First and foremost, I completely forgot to do a pre-light inhale on this Ave Maria Divinia.  Sue me.  Looked too damn good to wait and I got caught up in the badass Ave Maria logo.

This cigar is absolutely incredible though!  The draw is extra easy, makes me feel like I don’t even have to inhale this thing.  It’s like auto-smoke.

Had a small deficiency on the cap, but you know what?  No one cares!  Gonna burn this to the nub regardless lol.  Unless you do care, in which case here’s a photo:

Burning this Ave Maria Divinia at 10:45 in the morning with some coffee and the occasional sip of water to stay hydrated after this mornings smoke session.

This stogie holds it’s ash pretty well, I guess to be expected from a box press.  White ash – the good shit.

Kind of reminds me of a milder, softer, gentler yet ridiculously smooth and flavorful cigar.  Kind of like a cuban, or so my friends that don’t respect the embargo tell me.     😉

Just blew this thing through the nose:  heavenly.  Definitely a mild smoke with lots of character.  I’m smoking this one in the morning, but I could see this cigar paired with some Laphroaig later or might even try it with a nice aged rum.

Here’s that ash after about 12.5 mins (how’s that for precision!?):

Now I gotta order a box!  Might or might not write some more afterward, but so far I need more of this cigar in my life!  About to take the wrapper off so I can keep smoking it like it’s oxygen under water.

You know what?  Here’s that ash again about 25 mins in.  BOOM! Ave Maria Divinia for the win.

Perhaps the coolest thing about this cigar is that my hands don’t smell like an ashtray afterward.  I smell like quality tobacco, so much so that I’m tempted to go kiss the Domestic Engineer and see what she thinks…

Great
One of the better cigars I've had in a while. Definitely boxing these, and keeping for special occasions. A bit expensive though. I agree with the rum pairing, or maybe a good Irish whisky.

Over Priced Divinia.
For the money I expected a lot more in the flavor department. All other smoking characteristics were very good. I had a difficult time enjoying the cigar knowing the money I spent.

I thought this was a solid smoke, if over priced, but I like my cigars with more kick to it

I've had several of these and they are all the same which is a mark of a great cigar. I know the price point may turn off most but you can easily and routinely find a fiver on cbid for about $30 which makes it a steal. Great job on the review
