Alpha Absinthe Infused Maduro
San Andres Maduro wrappers have entered a new golden age, and the Alpha Cigar Co. Absinthe Infused Maduro is a rare Maduro cigar that stands above the rest. Rated a 92 by Cigar and Spirits magazine, it is the world’s highest-rated infused cigar by any major publication.
The Golf Guide Guys gave it a 9.4 on our scale, but remember we are learning here together!
Let’s look at it!
Wrapper: Waxy feel, not dry. Looks good with very little veins present and the label is something I would expect from a prime cigar.
Aroma: My nose picks up a Hay scent, again my nose is learning. I also pick up a herbal note.
Pre-Light Draw: Herbal, Sweet Cedar and I am doing my best to use the right words to best describe what I sense.
Lets set it on fire: Little spice, but very smooth with a hint of that Hay mixed with herbs I had mentioned before. Best described for me as mild to medium taste on the first draw. It’s not hot to the lips very smooth.
Burn: First third burn for me is very complex with mixed herbs a hint of cream through the nose and I can only best describe it as rosemary with white pepper. It’s a good start for me with this Alpha!
Not a Pro yet so let’s see what a Pro thinks!
Upholding Cuban traditions, the cigars are rolled in pairs and bunched in the Cuban entubado style for an optimal draw. Prior to rolling, a single leaf in each cigar is lightly infused with a premium French Absinthe. The 15 different herbs used in the production of this Absinthe lend diverse botanical subtleties to the cigar, especially on the retrohale.
Alpha Cigar Company is now one of the leading producers of premium infused cigars.
