Casa Cuevas Maduro

Review Cigar #1: This cigar would be a great first for a new smoker. No major transitions noticed between thirds, the light body means it isn't overwhelming the senses, and the nicotine kick was not too severe. A caramel candy or cream soda would pair well to take the edge off. Wrapper quality is solid - offering a shiny sheen, solid construction, and a nice thick wrapper. The draw is great, toward the snug side. No touch-ups were needed until the very end, where I almost expect a touch-up being needed. The smoke texture was a bit mouth-watering for me. The ash was quite strong and sported a bright white/silver ash.Temperature 89°F / Humidity: 40% / Duration: 2hrs

Review Cigar #2: No further comments to make. The experience was much the same from start to finish. I guess there's something to be said for consistency! Temperature 88°F / Humidity: 45% / Duration: 1hr 40m

Musty, dank basement

A little pepper, slightly sweet, musty oak, toasted wheat bread, some mint at tail end. Creamy smoke.

Creamy smoke continues, same flavors as first third, with some new caramel hints and diminished pepper kick.

A little pepper returns, with the same previous flavors at a higher intensity.
