Moreno Maduro is a smooth, spicy-sweet jet black maduro. If you enjoy Maduros, this one’s a beauty, with a handsome Connecticut broadleaf wrapper that’s been naturally cured to achieve it’s dark color and moist, rich flavor, but with a lighter mild to medium-bodied taste. Hand-rolled in the Dominican Republic. SMOKE Magazine says: “The majority of the panel enjoyed good light-bodied flavor dominated by a creamy sweetness.”
