Casa Magna Domus Magnus Limitada

Monday, September 5th, 2011

I picked up these cigars at Ed’s shop recently. I’ve been a fan of the Casa Magna Colorado for years now. When Ed told me he had these, I immediately picked a few up. They are in limited quantities, which probably helped my decision. With anticipation, I quickly smoked what I bought, and offer you my thoughts.


Wrapper: Nicaraguan Sun Grown

Binder: Nicaragua

Filler: Nicaragua

Size: 5.75 x 52

Price: $8.95


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The wrapper leaf was virtually flawless and had a nice chocolaty look. The smell of the wrapper had a mild spice and wood. The foot was pretty much the same. The cigar was packed evenly for the most part, maybe a lump here and there. The pre-light draw had slight resistance, and had a strange flavor. It was nutty but not in the traditional sense.

The ash held for over an inch. The burn didn’t require any corrections. It did get wavy from time to time, but it always corrected itself.

This cigar didn’t have a ramp up period, it went right into the flavors. It kind of threw everything at me at once. Up front was wood and nuts. There was a nice blast of pepper. No exhaling the entire draw through the nose on this cigar, you’d burn your face off. A chocolaty bitterness came about after about 1.5 inches in. There was an interesting citrusy sensation mixed in there as well. My crude palate could have very well missed something. This thing was a flavor bomb.

The second third calmed down a bit, and I didn’t get overwhelmed with flavors. It seemed to settle into a more straight forward flavor profile. The dominant flavor was a rich chocolate with the associated bitterness (not bad bitterness). The pepper didn’t go anywhere and kept it’s zing. Nuttiness with woody notes were there as well. The dominant flavor remained rich chocolate a lot of the time. It did take turns with nuttiness and wood at times. It is worth mentioning that sometimes I got that citrus feeling as well. It was a flavor bomb, but my primitive palate started to get the hang of it.

The last third continued the same pace as the second third, in terms of flavors. No point in repeating myself. The body did creep higher into the full range, but didn’t kick my ass. Otherwise the flavors switched up nicely just as they did before. Very nice.

This was a damn good full bodied cigar. Looking back at what I wrote in this review, I don’t know if I gave it justice. I may have well just wrote “Damn good, try it!” Too bad this is limited in quantity. I’d love to have this in my regular rotation of cigars. Go try this now!
