Taking a look at the Maduro Robusto, it's hard to ignore its extremely dark wrapper. It's almost black, and definitely stands out from the crowd. The wrapper is oily and rather toothy as well. Some medium-sized veins are noticeable throughout the cigar. The cigar is firm for the most part and a tad lumpy in some areas. The large band near the head is very attractive. It has some gold accents that surround the Carlos Torano and Casa Torano labels. The gold really stands out against the dark wrapper and helps boosts the cigar's overall appearance. Torano promised a sweet cigar with this Maduro, and if it's pre-light aroma is any indication, they will hold true to their promise. The cold taste, meanwhile, is of rich chocolate. The aroma and cold taste alone have me excited to grab my lighter and put this baby to the test.

Once lit, the Casa Torano Maduro Robusto burns well. The burn stays even on its own with the exception of just one touch-up. The draw is good. The ash is very long and gray. In fact, the ash on this cigar is one of the most solid that I have come across.

A nice bouquet of flavors are presented, and really make the Maduro Robusto an enjoyable smoke. There's a good dose of sweetness that is initially detected. It's almost like sweet fruit that is similar to a burst of cherries. A rich nutty flavor mixes in with the sweetness in the first third to give a nice introduction. The second third transitions into some wood and chocolate. The final third is characterized by a bit of spice that gives the cigar a miniature kick.

As you can tell, I enjoyed Casa Torano Maduro Robusto. What's not to like? Although there is plenty of flavor, the cigar may be to smooth for experienced smokers seeking something with power. Beginners or those who love smooth cigars should find it to be to their liking, however. If you enjoy Maduro cigars, this one should be on your to-do list. It's strength and flavor suits it for earlier in the day, and it would make a great complement to your daily dose of morning coffee. A single costs around $5, and that's a great price for such a quality stick. You can also find it in packs of five or boxes of 20. Definitely pick one up if you want a sweet and tasty smoking treat for not a lot of money.

The Casa Torano Maduro Robusto earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.
