It’s back, baby!
ITC Super Fuerte Maduro is here, and cigar fans across the nation are rejoicing. If you’ve done your Cigar History homework, you likely remember this as the original blend that put Rocky Patel on the map all the way back in the 1900s (well, the 90’s, but you get the point). And I’ve got good news for you — this blend hasn’t been tweaked a bit. It’s the same as it always was. And in this case, that means it’s just as rich and mouthwateringly decadent as ever. Hey, if it ain’t broke…
Let’s take a quick look at the stats here. Up top, a thick and oily Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper. Underneath, Nicaraguan, Costa Rican, and Honduran long-fillers are blended together in perfect harmony. The result is a dense and thick flavor profile, ripe with chocolate, earth, leather, and a nice kick of black pepper. It’s a cigar that wakes up every taste bud you’ve got available, with droves of flavor coming through on every puff. Don’t sleep on this one — the original release was an absolute monster, and I expect these are going to move just as quickly.
