A Cigar With a "WOW" Factor!, 10th Apr 2017
Reviewer: The Cigar Authority
The cold draw of the Serino Royale Maduro XX serves up notes of raisins and brown sugar. There is an oatmeal like flavor profile that is quite enjoyable. The aroma off the foot of the cigar which has some nice dark tobacco in the center has an abundance of raisins.
Once the cigar is lit, there are notes of licorice and a heavy wood such as oak. As the cigar progresses the oak notes begin to take hold as the dominant flavor profile with a hint of salt and a touch of cocoa. On the retrohale there are some subtle spices that prolong the finish.
Moving on to the second third of the cigar, the salty notes become dominant as oak moves to the background and on the aroma. Around the half way point the profile becomes earthy with a leather finish that is joined by wood and spice on the retorohale. There is a slight red pepper component to the finish.
The last third sees the hearty wood notes return in force with some peanuts thrown in for good measure. There is a lot going on as the cigar comes to a leathery finish with hints of caramel, nuts, oak, earth and a touch of cocoa.
