Quick Smoke: Cohiba Maduro 5 Mágicos (Cuban)

31 Aug 2013

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.”

Cohiba Maduro

When I reviewed this Cuban in January, I found a complex profile of coffee, spice, licorice, cream, and roasted nut. Unfortunately, I also found sub-standard construction—something that’s unforgivable in a cigar that costs $23-28 apiece. I recently decided to spark up another to see if seven months of age improved the physical properties of the smoke, which is the first Cohiba blend to have a maduro wrapper. Construction was better, but not enough so to merit a full recommendation.

Verdict = Hold.
