Macanudo Maduro Diplomat Cigar Review

This 4.5×60 perfecto offers a very oily dark chocolate wrapper with very firm construction, minimal veins and a very small cap & shoulder that gave me a bit of trouble cutting as far as unraveling. Draw was very firm, almost plugged, offering little smoke output and somewhat muted flavors. What did come out of it were very nice notes of cream, light tobacco, sweetness and a hint of pepper with a very short clean finish on the first third. The center section required two touch-ups and changed to a very light sweet leather. Getting to the last third the draw suddenly opened up, producing tons of rich creamy smoke, a creamy earthy leather and a good pepper zing. The center section was obviously not constructed properly. Thank you very much to Jeremie Plouffe for sending this sample in for review!

    Wow…your wonderful photographic images of this cigar made my mouth water at the beginning of the review. Nice job seeing it through to the end. It would have been hard for me to be that patient. Another quality review. Enjoyed it very much. Thanks

    Wow, I had lot’s of those sticks it is a crazy shape but never had any burn or tight draw’s, you must of had a bad one. It definately looked in the review poorly constructed. I actually use a v-cutter on smaller ring gauge. You can maybe try that trick in the futur. I know it gives beautiful flavor’s, sorry you had a not so much enjoyable experience.

    Great Review !

    It certainly may have been a dud, it was my only sample. Still, anyone buying this off the shelf would have the same experience, regardless of cut type. The problem was the pack, not the cut.

    I really love to share good smoking experiences, but this one… I must be frank..
    really disappointed me.

    I love Maduros.. I even prefer maduros over any other wrapper and I love the special shape of this cigar, but this stick had a very distinctive “musty” flavor in the two sticks I tried, which really ruined it for me.

    am I the only one who experienced it?

    This is truly one of my favorite cigars. Was a bit baffled that the reviewed specimen was this bad. Have hade a couple of them and all with good draw and smoke output.

    Actually just come inside after having a great puff on one!

    Ps. Bryan, really love your reviews! You help with filling my humidor full with good smokes. To bad not all of the ones you review are available in Swedish stores.
