Review - Arganese Maduro Chairman Churchill - 90/100

The Churchill sized Maduro Chairman is a great cigar. It offers all the same joys of smoking that its corona sized little brother does, but succeeds to be even better. Obviously the larger ring gauge and lenght offer more mellow and round flavors and aroma, as it burns cooler than the corona.

What comes to the flavors hidden in the smoke, this cigar starts with some burnt sugar and chocolate underlined with a woody aspect - subtle but distinct. As the cigar burns perfectly towards the second third, the flavors just jump out of it. chocolate and sugar stay onboard, but there are also hints of coffe and vanilla.

Towards the end of the cigar, the woody underlining rises up to become the leading part of the third act. All the previous aspects are there, but they now bundle up with a strong woody and earthy aftertaste. This cigar also has a great and lingering finish.

Arganese Maduro Chariman Churchill is a great mix of sweet and creamy flavors on a medium bodied package. Highly enjoyable smoke, which requires a good deal of time to be enjoyed fully.

These are great cigars and I suspect that they will keep getting rated higher and higher by Cigar Aficionado. Good review - very accurate to my opinion as well.
