Cigar Review | La Dueña

It’s Stog o’Clock, and this time, I review an old favorite of mine and see how it fares after a long vacation from my palate.

La Duena

The wrapper gives me a tobacco and leather aroma, while the foot produces a smell of spicy nutmeg. The cold draw offers some black pepper spice and cedar. Once torched up, I get a smoky fruit on the draw with some spicy black pepper and cinnamon. Through the nose, I get a classic My Father pepper bomb and coffee. The finish gives me bitter black pepper, earth, and almond.

After twenty minutes, I finish the first third. On the draw, I find some dark chocolate with blackberry and coffee notes. Through the nose, there is spicy black pepper with some toast and a dark earth. The finish is delicious with a chocolate-covered peanut note on top of smoky leather. Both the strength and body settle in at the medium-to-full mark.

La Duena

The second third closes out at forty minutes. The draw presents me with some raisin alongside more dark chocolate and metallic earth. Through the nose, I pick up more black pepper with hay and what is now very nutty earth. The finish is long offering up salty cocoa with more smoky leather. There is no change to strength or body.

La Duena

The final third gets me to the one-hour mark. On the draw, there is some bold espresso with more dark chocolate flavor and cedar. The retro-hale gives me additional black pepper with an earth that has now become very meaty. The finish is a lovely mix of buttery, salty chocolate on top of grass and leather. The strength and body finish out consistently at the medium-to-full mark.

La Duena

La Dueña is a complex cigar with flavors that balance well together. It has enough strength to be recognizable, but it doesn’t knock you out. At the $8-9 price range, it’s not too shabby on price, either. I highly recommend this cigar and can say that this blend ages well, too. Don’t miss this one!

Keep it smoky!

    I heard the rumor about them being discontinued 6 mos ago. I couldn’t find anything confirming it. The MF rep said that he didn’t know anything about it, and our local stores have been getting them. The MF website still lists them as well.
    I only found 1 mention of it on reddit. Where did you hear about it? If it’s true I definitely want to grab a few before they disappear.

  2. I am questioning the rumor as well. I heard it through a few BOTLs in some forums, but I keep seeing these for sale on many websites. Cheers!

    These are no longer being made…My Father discontinued them a few months ago..I have seen them for half price and below because retailers are trying to clear them out. I’m a huge broadleaf fan and these are a true broadleaf blend, great review buddy!

    Man, I didn’t know that. What a bummer! I’ve always enjoyed this blend. Might have to swoop some if I see them real cheap. Cheers!
