Cuba Aliados MiamiI found mostly good construction on this Miami by Cuba Aliados; it was a little sloppy near the head and cap. There were some medium-sized veins and a little mottling, but overall it had an attractive, oily wrapper with a nice hay and barnyard aroma. The foot had rich cocoa notes as well as more barnyard. Prelight, I got flavors of natural tobacco, dried fruit and chili pepper.
Through the first third I got mild-to-medium body with flavors of hay and bread. The same continued for the second third without much change...and to be honest the final segment was not much of a departure, either--there may have been a little leather creeping in, but that's about it.
All in all, this was not a "bad" smoke, but neither was it particularly good--I had no urge to either put it out early or run out and buy more. A good, solid middle-of-the-road stick in almost every way, I would probably only smoke it again if I were handed it at an event or if the selection was extremely limited.
