Don Tomas Clasico Maduro

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

No big build up on the Don Tomas Clasico Maduro. I was browsing a local humidor, and saw this budget friendly cigar. It looked decent and had a decent price. I figured why not? So read on and see how the Don Tomas Clasico Maduro treated me…


Wrapper:Connecticut broadleaf

Binder: Connecticut broadleaf

Filler: Honduras, Nicaragua

Size: Robusto 5.5 x 50

Price: $3.50

Bought by me


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The brown wrapper was almost velvety looking. It was a rugged with some bumps and veins as well. The smell of the wrapper and foot was a simple grassiness. The cigar was a little soft when squeezed, and had some tight spots here and there. The pre-light draw was a little on the stiff side, and had a dark sweet flavor.

The burn required one minor correction, and the ash held for around an inch. The tight draw loosened up in the first third.

The first third opened up with a simple earthiness with pepper through the nose. After about 10 minutes in, a generic sweetness introduced itself. The smoke feel was dry with a woody aftertaste. It may not sound like much, but it wasn’t bad at all.

The second third switched things up a bit. The main flavor was a sweet and coffee-ish. Behind it was woodiness. Through the nose, that pepper didn’t go anywhere. The aftertaste remained dry and woody. The more I smoked, the richer the flavors seemed to get.

The last third had a dominant sweet/coffee-ish flavor. The sweetness was almost like mocha but may have been more similar to a dry cocoa. Like before, passing smoke through the nose produced a nice pepper. The aftertaste had earthy notes with a sweet tinge.

This was a decent medium bodied cigar. Sure, there was nothing that made me say “WOW!” But this is a $3.50 cigar, and for that, I think it meets it’s price point. I was expecting another cheap h-hum smoking experience, but I was pleasantly surprised. If a budget smoke interests you, this one is worth a try.
