Macanudo Maduro Prince Philip
7 1/2 x 49 - Maduro - Box of 10
If you are looking for a maduro cigar to knock your socks off then the Macanudo Maduro Hyde Park is what you want. Achieving the best of both worlds - smoothness and power available with Macanudo cigars.
Great cigar. Burn tended to go lopsided but it would straighten out, and it stayed lit without problems. Draw was a "tad" tight but sometimes small ring churchills are like that and it was a problem to smoke. Love the taste of these (but these are not "complex" cigars), and no harsh back-of-the-throat burning. Construction was consistent without any soft spots. It's my favourite "medium" cigar to date!
Out of a box of 10 only 1 was partially smokable. All of them had no draw and extremely dry and as hard as a rock. I'm not exagerrating and they were in the best humidor I could buy. There are "Junk".
These cigars are brimming with toasty, earthy flavors and subtle notes of sweet wood, nutmeg, coffee, almonds, semi-sweet cocoa, hazlenut and a touch of cedar. The finish has a buttery character with notes of spice and expresso. I like my cigars a little more complex, but these are nice cigars for what they are and the price.
