"DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED WITH THIS STICK..."
I don't know what happened with this stick but, as I was twisting my punch into it, it literally EXPLODED. It didn't appear to be dry on inspection, and felt OK, but man this thing cracked all the way down from head to foot! I did try to at least taste it and from what I could tell, it was for sure full flavored and a bit strong. Although it was in my humi for over a month, I will let the other 4 rest a while longer and see what happens. Hopefully it was just a bad stick.

Part of a freebe sampler, I figured on burning a "rocket" while my prizes relaxed in the humi for a few weeks. WOW! I was suprised right away with the flavor. The last 3rd got a little bitter, but I can't wait to age some of these and try them again. Can't score over 50 on consistency, unfortunately I only had one.

"I am thrilled"
This is a very enjoyable, good looking and well made cigar. Good draw and the tasty corojo wrapper is very evident. Tastes similar to some Cubans which I have enjoyed. I smoke these down till I feel my fingers burn!! I will not hesitate to get more of these

"Decent, but a bit too plain for me"
Got this in a sampler and it seemed decent, but it was a bit too plain for me to specifically buy again.

"Similar to ITSF"
So similar, in fact, in flavor and appearance, that if you removed the band and gave me one I would swear it was an Indian Tabac Super Fuerte. Of course, that isn't a bad thing.

"Not so good"
Received the Robusto in a sampler pack with my main order. I've only somked one, so the fact that my sample was partially plugged and drew poorly should be taken with a grain of salt. That said, it had a degree of that "earthy" Nicaraguan flavor that I don't care for (but that lots of other people do). On the positive side, it's a great-looking box pressed cigar.

"FSS obtains a winner!"
Aspira Corojo Robusto is a wonderful cigar. It is well made and very smooth. I am totally satisfied with this cigar. Sweet tasting and never harsh. I look forward to the next one. Thanks!
