Pinar Del Rio Flores y Rodriguez Cabinet Seleccion Capa Maduro Toro Cigar Review

This 6×52 stick features a dark brown firmly packed slightly toothy wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, a large triple cap and a sweet oily chocolate and hay aroma. First light revels a slightly snug draw with minimal smoke output giving mild-medium bodied flavors of a slightly sweet damp tobacco, while the finish picks up adding a bit of pepper and going to a deep more substantial earthiness. The first third brings up the body to a solid medium, giving very deep earthy notes through the draw and the finish, keeping the tiny bit of pepper. It’s a slow burner, taking 25 minutes to get the second third transition point and the burn is very good. The 1/2 way point comes at 50 minutes, showing an earthy bread flavor and a long finish that’s getting thicker and even deeper. Ending at 1:15 the last third continued with no further shifts, keeping the excellent construction, just going too warm for my tatse with an inch remaining.

    I really enjoyed the one I had. Great value, too.

    “I can’t believe I got through that mouthful.” That’s what she said, lol.

    So I have given this cigar near six months in my humidor and I feel it has really come alive, great coffee and earth, musty, and smooth, one of my all time favorites after some age! I got this cigar in a sampler from winning a contest from Bryan, yet again able to find a great one thanks to Bryan!

      I just won some of these sticks too, its been almost 2 yrs since he got them so I’m looking forward to them.

      My experience is that this one doesn’t require much humidor time. My first was just a few days out of the B&M, and was perfect. Subsequent sticks from other sources were the same. Just a very enjoyable cost effective smoke. In fact, I’m not sure that aging will improve these; the flavors are great from the get-go, although not terribly complex.

    Great review for a hard to pronounce smoke – picked up two 5-packs of these up today on a Joe’s Jambalaya from CI for $20. Thanks for the review, Bryan! Keep up the great work!
