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 Topo Chico

Pre-Light: 18 Points of 20 Possible

Great looking cigar, a little oily with a chocolate wrapper with some small veins down the length of it. Cool foil stamped band, smells like a cigar nothing stands out too much to me. V cut, held up well to the cap.

Light & Burn: 14 Points of 15 Possible

Lit up just fine, pretty razor-sharp edge for most of it. Some minor touch ups here and there, overall this stick burned great. Wasn’t too tight of a draw and had plenty of thick white smoke. This took me around 1.5 hours from start to finish.

Construction: 26 Points of 30 Possible

I’d say overall the construction seemed very well made, no hard spots or overly soft spots. Cap started to unravel a little towards the end of the smoke but nothing out of the ordinary. Ash held on for a solid inch or so.

Flavor: 25 Points of 35 Possible

Lighting the cigar I immediately tasted earth but in a good way, a tad spicy but not overpowering. The first third was like basically every other cigar in this part, tastes like a cigar…
After the first third I can see a change in flavor, starting with a little leather and still plenty of earth. Smooth smoke so far, a little chocolate in there.
Moving into the last third of the cigar, still plenty smooth and earthy but more chocolate than before but still subtle enough to not take away from the cigar as a whole.


Summary

Overall the MUWAT + 11 was a solid cigar, but I wouldn’t say it was amazing or that it blew me away. I would definitely smoke this again as a decent everyday cigar. The look of the cigar and the construction were very well done as was the burn and ash. Was wishing for a little more with this one but still a solid smoke.
