Quick Smoke: Maria Mancini Magic Mountain Maduro

3 Apr 2011

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.”

This box-pressed torpedo (6 x 54) has a Costa Rican wrapper around Honduran binder and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos. The natural version of this Nestor Plasencia creation, which features a Habana 2000 wrapper, was a favorite of mine nearly a decade ago. The torpedo is constructed well with a sturdy ash and an easy draw, though the burn needs a few touch-ups. The flavors are straight-forward black coffee and roasted notes, with some slight bitterness. All in all, the Magic Mountain Maduro is an average smoke with a reasonable $3 price tag.

Verdict = Hold.
