"Cigar rolling is a science"

Review Notes: With this cigar I got to experience how important the blend of tabacco is in cigars and how important it is that they burn even to get a balanced flavor. This one started of with very peppry notes and it was very flavor full. After the first ash was dumped in the ashtray it really got going and the flavor then reminded me of grilled mushrooms that my grandmother makes. Then it turned bad, I mean really horrible, it was so bitter that I was about to chuck it. But then I reminded myself that it's not an ordinary cigar and that I actually paid quite a lot for this one so I decided to stick with it. By this point I was about halfway and the cigar was about to go out. So I dumped the second ash and then I saw something I hadn't seen or at least noticed before, The cigar had started to burn towards the center and not burning the outer layers or the wrapper so it had left a big hole. So I figure that the tobacco in the center was the bitter part and since it was the only part burning the cigar had become awfully bitter. I relight it and was hoping for the best. And man what a difference! Now it was balanced, creamy and all the nice flavors and then some came back. Now what I can say is that I kind of understand the science of cigar rolling. So because of this I can't say that the construction was great and because of a vein in the wrapper it wasn't to pretty either, But I like to think that those kind of imperfections gives the cigar character. Overall, a great experience and I have another in the humidor so I'm just hoping that it will be better constructed and still deliver the same great flavors. If you can, try it! I always say that you should try as many cigars as possible, because you never know when you might find a favorite. This wasn't my favorite but it could be yours.

"Immature?"

Review Notes: Opinion based on smoking 20 out of a box of 25 purchased in late 2006. Dull and almost Maduro in appearance—however, every cigar has residual glue around the labels and cap. Soft feel—not tightly packed. Softness got more spongy during entire smoke. Great aroma out of the box. First draw is almost like earth mixed with 90% dark chocolate & burnt toast. Lack of pronounced spices. Not a typical MC, except for the start. Overpowering at the beginning (definitely high nicotine). Smoke mellowed out about the half way point. Uneven burn throughout—needed fixing. Recommendation: Not worth the price or smoke experience now. However, I have another box (same date) that I will let mature until next year. Who knows, these might be like a fine wine—gets better with age?

Review Notes: A gift of my boss for bonus day (meant to partially set the disappointment off...) this Robusto Ltd Edition is good, well built and fairly flavoured, although not dramatically so. The typical Montecristo flavous come in a bit distant. I believe it would have needed some more time to age. A lot of smoke and impeccable construction, though.

Review Notes: Just got some from friend that went to Cuba. Tough to find but well worth it. Draw is a little tight. Great chocolate and spice with lots of traditional Cuban flavor. Quite strong, will age well. Highly recommend.

"A good solid cigar"

Review Notes: I have smoked many non cubans and now that I have smoked this cuban cigar, I have to say that it was a very good cigar, but not better than some of the top tier non cubans. This cigar's flavor is a medium tobacco flavor with hints of pepper and toast. Draw was perfect as well as construction.
