Jesus Castanon – Mareba

Mareba 019 (600x400)


Hello all my fans and haters, I am finally back! Moving took so long with the condition my neck is in but now everything is finished and I can hopefully get back to reviewing some cigars. I did lose my smoking room so I will either record at a shop or outside when it isn’t too cold for my wussy ass.

This week I take a look at the Jesus Castanon Mareba cigar which is a Brazilian puro available in one size, 5 3/4 x 50 with a MSRP of $12 a stick. Yea, a bit out of my comfort range but lets give it a shot anyway.

I am going to let the video do most of the work this week as this was a bit of a trial run due to my internet connection being at least 10 times slower than my DSL at our old house. Country living is great but cheap companies that wont get true broadband out here make life difficult.

A little short snippet about the cigar is it surprised me with how little chocolate taste I got and it was a little one dimensional. Now this is not a bad thing in all forms but for a cigar at this price point I was hoping for a little more.


Would I buy it again? Yes. I cant see buying a whole box but I would definitely be keen on keeping some in my humidor(s) when I wanted a great smoking cigar without a lot of complexity. It really is a nice relaxing smoke, I just wish the price point would be a little lower (yes, I am still cheap).

I hope to be back to my regular format next week as long as I can find a place to smoke and record (local shops are still 40 minutes plus away)
