Quick Smoke: Primo del Rey Cazadores Maduro

13 Apr 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 six inch by 44 ring gauge stick is made by Altadis, which lists the binder as Nicaraguan, the filler as Nicaraguan and Honduran, and the wrapper as Mexican morron maduro. It’s cheap; I found a box of 50 for about $65 on the web. Even so, my initial impressions were favorable. It felt fine, had a nice tobacco aroma at the foot, and began with a pleasant, fairly typical maduro taste. After an inch or so, though, it was bitter and harsh. Just past the halfway point, a rough finish kicked in as well, and I soon put it down with no thoughts of picking up any others.

Verdict = Sell.
