Beginners Cigar Guide - Maduro Cigars You Need to Try

8th Feb 2021

Hi, and welcome to another episode of Mondays with Mardo. I'm Gerard, and today we're going to talk about five Maduro cigars that we picked up that you've got to try. But before I get going, I need you to click on that subscribe button, click on the bell to get notified every single week of Mondays with Mardo.

The notation that the darker the cigar, the stronger it is and if you're a beginner, you should not smoke it, well, that is not true. Today I have put together a sampler pack here, cigars that are Maduro, they're dark and color, but they range from mild, medium, to full body. And this is going to be available on and I'll get to that at the end of the video. So I put together a sampler pack here, and it is all Maduro. Now Maduro, if you look it up in a dictionary, and it translates to ripen, and what's really going on with Maduros is when the leaves of the tobacco, which primarily is used for a wrapper here, during the fermentation process when they're in pylons, they extend the time. And the more you extend the time on fermenting and aging to tobacco within a certain process, the color is going to get darker and darker and it's going to have more flavors.

Sometimes depending on the blend of the cigar, the Maduro can accentuate the cigars flavor, however, it can either make it very strong and spicy, or it can make it very sweet. And from my opinion, I think Maduro' s should be very, very sweet. But there's all sorts of different blenders, there's different palettes, so everybody's going to blend a cigar to whatever they feel they're artisanal insight tells them to do. So I'm going to go through this in no order whatsoever. Actually, let's stick to an order. What I'm going to go is I'm going to begin with the mild to medium, to full body. So right off the bat, we're going to start with the Jake Wyatt, Herbert Spencer. This is made in Dominican Republic, but the wrapper is a San Andres Maduro made in Mexico, the Vera Cruz region.

And this is going to be more of a mild to medium. It's going to be more of that very sweet flavor, very creamy, and a lot of chocolate hints. It's a fantastic cigar. And also right off the bat from the first draw, this cigar does not sting you, it does not have pepper. It's very creamy, very nice and soft on the palate. So there's that right there. That's the Jake Wyatt, Herbert Spencer Maduro in a toro size.

Second, we're going to go right into a Nicaraguan cigar. This is the RoMa Craft CroMagnon. This does have the Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro. And even though it's Nicaraguan, it can pack a bunch. But I think this is a more of a medium strength cigar and the binder comes from Cameroon, so it's giving it that little bit of sweetness. The anthropology that I have in my hand is my favorite size out of the entire CroMagnon lineup. So this cigar, from CroMagnon anthropology, Connecticut Broadleaf is a very, very good cigar. So that's that.

Next, we're going to go into Last Cowboy Maduro. This is the toro size, and the reason why I bring this up, this is also made in Dominican Republic with a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. We sell a lot, a lot of this cigar. It ranges about 8 to $9, it packs up punch of flavor. It can tend to go from medium to full body. I highly recommend that you do have a little bit of food in your stomach when you tried this cigar. So this is made by Sinistro. Again, the Last Cowboy toro Maduro. And one thing I do want to mention, it does have a bit of a Candela foot. Now the Candela foot is just something that is pleasing to the eye, it's catchy, it looks cool, but you also get a flavor of that sweetness from the Candela right off the bat so you get that flavor.

Next, we're going to move into another Nicaraguan cigar. This is probably one of the most popular Maduro's out there, is Liga Privada No. 9, which is Connecticut Broadleaf as well. This is made my Drew Estate. The Liga Privada No. 9 is the Maduro. Now the T52 is the Habano, so don't mistake those two. The No. 9 is what you want to go for if you want to try the Maduro of the Liga Privada. This is the booster size, and we'll also include it in this sample pack. Now this sampler pack is going to be five cigars, it's going to be $58, and we're just going to call it Five Maduro Sticks You Must Try. So it's going to be $58, shipping is going to be free, and we're going to have it at

So the last cigar that I do you want to mention here is a Maduro, probably one of the most popular Maduro cigars on the face of the earth in my opinion, is anything from Padron. Anytime that we want to sell a Padron, or we mention Padron to a customer, or a customer is looking for a Padron, it's always the desired wrapper Maduro. Everybody says, "Padron. Do you have Padron?" So this is the 1964 Exclusivo. That's the name of this size, and this is a box press. Probably the most selling Maduro out of our entire operation. We've been in business since 1994, and I can tell you I've sold more Exclusivo Maduro than any Padron we've ever had on our shelf. So this is straight out of Nicaragua, very consistent. This has a San Andres Maduro wrapper, which was grown in Mexico and the Vera Cruz region. So this is also going to be included in the sampler pack.

So this concludes our video for this week. Let me know in the comments, what is your favorite Maduro. If you're a beginner, you're an enthusiast, or a veteran, please let me know.
