ratings and scores


The flavors, thankfully, are much better than the burn. Some chocolate is noticeable from the beginning that is really tasty. A good amount of spice comes into the mix to give it a little kick. Some hints of nuts are detected, as is a tobacco flavor. There are also some sweet and creamy flavors that really make the cigar enjoyable. It does seem to fill the full-bodied profile, although some might view it as more of a medium-bodied stick.

The 100 Anos Robusto is a mixed bag. Some aspects are great, while others are not so great. The burn was quite disappointing, and made it hard to really enjoy the cigar. Having to constantly do touch-ups and re-light on occasion were a distraction from its great flavors. Perhaps that specific stick was a dud. Regardless, a full-bodied fan might enjoy it, burn issues aside. This is not a cigar for beginners, as it is too strong. The 100 Anos, as mentioned, is not the easiest cigar to find due to its limited production. The cigar comes out to around $10 for a single, and it also comes in boxes of 25. It's far from cheap, but it may be worth your time to try it on a trial basis.

The La Aurora 100 Anos Robusto earns a rating of 2.5 out of 4 stars.

Carmelo Blue Robusto

Honduras Caribbean Tobacco is the company behind the Carmelo Blue line of cigars. Honduras Caribbean's headquarters are based in Miami, but they have facilities in Honduras that help with the manufacture of their cigars. The company is quite young, getting their start in 2005, and their aim is to provide premium, yet affordable cigars to the public.

The Carmelo Blue Robusto measures 5 x 52. It also comes in several other sizes: the 4 x 40 Carmelito, the 5.5 x 44 Corona, the 6 x 54 Torpedo, the 6 x 52 Toro, the 6 x 60 Gordo, the 7 x 40 Lancero, and the 7 x 48 Churchill. The Blue is a Nicaraguan puro, made completely of Nicaraguan tobaccos. More specifically, the filler is a blend of tobaccos from Nicaragua's Esteli and Jalapa valleys. The binder also comes from the Jalapa Valley, as does the wrapper that tops it all off. The Blue Robusto is said to hover somewhere between medium and full-bodied in strength.
