The most noticeable aspect of the Covenant Robusto is its beautiful box-pressed shape. The construction of the cigar seems to be executed to perfection. There are a few small veins that are visible on the chocolate brown wrapper, but that is it. The cigar is firm to the touch with zero soft spots. The top decorative band is dark blue/black with silver accents. It features the Esteban Carreras name and the logo of a lion.  The band beneath it displays the Covenant name over a white and silver color scheme. Both bands add a nice aesthetic touch. Before putting it into action, the cigar has a spicy cold taste and a bit of an aroma of coffee.

After lighting, the Esteban Carreras Covenant continues to impress with its burn. The draw is easy. Long gray ash is formed. The burn is even for the entire duration of the smoke, and zero touch-ups or relights are needed. Smoking time surpasses the one hour mark.

There's a good amount of flavor packed into Covenant Robusto that makes it very enjoyable to smoke. The cigar begins with a spicy pepper that awakens my senses. The second third continues with more pepper that gives way to coffee, cocoa, and cream. Strength hits the full-bodied mark here.  The final third transitions to cocoa, wood, and cream.  

Esteban Carreras has made a believer out of me with the Covenant Robusto.  The cigar impressed in every area: appearance, burn, and flavor.  The variety of flavors was particularly interesting.  This is a good pickup for fans of Nicaraguan puros or anyone looking for a cigar that’s full-bodied and full-flavored.  A single sells for $6 to $7, and you can also find it in boxes of 24.

The Esteban Carreras Covenant Robusto earns a rating of 3.75 out of four stars.
