murcielagobelicoso1 Welcome back everyone to another edition of Puff reviews. Today we have two cigars on the menu: the Murcielago Belicoso and the Quesada Serie Limitada 35th Anniversary. One was great while another failed to live up to expectations. Want to know which is worth a buy? Keep reading to find out!

Murcielago Belicoso

Murcielago cigars are produced by EO Brands. Just recently, EO joined teams with the popular brand known as Rocky Patel Cigars in a merger. Murcielago is the Spanish term for bat, in case you were wondering. You may have seen the term before with the ultra-sexy Lamborghini Murcielago. Seems like an odd name for a cigar, but perhaps it was given the name due to its very dark wrapper. Either way, it is something different, which could spark some interest from those who never heard of the cigar before.

The Murcielago Belicoso measures 5.5 x 52. Other sizes are offered as well: the 4 1/8x 50 Rothschild, the 5 1/4x 50 Robusto, the 6 1/8x 50 Toro, and the 7 x 48 Churchill. The Belicoso has a filler of Nicaraguan tobacco. The binder is Mexican, and a Mexican San Andres Maduro wrapper completes the cigar. The Murcielago is considered to be medium to full-bodied and it is box-pressed. The cigar is manufactured in Nicaragua.

Like the animal it is named after, the Murcielago Belicoso is quite dark. The cigar also has an oily sheen that can be seen under light and a square shape due to being box-pressed. Only a few small veins dot its body, and it has little give when touched. The decorative band near the head of the cigar has somewhat of an intimidating look to it. It's large with a red and gold background and is dominated by a black bat in the center. The makers of the cigar, Espinosa and Ortega have their names on the band in addition to the cigars Murcielago moniker. Before lighting, the Belicoso has a cold taste that hints of chocolate and it also has an earthy scent.

Once in action, the Murcielago Belicoso performs well. There is little to complain about in the burn department. The ash is solid and white in color. The draw is decent. The burn stays even on its own and does not require any touch-ups. Re-lighting is also not necessary.
