Today I review the double maduro cigar from Saint Luis Rey. This beautiful cigar is their No. 6, which measure 6 x 60. The wrapper and binder are both the Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro and the filler is nicaraguan. The term double maduro comes from the wrapper and binder being a maduro tobacco. This cigar reminded me of a La Gloria Cubano Serie R and I expected the flavor to be similiar to that. I was wrong. I had expected some nice cocoa and coffee flavors from the two maduro tobaccos but this cigar produced very little flavor. I was quite disappointed with my experience. This is the first one of these I have ever had and it may be my last. Check out my review for more information.
7/19/2007 UPDATE: I spoke with our local Altadis rep and he confirmed my experience with this cigar. He had 3 different ones from 3 different boxes and some one had no flavor, one had good flavor and one was so bitter that after 5 minutes he quit smoking it. It would seem that they are having some issues with them.
