Maker’s Mark 650 Cigar Review

This 6×50 bourbon infused cigar comes in a wax sealed glass tube featuring a dark brown wrapper with a very wet squishy feel, small veins, tight invisible seams, large sloppy double cap and potent sweet aroma.  First light reveals a huge bitter wet leaf flavor, and luckily a short finish.  Draw is very good body is on the mild side and smoke output is normal.  The first third burns quickly bringing the body up to a solid medium.  Flavors are very plain, just a strange artificial sweetness I can’t give a name to – but it’s definitely nothing to do with bourbon.  The 1/2 way point comes in at about a half hour with the sweetness dying down a tick and a grassiness coming in while the body goes down to mild-medium.  Ending at an hour flavors were completely unchanged.

    Having had numerous Makers Marks over the last few years. I found that they do no age well (2-3 months) left in the glass tubes. The upside down bands are definitely unique – have yet seen that on any I have smoked. I find they are a mild to medium smoke and if you catch a good one are enjoyable as are the Makers Mark Tenth Anniversary.

    Thanks for the aluminum tube tip. I recently smoked a Monte Cristo Platinum Series that I left in the aluminum tube for 5 months in the humidor and was disappointed. With the enclosed cedar wrapper I use the tube now as a 1 stick travel humidor.
    Great photo bomb! The guy lighting the stogie with the Tiki Torch was lucky he didn’t scorch his face, not to mention the lighting faux pax…

      I’m pretty sure “the guy” was Dave Blanco. You make a pretty good straight man, Bryan.
