Macanudo Estate Reserve No III Cigar Review – This 5×50 stick features a medium brown wrapper with a soft satin feel, slightly soft even pack, small veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap with a cedar and honey aroma. First light reveals a snug draw with good mild-medium bodied smoke production giving flavors of a gritty cedar and earth note followed by a touch of pepper on the long finish. The first third changes very little just bringing the body up to a solid medium. Construction is great but the burn is very fast. Ending at 40 minutes the rest of the cigar was unchanged profile wise but did add in a bit of strength amping things up a notch. The burn slowed in the last 1/2 dropping the ash in a 2″ chunk.
