Cruzado Marios Cigar Review
This 7×47 stick features a medium brown mottled wrapper with a sost pack, very slight tooth, bit of an oily sheen, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap and partial pigtail with a dam hay aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with good smoke output giving medium-full body flavors of a very smooth creamy sweet tobacco with a short clean finish. The first third mellows the sweetness just a bit going from the almost artificial flavor to a mellow cocoa sweetness with a bit of the tobacco. Burn is very good, draw and smoke output are excellent, with the finish growing longer keeping the creamy silky smooth flavors almost till the next draw. The 2nd third starts by dropping the tobacco and ramping up the chocolate notes, bringing a bit of pepper to the mix as well. The sweetness died down just leaving an overall dessert like experience, with the same fairly long smooth creamy finish. By the band point flavors transitioned a tad more dropping the sweetness in favor of a little more pepper and zing, keeping the chocolate and creaminess. Ending at 1:15 where it got too warm for my taste, the last third showed no further changes. Thank you very much to viewer Chaz for sending this sample in!
