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 Water

Pre-Light: 19 Points of 20 Possible

This stick had a slightly oily hue to it. The wrapper was really pretty smooth with  only one noticeable vein but it was very small. The cigar gave off a light tobacco aroma upon removing it from its cello. I punched the cap which seemed to be well applied.

Light & Burn: 14 Points of 15 Possible

I toasted the foot before lightinging. It lit quickly and never required a relight. The burn on this cigar was slightly wavy, thus the 1 point I deducted from the score.  As soon as it was lit all the way to the very end, it provided tons of smoke. The medium gray ash was solid and well compacted and held on for about 1 3/4 inches before falling off and hitting the ground with a thud. This cigar was about a 40 minute smoke for me.

Construction: 29 Points of 30 Possible

The draw on this cigar was very open and never restricted. I have never had one of these that was restricted. The only fault with the wrapper, and it's just my preference, I like the looks of oily wrapper. About half of thes MUWAT cigars I have smoked have offered the oily look. Other then that I would say it was perfect. No hard spots, no bumps, and the cap was well applied,

Flavor: 31 Points of 35 Possible

The strength and body of this cigar fits my pallet to a t. For me it's a just above medium strength smoke but not medium full. The favors I typically get from these are a dark chocolate , dark coffee, and a little spice. This cigar seemed to lacking on the dark chocolate flavor. It was there just not as pronounced as some of the others I have had.
For really about the first half of this cigar I got a mild dark chocolate and tobacco taste from it. At about the halfway mark it started transitioning to a heavier, darker flavor which ended up being a dark roasted coffee taste. It stayed this way till the end. In the last 10 minutes of the smoke I started getting a little bit of white pepper on the tongue and lips.

Summary

Overall I really enjoyed this cigar. I have had several different ones of the brand and it remains one of my go to inexpensive cigars today. I would recommend this cigar to smoker at any level. I think it is and overall well built, well balanced cigar.
