Casa Magna Oscuro Cigar Review

January 26, 2011 · Posted in Cigar Review, Short Cigar Review 

I like the Casa Magna Colorado. It’s a very good cigar.

Full disclosure: I received this cigar from Cigars Direct. All reviews are my own.

Wrapper: Honduras | Binder: Honduras | Filler: Honduras & Nicaragua

Vitola: Toro – 6″x52 | Price: App. $33.oo/5 pack

0/3: Good looking cigar. Very dark wrapper. Feels dry to the touch.

1/3: Bitter chocolate and dry wood. It’s starting out a little interesting. Not quite sure if it’s a good or a bad “interesting” yet. Can already tell that I’m not liking it as much as I liked the Casa Magna Colorado. The Oscuro seems like it may lapse into being harsh over the course of the cigar.

Also am getting some grassy notes during this third.

2/3: Retains a lot of that bitter chocolate flavor. There is also some graham cracker apparent during this third. This is the third where it begins to become a little too harsh for me. The flavors are okay but nothing spectacular.

3/3: Getting a little too bitter at this point and it has its spots of harshness. It’s a medium bodied cigar with a good draw and burn.

4/3: While this cigar does have its moments where it is good I’m afraid to say that for the majority of the time it under performs. Too bad, really, because I had such high hopes for it.

2.5 points – Prove me wrong, get this sampler to try the Casa Magna Oscuro.
