Review - Cusano 18 Paired Maduro Churchill - 90/100

The Cusano 18 Paired Maduro Churchill also lives up to its name. From its 3 18-year-old wrapper leafs two are maduros. The appearance is very dark and very oily. The cold aroma is very earthy with the deep scent of the maduro tobacco leaves.

This medium bodied cigar is quite easy going with its great strong flavor of sweet tobacco and quite obvious taste of a dark, strong italian espresso. The finish is cedary with hints of black pepper. The over all profile is well balanced with rich and delicious character.

As, said, the wrapper is dark and oily, but has some larger veins to stand in the way of being absolutely beautiful. Rolling is again done perfectly and the structure is great. The draw is somewhat too easy and the burn is a little off, but nothing to affect too greatly to the overall experience.

The rich smoke and the aroma floating around you are really pleasant being a combination of dark roasted coffee and sweet tobacco. I really enjoy this kind of a cigar after a good dinner, as long as you have an hour or more to use on this huge cigar...

I recommend you add this cigar to your collection as soon as possible, for example from Paul Bugge with an affordable price.
