Aging Room Maduro "Rondo" Robusto Review

Aging Room Maduro "Rondo" Robusto - 5 X 50. Wrapper - Nicaraguan Maduro, Binder - Dominican Havano - Nicaragua, Filler - Dominican Havano. Full bodied.

Initial taste - Peppery spice & Oak wood.

First third - Spice, citrus earthiness, wood & some sweet notes.

Second third - Spice continues along with a tangy cirrus, caramel sweetness, earth and woody notes.
Last third - Spice, citrus, caramel, earthiness and oak wood notes - very smooth.

Construction - Beautiful darkish brown colored wrapper with a smooth silky sheen texture with no major veins. Excellent cap construction.

Burn - Razor sharp burn with a black & gray colored, solid ash that holds on.

Draw - Perfect draw with plenty of smoke produced.

An excellent full bodied cigar with impressive complexity and wonderful balance - I really enjoyed the spicy citrus with the sweet caramel flavors. Construction as always with Aging Room cigars is perfect . Best enjoyed after a full meal. MSRP for this vitola is $8.68 which this cigar is more than worth. Very highly recommended.
