This is the second cigar sent to me by the good people at to review. It is another offering from C&C Cigars. The LRMD is their maduro offering and is the one I am most excited to try, as I love a maduro wrapper on a cigar. So let's get to the important part, the cigar. The LRMD has Habano Maduro wrapper, Dominican binder, and a blend of Dominican Ligero as the filler. The rustic wrapper had some lighter brown spots along the length of the body. The veins were very small and the seams near invisible. The wrapper had a barnyard and compost aroma, and the foot offered notes of dry cocoa powder with a hint of sweetness. The body is firm and well packed with no soft spots or visible flaws. I clipped the triple cap with my Xikar MTX and found a perfect draw with some sweet hay and earthy notes on the cold draw. I used a single flame torch to toast the foot and get things going. It is very rare that I get to enjoy a cigar when the sun is out, so this was a real treat for me even though the wind was raging. The initial third opens with some oaky wood notes, cocoa, cooking spice, and a mile maduro sweetness. The cooking spice seems to change with each puff, if this keeps up for the burn this promises not to be a boring chuchill by the end. The finish is long and woody with hints of cocoa lingering on the palate. The second third brings in some coffee notes to join the oak, cocoa, and spices. The mild sweetnes of the maduro wrapper really ties the flavors together nicely. As I go into the final third the coffee notes find a little more depth. The notes of oak, cocoa, and coffee are going strong as the spices start to fade into the background. This was a more complex smoke than I had anticipated for the price point. It started medium body for the first third and finished the last two thirds with a medium-full body. The ash held to around an inch at a time even in the roaring winds I endured while smoking the LRMD. The price point on the LRMD in churchill size is around 4.75. C&C cigars also have a corojo and a bargain line called Roll Back. The LRMD and the Connecticut were both very enjoyable smokes, so I can bet the Corojo and the Roll Back will be also. Thanks again to Sheryl and for partnering up with me and providing the sticks for the C&C reviews. Stogieboys has the LRMD Churchill available in singles, 5 packs, and boxes of 18.
