    Davidoff Robusto Intenso 2005 Review

    I've been posting reviews over in the Habanos section and haven't got around to posting reviews here, but this is a very special cigar so I'll do my best. I don't have my camera and I apologize because this is a beautiful cigar.

    My cigar shop forgot about these and found 5-6 10 count boxes when they were doing a bit of house cleaning. This cigar at 5x52 is bigger than I normally smoke as I tend to like anything from a 38 ring guage up to a 46 to 50. I made an exception because, to me, Davidoffs smoke well young and are very very good w/ a bit of age, and on top of that I've heard many good things about this cigar.

    As with most Davidoffs the construction was not good, not great but simply perfect. It cut well and the prelight was of aged tobacco with a bit of cedar, the wrapper was beautiful and the cap round, the bunch looked good and the cigar very firm.

    It was pretty quick to light, but as with anything 50rg or higher took a bit of work with the lighter. The first tastes were very refined and I could tell this was well aged Dominican tobacco and had a lot of cedar.

    As I smoked down the burn was razor sharp and the cigar became much more refined and complex. It had a very refined spice and was creamy and very earthy. IMO Dominican tobacco at it's very best, this continued for the length of the cigar.

    I'm not sure if it's worth the $15 paid, but I can say I've certainly smoked worse $15 Dominican cigars. I think I even like these better than most OpusX that I've smoked. I'd love to see if my Davidoff 2006 LE Robustos come along as well as these. This is very full bodied for a Davidoff and rates high among my favorites (Millinium, Special R, Special T, etc)

    Nice review - I finished my last of the box a few weeks ago and wished I had bought 2 boxes.Simply a great Dominican cigar IMO! Jerry

    I had two Robusto Intensos, and alas, they are no more. They were wonderful, exactly as you described.

    I am hoping that my new haul of 2007 Davidoff LE Puro Robustos hit the 2005 mark, and then some. They certainly look, feel, and smell the part. At 18.50, my hopes are high for a knockout! Maybe Ill smoke one this weekend and post my thoughts.

    Can you share the ID of your vendor? If they have 5 or 6 boxes (10 Count), I'd like to call them and see if I can purchase any. I'll use you as a referral, if that's okay! PM information if you can.

    I called and spoke with Dena. They are all gone, except for two sticks which they are holding for locals. I can understand that!

    Re: Davidoff Robusto Intenso 2005

    Werent these more of a 6-tobacco blend instead of being a Dominican Puro? I thought there were some rare tobacccos from Sri Lanka and Panama in the LE 05?

    I may have a source for the 2005's. Ill call them first, then post here if they have some left.

    In my opinion, this is the best Davidoff (non cuban). I have had about 25 of these smokes since thier release. The above review is on the mark. I think I have about 4 left in the humi.

    Great Review
