The HVC La Rosa 520 Maduro Limited Edition Magicos cigar debuted last year at the IPCPR. The secondary band says, “Magicos 54 Capa Madura”, a nod to the 54 ring gauge and maduro wrapper. Leather and tobacco jumped out on the cold draw. The first third delivered coffee and cocoa blasts. These flavors toned down, and the second third transitioned to earth and toast. Coffee and cream closed things out. Pepper stayed consistent on the retrohales. Canoes plagued the La Rosa on two different occasions, hurting the overall score. Perhaps another sample would prove better.
