Bonita Custom Blend Bundle-Maduro

These cigars are exclusive to Bonita Smoke Shop. I ordered a bundle in an effort to find a decent morning cigar, and this the cheapest of their blends. I had good experiences with their House Blend and 18th Anniversary, so I figured it was time to try this one. As you have gathered by now, I bought these from their website. For the review, I paired with water.


Wrapper: Brazilian Maduro

Binder: Indonesian Bezuki

Filler: Dominican

Size: Toro 6 x 52

Price: Bundle of 20 – $38.95


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The wrapper had a slightly toothy appearance, with some small to medium sized veins. The smell off of the wrapper and foot was a smooth earthiness. The cigar was evenly packed, and bounced back when squeezed. The pre-light draw was good, with just a little resistance. The pre-light draw had a slightly sweet, earthy flavor.

The ash held for around 1 inch, and the burn required a couple minor touch-up’s.



The first was mostly earthy with a woody note that was not cedary. There was a nice natural tobacco flavor that had a sweet tinge to it. When passing smoke through the nose, I detected the same woody/earthy flavors with no spice.


The second third kept the dominant woody and earthy flavors that were present in the first third. There may have been a touch of coffee lingering way in the back ground. The smoke feel became smoother and had a tinge of sweetness.


The last third was basically identical as the second third. The only change was a slight pepper. Wood was the dominant flavor, followed by earthiness, and that tinge of sweet coffee.



This was a decent medium bodied cigar, and I think it met the price point. I smoke these often in the morning with coffee. When pairing this cigar with water, the simple flavor profile may bore me. But coffee does the trick. After smoking the Perdomo Slow Aged with coffee for awhile, I kind of got burnt out on it. I think this will fit the bill just fine.
