Initial Thoughts:

I was first introduced to the Casa Cuevas brand by Luxury Cigar Club in the middle of 2019. The Casa Cuevas Connecticut was a delicious cigar that was priced right, and it earned a CigarScore of 4. So, when the Casa Cuevas Limited Edition Maduro Flaco showed up (also from Luxury Cigar Club), I was pretty excited to smoke it.

The LE Maduro is a rustic-looking cigar with a fairly veiny wrapper and a pigtail end. The first half-inch of the cigar had a great draw and a mostly even burn, and I had high hopes for the rest of it.

Brand: Casa Cuevas
Line: Limited Edition, Maduro
Size: 7 x 43
Cut: Guillotine
Light: Torch
Price: $9.05
Wrapper: Mexican San Andres
Binder: Nicaraguan
Filler: Columbian, Dominican, Nicaraguan, United States

Final Thoughts:

In the middle third of the cigar, I was both impressed and disappointed. The burn and draw of the cigar were almost perfect - and certainly admirable for a sub-$10 cigar - but the flavors started tasted bitter and of ammonia.

In the end, however, the burn was basically perfect, the draw was wonderful, and most (but not all) of the harshness in the middle third faded. If I had another one of these cigars, I'd definitely smoke it, but I'd let it rest, age, and mature in my humidor for 6-8 months before lighting it up. And, because I'd smoke the Casa Cuevas Limited Edition Maduro Flaco again, it gets a CigarScore of 3.
