    The Maria Mancini brand is over twenty years old. For the last couple of years, a limited edition is being released. We reviewed the Maria Mancini Limited Edition 2016 before. This time we take a look at the 6×52 Toro Lindo, the limited edition for 2017.The brand is made in an undisclosed factory in Honduras.

    The cigar has been blended by Philip Schuster. Schuster has been in tobacco for generations, they are one of the three remaining cigar manufacturers in Bünde, Germany. You can visit them and their factory during the Deutschen Cigarrentag.

    The review


This is not a good looking cigar. The cap is sloppy and of a different shade than the rest of the wrapper. The ring is dated and could use a redesign. The foot ring is bright and simple but does not match with the Maria Mancini ring. There is room for improvement in the looks department. The wrapper itself is oily and looks leathery. The construction feels good. The cigar has a medium-strong aroma of a barnyard, including some ammonia.

    The cold draw is fine with dry tobacco, raisin sweetness, and mild pepper flavor. After lighting the flavors of leather and mud show up. After a few puffs some green herbs, mushroom, grass and something metallic break through the leather and muddy flavors. Then some chocolate shows up, the pepper is getting stronger and there is a faint vanilla flavor. All underneath a thick, earthy cover though. The aftertaste is a bit ashy with red pepper. After an inch, the flavor turns to soil with spice and sugar water. After a third, the dominant flavor remains soil, but with green herbs and the flavor of a cheap store brand Nutella knock-off. Halfway that flavor is gone, the cigar is now back to soil with a little sweetness, pepper, and grass. The cigar remains peppery and earthy. Deep in the final third, pepper becomes dominant with that earthiness on the background. The final few puffs have a rich flavor of coffee beans and high quality extra dark chocolate.

    The sloppy cap came off right after the first puff. That created false draw so we had to remove the complete cap. After that, the draw was great. The burn and light colored, firm ash are fantastic too. This cigar is medium-full bodied, medium flavored.

    Strength: medium
    Flavor: medium-full
