macanudo_maduro1 Welcome back to another edition of cigar reviews here on Puff.com. Today’s theme focuses on the popular Macanudo brand, and we will look at the Macanudo Maduro and the Macanudo Gold Label to see what they bring to the table in terms of appearance, burn, and flavor.

Macanudo Maduro Hyde Park

Macanudo markets its Maduro line as being smooth yet rich at the same time. That sounds like a solid combination to me, so it is time to light up one of the line’s Hyde Park selections to see if it is as good as advertised.

The Macanudo Maduro Hyde Park measures 5 ½ x 49. The line also comes in the following sizes: the 4 3/16 x 32 Ascot, 4 ½ x 60 Diplomat, 5 12 x 42 Hampton Court, 5 ½ x 42 Duke of Devon, 5 ½ x 50 Crystal, 6 x 60 Gigante, 6 ½ x 42 Baron de Rothschild, and the 7 ½ x 49 Prince Philip. The cigar’s filler is a mix of Dominican Piloto Cubano and Mexican tobaccos, while the binder is Mexican San Andrean. Topping things off is a Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper. The Macanudo Maduro is listed as being medium-bodied in strength.

The first thing I notice when taking a look at the Maduro Hyde Park is its very dark wrapper. It has a rich color and is quite oily. Only a few veins are visible. The band near the head displays the Macanudo Maduro label over a black, beige, and brown color scheme that offers a nice contrast to the dark wrapper. The construction is superb and free of any significant defects. The cigar feels very firm to the touch and is free of soft spots. Right before lighting, I notice a sweet cold taste and a spicy aroma.

The solid construction and appearance of the Macanudo Maduro translates into a satisfactory burn. The draw is just right. The ash is light gray in color and solid in its form. The burn is even from start to finish and requires no touch-ups whatsoever. Re-lights are unnecessary as well, and the cigar burns slowly with thick smoke.
