Acid Kuba Kuba is a complex flavored cigar with notes from floral to fruity with the staple sweetened tip. If you read Maria’s review of Kuba Kuba, you might wonder how Acid Kuba Kuba Maduro tastes.
With its wide selection of cigars, infused flavors, and wrappers, Drew Estate got you covered. Drew Estate expertly combined Kuba Kuba’s rich sweetness with the Sumatra flavor of the wrapper, so changing to a Maduro wrapper is interesting.
How would Maduro’s rich flavors work with this cigar? This review of Acid Kuba Kuba Maduro will try to figure out. This is also a mild to medium cigar with a sweetened tip, so using a Maduro wrapper is a good idea to add texture and depth.
The Kuba Kuba is an aromatic cigar reminiscent of fruity extracts, so I expect this one to have a pleasant scent, too. For veteran cigar enthusiasts who prefer classic cigars, this might not be to your taste. Nevertheless, check out this Acid Kuba Kuba Maduro review for insights when you have a chance to try one.

The box is ordinary and does not vary from the standard Drew Estate Acid Cigar box. Usually, the plain box works well because it’s easy to store.
The band of the cigar is the same as the neon blue of the Acid Kuba Kuba Natural. The appeal, of course, is the dark, rich color that makes the cigar undeniably Maduro. It’s a classic, rusty, oily wrapper. The construction is compact with few veins, and it is neither lumpy nor bumpy.

Smoking Experience

The aroma on the prelight is a combination of a minty scent with some hay.
I expected the sweetened tip for a Drew Estate Acid cigar, so no surprises there. The smoke is a creamy aroma that is pleasant to the senses. The draw is slightly on the loose end, while the flavor is generally earthy yet hard to describe.
I try to break down the flavor, but the range of flavors from sage, herb, spice, or rosemary is hard to determine precisely. Some faint woody notes are present, too. If there were more woody notes, this would have added more balance for me. The mild, sweet flavors are so far enjoyable.
The second thirds showed no transition, with the same flavors coming out. Now, there are natural tobacco flavors that share the palette with the sweetness of the tobacco. The burning is uneven, but the draw is consistent, and the cigar required little touch-up.
The final thirds show similar flavors with little to no transition. Except for the sweetness dying down, the rest of the flavors are enough to keep my interest.
It’s a great, mild, cigar with rich flavors. Though it tends to canoe, the mildness and aroma are worth appreciating.


Holding Acid Kuba Kuba Maduro

The Acid Kuba Kuba Maduro is a good cigar with an excellent body. The flavors are not as complex as Acid Kuba Kuba, with few transitions, but this is still an enjoyable stick and a good choice.
For those who have yet to try an Acid stick, try this cigar first to get a feel of the flavor profile of the Acid line.
To enjoy it, you can pair it up with a flavorful drink. I think this is meant to be enjoyed on a light evening to wind down. It has plenty of flavors, without any aftertaste or bursts of strength. I give it an 84.

Herrera Esteli

The Cuban-inspired Herrera Esteli has the perfect balance any cigar lover would look for in a cigar. This full and well-rounded flavor hails from Drew Estate’s factory in Nicaragua. Everything starts with a beautiful Ecuadorian Habano wrapper that wraps long Nicaraguan and Honduran tobacco fillers. This cigar is rolled in the entubado style which can be difficult and time-consuming. Herrera Esteli cigars give off a creamy flavor for the finish along with overtones of cedar, wood, spices, and coffee beans. Such cigars are magnificent and they offer nothing but joy.

Tabak Especial Robusto Dulce

Infused cigars bring a variety of flavors and strengths to the table, with many seeking the perfect balance between a medium body and a hint of sweetness. Drew Estate is a standout brand in this category, known for its consistent excellence. Their Tabak Especial Robusto Dulce stands out, enriched with flavors from Nicaraguan coffee sourced from the historic Selva Negra plantation. Initiating with a honeycomb-like sweetness, it shifts to deep espresso notes, complemented by its impeccable construction and burn. Although priced slightly higher, its value is justified by its unmatched quality and the absence of any lingering aftertaste. Best paired with coffee or a light tea, it’s a top pick for those yearning for a nuanced, sweet cigar experience. This encompasses a review of Tabak Especial Robusto Dulce.

Joya de Nicaragua Silver

Joya de Nicaragua, a cigar manufacturer with over 50 years of experience, is renowned for its top-tier cigars. One of its standout products is the Joya de Nicaragua Silver, a full-bodied, smooth-flavored cigar originating from Nicaragua. Encased in an Ecuadorian Oscuro wrapper, complemented by a Mexican binder and Nicaraguan fillers, this cigar showcases a box-pressed dark brown appearance. Despite its dark wrapper, the flavor profile is a balanced blend of light and dark notes, including pepper, nuts, coffee, and hints of cocoa, hay, and creaminess. The cigar’s performance is remarkable, with consistent burn, firm ash, and fluctuating draw tightness. For those seeking a luxurious smoking experience, the Joya de Nicaragua Silver provides complex flavors and impressive construction, making it an ideal choice for both seasoned aficionados and newcomers.

La Herencia Cubana Toro

The La Herencia Cubana Toro cigar, originating from Nicaragua, captivates with its dark, almost brown, veined wrapper. While its robust flavors of black pepper and Nicaraguan tobacco dominate the palate, its absence of light or creamy notes can lead to a drying experience for some smokers. Although the cigar’s construction showcases commendable burn, ash retention, and smoke output, its flavor profile might be too bold for those who prefer medium or milder tastes. Regardless of the strong flavors and full strength, the La Herencia Cubana Toro is a choice for those who relish a pronounced smoking experience, summarizing this review of La Herencia Cubana Toro.
