Eiroa CBT Maduro – Appearance
I smoked the robusto for this review. The CBT Maduro has a dark brown colored wrapper which reminds me of espresso. There is some oil on the surface, but not much. Veins are visable, but not overly so. The band is red, black, and silver.
Eiroa CBT Maduro – Pre-light
I used a straight cut for this review. The pre-light draw offered coffee, floral, and slight chocolate notes.
Eiroa CBT Maduro – First Third
At the first puff, notes of earth and spice come through along with background sweetness. There is no doubt you’re smoking a maduro with every puff. Towards the end of the first third, the profile changed to sweet cream, earth, and mild cocoa. Very thick, creamy smoke.
Eiroa CBT Maduro – Second Third
The second third continued along the same flavor profile. I was getting a sweet and spicy profile with notes of earth, some cedar, and coffee. The earth and cedar intensified in this third as I went along.
Eiroa CBT Maduro – Final Third
There was little change in the profile towards the end. Earth, cedar, sweet and spicy notes remained.
Eiroa CBT Maduro – Final Thoughts
The burn on this cigar only required fixing one time – after that it was dead on. The draw was tigher than I like, but not so tight that nothing came through. There is no doubt that while smoking this cigar you are in fact smoking a maduro. The strength of this cigar is on the higher end of medium to full. Overall, this is a very good cigar from construction to burn. It is definitely becoming a favorite of mine and it is box purchase worthy in my box.
