Bucanero Full Sail Maduro Box Pressed Toro Review
This cigar given to me by Bucanero features a very dark, close to black, maduro wrapper with only very small veins.
It is packed very evenly and does not have any hard or soft spots. I chose a punch and it really has a great draw when punched.
It has a very pungent barnyard smell from the well aged leaf. It tastes very spicy when I am puffing on it before lighting.
I lit it up and found that it has really thick oily smoke – really pungent. It is medium in body. The first third had a very earthy core flavor with some bitter coffee and a hint of sweetness (maybe brown sugar) on the finish.
The second third increased to medium-full body. It continued to have primarily earthy flavors and almond with some black pepper creeping into the lingering sweet, buttery finish. This reminded me of the taste of Nutella.
The final third started with a burn correction – the burn was nice after the correction. It was quite full bodied, especially by the time it got down to the nub. Lots of pepper with a deep coffee core and almond. There was no more sweetness in this third, the finish spicy and slightly bitter.
The Full Sail was a nice peppery maduro that started out earthy and sweet, then ended spicy and full bodied. It produced a lot of smoke – this made it really enjoyable. The construction was decent with a great draw and 1 burn correction. This is not a unique maduro, but you can tell that the tobacco was well aged and well rolled. These factors add up to the Bucanero Full Sail being an excellent budget maduro!
Flavor and Taste: 16/20
Would I buy a Box: 5/5
