We’ve just entered March, and we’re kicking off the month here on Puff.com with cigar reviews of the Cult Classic and the Romeo y Julieta House of Montague.

Cult Classic Robusto

Cult is a boutique brand that is made in Esteli, Nicaragua.  Beyond its controversial name, there’s not a ton of info on the brand, and smoking the Classic is my first foray into its territory.  The Classic is the release that kicked off Cult’s history and is said to be smooth, yet flavorful at the same time.  From what I can tell, it has pretty good ratings, and that’s why I decided to smoke one of its Robusto offerings for today’s review.  Will smoking the Classic Robusto make me a “cult follower” of the brand?  It’s time to light it up and see.

The Cult Classic Robusto measures 5 x 50.  I chose the box-pressed version for this review, although it also comes in a regular Robusto format.  Other sizes in the line include the 6 x 50 Toro, 6 x 60 Grande Toro, and the 6.2 x 52 Torpedo.  The cigar’s composition begins with a filler of Nicaraguan tobaccos.  An Indonesian binder comes next, and an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper completes the composition.  As I mentioned in the introduction, the Cult Classic is considered to be a smooth cigar, and its strength is listed as being medium-bodied.

Looking at the Cult Classic Robusto, it's obvious that this is a cigar with solid construction and a pleasing overall appearance. I love the box-pressed shape, and the wrapper has a beautiful chocolate brown color and is oily in nature. There are a few very minor veins that are detected. A large decorative band sits near the head that showcases the Cult name in red surrounded by ornate graphics in a grey and white color scheme. The cigar is firm for the most part, but it does have just a bit of give in some areas when being pressed with my fingers. Before lighting, there's a slightly spicy aroma and a cold taste of chocolate.

The Cult Classic Robusto’s burn is satisfactory.  It’s not perfect, but no major problems to report either.  The cigar lights with ease and has a solid draw that’s on the easy side and produces plenty of smoke.  The gray ash is rather solid in nature.  A few quick touch-ups are necessary, but that’s it.  Smoking time sits around 1 hour and 20 minutes.
