No I haven't but I'm intrigued by them. Price point is a tad high though.

I haven't tried the SB Maduro yet, but I did smoke the Habano version. Some of my ramblings from my notes (copy and pasted from my files on my tablet):


----------------

Flawlessly rolled cigar no soft spots/hard lumps, almost perfect even wt distribution. Insane cap, inner dimple like cubans. Comp to a CoRo almost identical. Easy cut, cap came off clean, rest holds up. Draw not tight, not loose, about where should be for well bunched. Prelight has a slight musty tobacco flavor, no real other taste. Three matches to light, perfect easy draw.

Only water drink. starting falvors are full flav but light/delicate. Not spicy like some Hab wraps. First third, dry earth tobacco flav, picks up subtle hints of sweet and cream. About 1in in body rolls in oily smoke very thick. More sweet and cream, earth gone.

Half point spice picks up, smoking too fast, slow down, cherry getting big. 45 min so far, body up to aroudn med. Sub flavors, can't id, pretty good, like Honduran but not like. 2in left, hour and half in, smoking good, nothing chang but flavors creep in/out some. Ash holds good in car at 75mph solid inch before starts flake. Still lots smoke, thick chewy kind. good.

Down to nub, can't hold more. Final thoughts decent flav, rich, lots ofsmoke, nubs down burns dead even whule way, never hot or too spicy. Approx 2hr to smoke, would buy again but try smaller size than toro. Worth revisit.

----


All that was dictated to my tablet while I was on the road. The next day my truck had a pleasant leftover sweet smell, not at all like the burnt ashtray smell some cigars tend to leave.


I would definitely be willing to try the Maduro next, that Habano was worth all $9 I paid for it.
