A coarse, dark, Mexican San Andreas Negro maduro wrapper with only 1 small, thin vein visible, very visible seams, and a rough, uneven, short to medium length cap. An evenly firm bunch, and an overall somewhat attractive cigar.

A slightly uneven burn throughout the length, but not enough to need correction. Flat coal, and a strong grey ash. Draw was very easy.
Excellent smoke volume with cool, smooth smoke and a strong, fragrant floral and herbal aroma.

Excellent richness and body, generous, perfectly balanced floral, woody and herbal flavors, and a mild-medium strength.

A medium strength aftertaste/finish of medium length, of an herbal, woody and floral taste.


SUMMARY:

Cigar Review- Lou Rodriguez Maduro Edicion Reserva

BY THE KATMAN on JULY 22, 2012
(Note: his was a Churchill)

ďThe cigar is entering the last half and it is burning on all 6 cylinders. Loads of flavor. More of a medium/full body emerging and a nice even burn. No touch ups required.

The final third is pretty much the same. No major shifts occurred. But thatís OK. I enjoyed the hell out of this cigar and blend. I think anyone can enjoy this cigar. Itís a good blend for beginners who are ready to take their next step and a good flavorful cigar for us aficionados. I might add that while I considered the cigar delicate, the construction surprised me as it took me to the nub. There was no loose tobacco at the cap during the entire smoke. No spitting out bits of this and that.

Wasnít able to find much in the way of reviews, leading me to believe that this marca was basically an unknown, and found no reviews or information past 2013, where Iím guessing it was discontinued.

For me, it was of great character, and received a great overall score of 95.
