Manuel Quesada and Nestor Plasencia’s joint creation in 2008 Casa Magna, has been lauded with awards since its inception into the cigar world. The Extrordinarios is a Nicaraguan puro, adorned in a Nicaraguan grown Colorado Rosado wrapper and is a 7×58 salomon. This ought to be interesting figurado to review.

The wrapper has a nice oily sheen to it, and also possesses a subtle appearance of veins. The Colorado Rosado wrapper smells sweetly of chili peppers, ground espresso beans, molasses, and paprika.

The wrapper tastes of anise, coriander, curry, honey, and mesquite; the draw is effortless, and the draw hints are composed of black licorice, Earl grey, and wheat.

The toasted foot smells of caramel, cashews, cream, hickory, thyme, and white peppercorns.

There’s a supple amount of smoke off of the foot and exhale, and is snow white in color; the ash is salt and pepper in complexion. The cigar tastes of butter cream, chili peppers, hickory, mesquite, mocha, pemmican, and thyme; at three quarters of an inch in and thirty minutes into it.

A full inch in, the hints change up with flavors of cocoa, cracked black peppercorns, espresso beans, mahogany, sea salt, and tarragon; The ash rather flaky, and in turn prevents any real development of rings to form.

An hour in approximately give inches of this vitola remain, and the abundant smoke off of the nose smells much like salted cashews. Rings have finally formed in two millimeter bands.

The Extrordinarios burns rife with canoes and even plains. At three and half inches, and an hour and twenty minutes in; This particular Casa Magna is medium-full in body and medium in strength. Where as the Pikito oddly enough as a petite corona is equally full in body and strength for such a small package. The figurado warms up on the touch around two and a half inches.

The rings are now banding in one millimeter bands.

This cigar under normal circumstances such savoring ought to smoke for around two and a half to three hours; though during my review I’ve been a bit faster on the draw cutting the burn time down to two hours flat.

Purchased from Davidus Cigars on Rockville Pike, 20852 on July eleventh; for 10.75$ before tax.
