remain (chestnut I’d say). The sensation is now a little more sour.

The end is a little harsher (normal) so I let it extinguish.

Anyway I had a fantastic time with this cigar

What I like :
  • perfect construction and a very nice combustion
  • good density of the smoke
  • mild cigar with many sweet aromas
  • smooth and very subtle cigar
What I didn’t like :
  • really nothing… oh yes just one thing indeed : too short ;).
So general rating will be 9/10 for me.

Just one precision : if you want to pair it with a drink,I recommend something not too hard because I think it will spoilt it.

Thanks to all who read me till the end :)

Very good review, and parallels my experiences with this cigar, as well. It's not a stand-out smoke to me, but still good (and will be better with age).
