Inception Cigars (plus giveaway)

Inception Cigars BCD

A while back, I received some samples of a newly released brand called Inception Cigars. If there’s some confusion over the name “Inception,” these Inception Cigars come from the folks at JSR Cigar Distributors in Houston. I believe there is at least one other brand from a separate company offered under the name “Inception,” but I’ve heard there’s some sort of work in progress to clean up this naming mix-up. In any event, I’m always willing to try something new, so I welcomed the chance to put together a review for these cigars.

After a long day of work and traveling, I found the Inception Cigars BCD to be nice and relaxing. It didn’t “wow” me or blow me away by any means, but it’s worth a try. The flavors are subtle and not overly complex, so I’d recommend smoking this with a fresh palate. You should be able to detect enjoyable notes of wood, baking spice, and ginger, along with a gentle sweetness and a black pepper finish. All in all, not bad.
