I really enjoyed the Reserva Miraflor by Guillen Cigars and I had high expectations for their second regular production blend, the Goviado. This 5 x 50 robusto is a Nicaraguan puro and it met up with the expectations.
The wrapper is nice and silky with just a few minor veins and the color is quite light. The cigar has a full barnyard aroma and a fine predraw. After lighting I can taste a peppery toast that leaves a dry feeling in my mouth. Soon I discover some chocolate on the background. I can also taste a slight leather flavor while the toast is disappearing. After about ½ an inch, the flavors become warm and they get an undertone of earthy flavors.
After an inch the toast returns with some chocolate on the background. Some puffs later I also get some wood and once I reach the mid of the cigar some nuts accompany the wood. The nut flavor grows in strength as closer I get to the end. I nubbed this cigar.
I get lots of thin smoke from this cigar, first the smoke is a bit brownish, but it turns bluish later on. The ash is medium dark and firm. The draw and burn are great. This is a full flavored, full bodied cigar that caused a bit of vitamin N overdose.
Would I buy this cigar again? Hell yeah!
