Featured Customer Reviews for MAYORGA
seriously one of the worst cigars Ive ever smoked
Got a 5 pack of gordita torpedos, one of the add ons you see when you purchase something. Looked good and am really digging box pressed lately so figured Id give em a try. Every one of them canoed, the outer wrapper cracked and came off, or my biggest pet peeve they burned up the middle and not the outer. Just an all around terrible cigar. For a short torpedo the JR Edicion Limitada Hoyo Piramide is a MUCH better option
Love my Gorditos!
I find this to be the perfect sized smoke for me. Not having many opportunities to designate a couple of hours to a big cigar, these do the trick. I find the flavor to be creamy smooth and very well constructed. The aroma is captivating and you sure cant beat the price!
The Mayorga maduros suffer from an egregious paint job that will turn your teeth and lips brown if you dont first wipe down the head with a dampened paper towel. This action will remove the dark brown tinting, revealing a mottled wrapper. Having done this, you are rewarded with an uneven burn which requires endless touchups and relights, and a relentless harshness that will have you counting the minutes before you may justifiably throw it over the fence in disgust. I smoked Mayorga maduros years ago and enjoyed them. This current iteration, so different than the original blend and manufacture, is disappointing to say the least. Painting the wrapper is just bitter icing on the crummy cake.
Smoking these for many years
I have been smoking Mayorga for many years and have been very satisfied with their flavor. The natural wrapper at times can be a little inconsistent but still tasty nonetheless. The Costa Rican Maduro My favorite is a gem! This black and oily wrapper gives the smoke that added kick and nice chocolatey flavor I have grown to love.
