HVC Cerro Maduro. Starts off with a perfect draw just the right amount of resistance. Ample amount of smoke, and a nice flaky gray ash that holds on past 1 inch. Solid construction with a nice even burn line. The finish is clean with a slight lingering maduro sweetness. Flavors in the first 1/3 are smooth but not super interesting. For the most part it’s a charred wood and a maduro tobacco sweetness mix. Second third brings a bit of dry cedar and baking space. I must admit not my favorite HVC, but then again I have never been a big maduro fan. Medium body and strength. Ended much the same, so let’s see if a few months in the humidor make any type of difference. I hope so. At this point this one is a Nope!
HVC has hit a HR with this baby, construction, draw, burn and taste all 5 stars.
A bold full-bodied, complex smoke with a creamy texture and a long finish
Bought a 5 pack at auction. First couple smoked were OK. Burned fine, but flavors were pretty muted. Smoked a third after about 8 weeks in the humidor and it made a significant difference. All the traditional maduro flavors with tons of smoke and complexity. The first 2 I would rate a 3, but the last one a 4.5. Somewhat similar to a Kristoff ligero maduro.
Really nice stick that delivers a creamy smoke full of rich, deep, earthy flavors
