La Duena

Posted in Cigar Reviews on September 10, 2012 by Griff

Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf

Binder: Nicaraguan, Connecticut Broadleaf

Filler: Nicaraguan, Connecticut Broadleaf

Size: Robusto 5×50

Pre Light

The wrapper on the latest released from My Father Cigars has a dark brown color to it with a very oily sheen.  The band may seem a little simple to some but I like it.  The aroma off the cold cigar is of sweet manure and a slight spice.  After slicing off the cap it opened up a free flowing draw with a wood and chocolate.

1st Third

After an initial spice kick it gave way to the chocolate and wood flavors that I was getting on the cold draw.  The burn stayed relatively even although it did get a little wavy but corrected itself.

2nd Third

There is a ton of creamy white smoke coming off the cigar with every draw.  The middle portion starts an earthy flavor to go along with the wood and chocolate flavors.  The cigar is still burning cool and somewhat even.

Final Third

The flavors of chocolate, wood and earth are met in the final third with a dull coffee flavor.  The burn stayed cool and even down to the end.

Overall

I enjoyed the La Duena.  It had lots of flavors and they all complimented each other.  Construction was well done and the price point.  Go out and check if your local B&M has received any of these yet and give em a try.

Keep em burnin’
