The draw was slightly tighter than I prefer, but didn’t cause any issues with the smoking experience.
The cigar began with cedar, mustiness and light floral note. Some chalkiness joined in fairly quickly and the mustiness dropped out a bit later. During the second third, the mustiness returned and the chalkiness dropped out. The final third saw the chalkiness return and a light char join the cedar. Construction was very good and strength was mild-medium most of the way. The Cattle Baron Maduro Bull had a much lighter strength and different flavor profile than I was expecting. The enjoyment was at an average level the whole way. I enjoy a floral note in a cigar, but with the flavor combination, it never really popped for me. Nothing wrong with this cigar, but it performs at a level that a bulk of the cigars on the market do. If you’re a fan of lower strength cigars and enjoy cedar and floral notes, I’d recommend giving this a try. The chalkiness could put some people off, so something to keep in mind.
