Robusto

Tasting Note: A roundly box-pressed robusto that produces a salt-and-pepper ash as it burns. Earth and nutty flavors predominate this smoke, though it is not without some trace sweetness.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Dec 01, 2012
Score: 91
Beautifully pressed with a dark oily wrapper and neat cap. It burns and draws consistently well, maintaining an herbal character, yet imparting plenty of cocoa powder and nutty flavors.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Oct 01, 2008
Score: 92
Pressed and dark with a draw that delivers substantial smoke. The flavors are rich and complex with leather, nuts, black cherry and a balancing spiciness that resonates on the palate.

Issue: Cigar Insider, Feb 05, 2008
Score: 93
A supple, box-pressed cigar that draws very well. It is profoundly woody and leathery complemented by spicy, chewy notes that lead to a sweet liqueur finish.
