While it’s a tale of so far, so good, for the Cameroon Robusto, things get even better in the flavor department. Notes of sweetness and coffee give the Robusto a solid start. In particular, there’s a caramel flavor that is among the best I have experienced. The second third builds off of the solid start with mild spice and leather. More spice, nuts, and caramel give the Cameroon Robusto a solid final farewell.

The Rocky Patel Vintage 2003 Cameroon Robusto is one of the best cigars I have had. I really cannot find fault with any of its aspects. From the start, I was impressed with the presentation, and that positive impression continued with the burn and flavor. What does all this stogie goodness cost? Only $6 per single, which makes this a must-buy, especially if you are a follower of Rocky Patel or enjoy Cameroon wrappers. In fact, go a head and pick up a box of 20. You won’t be disappointed.

The Rocky Patel Vintage 2003 Cameroon Robusto earns a rating of four out of four stars.

CAO OSA Sol Lot 54

CAO officially launched the OSA Sol line at the 2011 IPCPR show in Las Vegas. OSA stands for the Olancho San Agustin valley region in Honduras, which is where the cigar’s special wrapper was plucked from.

The OSA Sol Lot 54 measures 6 x 54. CAO also offers the line in the following sizes: the 5 x 50 Lot 50 and the 6 ½ x 58 Lot 58. Nicaraguan and Honduran tobaccos occupy the cigar’s filler, which is concealed by a Connecticut Broadleaf binder. Last, but certainly not least, is a rare Olancho San Agustin wrapper that comes from a special 2008 CAO crop. The ideal climate conditions during that year allowed the leaf to accumulate oils that help to give the Sol its supposedly rich flavor and aroma. In terms of strength, the OSA Sol is said to be medium-bodied.
