    Default Esteban Carreras 10 Anos Maduro ~ Torpedo

    ashauler's review

    Smoke: Esteban Carreras 10 Anos Maduro ~ Torpedo
    Drink: Yuengling Porter
    Tunes: None

    Wrapper: Nicaraguan
    Binder: Nicaraguan
    Filler: Nicaraguan
    Draw: Medium draw
    Burn: Good
    Misc: 60min

    Pre-light: Colorado maduro, almost Oscuro shade wrapper. Box press torpedo shape. Nice construction. Rich sweet tobacco scent. Same sweet leathery tobacco flavor on the cut prelight taste.



    Light: Easy. Solid medium draw.

    1st 3rd: Rich. Full body. Medium to full flavor. Dense oily smoke. Sweet tobacco, but masked somewhat by the oil flavors. Porter is a nice pairing. Leather. Earthy. Lots of different stuff I can’t describe right now.



    Ash: Crisp white and flakey. Doesn’t look too strong. Holds on for about ˝”



    2nd 3rd: Sweet tobacco now mixing nicely with a nice oily tone. Woodsy and earthy. Very rich flavors. Very nice. Dense, but not overpowering spicy or pepper on a nose exhale.



    3rd 3rd: Now more woodsy and oily even with a couple purges. Doing good though… Again, rich flavors and smooth. Nice smoke, great draw, even burn.



    Overall impression: Very enjoyable, complex smoke. I will look for more.

    Thanks to he who shall not be named.

    Nice review Will! I find the maduro cigars overall more enjoyable myself. Looks like a fine stick.

    Great review Will,
    I have half a dozen of them in the Toro size rat-holed away somewhere. I have yet to try them. Now you got me thinking.
