Kristoff Maduro

I picked up this cigar from Ed’s shop. He recently started carrying them, so I figured why not. There isn’t a lot of information on the Internet about this thing. What made this cigar look appealing was it’s oily appearance, shaggy foot, and tight pigtail cap. As always, I paired this cigar with water.

Wrapper: Brazil

Binder: Dominican

Filler: Dominican, Nicaragua

Size: Matador 6.5 x 56

Price: Around $8.00


Pre-smoke & Construction:

The wrapper had a dark, oily appearance with no visible flaws. The smell coming off of the wrapper and foot had a barnyard and woody odor. The cigar was pretty evenly packed, with only a minor soft spot or two. The pre-light draw had a little resistance, and had dark, somewhat earthy flavors.

The ash held for about 1.5 inches, and the burn required a couple minor touch-up’s.

The first third brought one word to my mind: Smooth. The smoke feel was silky smooth. You could pass smoke easily though the sinus, which resulted in an easy mild spice. There were earthy notes way in the back ground. Woodiness and sweet co-co seemed to be dominant, but there was a nice coffee flavor in mixed in there as well.

The second third saw in increase in coffee flavor. The woodiness decreased, and the sweet co-co/chocolate picked up in strength. Passing smoke though the sinus, there was minimal sweet spice. It was more of a sweet creamy flavor. There was a slight cinnamony  tingle left in the aftertaste.

The last third had an increase in that sweet, cinnamon spice. It left a nice lingering tingle in the mouth and on the lips. The smoke became creamier, and resembled caramel. When passing smoke though the nose, the increase in strength was very noticeable. Coffee was up next, along with co-co or chocolate. The woody notes fell into the background, but would pop out from time to time.

Wow what a nice cigar. The combination of creaminess, sweetness, spice, body… everything about this smoke hit the spot for me. There isn’t really anything more I can say. Try this medium to full bodied cigar!
