Cohiba Maduro Secreto

This brand new offering celebrated it's 30 day anniversary in my humidor by being burned up.

To start with it is a beautiful dark wrapper and the pre-light draw is a bit tight which I remedied with the help of the infamous Henry Tool from Barcochris. It has a bit of a sweet draw.

The burn is perfect - never had a cigar have such an even burn and beautiful ash. The first 1/3 of the cigar starts out a little spicy and then goes right into a wheat flavor (yes, wheat) - the tones reminded me of bread. The second 1/3 smooths out considerably and loses the wheat/grain taste and goes to a very smooth earthy taste - no one taste in particular. The last 1/3 has a huge cocoa flavor to it - I literally burnt my fingers.

I paired this with a cup of coffee (sweetened) and it seemed like the perfect pairing. If I was to give it a rating - I would probably give it a 90 (sometimes the smoke ring system does not do justice if I did the smoke rings it would be 4.5 to 5. Obviously I loved this cigar - can't wait to smoke it with some more rest on it.

Unfortunately the price tag will mean that I won't be buying boxes of these - but I will definitely be getting some more of these.
