Pedro Martin Corojo Robusto Review
Pedro Martin Corojo Robusto - 5 X 50. Wrapper - Nicaraguan Corojo, Binder - Nicaraguan Corojo, Filler - Nicaraguan Corojo. Medium - Full bodied.
Initial taste - Cedar.
First third - Cinnamon spice, cedar and leather.
Second third - Spice, cinnamon and the leather flavor is now becoming a tangy, citrusy leather. Some sweet notes as well. Cedar has pretty much faded away at this point.
Last third - Spice, tangy leather and some hints of a sweetness. Long finish of citrusy leather and spiciness.
Construction - Nice looking wrapper, slight oily sheen with no major veins. The wrapper however, is very delicate. Burn - Very good burn with a salt & pepper colored ash that really holds on and doesn't want to fall off. Draw - draw was good.
A wonderful cigar with the flavor profile that I really like (spice & tangy leather) The balance and complexity was very good as well. Maria Martin who blended this cigar, was formerly the National Sales Manager for Camacho Cigars but has now returned to the family business of her father Pedro Martin. Although a Nicaraguan puro, the leaf for the wrapper, binder and filler come from different regions in Nicaragua. The MSRP for this vitola is $6.80. A definite recommend.
