Purchase Aging Room Maduro Major Cigars OnlineOliveros, also known as Boutique Blends Cigar Co., create the Aging Room Maduro. Described as “a spiritual experience” by company president Rafael Nodal, it was premiered in Las Vegas during the 2013 IPCPR trade show. The blend of Dominican Habano and Nicaraguan tobacco is aged for 5 years offering a medium to full bodied strength.

When was it released?

Release date was from July to August 2013. The cigar is available in five vitolas: the Alto (7 x 47), Major (6.5 x 60), Mezzo, (6 x 54), Rondo (5 x 50), and the Presto (4.5 x 48). Each size is available in boxes of 20, packs of 5, or singles. Interestingly, the back of the band is filled with useful information for the smoker.

What is the initial reaction?

Reviewers have said that the Rondo has a nice oily feel to it, but lacks any heavy sheen. There is moderate veining in the Nicaraguan wrapper, and the medium brown coloration is uniform. The lack of soft or dense spots adds to the appearance. However, it is well wrapped and virtually seamless. The cold draw carries a light barnyard aroma, with the foot more akin to sweet hay.

How is the first-third?

Aging Room Maduro cigars light evenly with only slight resistance. Initially, there is an abundance of spicy smoke, but it quickly mellows to a respectable amount of smoke. There is a heavy spice flavor, at first. However, it is quite pleasant. The undertone is almost caramel-esque complimenting the spice nicely. The end of the first-third finds the spiciness ebbing, and a woodsy flavor is detected.

Does the second-third continue this pace?

The smooth transition switches the cedar flavor to the forefront, and the spice takes a backseat. Midsection is brighter than the first-third with a strong note of a woodsy blend highlighted with cedar. The construction is noticeably flawless with a steady, even burn line. Commentators note that there isn’t any need to relight the stogie. The ash hangs on for almost two inches before falling, so it is nicely controllable.

How does the final stretch add up?

The spice flavor really falls into the background in the final third. A sweet cedar takes the dominant role with the caramel flavor highlighting the cedar. Reviewers state the final third is mellower than the rest of the cigar ending at a medium strength. At the very end, the sweetness picked up a bit adding a nice conclusion. It is important to note the construction is holding strong as well.

Any special notes on the tobacco blend?

The Dominican binder and filler tobaccos blend exceptionally well. The Aging Room Maduro tobacco is aged nicely, so the flavors are mature. The Nicaraguan wrapper adds a nice mixture of sweetness and spice. As mentioned previously, the construction is flawless.

Enjoying a good cigar is an experience to be appreciated. It is over an hour of enjoyment when partaken with a simple glass of water. If you want a stogie that really stands up to the hype, you will really appreciate this one.
