    Background Info

    Size does matter; the bigger the better. It’s a fact and the Chubbys are proving it. This is one of the first 60 ring gauge cigars. We’ve been making it since 1995. The Chubby Maduro is a full bodied smoke, with a dark and shiny Dominican Maduro Special (DMS) wrapper developed by us. The Chubby Natural is absolutely gold, both in color and in the distinctive mild taste.

    Mission Notes

    Beautiful day outside, perfect for a smoke. Unfortunately, I have a lot of errands to run, so there is only one solution. Smoke on the road. I pick out a beautiful Torpedo and immediately members of my family begin begging for some too. Briefly I consider delving into my traveldor in search of White Owls, but realize I haven’t allowed something like that into my case in ages. Grudgingly I hand out three of my precious sticks and begin my preparation.

    The smell of this cigar is amazing, there’s something earthy, dark, and oily in the smell. The wrapper is a gorgeous shiny dark brown, bordering on black, with just hints of redness. The cigar itself is very firm, almost seeming too tight. I snip the end and do a test draw. Absolutely perfect, no blockage of any kind. I light the cigar and get just a touch of bitterness, that quickly passes as the burn moves on. The cigar produces huge clouds of smoke, with a woodsmoke smell. The taste of the cigar itself is a slight bit peppery, with tastes of cedar and hickory. The burn is even a the ash is a very clean light gray. I continue on enjoying this cigar, the taste profile doesn’t really seem to change at all, staying very consistent, with only variations in it’s spice levels. Do not light up one of these sticks if you are looking for a quick smoke. I am known to smoke my cigars too quickly, and this still lasted me two hours easy. When I had about two inches remaining the wrapper began to peel and unroll. This is the only problem I encountered with this cigar, at least until I was done.

    Final Notes

    After putting the cigar out I ran into my second problem. I was extremely dizzy, and felt more than a touch queasy. The last time I felt a cigar this strongly was one time that I had a La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero on an empty stomach. There should be a warning label on this stick. Do not approach if you have not fortified yourself with a heavy meal. I had a full meal and it still proceeded to beat me up and take my lunch money. By no means do I want you to avoid this cigar, in fact I highly recommend it. You should just be aware this is not a beginner’s cigar, it is for someone who has developed a taste for stronger sticks. If you like LFD’s and similar sticks, this should be on your must have list.

    Agent 86 out. I have a couple of these beauty’s left that I can actually age this time. I would like to say I’m going to revisit these in a year, but I’m pretty sure I’ll have to have another one within the next two months.

    Update: I was informed by Cuban Stock that I forgot to mention how smooth this cigar is. I actually agree with them, that is an important piece of info. There is no harshness at all to this cigar, it is very smooth, which makes the power of this smoke that much more surprising.
