Upman Mag 46 (Habano)

LPA Jun 08 (7.5 years of age).

Smooth wrapper with two veins, wrapper aroma is almost food-like, foot aroma is lighter with a small amount of ligero present. Somewhat resistant clip (used a Palio). The clip left a loose spot at the top of the cigar, but did not cause any problems. Fairly firm draw with light flavors present. Bunch was a bit firm, but not hard.

Aroma while lighting was very promising. First few puffs were pure tobacco enjoyment with a nice fruity/tannin flavor on the lips. Some light pepper tones in the nose.

Medium body smoke (and plenty of it) with lots of flavor. Predominant flavor was toasted tobacco with some leather tones.

Burn was not perfect, but only required one touch-up at about half way. Firm mottled ash that did not drop off unless the cigar was tapped.

About half way some nutmeg flavors emerged, adding to the enjoyment of the flavor.

Cigar began to heat up in last third, but smoked down to one inch. Clean finish with a nice afterflavor in the mouth. "Finger aroma" confirmed a very nice smoke.

The Mag 46 can be a hit-or-miss cigar in my opinion. I have had them where I would have called it one of the best cigars I have ever smoked. Some just left me wondering what all the fuss was about. This cigar fell firmly in the upper half of that spectrum and was an excellent choice for a warm afternoon smoke with a cup of very good Honduran coffee.

Overall this was a very good smoke. 4/5. Joe Bob says Check it Out.
