El Titan de Bronze - Redemption Maduro

Maybe I'm a sucker for theology, but the 'Redemption Maduro' practically jumped off the shelf and into my hands as I was browsing the local shop. A chocolate brown wrapper, with demure veining, is the hook for me. It turns out that the Redemption is using a San Andres, Mexican, wrapper to jacket a Nicaraguan binder and fillers. Hey, that combo sounds familiar... oh CAIN MADURO, and I love that stick!

Unlike the Cain, Redemption is not billing itself as a ligero bomb with a fratricidal reputation. However, the flavor profile is similar, minus a good deal of the spice; Predominantly earthy flavors, with hints of coffee and bitter, dark chocolate. There's a little spice in the finish, and gives the impression of being a medium-bodied cigar. After an inch or so, earth and leather flavors are the most noticeable.

All in all, the El Titan de Bronze 'Redemption Maduro' is a tasty, decently made cigar. It tasted better than the Petrus cigars (Felipe Gregorio) I had. But, I can't knock the Petrus; I know who holds the Keys to the Kingdom.
