PDR 1878 Cubano Especial Capa Madura already caught the eye of critics, earning a 90-rating in the process which noted: "This pigtailed, cedary smoke burns and draws evenly, showing some licorice sweetness and an earthiness that lingers on the palate."
I really enjoyed this cigar. The burn was even with a strong ash. The flavor had a smooth earthy taste. Toward the end of the cigar it got spicy and left a slight flavor of spices on the lips. The cigar was one of the nicest and enjoyable cigars I have had. It is a definite staple in my humidor!!
