Mild-Medium flavor, hints of sweetness and chocolate. Good smooth draw, somewhat un-even burn had to stay one step ahead of this one. Occasional bite-y draw, a few poor flavor spots, only lasted one draw. Over-all very smooth and wonderful taste left in your mouth, very buttery. Overall a good smoke, but not for those who wouldn't give it a good chance.
If cigars had a light designation like cigarettes do, Macanudos would definitely deserve that label. These cigars provide a wonderfully mild, smooth, classic cigar taste. The cedar-lined tubes make these great for travel, and the mildness makes these sticks great for handouts - especially for buddies who don t smoke cigars frequently. Without a doubt, this is one of my favorite cigars in the world.
I have been smoking cigars since 1980 and am one of those long-time medium- to full-bodied aficiniados who appreciates a mild cigar of excellent quality from time to time, always in the larger ring guages. This Macanudo, the 6x60 Gigante, is the perfect mild cigar, consistently tasty and friendly, start to stop, rich and creamy without ever being overpowering. It is a wonderful experience with impeccable draw and construction. It has a nutty, earthy, slightly leathery flavor, like top-grade coffee with a smidge of real cream. If you like the steadfastness of a legend, say a Lincoln, a Caddy, or a good old Imperial, if you like the Hoyo Excalibur Number One, or the Montecristo, you will fall in love right down to the nub.
When I'm in the mood for a mild cigar, the Macanudo courts are always winners.Great tasting cigar, mouth watering.
Ignore the mediocre reviews. This cigar is in the top 10 best cigars I've ever had; and I've had a lot of cigars!For me, the Macanudo Court is FLAVOR. When I smoke this, I taste the strong calm flavor of natural tobacco; on other cigars it's often the taste of someones personal attempt to make a special or cheap cigar. To me this cigar is the true taste of tobacco.
I've smoked a lot of cigars; these are my personal favorite!
very nice lil cigar easy draw great taste an a nice quick smoke
I find this cigar an excellent smoke at anytime. It is my favorite.
I've been smoking the Macanudo Duke of Windsors for the past 7-8 years and have never been disappointed my box purchases. These beautiful looking and well constructed cigars are mild to medium with a bit more complex flavor and aroma than most Macs (eg. Hyde Park). They improve immensely with aging (I take them out of the plastic sleeves and rest them in my cigar chest for 3 months or more). You will be rewarded with one of the finest mild smokes around.However, from time to time, like many belicoso type cigar shapes, occasional individual cigars get the hard draw issue. So I'm not sure if this is the issue with the lower than expected rating on this site. I'm surprised and puzzled as I have been smoking cigars for over 14 years and would rate this cigar a 90 at the very least, especially at around $5 a stick, it's a great value. The Duke of Windsor is still and always will be one of my favorite smokes in the morning and/or after lunch.
