Acid Toast Maduro Review

Wrapper: Nicaraguan
Filler: Nicaraguan
Price: $7.00 - $8.00

I am personally not a huge fan of flavored cigars, but this one caught my interest. When I first started smoking cigars several years ago, I was smoking the Connecticut Acids: Kuba Kuba, Wafe, ect. Then I started to branch out an all together forgot about the Acid lines. Then about a month ago, someone gave me a six-pack of these sticks, so I felt it was a good idea to do a review on this one.

The wrapper of this cigar is a very dark brown. The stick is very solid with minor soft spot, nothing to worry about,. The cigar smells very sweet, like the other Acid cigars. The smell of this cigar is reminiscent of sweet spices like nutmeg and cinnamon.

This first third of this cigar may quite possibly be the sweetest part of the cigar, mainly due to the infused wrapper. The cigar starts off very sweet on the lips as well. The very sweet spice combination was led by the sweet cinnamon flavor. There were also little hints of ginger coming through as well. Towards the end of the first third, there was a definite cherry flavor. The combination of the cherry and spices was very good.

Once the second third got under way, the majority of the spice died down and a new prominent flavor came out. And this is where I learned how the cigar was named, the prominent flavor was, well, toast. There were still little bits of cinnamon and sugar flavors coming through but nothing like they were in the first third. There was still a lingering cherry flavor of the palate.

The last third was very similar to the second third but the flavors came out a little bit more. The combination of the toast, cinnamon, sugar, and cherry was so powerful that I didn’t really want it to end. It was like the perfect desert cigar.

The ash of this cigar was simply amazing. It was very strong, and almost white. The ash held on past the half-way point of this stick. The aroma was very sweet just like the flavor of the cigar. And the smoke was very thick and creamy. The burn was pretty even all the way through. The finish was good but I couldn’t smoke it all the way down, because a bad storm rolled in fast and forced me to put it down to go inside.

I have to give this cigar a 7.5 out of 10 because it was actually a quite enjoyable "flavored" cigar.

Until next time,
