Pre-Light

Welcome to this week’s review of the Nick’s Sticks Maduro churchill. This cigar has some fun history and you should head over to Perdomo’s website to take a gander.

Looking over this cigar I see a mostly rustic appearance with a couple bumps all around and a few veins. For some reason it just looks like a nice cigar. Even though this cigar is a maduro, it is not a real dark color and I am actually glad they did not try to make it darker by using dye. Note for all manufacturers, dye is not fun.

Taking a whiff of the stick and the wrapper doesn’t give me much of anything but a natural tobacco scent, while the foot gives a faint dark chocolate smell.

Clipped the cigar and was presented with a very nice loose draw.

Out comes the flame.

Cigar

Upon lighting my Nick’s Sticks Maduro I was presented with a tobacco taste and a slight chocolate taste in the background. Upon sending the smoke through my sinus’ I found the cigar had a spicy component to it but right now it is not very strong.

Going through the cigar I would pick up some nice sweetness here and there but it always seemed to get overpowered by the spice and bitterness from the chocolate taste.

I think this Nick’s Sticks Maduro stayed pretty consistent throughout while gaining in the spice, body and harshness towards the end.

Wrap-Up

Concluding this Nick’s Sticks Maduro review, I have to say this was not one of my favorites. I may keep some around for those days when I want a spicy stick while snowblowing or doing work around the house but they just do not fall into my normal smoking category.

I do think you should give them a try because for the price point, you will not lose a lot of money just giving them a chance. You may like them more than I did.
