Quick Smoke: EO Cubao Maduro No. 6

21 Feb 2010

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

EO Cubao Maduro No. 6

The original Cubao from United Tobacco (also called “EO Brands” after founders Erik Espinoza and Eddie Ortega) is an absolute gem. But I’m a little disappointed by the new Maduro version. Unveiled this summer and crafted by Don Pepin Garcia, it forgoes balance and complexity for sheer power. With a strong flavor of espresso and good construction, this is by no means a bad cigar. I’m unconvinced, however, that the Cubao Maduro No. 6 lives up to the prestigious EO pedigree.

Verdict = Hold.

    Yeah – I agree w/ the review. Big fan of the original Cubao. Not so much the maduro version.

    I guess I'm in the minority on this one, but I loved the Cubao Maduro. Far, far better addition to EO's line than the Murcielago. My complete thoughts:
