Cigar Geeks Geek Critique

Drew Estate MUWAT +11

Cigar Geeks Rating

Welcome to another Member sponsored Geek Critique.  This one has been generously sponsored by our member MacMac (Joe).  The cigar provided for this round is the Drew Estate MUWAT +11.

Introducing Jonathan Drew's creation, MUWAT - a most excellent edition to Drew Estate's Subculture Studio. This joint project with Joya de Nicaragua is medium to full in body, and boasts a variety of vitolas booming with flavor. Dark and oily San Andres maduro wrappers conceal a hefty dose of Nicaraguan and Brazilian long-fillers secured by a smooth Connecticut 'Capote' binder. The cigar is hearty and rich, unveiling a deep series of bold yet balanced flavors from start to finish. Layered with complexity - earth, leather, pepper, sweetness, cocoa - the massive 60-ring frame is the ultimate vehicle to savor each of these complex intricacies throughout the slow and cool burn.

This cigar was enjoyed with peach tea and water

Pre-Light: 18 Points of 20 Possible

this cigar had a very dry to oily sheen to it, it had very menial veining in it, the cap was well applied. there was no soft spots along the barrel, It had a very sweet barnyard smell along the barrel with a sweet grass smell at the foot, The cap cut smooth and pre draw was nice.

Light & Burn: 12 Points of 15 Possible

The burn on this cigar was good until after the ash fell and then it required a couple of touch ups. The ash held for about 1/2 inch or so, and was stacked and salt and pepper in color, the smoke volume was good. I had to relight the cigar twice however one of them was my fault.

Construction: 25 Points of 30 Possible

The draw on this cigar was perfect for me with just the right amount pull, the wrapper was applied very nice you almost could not see the lines. The cap was also well done and I had no problems when cutting.

Flavor: 28 Points of 35 Possible

The cigar started out for me with a touch of spice that I felt on my lips, a little woody with a sweet leather taste. The spice was short lived and the woody taste stayed along with the sweet leather. After the ash dropped it seamed to go dead for me I had a hard time picking a distinguishing notes except for a tangy leather. The second half fell short it was kind of boring however I did pick up a touch of coffee that I wished had lasted a little longer.

Summary

Overall this cigar was just not for me again. I say this as I've smoked a couple of these when they first came out. Thought that maybe my palate had changed some over the last few years I and I would like them but still not in my wheelhouse. Thanks for giving me the chance once again to try this cigar. Maybe in a couple of more years it might work for me.
