The 1968 Robusto has an attractive appearance and looks to be well constructed.  The wrapper has a dark, oily sheen to it with some very precise veins throughout the body.  The band near the head of the cigar is a nice touch.  The band showcases an artistic logo with the company name and the date 1968 below it.  A sharp combination of primarily black and gold adds a sophisticated overall look to the stogie.  Prior to lighting, the cigar gives off a scent and cold taste of tobacco.

The burn is pretty even for the most part, and it’s accompanied by a smooth draw and solid, light-colored ash.  Macanudo claims that the 1968 provides seasoned cigar smokers with an “unexpected” experience, when it comes to its flavor, and this is pretty true, as this does deliver as a full-bodied cigar.  There is a good amount of cedar flavor, not only in the beginning, but throughout the cigar.  It is joined by some creamy and nutty notes, as well as some leather.  Chocolate, cocoa, and pepper also appear before the cigar is finished.

Macanudo was successful in switching things up a bit with the 1968 Robusto.  The burn is solid and the flavors back up its claim to being full-bodied.  Singles are available for around $8 each and they are also sold in boxes of 20.  Even if you are not a fan of Macanudos, give the 1968 a shot, as its new foray into the full-bodied world may surprise you.  On the other hand, Macanudo fans who enjoy the standard medium-bodied profile associated with the brand may find this cigar too overbearing.   The Macanudo 1968 Robusto receives a rating of three out of four stars.

I hope you enjoyed my reviews of the VL Gran Churchill and the 1968 Robusto.  Until next time, keep those lighters busy!
