Anoranzas Maduro Gordo

A very classy cigar, if a little overpriced, where I bought it (for $12! Granted, the cigar store was a high class joint and I had a great time there. Check out Bo's Cigar Lounge in Long Beach, CA - I have tasted cigars as good as this one for less than half the price. Granted, it's a great cigar. This is not an everyday cigar. It is appropriate for special occasions, especially after supper in the evening, or any time you will be able to handle the high volume of smoke this cigar puts out. It's most definitely a full bodied cigar.

In terms of flavor in this cigar, I found it extremely enjoyable. Fruity, almost. It's a heavy cigar, so you've got that strong front of maduro cigar, but there's definitely something sweet and fruity in there. Look for it, tell me what you think.

There isn't a lot more I could add to this cigar. Straight up, it's a great cigar, a fine smoke. Enjoy.
