Hey guys, my life has been and seems to be seemingly more crazy as it goes on and I apologize for the last two inconsistently published blogs.
So I smoked a Dapper Cubo Maduro which boasts a damn near flawless, beautiful Mexican San Andreas wrapper, and then a Nicaraguan binder and filler. Almost no visible veins on the wrapper, and it had a nice oily wrapper. Smelled almost like a semi-sweet chocolate from the outside. The cold draw had an orange citrus like flavor to it.
Right upon light-up, the smoke already was full of flavor! I picked up right away on some citrus notes followed by a deep coffee and cream flavor. Further into the first-third, semi-sweet chocolate became more apparent also. Heading towards the second-third, roast coffee became pretty abundant. Hint of clove but not much.
Second-third is where roast coffee became very prominent. Started to pick up on hints of leather as well as a bit of black pepper. The cigar had a nice earthiness and cocoa to it at this point. Slight bitterness as well which was pleasant, almost like cardamom..
Look at that beautiful, full ash. This cigar was built with a lot of care and attention. The final third I only really could pick up on roast coffee and black pepper. Small amount of leather too. This was a damn good cigar that was medium-full flavor and medium strength. Definitely worth $10 if you ever find yourself face-to-face with this masterpiece!
Thank you Dapper for letting me try this fantastic cigar.
