El Primer Mundo Epifania Robusto Review
El Primer Mundo Epifania Robusto - 5 X 50. Wrapper - Ecuadorian Habano, Binder - Nicaragua, Filler - Dominican Republic & Nicaragua. Medium bodied.
Initial lighting taste - Spicy, dry woodiness.
First third - Spicy with a flowery, floral taste, wood and some caramel notes.
Second third - Spice, floral, woodiness and caramel notes. Very nice balance - smooth.
Last third - Spice continues with the flowery floral flavor, wood and caramel. Moderately long finish of spice and wood.
Construction - Pretty brown wrapper with a slight sheen. No major veins or soft spots were visible. Triple capped which is always nice to see. Burn - sharp burn with a dark gray solid ash. Draw was perfect.
An excellent cigar with a unique flavor profile that was both complex and very well balanced. The floral notes were very enjoyable with the spice and wood. The Robusto size is not available yet so there isn't an MSRP for it but the Toro size is $10.00 available in Toronto. Definite recommend.
