Default Flores y Rodriguez Cabinet Seleccion Maduro Mini Review

I was inspired to do this review after being blown away by this budget friendly smoke
originally purchased 3 10-count boxes of these back in march for a bid of around $30 each
I intended them to be a cheap yard gar for the summer as I have a lot of outdoor projects planned

This looks to be a Dominican puro? from what I can find online

Dimensions: 6.5 x 54 Super Toro
Wrapper color: Cocoa Brown
Wrapper feel: Oily and Toothy
Construction: Firm even pack minimal veins and a nice big double cap
Burn: A little wonky and the start but no touch ups needed
Str/body: medium/medium

Special notes: This thing billows smoke like the DE Liga Privada lines so small smoking spaces might not be the best

Although not overly complex this cigar was a flavor bomb and never hit a sour note
the first half was sweet hay/cream with a long malty finish the second half was toast, cedar and the same sweet cream a dessert stick for sure.
The aroma was like an aromatic vanilla pipe blend that even my wife was ok with Scoop these up!!!

Back when the Gran Habano lines were being pushed, I tried a few of them and thought they were not that great. But I have smoked a few of these (in a different size) and found them to be pretty damn good. Thanks for the review.
