La Vieja Habana Brazilian Maduro Bombero From Drew Estate

La Vieja Habana Brazilian Maduro From Drew Estate
If you read  my reviews, you know I like budget cigars and this La Vieja Habana Brazilian Maduro From Drew Estate is another nice cigar for your hard earn dollars. 

Covered by a good looking Brazilian maduro wrapper this cigar looks top of the line, and it should, it's created by Drew Estate. The wrapper shows a bit of oil, some really fine veins and it even has some fine sandpaper like tooth. I do have to mention, it had a 1" wrapper tear at the foot that was glued at the factory. However, the cigar burned through the tear with no ill effects. 

From the cold foot of this 6 x 54 beast there were notes of fermented tobacco, while the free and airy draw contained hints of cocoa. Once burning the medium bodied Bombero produced a large volume of smoke from both ends with flavors of, toast, light brown sugar, nuts, oak, cocoa, cream, coffee, peat and caramelized pecans. The cigar finished it's 60 minute burn with a charcoal and leather flavor mix. 

Since this was a mixed filler cigar, it's made with clipping from premium brands, the flavor mix was complex, but they were soft and changed rather quickly. 

Overall this was a great cigar for the dollar. It had great flavors, nice construction and a pretty good burn time. You can pick these up from Neptune Cigar for $3.92 as a single or heck just grab a box of 20 for only $49.95.
