The Mighty Mighty Maduro is known for its rich, earthy flavors with hints of cocoa and spice, making it an excellent choice for a wide range of cigar enthusiasts.

Size: 6.25 x 60

The cigar is quite dark and large. It has a nice feel in the hand.

The test draw after cutting the cap was good. The initial flavors at light up were citrus peel, brown sugar, dark chocolate, and black coffee. There was black pepper rated at 7 1/2. Nice start but wish it was sweeter.

At the first third (36 minutes) there are some apple notes that accompany the citrus peel, light brown sugar, dark chocolate, and black coffee. The cigar is medium bodied at this point but I expect it to move up. The finish is dark chocolate with good/average lingering black pepper. I still wish the cigar had more sweetness but as it is I rated the first third 92.

As I moved through the second third (1 hour 11 minutes) the dark chocolate is steadily moving up and taking the black coffee along with it. The sweet notes have dipped. The cigar is medium to full bodied. The finish is unchanged. The dark chocolate notes are nice but I need significant sweetness to go along with them and this cigar does not have it so I rated the second third 90.

The cigar lasted 1 hour 39 minutes. The dark chocolate continued to slowly increase and the sweet notes slowly decrease. The cigar is still medium to full bodied and the finish is unchanged. This could make a nice after dinner cigar. The dark chocolate and black coffee are plentiful. They got a little too much for me. I rated the final third 88. Not a bad cigar, just heavy on dark notes.

Overall Score: 90
