Man O' War Aged Maduro Robusto: Quick Review

Man O War Aged Maduro Cigar
I've smoked a few of these now but haven't done a review. This Man O' War Aged Maduro is another blend from A.J. Fernandez that I picked up from Cigar Train a while back for $7.50.

It's covered with a stout, toothy, dark maduro colored wrapper with fine veins, tight seams and a triple cap. From the foot I find notes of cocoa and wheat, while the free cold draw has nuances of spicy Spanish cedar.

Once burning, the first few full bodied draws are a mix of cocoa and black pepper. The pepper soon fades away to a mix of toast, earth and oak. As the sharp burn moves up the cigar I find flavors of dried fruit, leather, espresso, chocolate, charcoal and burnt mocha finish in the final third.
