A Review Of The Cubanacan Soneros Maduro CigarThe Cubanacan Soneros Maduro cigar is one of the few lines that the company is focusing on as it continues to expand its outreach in the U.S. and beyond. Like many tobacco producers, it is a vertically integrated business, with a number of planting fields in Nicaragua and its own factory headquartered in Esteli. As for this blend, it’s named after the family in charge of the company, one that has been in tobacco since the beginning of the 19th century. For a smoke infused with so much history, it has to be a good one, and it rises to the occasion.

An Ecuadorian Habano Maduro adorns the stick and is finished with an Ecuadorian binder and fillers from Nicaragua. The Cubanacan Soneros Maduro cigar is available in four vitolas, including a Gran Robusto (5 1/2 x 60), a Corona Gorda (5 5/8 x 46), a Petite Sublime (5 x 3/4 x 54) and a Toro (6 x 52). It’s a dark brown stick, the color of dark roasted coffee, and has several spots that are even darker. It is laced with a number of small veins, though the seams are hidden well. The red and black band has a classic look to it, finished with stamped gold and featuring sharp, elegant lettering.

The cold draw is said to offer floral, cedar and sweet cherry notes, and is slightly spicy along with the sweetness. Once it is lit up, the stogie starts off with a punchy combination of black pepper, cedar, cherry, and wood flavors. The cherry and cedar are similar to the notes tasted on the cold draw, and are a bit spicy. This mix of flavors holds true through the initial third, with the cedar offering both spicy and sweet tones, and the cherry infusing most of the sweetness in the profile. The pepper flavor is intense at first, but soon moves to the retrohale and brings some heat on the finish.

During the middle third of the Cubanacan Soneros Maduro cigar, the cherry and cedar flavors shift to the background, while the wood note takes control of the profile. Close to the halfway mark, a cedar flavor emerges and joins the wood flavor up front. There is still a lot of sweetness and spiciness coming from the background flavors, producing a nice balance with the primary notes.

In the final third of the smoke, the flavors remain mostly the same, thought the wood note grows in intensity even further. At its climax, it gives the stick a dry quality that creates excellent contrast with the sweet and spicy layers present in the mix.

The Cubanacan Soneros Maduro cigar is a beautifully balanced stick, offering a perfect, down the middle body that is paired with immaculate construction. That makes for an unforgettable experience and a stick worthy of carrying the family name.
