Cigar Review: Brickhouse Maduro

Maduro, maduro why art thou so damn tasty!?

I have tried Brickhouse before and liked them for the most part but I saw this Maduro at my local shop and just had to try it.

The cigar is a fat, thick and oily stick. Doesn't that sound appealing? Yikes. Anyway this cigar lit easy and smelled nice and earthy, like a good Maduro should.

It was surprisingly tasty, smoother than I expected and had a very clean after taste. It had a little caramely sweet flavor in there too. The earthy tastes of a Maduro just weren't there, but still very tasty. This medium bodied cigar was balanced and very pleasurable. I literally smoked every bit of this guy. I did encounter a weird issue with the construction though. It actually cracked as the cigar burnt down. The extra heat found a weak spot in the wrapper. Not good but it didn't really affect the smoke.

I like the Brickhouse Maduro better than the other Brickhouse I tried. It was savory, sweet, and rich. If it wasn't for the splitting wrapper I would say this is one of the best cigars I have had in months. But...

I give this cigar a 7 of 10. Silly wrapper, splitting is for kids.

Questions for YOU: Have you ever had a cigar split its wrapper?
