Siglo IV Limited Reserve Maduro Review
Siglo IV Limited Reserve Maduro - 5 X 54. Wrapper - Mexico (San Andres Morron), Binder - Nicaraguan, Filler - Nicaraguan & Dominican. Just to the right side of Medium. Initial taste of sweet, leathery tobacco which evolves into a sweet dark coffee taste with a hint of spice. At the halfway point, the leather returns and the sweetness picks up a bit. The last third of the cigar is predominatley sweet leather. A nice long finish of sweet leather. Very enjoyable cigar. I am a big fan of the Mexican maduro wrapper and on this cigar, it doesn't disappoint. Construction, burn and draw was perfect but as is often the case with the San Andres wrapper, it is very fragile. Very well balanced. I recommend trying this cigar.
