Review Notes: Like most Pepin fare, this robusto starts with a jolt of pepper before settling into its leathery core. Nuts and wood emerge, and body remains med-full throughout. For whatever reason, this size doesn't seem as balanced as other Ws I've had. Perhaps these are little younger than the other sizes in the sampler? Finally, you may have read that the ligero-heavy Ws and Habana Leons should be stored at lower RH. I'm finding that to be good advice. This one was stored at 67% RH, and the fill wanted to burn faster than the wrapper and binder. Required minor touchups to prevent tunneling. 65% or slightly below is probably optimal for these.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (6) No (9)
