Nestor Miranda Art Deco Robusto Grande Review
Nestor Miranda Art Deco Robusto Grande - 5.5 X 54. Wrapper - Nicaragua Corojo '96, Dual Binder - Dominican Criollo '98, Nicaragua Habano '00. Filler - Dominican & Nicaragua. Medium bodied.
Initial taste - A cedar wood and some spice.
First Third - Peppery spice, wood, cinnamon and some coffee notes.
Second Third - A creamy coffee sweetness develops, along with the pepper and notes of cinnamon and wood. Very nice balance.
Last Third - Creamy sweet coffee flavor continues with the tingly pepper spice, faint woodiness and a clove flavor emerges which gets stronger until the end of the cigar. Long finish of creamy sweetness and pepper spice.
Construction, burn and draw were excellent.
My favorite part of this cigar was the second third with the creamy sweetness and coffee flavor, along with the pepper. The last third I also enjoyed until the clove taste emerged. I know many like this particular flavor but it has never been one that I could enjoy. All in all a good cigar with a very nice MSRP on this vitola - $7.50. Give it a try.
