Casa Magna Oscuro No. 4
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.
Smoked a large size Oscuro, maybe the Toro, from a local smoke shop...and found the flavor to be in the 95's but the draw was terrible. I wont try another one of those, but the flavor got my attention, no doubt. Saw the No 4 on cigarmonster and thought the smaller profile might draw better and have the same flavor. And i was Right! This is a very good small cigar. I did let them rest for 2 weeks in a well seasoned humidor which is critical to any smoke ordered online.
