Today brings us the El Titan de Bronze Titan Redemption Maduro in a 5x50 Robusto vitola. El Titan de Bronze Cigar Mfg group has been around for quite some time now, est 1995. They are located down in FL at the famous Calle Ocho factory and employ only the best rollers. The El Titan de Bronze Maduro Redemption features a Mexican San Andreas Maduro wrapper with it's binder and fillers coming from Nicaragua. Today I'll be featuring a review from my buddy Matt over at Kuzi's Cigar Catalog, http://kuziscigarcatalog.wordpress.com/2012/02/02/el-titan-de-bronze-titan-redemption-maduro/, and he says:
"A light with a soft flame brings on a dark chocolate flavor with a bitter coffee aftertaste. Through the nose I get a bit of a wood note. There is the Nicaraguan texture/flavor combo on the finish. It is a spicy, woody mix. There is a ton of smoke coming off of the foot but due to the tight draw I feel that the amount that can be drawn into the mouth is limited. As the cigar settles in, a few more spicy notes come out and the bitterness dissipates. The wood flavor through the nose is strong but only through the nose.
The middle third is not that much different than the end of the first third. There may be a touch of musk through the nose as well but nothing outstandingly different. The draw has yet to open up. The burn is great. As the middle third continues on a subtle sweetness develops. This is how the middle third stays.
The final third starts to transition to a toastier version of the cigar. Close to the end the spice picks up slightly."
Chose this to feature today as I wanted to help spread the word about his fantastic blog site. Keep up the great work brother and thanks for letting me use your great review!
