Macanudo Vintage Maduro 1997 Perfecto Cigar Review
This 6×49 stick features a very dark, almost black wrapper with a thick, oily, toothy lumpy feel, minimal veins, tight seams, the trademark metal band and a light cedar aroma. First light reveals a great draw with plentiful smoke output showing mild-medium flavors of a slick oily, sweet, creamy textured light cedar with a short clean finish. 15 minutes in the first third opens up and keeps the same flavors, just growing the finish longer. Performance is perfect. The 2nd third smokes exactly the same, holding the ash in a solid chunk for over 45 minutes. Ending at 1:25 the last third took on a warmer overall tone with a deeper wood and sweetness through the finish. Thank you very much to StogieBoys.com for providing this sample for review!
