The Emilio Series H Maduro comes from Nicaragua and gets the H from its Honduran wrapper. The wrapper is a mix of dark brown and light brown swirled in and is extremely pleasing to the eye. With very strong visible leaf lines it just draws you in. The wrapper has a sweet raisin like smell to it that combines with a natural tobacco finish. I really like the elegance of the band on this cigar, with its gold border and a red floral vine pattern on the back. The cold draw had a pepper that sticks to the tongue and holds.

First puffs– The cigar starts with a rich pepper and cocoa mix. There is also a nice wood note that is under the other flavors. The draw is clean and open with a solid burn.
First third– The pepper has mellowed out almost being gone and I’m getting a bunch of smooth cocoa and some cashew as well. Cocoa is still present as well. The draw is great but the burn is a bit uneven now.

Second third– During the transition it is bringing more of the wood notes paired with the cocoa, nut, and the taste of some ground coffee. Draw is really easy going and I burned the edge to even the draw back to normal and back on track now. The smoke production is medium.
Final third– Pepper and cocoa return to the front of the flavor profile. Coffee and cashew follow and bring a really nice creaminess to this cigar.

Overall a really enjoyable cigar that highlights the quality that cocoa and coffee notes bring to the mix of a cigar. As a Maduro I found it to be on the lighter end thus making this a fantastic entry level Maduro for newer smokers out there. For the price you cant beat the smokabilty and flavor.
