Don Rosa Cigars Robusto Review
Don Rosa Cigars Robusto - 5 X 50. Wrapper - Nicaraguan Jalapa Sun Grown, Binder - Sumatra, Filler - Panama Viso, Mexico Ligero & Seco Esteli. Medium bodied.
Initial taste - Oak.
First third - Oak wood, leather, spice and cinnamon.
Second third - Now the leather has taken the forefront followed by cinnamon and spice.
Last third - Leather and now the cinnamon picks up followed by spice. Long finish of cinnamon spice and leather.
Construction - Attractive oily brown and smooth wrapper. Burn was straight with a solid gray ash. Draw was perfect with just the right amount of smoke.
An enjoyable cigar that could be an everyday cigar if you really like cinnamon flavor. The complexity was good but the balance was a bit off as the cinnamon spice flavor was too strong at times. A cigar best enjoyed midday. Maybe recommend for an everyday cigar depending on the price.
