Macanudo Maduro - Cigar Review

A lowly-played white-noise delivery of soft oh-so soft notes. Old lady perfumed powder, floral. Cocoa butter fleetingly, then semi-sweet chocolate hangs ‘bout. Lemon pepper with a growing-smooth black pepper retro-hale. Suede/earthen under-belly. Sharpens slightly with a citrusy Americano addition at nigh half-point. Well-rolled with tight seams and excellent draw. Burns a tick moistly-so and top-leaf threatens a lag. No re-touchings are mandated. Nicely and roundly-balanced, nice ‘nuff of nuance. Complex, particularly in such a mild context. Final-third exhibits a chicken-broth herbal addition. Finish is rather long floral legs with a sweet tongue-tingle. Smoke stays cool to the somewhat softened nub.
