Cigar Review - Ave Maria Immaculata
Review by Luc Blanchard, Official MMC Reviewer (@mysticks35mm)
Ave Maria - Immaculata
Size: Belicoso 6 x 54
Wrapper – Ecuadorian Connecticut
Binder – Nicaraguan
Filler – Nicaraguan
This review is courtesy of the March (box 46) My Monthly Cigars box and immediately noticed this cigar’s visual presence. A thick Connecticut wrapper covers this belicoso, shows almost no veins and has a manila paper (paper grocery bag) feel/color. A very aromatic sweet hay is on the pre light nose as a straight cut delivers a medium draw.
Getting into the 2/3 and the strength is mild+. The creamy notes start to taper off as notes of toasted bread, that mineral value and pear skin mixes in with the consistent forward notes. The burn is exemplary and offers a dusty, medium gray ash on a super thick ash fringe. Into the 3/3 of this non typical Connecticut wrapped stick, we see some consistency with addition of some strength into medium with white pepper now joining in. The concluding portion of the experience is quite contrasting with the humble and creamy beginnings.
Now toasted in nature and combined with the white pepper, we see notes of cedar, toasted bread and a metallic mineral value in the finish. The nub sees more strength and finishes as a very non typical Connecticut indeed. Perfect construction leads to a perfect burn and a great experience. Recommended for the mild smoke that is looking for a stronger ending.
