Ortega Serie D Maduro Cigars For Sale OnlineRenowned cigar maker Eddie Ortega is taking the cigar world by storm with Ortega Serie D Maduro cigars. Released in spring 2012, this smoke has won the hearts of aficionados everywhere, with its smooth flavor, savory aroma and eye-catching appearance.



The line of Ortega Serie D Maduro cigars was Ortega’s first solo venture after he relinquished his share of a partnership in EO Brands (also known as United Tobacco).  Already well established in the industry and known for creating the highly acclaimed 601s and Cubaos, the production and distribution of Ortega Serie D Maduro cigars began small and by a limited number of retailers, with a choice of five sizes. Due to popular demand, the line quickly expanded and today includes two additional vitolas for a well-rounded offering of seven sizes in total.

#7 – 5 ½ x 46

#8 -- 5 x 50

#9 – 6 ½ x38

#10 – 6 x 52 Belicoso

#12 – 5 ½ x 52

#20 – 6 x 60



These stogies are described as medium to full-bodied, and are handmade at Don Pepin’s My Father factory in Esteli, Nicaragua. Tightly packed with local long fillers and binders from the Esteli and Jalapa regions, they are wrapped in San Andres Mexican Maduro. Each size also features a “natural” version, boasting Ecuador Habana wrapper.



Reviewers say the Maduros look like a chocolate bar, thanks to the near-black wrapper and the box pressing, which gives them a slightly squared-off appearance. Living up to their dark looks, these stogies are said to unleash a rich, hearty chocolate flavor as well.



It seems that reviewers find it difficult to find fault with the Ortega Serie D Maduro cigars
. Blog after blog applauds the stogies’ smoothness from beginning to end, with comments on a practically perfect draw and reviewers marveling at the complex flavors.  



PRE-LIGHT: Described as slightly oily and speckled with some very fine lines, the wrapper is said to give off a pleasant aroma of cocoa, earth, pepper and spice. Smokers say the cold draw is wonderfully flavorful.



FIRST THIRD: On light-up, many reviewers detect strong notes of black pepper, mingled with spice and underlined by wood flavors. The ash is said to hold firm and the burn line is even. As for strength, smokers say the first third comes in at a medium full level.



SECOND THIRD: Halfway through, the chocolate notes of the Ortega Serie D cigars are said to develop further, suffused still by pleasing spice and wood notes, along with espresso flavors. The smoke remains constant at medium full strength, reviewers say.



FINAL THIRD: With the coffee notes moving somewhat to the forefront, wood and spice continue to linger in the background. The finish is said to produce a sweet raisin flavor.



Throughout the smoking experience, the ash reportedly holds firm in a nice stack and keeps its dark charcoal coloring, enhanced by interesting “zebra” stripes. Its medium full flavor is said to last for the length of the smoke, and the flavor profile features subtle differences without crass or overpowering changes.



From construction, to presentation, to flavor profile, this stogie is clearly a winner in the eyes of many seasoned aficionados
