Drew Estate is well known for their innovative approach to infused cigars, and because of that their traditional lines of cigars don’t get very much attention. At least that’s my opinion. So today I’ll be smoking the Chateau Real Maduro, which is comes with a maduro wrapper from San Andres, Mexico.
The Chateau Real is a dark, nearly black, shade of brown. The wrapper has a slightly oily feel and few prominent veins. The cigar felt like it had a consistent bunch and there were no visible flaws with the cigar.
So I’ll fire up the cigar to see what it’s all about.

I think the Chateau Real is a nice cigar that would best be enjoyed in the morning with a cup of coffee. With that said, I actually recorded this review late at night after a big dinner, and I still felt the cigar had enough flavor and body to stand up to a full meal. I’d recommend this cigar to just about anyone, except someone looking for a spicy cigar. The Chateau Real is a medium bodied, that delivers a well balanced mix of flavors.
