Pedro M Cigars are well-balanced medium-bodied sticks.Pedro Martin M cigars were released in 2011 shortly after the company, Pedro Martin Cigars, was founded by the great blender’s daughter, Maria. Formerly the national sales manager at Camacho, she is now taking up the family business and several of her father’s blends.This stick is part of the Platinum Series, and each of the three products in the line features a different wrapper. The “M” in the name can stand for a few things – for “medium,” “Maduro” or “Mexican.”


This stick comes with a Mexican Maduro wrapper, one of the more popular choices out there. Like other sticks the company produces, Pedro Martin M cigars are rolled with a Nicaraguan binder and filler blend.  The similarity continues as this stogie is also available in an assortment of vitolas. These sizes include Pequeno (4 1/2 x 40), Robusto (5 x 50), Toro (6 x 52), Torpedo (6 1/4 x 52), Churchill (7 x 48), Lancero (7 1/4 x 38) and Goliath (7 x 70).


San Andreas tobacco, long respected for its Maduro, is responsible for the wrapper on this stick. It is a dark chocolate brown with a few darker spots. It is slightly oily with some veins and seams apparent. The band is silver, gold and black, and displays the brand name in silver cursive. It is an ornamental band with a high quality look. Because of its precise construction, the smoke is packed tight and has good heft.


The first third of the Pedro Martin M cigars features leather and cherry flavors. Shortly after lighting, some chocolate notes also surface along with baker’s spice. Through the initial third, the chocolate notes get stronger and become the dominant taste.


Cherry, spice and leather are present in the background. During the second third, the chocolate eases up and balances with the cherry and baker’s spice. The leather quickly disappears and the stick decreases in sweetness. In the last third of the stick, the chocolate and baker’s spice take turns assuming the dominant role while the cherry fades. Most reviewers found the finish to be spicy, but pleasant. The nub is cool and a little soft.


Most aficionados feel that this stick is a good example of a classic Maduro cigar. Pedro Martin M cigars are right down the middle in terms of strength and are also medium-bodied. The body plays down a little because the flavors are well balanced, but reviewers still felt like the complexity was enough to keep things interesting.

The only sticking point with the Pedro Martin M cigars is that some aficionados believed the draw was a little tight. While this didn’t impact the overall experience, the burn required slightly more attention as a result.


The ash is light grey in color and holds on for around an inch and a half before letting go. Overall, reviewers appreciated the balance of flavors and the strong quality of the stick’s tobaccos. This stogie is a good choice for novices that want to step up to something more powerful but still easy to handle. Its sweet profile makes it an ideal pick for after dinner, also.
