Default Omar Ortez Original Maduro







From the information I was able to find on this stick... These sticks are packaged in unique wooden boxes. These are certain to satisfy the lover of fuller-bodied cigars, these “puros” are handmade in Nicaragua with ultra rich Nicaraguan wrapper, binder and long filler tobaccos.

Wrapper: Nicaraguan
Binder: Nicaraguan
Filler: Nicaraguan
Size: 5X54 (Robusto Grande)
Price: Box of 60 for $ 160 / $ 2.67 a stick OH YEAH!!

This stick was dark chocolate brown in appearance with moderate veins. Pre-draw flavor was caramel, right up front and hit me right away. Had an excellent draw and it burned evenly all the way to the end.

1st Third: Detected caramel and a sweet woodsy taste, very enjoyable.

2nd Third: At about the half way point the caramel is still present with a hint of leather and milk chocolate. I'm digging this stick!!

3rd Third: The final third stayed consistent with caramel and leather. Might have found me a new "go to" stick.

This stick was full bodied in flavor, but mild to medium in strength. Can only imagine these will be awesome with a little time on them. Would I buy this stick? HELL YES!! Seeing how I picked up a box, looking forward to enjoying more of these. Will be putting these into my regular rotation.

Nice review, Mac. They look yummy, but are they supposed to be an Edge knockoff?

Not sure Jeff...the Original Natty I had a few months back didn't have a band. Must be something new they are doing. Gotta love those marketing folks.

Doggone it, another one to try.

As MJ said, I have had some of the natural Omar Ortez cigars, in the robusto and torpedo size. Usually an excellent Nicaraguan stick, fairly full-bodied, with some spice and earthiness to them.

As these are not black wrappered maduros, I may have to try some out.

Thanks for the review.

Nice review Mac. These are a great under rated cigar. I love the natural. Going to get my hands on some maddies today. There was a point when i was getting 5ers of the nats for $10-15 on c-bid with boxes of 60 going for around $100. The price has since gone up a bit.

After reading this i had to try one. Just finished torching a maduro torpedo O.O.O. All i can say is its a great smoke and at the $3.50 i paid for it , it was a steal. I will be getting some more as soon as i can. Oh and thanks Mac as if i wasnt blowing enough money with the wedding coming up fast.
