Pedro Martin "Ruby" Robusto Review

Pedro Martin Ruby Robusto - 5 X 50. Wrapper - Corojo, Binder - Nicaragua, Filler - Nicaragua. Medium - full bodied. Blended by Maria Martin formerly the National Sales Manager for Camacho Cigars but has now returned to her family business of her father Pedro Martin.

Initial taste - Cedar.

First third - Spiciness, leather and a nice tea-like flavor.

Second third - Spice, leathery tea, some cedar notes and a slight sweetness.

Last third - Spice, leather, tea and hints of sweetness and cedar. Long finish of leather & tea.

Construction was very good - reddish-brown wrapper, slight oily sheen with a couple of visible veins. Burn was razor sharp with a light gray solid ash. Draw was perfect with a good amount of smoke.

A very good cigar with a nice smooth balance and complexity. I particularly enjoyed the tea-like flavor with the leather and spice - very nice. MSRP on this size is $6.66 which is a very good value in my opinion. Two thumbs up for this cigar.
