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.
Aroma – Barnyard, Smoke
Type of Cut – Straight
Cold Draw – Barnyard and Cedar
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.
Scotch – Shieldaig Speyside Single Malt 18Yr
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!
