"Don't do it......"
The Cusano 18 has been on my list of must try cigars, but when at the shop I could not remember whether to get the maduro or the natural - I opted for the maduro. The cigar smelled great out of the wrapper - delightful. After giving it a few days in my humi at 70% I decided to try it out. Yowza! The first taste through the first inch was terrible. I decided to see what happened after the first inch; it mellowed out, but never approached anything I would consider a good cigar. I smoke a variety of cigars, and was very disappointed in this smoke. I will try the natural since it got much higher ratings. My bad.
