It’s Stog o’Clock, and this time, I check out the Lamborghini 1963 350 GTV Maduro. This hefty 7×56 Torpedo comes packaged in a classy white cardboard tube. It features a Mexican San Andres Maduro wrapper concealing Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos. I cannot find pricing information on this cigar.
The wrapper produces a damp wood aroma, and I smell zesty grass out of the foot. The cold draw does not give me any distinct flavor. Once lit, I find grass with spicy cocoa and salty black pepper. Through the nose, rich leather and cocoa blend. The finish gives me black pepper, cocoa, and leather.
Thirty minutes in, the first third closes out. On the draw, I pick up cocoa with grass and salty cedar. Through the nose, buttery toast blends with black pepper. The finish offers cocoa with espresso and powdered sugar. Strength and body settle in at medium-to-full.
The second third gets me to one hour. There is no change to the flavors on the draw.
On the retro-hale, I pick up nutty earth with black pepper. The finish gives me cocoa and leather with earth. Strength and body both remain at medium-to-full.
After one hour and thirty minutes, the finish third wisps away. Rich cocoa hits me on the draw alongside earth and black pepper. There is a huge bomb of black pepper on the retro-hale which over-powers any other flavors. Cocoa and espresso mix with black pepper on the finish. Strength and body finish out at medium-to-full.
The Lamborghini 1963 350 GTV Maduro is a very good smoke. It offers a decent amount of complexity with good construction and nice presentation. Being offered in only one quite large size, I would be interested to try the blend in a smaller format. As previously mentioned, I do not have pricing on this cigar, so that would impact my overall opinion, but I do recommend trying this one out. You’ll be pleasantly surprised.
