Thompson Powerhouse 30 Review



Review Courtesy of the 3 Regular Guys at Thompson Cigar.

At first blush, the Thompson Powerhouse 30 is surely a tempting offer. Thirty cigars and a sharp-looking aluminum case for just shy of thirty dollars. This case routinely flies with us when we travel and always accompanies us on poker nights. Yeah, but what about the cigars? Well, you get a 5-pack each of six different cigars: Empresario, Don Lugo, Cuban Delights, TCC Phoenix, Corojo Cubano and Socorro. That’s thirty sticks for less than a buck apiece –actually even less when you consider the value of the case.

The Empresario natural is a rather mild-bodied Dominican cigar. With a smooth wrapper and nice cap, the Empresario has a light woody aroma and a good draw yielding tastes of sweetness and faint lemongrass. The finish is short making this a good choice as a morning cigar.

    (In the event we are out of a premium brand cigar, Thompson reserves the right to substitute another premium brand cigar in it's place, of equal or greater value.)

    As a newbie cigar smoker and tired of going to local cigar stores paying top dollar, I am happy to say I just bought this and am going to write my thoughts on my first order when I recieve and smoke from the Powerhouse 30!
