Oily, dark and lush, the Honduran Oscuro wrapper conceals a smart blend of Cuban-seed Nicaraguan and Honduran long-fillers with a Cuban-seed Honduran binder. The construction is excellent and smooth to the touch. All the tobaccos are intensely fermented and well-aged, producing one of the blackest-looking cigars on the market. For all that, the taste is surprisingly inviting. Lighting up the Casa Magna Oscuro produces hints of dried fruit, like raisins. It’s a strong, full-flavored smoke but not overpowering. Any serious appreciator of maduro will love the Casa Magna Oscuro. Only the brilliant tobacco minds of Manuel Quesada and Nestor Plasencia could come up with such a tasty and rich smoke.
