The Casa Magna Oscuro Churchill gordo is the biggest cigar out of the Casa Magna Oscuro line with it’s 6 ⅝x56 size. It recently became available in The Netherlands and here’s the review.
The wrapper is dark and shiny with lots of oil and a few small veins. The cigar feels silky though with a hard construction. The smell is mild peppery. the predraw is a bit hard and I taste spicy tobacco.
I taste coffee with a little bit of sugar. After half an inch I also get some spicy herbs. After an inch I taste pepper, herbs and straw with a mild sweetness. After a third the flavors are sweet herbs with some toast on the background.
Halfway I taste some sweet wood with spicy and peppery herbs on the background. After two thirds I taste an earthy flavor and near the end I taste pepper again, green pepper with that earthy flavor.
This cigar lasted me for two hours and ten minutes. The draw is a bit tight, with a lot of medium thick smoke. The pepper and salt colored ash is coarse and firm. The burn is great. This cigar is full flavored and full bodied.
Would I buy this cigar again? No, I didn’t care for it at all
