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.

Pre-Light: 18 Points of 20 Possible

This is a nice looking stick with a slightly oily wrapper. There are a couple veins but nothing to make the wrapper rough.The pak is firm and has a slightly uneven triple cap.It has a real nice barnyard smell to it with a slight touch of chocolate.The stick cuts with no problems.

Light & Burn: 13 Points of 15 Possible

The stick fires up nicely after a good toasting.Right of the bat there is a nice smoke output.The burn does wavier slightly at times but never needs a touch up.The ash is a medium grey with some charcoal and holds on for better than a inch at a time.I never encountered any issues with the burn at any time.

Construction: 27 Points of 30 Possible

The construction on this stick is great I have come to expect nothing less from DE.There are a couple minor blemishes on the wrapper but certainly nothing to affect performance.The draw I find is spot on with just enough resistance.The wrapper has nice tight seams which make them almost invisible and the pak is nice a firm.

Flavor: 31 Points of 35 Possible

1st Third-The stick fires right up and the smoke output is great.The stick stays smooth and the strength is about a medium.I get some spice and some chocolate on the retro.I also get some chocolate and oak on the draw also with just a touch of coffee.The burn time is around 30min.
2nd Third-I am still getting a lot of chocolate and so far  I find this the dominate flavor. The flavors stay very consistent with the first third but I get a little cinominnon at one point.The spice dies off the retro.The strength is still a medium.Burn time 25min.
Last Third-I really don't find much change in the last third but there is some spice returning to the retro.The the strength never waivers to much and the finish stays short.The stick stays smooth and cool all the way to the nub.burn time 25min.

Summary

I smoked some smaller versions of this line but I must say I enjoyed this one the most.I am a fan of DE and this stick shows me why.I would smoke another one of hese in a heart beat.Thanks Joe for letting me in on this review I really enjoyed the stick.
