With the Holiday Season just passing into the rear view I figured I’d wrap the festivities with a Hemingway Maduro Classic. The Hemingway Maduros always make an appearance on tobacconists shelves every year around the Holidays. The particular cigars for this review are from the 2008 run. The Classic seems to be one of the harder to find vitolas of the Hemingway Maduros. At least I rarely ever see them. More common at the shops in my area are the Signature Maduros and Works of Art Maduros. Even the Hemingway Between the Lines seem to be more common around here than the Classic Maduro.
I smoked two of these cigars for this review because I wanted to see if what I thought of the first one I smoked would remain consistent with another sample. The second cigar was identical to the first. The Classic Maduro has a dark leathery wrapper. Construction is impeccable, the burn perfect and it produces a ton of thick white smoke. It is a decently complex smoke with a heady aroma. The flavors are well balanced and defined. Rich creamy notes complimented by leather and a musty earthiness and a slight maduro sweetness. The only thing I can say that is markedly different about this cigar is that the larger size makes for a longer smoke. I always enjoy these cigars whenever I smoke them, but I feel the flavor profile is particularly well suited to the cold weather of the season. A cozy spot in a comfortable chair with a nice hot cup of coffee or even a hot chocolate makes for a great smoking experience with this cigar.
