Brick House Maduro Robusto

Brick House Maduro Robusto
Last Sunday was the 1 year anniversary party for Cigar Train here in Spokane. As and added bonus, Ed Ryan from JMG International was there slinging Brick House cigar deals all day. I picked up a couple of these Brick House Maduro Robustos in one of the deals.

This well packed robusto was all wrapped up with a seamless, stout, toothy, oscuro colored wrapper that contained only a couple smaller veins. As a bonus it was finished off with a slick looking triple cap.

From the cold foot there were flavor notes of tree fruit and cocoa while the free draw tasted like spicy cedar mixed with fruit. Once the Brick House Maduro was burning it produced huge, medium bodied, mouthfuls of cocoa and black licorice flavored smoke. These initial flavors were soon followed by notes of toast, cream, chocolate, black pepper, ripe tree fruit, straw and charcoal. The cigar finished with a full bodied mix of black pepper and burnt mocha.

Overall this was a darn tasty cigar. The flavor mix was fairly complex, the burn was razor sharp and it had a forty-five minute burn time. If you haven't tried this cigar you should!
