Here we have a Pirate's Gold No. 4 by Rolando Reyes Sr. from Honduras, weighing in at 5.5x44. The Pirate's Gold brand has been made by several manufacturers in as many different countries, with this particular Honduran-grown version no longer being produced. Apparently after this version was released, production was moved to the Dominican Republic and fell by the wayside. Production has since been moved to Nicaragua and I've yet to read or hear any reviews of the Nicaraguan version.
This Honduran version, now years out of production, has recently surfaced on CBid and has been going for between three to five dollars per five-pack. I purchased a five-pack a couple of months ago, smoking a couple doing yard work and giving as many or more away. This particular cigar being reviewed happens to be a gift from our very own Walt (thanks again Walt).
While this particular cigar is listed as a maduro, this is by far the lightest colored maduro I have ever seen. The five-pack I purchased a few months ago was very similar in color and also advertised as maduro. I can't imagine how light the natural must be. If asked to guess, I would probably say this is a corojo wrapper based on the reddish hue.
Pre-light the wrapper is very smooth with only a few small veins. The cap cut cleanly revealing a slightly tight draw but nothing to be concerned about. The foot toasted quickly and the first few draws gave a mild tobacco flavor with a medium body. The burn was clean and straight leaving behind a gray-white ash that held easily over an inch.
