Diamond Crown MAXIMUS Figurado TAA 2010 Cigar Review

Fair warning, this is a very hard to find cigar, but one I wanted to try today.  It has over 5 years of age on it and was produced for the Toast Across America 2010, not available for general purchase.  It features a dark chocolate mottled wrapper with an oily, firm even smooth pack, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, a 6×54 perfecto shape and has a barely noticeable cedar aroma.  First light reveals a perfect draw with silky smooth mild-medium bodied smoke showing flavors of slightly sweet and zingy wood followed by a long creamy textured finish of the same. The first third burns perfectly, keeping the same profile but bringing it up to a solid medium body. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 35 minutes, adding a sweet cocoa and cinnamon to the mix followed by a bigger creamy cedar through the long finish. The ash holds for a solid chunk almost to the band point. Finishing up at 1:20, the last third held the same profile continuing the body climb to medium-full with no strength. Thank you very much to viewer Mike for sending this to review!
