This Cigar was introduced By Cuban Crafters last November as i remember. as mentioned in their websiteit was called after the Master Roller “Manuel Medina who played a formidable role in Cuba’s cigar history. He started as a roller at the H. Upmann factory in Cuba. His talents were quickly recognized and he eventually became the factory’s Master Cigar Maker, overseeing hundreds of master cigar rollers. He was then promoted and became the Master Cigar Maker in Cuba’s Davidoff factory. His talents were showcased throughout Europe, leading him to travel extensively. During one of those trips, he decided to seek freedom instead of success. Medina made Miami, Florida his new home. He is now in charge of cigar production at Cuban Crafters’ Miami factory. Some of the Master Rollers who make the Medina 1959 Miami Edition cigars even worked for him in Cuba”.
According to the WebSitethis cigar contains Cuban-seed Habano long-filler and binder that aged for 6 years and the super-premium Cuban-seed wrapper is aged for at least 5 years. Actually i’ve smoked lots of this cigar in many different places and Times and here what i found:
Size: 5″ X 50 Ring Gauge
Pre Light & Construction:
The construction is what I call perfect, No soft spot with beautifully triple cap. The wrapper is vein less with little oil sheen on it. After clipping the cap the draw was easy and more than my preference however good. The aromas that came off were Fruity with little bit of earth and hints of coffee. Lite tobacco and wood flavors too.
The 1st couple of draws were very mild creamy with hints of earth however it quickly change to show what it got. Sweet creamy smoke with background of wood and coffee that was pleasantly come with every draw. Some spiciness shows later on here. Then it has some more flavors of nuts and the body was Almost medium.
More complexity in the flavor profile. Mouth watering creamy nutty smoke with More caramel sweetness, coffee and spices kick off this third. Some earthiness, wood and leather hints with medium body. In The midway point the Cigar shows more spiciness with hints of cocoa.
As smoking down the cigar have lots to give with flavorful profile keeps you attended to every puff. Found here more than before, spiciness, leather, coffee, and earth that Was not harsh by any mean. Still can find creamy nutty cool smoke with a rich cocoa background.
A Beautiful Cigar that could be smoked any time. in fact i’ve smoked all the Sizes available. I like it and i consider it as the Best cigar produced by the Cuban crafters. yes if is little bit price but worth the money. the only thing i didnt like in this cigar that didn’t change much with aging.
