Cigar Reviewed: Macanudo M Espresso with Cream
Thank you to cigar world for choosing me to test this cigar!
First things first, I'm not a fan of flavored cigars, and this stick didn't change my mind.
It smelled like coffee coming out of the cello, and the presentation was nice with the barber pole wrapper. Cold draw was dominated by espresso/ coffee flavors and very tight. I did have to use my perfecdraw tool to loosen it up some and make it smokeable. Aside from the right draw the construction overall seemed to be pretty good, about what I expect from Macanudo. I did have to touch up the burn a few times but nothing crazy.
I picked up a lot of coffee flavor in the non traditional tobacco sense of that makes any sense? It had a nice creamy finish but it's just not for me.
My palate doesn't recognize the natural tobacco flavors when it's flavored and in reality, that's what I really want to taste, not something that you add to the tobacco.
My overall rating is pretty low on this one being as it just ain't for me, 2 stars tops.
