Overall, delicious. I liked how the cigar touched the major areas to be qualified as a good cigar (sweet, spice, earth). This is really no different than all the Casa Cuevas offerings I've had, ie balanced and focused on flavors instead of strength. If you're a fan of other offerings from the brand, this will no doubt please you too.
Both blends are available in one size, a 7X43 Lancero and come in an elegant ten count box. Only 750 individually numbered boxes were made for each blend. Both blends are made at the Cuevas Family-owned Las Lavas Cigar Factory in Santiago, Dominican Republic.

The Casa Cuevas Cuevas Reserva Maduro Toro is fantastic and shows great spice, stone fruit and dark chocolate notes. It is complex and smokes at a great medium-full level from start to finish. The construction was dead on and with that, the draw was fantastic. You will not be disappointed with the blend.
The Casa Cuevas Maduro Toro had a nice start with a good combination of flavors, but from the second third, when the floral note dropped out, the profile became average the rest of the way. The chalkiness from this maduro isn't something I'm the biggest fan of, but it wasn't as off putting as some other maduro wrapped blends.
