Quick Smoke: Cusano 18 Paired Maduro Toro

3 Feb 2008

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.


This cigar has hit the Stogie Guys reverse trifecta: negative reviews from all three of us. Though the other verdicts were rendered on the natural, I didn’t find this darker sibling any better. Despite what sounds like an interesting blend – a Connecticut broadleaf maduro wrapper, a Brazilian mata fina maduro binder, and Dominican filler tobaccos – the cigar disappoints with bitter and harsh tastes. Perhaps the most amazing attribute is that a cigar with all that maduro tobacco seems to have none of the typical maduro sweetness.

Verdict = Sell.
