Maldonado Mogul Cigar Review
This 6×52 stick features a dark brown slightly oily and toothy wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, a slightly spongy even give, very light pack and rich sweet hay aroma. First light reveals slightly snug draw with good smoke output showing medium-full body flavors of an oily, slightly peppery leather with a smooth creamy short finish. The first third stays near full body with an excellent draw and smoke output transitioning to a smooth, slightly sweet and earthy wood, with a bit of pepper that only comes through on the finish. Hitting the 1/2 way point 30 minutes in, the ash falls off in a very solid chunk and the flavor profile is the same. Ending at 1:10 the last third picked the creamy leather back up and added a nice sweetness on the draw. Thank you to The Maldonado Dynasty for sending this in for review!
