Flor De Gonzalez 90 Miles Robusto Review
Flor De Gonzalez 90 Miles Robusto 5.5 X 50. Wrapper - Ecuador (Habano Rosado), Binder - Nicaragua, Filler - Nicaragua. Medium bodied.
Initial taste - Woody with some spice.
First Third - Oak, spice and notes of cinnamon. Nicely balanced.
Second Third - Oak wood, spice, and now some delightful leather & coffee flavor emerges as well as some cocoa. Very smooth.
Last third - Now the cigar has progressed into a woody leather & coffee taste with the underlying spice and the very enjoyable cocoa flavor. Long finish of woody leather and spice.
Construction, burn and draw was very good.
This is a very good cigar for any time of the day. It had a very enjoyable flavor profile with excellent complexity and balance. MSRP for this size is $5.50 which makes it a very good value. I recommend trying especially if you are looking for a cigar that can be enjoyed in the morning as your first cigar of the day, or even after a substantial meal in the evening.
