$3. - $5.20
Robusto Extra 5.5 x 50
Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro
Prelight: Hay, cherries, bread dough, solidly built cigar with some weight to it.
Creamy coffee flavor, light spice, leather, roasted nuts, earth, nutmeg, light black licorice, medium body.
Draw a little tight, nice start though.
Perfect straight burn line, creamy sweet now, followed by the coffee flavor, light spice, leather, roasted nuts, earth, nutmeg, light black licorice and sweet, the flavors work together completely for this cigar very well.
Draw has opened up now.....
This is turning out to be a surprising stick and even right off the UPS truck, time in the humidor is going to be a treat.
Love the light black licorice and sweetness here, all of the above notes still with the symphony in 7 part harmony, getting a Vitamin N buzz now.
The addition of the Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper is key here I think, my favorite wrapper for sure.
Smoke time: 1hr 20 min
Score: 9.5 out of 10 (not a 10 because I wanted it to go on)
