Casa Cuevas Maduro – Cigar Review

Casa Cuevas Maduro

Manufacturer – Casa Cuevas Cigars

Size – Toro Factory Pressed

Wrapper – Mexican San Andreas

Tobacco Blend – Columbia, Nicaragua and Dominican Republic

Pricing – $7.50

Body – Medium

Construction/Appearance:

The Casa Cuevas Maduro is velvety to the touch with a darker chocolate like coloring to it. There are  minimal veins and visible but tight seams. 

Pre-Light: 

Aroma – Barnyard, Smoke

Type of Cut – Straight

Cold Draw – Barnyard and Cedar

After Toast:

First Third – Chocolate, Spice, cedar and some citrus rind like notes all come forth upon light. Few minutes in some of that barnyard creeps in on the finish with some black pepper like notes. The burn is sharp and ash falls at the inch mark. 

Second Third – Chocolate and spice continue here with that citrus component showing itself a bit more here. The Barnyard and pepper fall off in this third. Some bbq like smoked notes enter the picture as well! The burn remains sharp. 

Final Third – The Chocolate and spice continue here and that Smokey finish holds strong in this third. The burn remains sharp.

Suggested Pairing:

Wine – Domaine Carneros Le Ciel Estate 

Scotch – Shieldaig Speyside Single Malt 18Yr

Overall Experience:

This Casa Cuevas Maduro is a nice medium bodied smoke experience with a real nice complexity in terms of flavor. We enjoyed the chocolate and spice base and each of the additional notes added to the profile during the transitions. This is a good cigar for those looking to make the jump from mild to medium bodied sticks. So far we have not had a smoke from this line we haven’t enjoyed. Check out their Habano as well!
