Macanudo Porofino (panatela) (tubo) 7 x 34

Wrapper: Connecticut Shade.

Binder: Mexican

Filler: Dominican


This cigar has a light cedar smell to it unlit. There is one soft spot just over half way through. Uncut taste is slightly creamy and very light. Cut with a double guillotine. Draw is tight and tasted woody. Not easy to light due to the wind

First few puffs are a strange woody bitter sweet. I think this is because of the way I had to light the cigar. I had to have the lighter almost right on it so the wind wasn’t a problem. This long thin cigar feels strange in my hands compared to the 48-55 ring I am used to smoking.

First ash is almost an inch. The taste is Cedar and maybe a hint of sweet. There is no spice at all. The smaller ring size is making it burn hotter and therefore more bitter. If it wasn’t for the bitter this first inch would actually be good. All around it’s a light taste.

Half way point: Taste is about the same but a bit sweeter. Aftertaste is cedar in a slightly bitter kind of way. No burn issues yet but I’m coming up on the soft spot.

Last two inches: No burn problems through the soft spot; just a faster burn. The taste is still the same. Draw is even tighter. Still no spice.

Last few puffs: I still have one inch or so left and I have to put it out because the smoke is now too bitter and too hot.

Burn time: 1 hour

Burn: 10

Draw: 7

Appearance: 7

Taste: 8
