I realized Friday that I had not done a lot of cigar reviews lately. So, when my wife offered to let me review her Don Tomás Maduro, I took her up on the offer.
I have always liked Don Tomás’ Maduros, and have often felt that they’re a highly underrated cigar.
The 5 inch by 50 ring gauge cigar with its Honduran and Nicaraguan filler, Connecticut binder, and Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper make a wonderful presentation of an all around good cigar.
The scent on the wrapper reminds me of hill grasses and coffee with that sweet maduro undertone.
The head of the cigar slices easily with my double guillotine cigar cutter and is ready to smoke.
Two matches lights the cigar easily and evenly and soon I am puffing away.
The first draws on the cigar taste of raisins, grass, coffee and chocolate with that mild sweet maduro taste.
The cigar burns evenly, and coolly, each draw as delightful as the last.
Once purged, at the halfway point, the cigar takes on a more peppery taste but still maintains that chocolate and coffee flavor.
All in all the cigar finishes smoothly and cleanly taking about 40 minutes to smoke.
Overall, a good cigar, and well worth its price. I’m certain that if you try one you will enjoy it.
Smoke ’em if you got ’em!
