Short writeup today as I am not feeling well at all. Hit me last night, hence why this review is up later than usual.
This cigar is the brainchild of Jim Robinson (owner of Leaf & Bean Company) and Oscar Valladares. They have now produced four varieties all in a toro size (6 x 50) which included connecticut, maduro, sumatra and corojo wrappers. All binders and fillers are Honduran. As you can tell from the picture, or video, this cigar is wrapped in a cigar leaf rather than cello. It is a unique idea and it seems to work very well, although I imagine it does add a bit to the price.
It seems we may have said the wrong price in the video as I have been seeing these for $9-$10 online unless pricing can be set by each retailer. Like I said, I was gifted these so I never saw the price myself.
This Leaf Maduro by Oscar was really great. Complexity throughout with a nice spice and uniqueness that kept me interested in what was coming next. I really hope to be able to try the other flavors and maybe one of these days make a trip west to Pittsburgh and hang out at Leaf & Bean.
I want to thank Jon Brown for joining me in another video. I think he did a good job so be nice to the kid.

Nice review. Like the way both reviewers interacted. Looking forward to more reviews from these two.
“A white pepper Baker’s chocolate cappuccino.”…. mmmm. That actually sounds good. I really like these group reviews; we also find the conversational style engaging. Nice to have more than one take on things in the same video. So hey – going outside the everyday, whether it be for cigars or for video reviews, is refreshing. Keep it up.
I’ve been hearing great things about these sticks. Thanks guys!
Absolutely loved the leaf Maduro! The leaf wrap really kept the cigar oily.
