These are a very nice addition to the Macanudo line of cigars. Got these about a year ago when they first came out and continue to smoke them now. Very nice smokes, smooth but plenty of flavors to keep you interested. They are smooth enough for the new smokers around you and still have plenty of taste and flavors to keep the seasoned smokers happy. Great burn and draw with plenty of smoke production. Try some, you won’t be disappointed.
This is an update of a previous review. About 4 months ago I got 5 of these in a free sampler from famous smoke. I smoked one right out of the cellophane, then let another sit in the humidor for a week before smoking it and writing a review. My review was modest: all you expect from a Mac, very woody and enjoyably predictable. I let the other 3 rest in my humidor.Tonight I decided to pull one out and give it another shot, and this rivals just about anything I have smoked. It is complex and dynamic, lightly sweet, with a pleasant sort of apple and leather flavor. The draw is perfect, the burn and mouthfeel is perfect. If someone had taken the band off I would think I was smoking a $20 cigar.Patience and humidor conditioning is key with this one. Put them in your box for a few months and you are in for a dynamite experience.
Really smooth, great taste/smell. Burns well.
