I bought a couple La Flor de Maria Mancini's the other week. They've been in the humidor and I am smoking one now. They are good but not amazing. For the price (low) they are decent. Perhaps I need to age for 6 months to a year. Thoughts?
I'm new to the forums here...... just wondering if anyone else tried a Maria Mancini. I recently picked up a box from JR and was quite surprised at how good they were. I't's wrapped the H2000 wrapper (maduro also available) which I thought was quite good.
I pretty much agree with Cigarslut's assessment, but....
Yes, the burn is uneven, but so what?
The rest of the cigar's characteristics are on poi...

Ive read in a few threads lately, and I know its always a goal to find that great stick for $2-3. I just got done smoking a Maria Mancini and I have to say, I may have just found my golden stick. :whoo:
It was a good stick when I first got it, and the one I just had, with about a year of age...
This was a solid, respectable cigar.
Initial taste was very good-- very nutty. The cigar evolved into something that was earthy-- almost remini...

Maria Mancini De Gaulle
Size: 4.75 x 52
Tobacco: Costa Rica, Honduras, Nicaragua
I won a box of these cigars (named for the famous Italian courtesan who captured the heart of King Louis XIV) from JR Auctions at the ridiculous price of $27. I tried to pace myself, making the box...
I had forgotten about these cigars until I was looking through the latest JR Cigars catalog. I remember having several of these at least 4 years ago and loving the natural Magic Mountain. I believe they got some pretty good ratings in CA too. JR has them for $45/box of 20.
I purchased these about a year ago. Tried one after shipment and they were INSANE HARSH...Stuck them in the Humi until tonight, and decided to break one out.
Wrapper: Costa Rica
Construction: Fairly Crude, Box Pressed Cigar. Veiny wrapper. Not a...
A B&M daily smoke suggestion. At $3.75 (NYS 35% tax on wholesale for retailers) for a rothschild I wasn't expecting much from this cigar. The messed it up a bit by not puching hard on the desktop cutter, never used one before. However, the construct was a bit weak. We'll get to that...
The MM line are real value cigars.:teacher: Available at JR's & Lynns, among others. Especially the de-Gaulle robusto with the H2000 maduro wrapper and the Magic Mountain maduro are two of my favorites. Dark maduro taste with floral tones. Great after 6 months or more aging.
The de-Gaulle can...

Been wanting to try this cigar since I'd had the MM
Magic Mountain both Nat and Maduro (both go to smokes IMHO).
Tried a single from a local B&M ($7- per stick; Kalifornia go figure). Seemed promising so ordered a box of degaulle maduro's from JRcigar - upon arrival the first one seemed...

My first attempt at a review-
I decided to order a 8 pack sampler of this cigar from JR - 4 each maduro and natural; for $19 hard to go wrong there.
