    Being a new botl with an unrefined palate, I was curious to know which cigars have a predominant "leather" flavor? Maybe I can smoke some and discover what everyone is talking about when they say it tastes like leather. Thanks.

    I have found that many Maduros from ITC and Perdomo sport a nice leather taste...a good number of darker maduros will have this flavor as well. Esp. if the fillers are aged for a long time at the factory...my fellow botl may correct me if im wrong, but thats my $.02

    Hope ya find what youre looking for man...best of luck!

    Oliva serie V is very leather esque, and the Opus X can be very leathersome...

    I always get leather out of an Ashton VSG, Illlusione 88, Oliva V and Liga Privada to name a few.

    I agree with the Oliva s. V I've yet to try my Opus X, but I bet it has leather in it too.

    I'm smoking a Padilla 1948 right now that has an unidentifiable flavor. Maybe leather? Sounds about right.

    Yeah opus is a good one. Ecuadorian habano wrappers also give of a good leathery flavor.

    Bit if you really just want to taste leather and only leather try a partagas spanish rosado.

    I think you will find that earthy and lether go hand in hand. My pallet is not that refined and I've been smoking cigars for a long time. However I do find Brown Tats and DPG I find to have this distinct flavor.

    My feelings the same on the Brown Tats and DPG (to me a wonderful pepper/spice taste also). My taste buds are no where near a lot of folks are on here. But the leather taste that folks refer to a lot is more of and earthy taste to me. But like one has already stated I find the maduro's along that line of taste.

    i still can't identify "leather" either... might have to take one for the team and buy some cheap leather from the fabric store and chew on it.... maybe then i can have an "ah ha" moment....

    The most prominent hints of leather for me have come from a Punch Rare Corojo, a La Flor Dominicana Reserva Especial and a Joya De Nicaragua Celebracion. There were probably several others before I knew that the flavors could be so mixed and broad.

    La Aroma De Cuba EE. Probably the tamest version of ecuadorian sun-grown wrapper I've ever come across, and with the pepper at the far back, the leather really shines!

    Rocky Patel Connecticut. That one has always been cedar and leather to me.

    To me that stick was really really chocolate-cocoa flavored, more than any other I've smoked. It didn't make me think of leather though. I need to have another.
