Here it is a couple of days after Christmas and my humidors are bulging. My staff gave me a box of the new Macanudo Serie R cigars for Christmas. Dwight and I broke them out Christmas night. These are a small ring gauge and about robusto length.
At the foot, it produced a stronger than expected flavor, but then burned quite mild. A nice short smoke. It burned flawlessly: nice long ash and only had to be lit once; a very well made cigar. (In pleasant contrast to some others I've commented on here recently).
While it won't replace the No. 2 in my selection, it is nonetheless a good smoke.
