This is a gorgeous cigar. It has a dark, oily and soft wrapper. The wrapper seems to have some kind of tooth to it. This is a sexy stick. It is firm to the touch, an expertly made triple cap and a full and tight foot.
Before lighting up
At cold you are greeted with some crisp tobacco flavors which are very pleasant.
The draw is nice and easy and the burn stays straight.
The initial third starts with some chocolate flavors along with some cream, it’s smooth like milk chocolate without any bitterness of the cocoa. It is definitely a medium strength cigar. A zing of spices can be noticed but it never takes over the smoothness. The first third hangs on for some time with a little bitterness but remains very nice nevertheless.
You can feel the nicotine start to build in this third. This cigar is pretty consistent but it is showing long highlights of hay, cream and some ripe black cherry. They come and go slowly. The burn is straight and paced. There is no need to relight or touch up this one. The finish is getting longer as it smokes down.
We don’t think one would pick this as a first cigar of the day. It is pumping nicotine and the body is medium-medium full. The milk chocolate is gone and now we have some nice tobacco flavors mixed with some exotic spices, like the French Provençale mix you buy in fine spices stores. This is original but I can’t nub this one. It is giving me too much nicotine at this point.
In summary, overall the Magnum 48 is a good to great cigar. It is recommended to smoke it in the evening or as a second cigar as this will definitely make the mark. It has classic flavors to it even after only a few years of age. This will continue to age well.
