The AJ Fernandez Mayimbe Robusto opened with an unexpected chocolate, leather, citrus, and bread note. This continued into the second-third, picking up some wood and pepper to liven things up. These flavors, in turn, stayed the course, as the stogie finished up by adding nuts and more chocolate and citrus goodness. Two touch-ups were required, and the ash was solid for quite a while - easily an inch and a half if not more. A great draw and even burn rounded it out to make this a truly pleasurable smoke.

This is a solid cigar - my only complaint really is the price. But sometimes - as is the case here - you get what you pay for, so I say the Mayimbe is 100% worth it. If you love a good cigar, have some money to spare, and 2 hours to just relax and enjoy the world, definitely give this one a go. If you have a friend that is just starting to smoke, toss him one of these - he'll be hooked for life, guaranteed.

The AJ Fernandez Mayimbe earns a rating of 3.75 out of four stars.

Asylum Straight Jacket Robusto

I love a cigar with character - not just in its flavor profile or its looks, but in its origin, back-story, or even just its name. The Asylum Straight Jacket (obviously) fits in with this motif. The whole Asylum Line is made up of some cool names - the Ogre, Schizo, and various versions of Asylum. Love it.

As the name implies, the Asylum line is known for its craziness - in terms of strength at any rate. The Asylum Straight Jacket is billed anywhere between full bodied to hyper full and I would be lying if I didn't say I was curious to see what that meant exactly.

What a good review on the Mayimbe.
So many of his cigars please me and I can't wait to try this one!
No buzz word or cult following is needed to sell these!
