Cusano M1

Cusano M1 robusto
$3.50, Size: 5", Ring: 50
Connecticut shade-grown wrapper, Dominican filler

The M1 is the mildest of Cusano's Celebrity Series of bundle cigars, and is supposedly a clone of a more expensive cigar, a Macanudo. Sporting decent construction and an easy draw, this cigar burns fairly straight and had an inch and half of silvery ash. The ash reminds me of a paper birch tree.

As for the flavor, the M1 starts mild, with a nutty undertone. There's a subtle spice flavor that saunters in, but never really establishes itself as a center of attention. In essence, it's a cigar for when you don't want to be too distracted by the cigar. The M1 is a nice, mild smoke at a nice, mild price.
