Casa Magna Oscuro Churchill Gordo
6 5/8 x 56 - Oscuro - Single
Casa Magna Oscuro cigars are the younger brother of Cigar Aficionado's Number One cigar of 2008. Cuban-seed Honduran Oscuro wrappers glisten with oils, and conceal a robust blend of Nicaraguan and Honduran longfillers and Honduran binders. Full-bodied, their peppery character up-front mellows to deliver deep, dark tobacco flavors with subtle complexity, ample sweetness, earthy-leathery notes, and a powerful aroma. An exceptional cigar, to be sure.
I had previously reviewed these cigars as great but having serious draw problems. I based that review on two 5 packs I had ordered. I contacted SAG Imports and expressed my gripe and they promptly issued me 10 replacements that did not have any draw problems at all. I have since purchased boxes of the Churchill and the Toro and all have proved superb smokes.
Too tight, poor draw. When you get a good one these cigars are excellent. However, there seems to be some quality control issues since about half of the ones I have smoke are rolled so tight it is like trying to suck concrete through a straw to get a good draw. Hope they get it sorted out.
Very good cigar! Not over powering compared to some full flavored cigars. Some uneven burn, but VERY enjoyable. Will definately smoke again & highly recommend it. A five pack is worth the cost.
You can see that my scores are high across the board except for draw. I am really picky about draw. curious what others think. having said that i still give a thumbs up because the taste, when you are able to pull it out, is excellent. i would recommend but know that you will fight with the draw. for incredible taste and excellent draw go with the colorado robusto line. Now THAT is an incrdible smoke!
