J.L. Salazar Y Hermanos Reserva Especial Seires V Maduro Churchill Cigar Review

This 7 1/4×52 box press stick offered a dark chocolate wrapper with fairly soft construction, a toothy wrapper and just some small veins and a wonderfully spicy aroma. Total burn time was 1:10 with only one spot near the 2nd third transition that required a touch-up. Draw was slightly loose and produced huge mounts of rich smoke from the start. Overall body was medium, although the first third during the draw was pushing full for a little while. Flavors were mildly complex, including a smooth creamy leather, slight sweetness with a touch of coffee and cocoa at some points of the last half. The finish was very short and clean, leaving just a hint of a pepper and spice. Thank you to Cuban Crafters for sending this for review, I greatly appreciate it! Photography by BG Pictures.

  • Nice review. This is my favorite Cuban Crafters cigar by far.

    Just got a box of these on way back from Miami. Can’t wait to try them out in a few months. This is a really great brand I stumbles across by accident.
