Wrapper: Dominican CorojoCasa Magna Dominican
Binder: Dominican
Filler: Dominican Cuban Seed
Size: Gran Toro – 6X60
Body: Medium/Full

I picked up a flight sampler a few weeks back from CI and had a chance to try something new from Casa Magna.

The wrapper is a beautiful, reddish brown with a few veins.

The pre-light draw tastes of sweetness and spice, something I’m familiar with and a fan of, concerning Casa Magna. The Colorado is a long time favorite and I’m beginning to lean toward the “Manuel Quesada can do no wrong” camp.

Casa Magna Dominican2Upon lighting, the cigar starts off with hints of white pepper and a smooth taste. The draw is solid and consistent. I make sure to mention this because this is more or less (to me) a value cigar and like so many value cigars, possesses the potential to either disappoint, or be a very solid cigar.  The construction was solid, the cigar feeling like a cigar should in the hand.  Not too tight, nor was it rolled loosely. The cigar actually had heft in it.

This cigar gave me about an hour and a half of smoking time, with a mostly even burn that corrected itself after a short touch up. The flavors mellowed and the white pepper became less intense over the course of smoking, but overall, this cigar is a solid stick.
