Reinado Cigars Robusto Review
Reinado Cigars Robusto - 5.5 X 50. Wrapper - Nicaragua, Binder - Nicaragua, Filler - Nicaragua. Medium bodied.
Initial taste - Toasty, bready cedar.
First third - Spicy cinnamon, bready/woody leather. Near the end of the first third a slight sweetness emerges.
Second third - Spicy woody leather, & sweet cinnamon continues with some notes of nuts.
Final third - Now there is a sweet, creamy and woody leather flavor (bordering on a creamy, coffee flavor), continued spiciness and hints of cinnamon. Very nice balance. Long finish of spice, leather and wood.
Burn on this cigar was razor sharp producing a light gray ash that held on for an inch at a time. Draw was perfect producing a good amount of smoke. Construction was good although the wrapper was delicate.
This was a very nicely balanced cigar with a lot of complexity. I really enjoyed this cigar and I would definitely have it in my regular rotation. MSRP is $8.00 for this size. Definite recommend. For more information take a look at their web site: www.reindocigars.com.
