Madonna Aged 2+ Years

(1 customer review)



Tabacalera Puente. Home of the other Eladio Diaz. For those that do not know, Eladio Diaz is the master blender behind the Delectados series and is possibly the most famous and respected cigar blender to ever come out of the Dominican Republic. He was the master blender at Davidoff for about 30 years. What most cigar aficionados and aspiring aficionados do not know is that he has a brother who was there with him most of the time and is also named Eladio. How they are both named Eladio is a longer story but they are actually brothers with the same name. I call him the other Eladio but he has a nickname of Chebede. That is how his nickname sounds in Spanish anyway. Where else will you get this knowledge other than Privada? What an awesome community and culture we are growing here. Chebede works with two young guys, you can see him and the younger guys in our video called “In Search Of Jopito” on our YouTube channel. It is well worth the watch. When you smoke this cigar, you will be reminded of a Davidoff cigar from the past. If you have never tried one, know that this is the flavor profile you could expect from those classic white and gold labels. This is what these guys know. That style. They created it. They mastered it. They ARE it. Another experience for the books awaits. Happy Smoking.

Wrapper: Havanna
Binder: Piloto Cubano
Fillers: San Vicente, Piloto, and Habano

Body: Honey and hay.
Foot: Faintly nutty aged tobacco.
Cold Draw: Super-aged tobacco, slight canned peach.

Tasting Notes: Immediately I get traditional, aged Dominican flavors of mustiness which some describe as mushroom. There is also a canned peach or fruit-like note that brings sweetness to the tip of the tongue. White pepper dances with oak and the smoke output is rich and velvety. This thing is complex for sure. Further in, the sensations pick up. Cinnamon makes an entrance and it really develops into a very classic, aged Eladio Diaz style cigar. It seems fitting, because it was blended by Eladio’s brother who also happens to be named Eladio.

In the second third the oak takes a backseat as a sharper cedar makes a presence. The first third of a cigar always ages fastest so around this point is when we really get into the part of the cigar that is closest to when it was initially created. Alongside cedar, there is a fruity twang that reminds me of apricot, with cinnamon still being prevalent. I also get a musty forest floor note and faint flavors of coffee bean and vanilla. The retrohale on this thing is silky and stimulating, leaving a nice white pepper in the nose.

In the final third I get notes of roasted coffee bean, peanut butter, white pepper, oak, cedar and a whole lot of cinnamon. The smoke is creamy and dense now and the sensations leave my mouth watering. This is an incredible display of what Dominican tobacco can offer with proper age and blending.

Pairing Notes: Scotch of all kinds, roasted nuts, cream soda, arroz con pollo, roast Pork, cinnamon Schnapps, vanilla latte, drunken noodles (Thai food), caramel

    Got one in my box months ago and when I finally got around to smoking it, I was surprised! It had such a good aroma coming from it as I smoked it. It was a very sweet smell and it helped translate that into the smoke flavor. I got like a peachy fruit leather note. Smoke was smooth and abundant and the construction was great. A couple days later I hoped on here and bought five more for $9 a stick. This was at the end of April. Now, I come back to buy more and they’ve increased 5 dollars to $14 a stick. I’m not sure how that’s possible.
