EIROA CBT MADURO 48X4 PRENSADO
CBT is short for Capa Banda Tripa, which is a tobacco leaf that cures and ferments with a lot of body and strength usually deriving from the very high primings on a tobacco plant. During fermentation, these leaves typically take on a very dark, or Maduro, color.
The EIROA CBT Maduro feels complete. It has a set of core flavors that evolve from start to finish and a host of different notes and undertones that seamlessly enter and exit the profile throughout the cigar. The cigar doesn't lend itself to noting changes in thirds too well, rather the cigar is continually evolving at an even and linear pace throughout its course. When a given characteristic comes to life it adds something to the profile that wasn't there before, but more importantly, when a characteristic comes to pass it doesn't feel like there is something missing.
