Capoeira Aluno Cigar Review

This 5.5×46 maduro stick features a tightly packed, firm dark brown wrapper, some small and medium veins, tight seams, a very oily sheen with a soft toothless feel and a cocoa powder aroma. First light reveals very unique flavors! Medium bodied it gives an oily, VERY chewy, slightly salty and meaty taste, with an earth core. The finish has some pepper but no zing or spice kick. The first third continues with all the same qualities, ramping up the body to full. The draw is perfect, smoke output is huge and the burn is very good. 25 minutes in the 2nd third shows no further changes, just continuing with a full on flavor assault forcing me to slow down a bit, taking no more than 2 draws per minute. 50 minutes in by the start of the last third, no flavor changes had occurred but the strength was creeping up. Ending at 1:05 where it got too hot for my taste, the whole stick proved to be very consistant in blend with no further changes. A big thanks goes out to viewer ‘megladon8’ for sending me this to review!

    Sounds like something that needs to be tried. I have seen these advertized in the Famous Smoke Shop catalogs but never heard a word about them. Thanks Bryan.

    Smoking one of these as I’m watching, and I have to agree that it is one tasty cigar. My only real complaint is one that I have about a lot of cigars these days – the band is too damned big!
