Video review HERE.
This is the new cigar from Miura Cigars. To be honest I don't know much at all about it either. All I really know is it's made in the La Aurora factory.
Last year I reviewed the La Patrona which was my number 3 overall cigar of the year. That cigar was Geidy's cigar, Jorge's wife. The Miura 12 Anos is the follow up cigar.
The cigar is well made and has a slight sheen. It is a dark brown and had a nice dense feel in the hand.
The test draw after cutting the cap was very good. The initial flavors were a sweet, tangy orange citrus with a dash of cherry, dry wood, brown sugar, marshmallow cream, and black coffee. There was a ton of black pepper rated at an 8+.
About one inch in the sweet orange and cherry mix is changing over to a sweet cedar. The marshmallow cream is still prominent and the brown sugar is also. The dry wood and coffee are somewhat subtle. The finish is a very sweet cream with nice lingering black pepper. The cigar is medium bodied but it shows signs of moving to medium to full The cigar is burning very evenly.
Just past the midpoint the cigar has changed over to a sweet cedar but it also has a little sweet cherry. The brown sugar is still prominent while the marshmallow cream is somewhat subtle. The dry wood is a little more noticeable and the coffee is still the base. The pepper is still very good. The finish is unchanged. The cigar is now medium to full bodied. The cigar is very sweet with some nice darker notes.
As the cigar ended it had a lot of sweet cedar with a touch of cherry, brown sugar, dry wood, and coffee. The marshmallow cream is hardly noticeable at this point. The pepper was very good throughout. It actually topped out at the beginning and went slightly down as it burned but never lower than a 7.5. This has been an excellent cigar. Once again Miura Cigars has come out with a great cigar. Look for them at local shops and ask for them if you don't see them!
