Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro
Filler: Nicaragua, Honduras, Peru, and the Dominican Republic
Binder: Brazilian Maduro
Price: $96.95 (20)
Pre-light: Hefty, firm, slightly toothy dark wrapper. Good looking black and silver double band bridged together. Robust tobacco aroma. Spicy taste to the wrapper.
The burn: Never even, but never a problem. I let it rest quite a bit and didn’t have to relight or touch up.
The taste: Licorice, chocolate, a mite of leather and cedar in the background. A consistent touch of spice for the length of the cigar.
Over all: This one sat in the humi for some time…forgot that I had it put back. This is the first one MX2 that I didn’t have draw problems with, the rest did it well too in smoothing and marrying the flavors.

Here is another cigar from the Olor Del Cibao line from texcigars.com. You might remember my review of the Double Shade Presidente I did a couple weeks ago. This is a line of cigars that has just recently been released to the U.S. market.
Here is what Tex has to say about this cigar:
The Olor Del Cibao Churchills Cigars are 100% hand made, Long-Filler, “Cuban Seed” Wrapper Cigars straight from the Dominican Republic. These cigars are exactly what you’re looking for in a Churchill cigar and for the price it cannot be beat. Again, the wrapper is “cuban seed” and if you’re used to smoking cuban cigars or if you’re looking for a cigar that is as close to cuban as we can get the US legally than this is the flavor you’re looking for. The cigars come in a cedar box that is hand-made and of great quality. The first thing you will notice when you get these in is how tightly the box fits together and locks up. This is sure to preserve your cigars well. Beautiful box, beautiful cigars, and fantastic taste! Give these a try, you won’t be disappointed.
Manufacturer: Tabaccars corp.
Wrapper: Cuban Seed
Package: Box of 25
Size: 50 x 7″
Price: $84.99 (Buy Now)
Pre-light: This cigar has a nice wrapper that is a little bumpy and has one medium sized vein running through it. The cap is a nice size, I did not notice any soft spots. No issue with the cut. The predraw was easy and has a grass taste to it.
The Burn: Not as good as the Double Shade Presidente but not bad. I would rate the burn a 7.5 because when it did go off it always corrected itself . The ash lasted about an inch, like the other not the longest ash. It also flaked at points but for the most part stayed in tact. The draw was effortless throughout with tons of smoke to fill the room.
The Taste: This smoke holds some nice flavors, some I can not pick out. It started with creamy and mellow and turned nutty towards the middle. The last third had leather and a little spice. Never got hot or harsh on me at all.
Over All: A good mild smoke, for $3.40 a stick it is a very good smoke. A mellow smoke that you can smoke any time of the day. If you don’t want to pull the trigger on a box of these Tex has a great deal on a Olor Del Cibao sampler. One of each style for $9.99.
