The fine folks over at Cigar Weekly have reviewed the Martinez Flatiron Maduro. Cigar Weekly.com is a web site that has two primary functions and a multitude of great benefits. First they are to provide information for consumers and enthusiasts, and second to give manufacturers an outlet to let their fans know what they are up to, to announce new offerings etc.
The inspiration for the site came in the Fall 1997 issue of Smoke Magazine, Lew Rothman, then President of JR-CIGARS, wrote:
“…today’s premium cigar smokers are demanding more and more information about the cigars, and the people who make them. To the readers of this and other magazines, premium cigars are more than just a product; they are an insatiable passion.”
We are very happy to have them review the Martinez Flatiron Cigar. Below is a briefing of their review.
“Martinez Cigar’s Flatiron Maduro is a handsome cigar. It has a dark brown Ecuadorian shade-grown Habano wrapper with a matte finish, and is very smooth to the touch. The binder is Nicaraguan Broadleaf. This is a finely constructed cigar, sporting a very sharp box press with tight seams, small veins and uniform leaves. The filler is a proprietary blend of 5-year-old Nicaraguan leaves.
Using the Cigar Weekly scoring system, here’s what I thought of the Flatiron:
Pre-light – 9
Light – 9
Draw – 9
Flavor – 8
Power – 8
Average – 8.67
The Flatiron continues to honor Don Antonio’s memory and tradition of crafting ultra-premium cigars. The Flatiron Maduro provides a rich, complex, and superiorly flavorful smoke that, as a small batch cigar, should cast a long shadow in the premium cigar world – an iconic past and a bright future ahead for Martinez Cigars.
I recommend it.”
