La Musa Mousa the Grimalkin reborn.  For those of you who have been a fan of Emilio Cigars for some time now, you may remember a fantastic cigar called the Grimalkin.  You know the one, it had the band with the set of cats eyes on it.  Anyways, Emilio Cigars decided a little while back that it was time to rebrand the Grimalkin into what is now known as the La Musa Mousa.

Now, if you ask Nate McIntyre, he’ll tell you a story about how I asked him what this cigar was.  I don’t read Greek, so when I looked at it I asked in my best relocated yankee southern accent, “Is this La Musa “Movoa” the new Grimalkin?”  To which he corrected me, and told me the proper spelling and to learn Greek, which I replied, “this is Merica, you should write Merican”  (Inside joke).

The cigar itself is a very good looking cigar, if it wasn’t, I probably would not have wanted to smoke it…  This cigar sports a Nicaraguan Habano Rosado wrapper that is medium in color and has a very nice oily shine to it.  The band of this cigar is simple and elegant.

Hello flavor, much like the Grimalkins I have smoked before, this rebranded La Musa Mousa is full of flavor.  The cigar gives off some woody notes, as well as, some cocoa, leather, and pepper flavorings.  The cigar is a great example of what a good Nicaraguan puro can taste like.

Burn was very good overall.  I did dry box this cigar for a day prior to smoking, which in my opinion always helps.  The ash of this cigar was firm and held quite well.  The smoke was thick and white.

Buy it?  Mmmhmmm.  I was a big fan of the Grimalkin and have bought many more than I care to admit, I may still have some. (Shhh don’t tell anyone)  This cigar is of course everything that cigar was.  If you are looking for a good medium bodied cigar with that little bit of pepper kick to it, give the La Musa Mousa a try.  If not, try it anyway, it’s good.
