Camacho Corojo Maduro Gigante

Camacho Corojo Maduro Gigante
I picked up this Camacho Corojo Maduro Gigante cigar from Cigar Train a couple of months ago. If your not close to Spokane you can pick up a single from MikesCigars.com for a meager $8.25 ea.

It comes wrapped in a great looking maduro colored wrapper and it's packed well full length. The cigar is put together nicely with nearly invisible seams, the finest of veins and a triple cap. Testing the aroma at the foot there are bold notes of molasses and the free cold draw has notes of ripe tree fruit.

Once lit, the cigar starts out in the medium body range and finishes medium/full. It has a nice balance of flavors, heavy to earth and chocolate, with some spicy cedar, earth, barnyard, molasses, coffee, cream and sugar.

After the first inch or so the wrapper started developing an oily sheen and the smoking time of the Corojo Maduro Gigante was an excellent eight-five minutes.

Just let me say, I've really been impressed by these Camacho cigars over the past two months and plan on always keeping a few in my humidors.
