La Estrella Cubana (Oscuro?!) - Please help me clarify!

Hello there!

I just bought some La Estrella Cubana robustos.

I then noticed some sites also label them La Estrella Cubana OSCURO.

Are they the same cigar? The same blend and everything? Mine didn't have the "oscuro" at the end.

Clearly I'm confused and hoping the cigars I bought are the La Estrella Cubana Oscuros that I read are supposed to be great.

Thanks for the clarification!

From what I can tell, it's the same. Oscuro in spanish means dark and as I understand it is the term applied to exceptionally dark maduro wrappers. The word Maduro references "wrapper leaves which have been exposed longer in the field and grown extra dark, and/or which have been sweated longer in the fermentation process to become darker and yield a sweeter taste"
