Kioki Troop Support maduro robusto

This oily maduro wrapper is quite beautiful, it is almost black and only has one vein running over it. The construction feels good, just like the predraw which leaves a dark chocolate flavor on my lips. The aroma is a bit sour.

I can taste a pretty full sweet coffee flavor with a bit of pepper. Soon those flavors are accompanied by some sweet chocolate while the texture of the smoke becomes creamy. The pepper is still hanging around in the back of my throat. Halfway the powers progress a little and after 2/3rd the chocolate is gone and I get some wood and a bit of a minty freshness. Soon after, the chocolate returns as an aftertaste.

I get more than enough smoke from this cigar. Due to the trip from the US to The Netherlands and not enough time to recover the cigar dried out a bit which caused the wrapper to crack. This didn’t help the ash, which became quite dark and frayed. The draw was fine.

Would I buy this cigar again? Yes, this is a very nice everyday smoke.
