Macanudo Maduro Sampler Edition Cigar Review
This 6×60 cigar comes in a special retailer only 4 pack sampler with three other Macanudo blends, all in a 6×60 format. It features a coal black, thin firm wrapper with small veins, invisible seams, a nice oil sheen, a double cap and a rich hay and tobacco aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw, medium body flavors of a rich, smooth an oily aged tobacco with a creamy textured finish, putting out plenty of smoke. The first third comes down to a mild-medium, with creamy smooth oily tobacco flavor with a bit of earth and sweetness, holding the same flavors on the long finish. Draw and smoke output is excellent with a good burn, not needing any attention. The 2nd third changes up slightly to a slightly sweet and oily musty chocolate. It’s an interesting combo of flavors, and it’s growing on me. The last third drops the mustiness for a dry light earth flavor, leaving a much heavier, warmer finish. Ending at 1:10 min the stick had excellent construction the whole way through. Thank you to General Cigar for providing this for review!
