Epic Maduro Cigar by Dean Parsons #2

20150217_160256_wm

 The Epic Maduro cigar had a very complex and robust flavor with an overall full character.  It had a very even, slow burn and held a nice long ash.  Its strength picked up in the second half of the smoke, making for a mouthwatering experience.  There were cocoa notes along with both sweetness and spiciness that lingered both on the palate and in the air.  Epic Maduro has great construction and ended with a big, flavorful finish.
