CIGAR OF THE WEEK... CASA MIRANDA
CASA MIRANDA – MIAMI CIGAR & COMPANY
American made, this cigar comes from the El Titan de Bronze factory in Little Havana, Miami, Florida. Wrapper:
Firm construction with a slightly toothy wrapper that is soft to the touch.Prelight:
Rich Barnyard and hay with a soft nutty and caramel nuance.
On first impression there is quick black pepper spice when lit with smooth smoke, cedar wood, almond and a noticeable sweetness. The pepper spice quickly diminishes and organic leather and soft cedar takes over the foreground underpinned with a true tobacco taste and hint of honey sweetness.
Through the first third this cigar burns straight and the ash is firm and did not fall off. Casa Mirandi is A medium-bodied smoke, as the flavors meld and deepen there is an overall impression of sweetness with soft cedar wood, nuts and leather showing the predominate taste.
There is also a ground coffee tone with a nice lemon rind developing on the edges in the second third. The solid white ash lasted, with some care, through the second third of the smoke.
