Tasting Note: The top growers of Mexican San Andrés wrapper leaf also produce an outstanding cigar—the Casa Turrent Serie 1901. It's named after the Turrent family, prolific producers of Mexican tobacco and creators of the Te-Amo brand, a value-cigar. Previous attempts by the Turrents to break into the upper echelons of the premium sector weren't terribly successful. That's changed. The Casa Turrent Serie 1901 launched on the international market in 2013, but didn't arrive in the U.S. until August 2015. Casa Turrent is the only cigar brand that carries the Turrent name in its title (in 2014, brand owner Alejandro Turrent discontinued all his other Turrent-branded lines). He aims to position Casa Turrent as his company's flagship premium brand. Judging by the performance of the Casa Turrent 1901 Robusto, he seems well on his way.

A dark, pressed robusto. Each puff envelops the palate with cocoa powder and coffee before a sweet, luxurious finish redolent of caramel and black cherry.
