Well hello again folks! I come to you this evening bearing a review of the Super Fuerte Natural Robusto from Indian Tabac. Here's the set-up! Lotus Vertigo double torch lighter and my little cigar notebook that is starting to bear the proof of a whole lot of smoking... lol
The pre-light was great. The cigar felt perfect in hand, decently packed with tobacco and a little give. It seems par for the course for this cigar to be consistantly well constructed. I punched it this time, ensuring to only remove the cap and not venture to deeply. There was a very free draw and complex aroma.
The first third started off strong, bringing tobacco and wooden flavor through a very giving draw. There was a subtle spice note dancing around in the background, primarily just accenting the main body of flavor.
The 2nd third still saw a little spice at the back of the crowd along with the familiar tobacco flavor profile. However, now a little leather has come to play in a big way. The smoke has maintained it's strength up to the halfway point and there is now a distinguishable earthen flavor joining the mix. As I near the last third, the earthen tones kick it up a notch bringing a nice little bite with them.
The last third of this smoke saw an ever increasing reduction to the wooden profile traded in for what felt to me like an ever increasing toasty flavor. Now the spice starts to gradually pick up a hair and this puppy is finishing with some pretty decent pep in it's step. I took it further than this picture shows. Every time I went to put it down, I had to have just one more puff. Nubbed the heck out of this bad boy.
I bought a box of these a while back on auction and believe I paid roughly $35 for them. I feel compelled to note that while just over $1 a stick, this is truly a great cigar. Always consistent quality for me, strong flavors and most importantly it just contributes to a really pleasent experience for me. It is a hair stronger than I normally venture for, but it never leaves me with anything less than a smile.
