"The Pinnacle of Maduro Greatness"
Prelight draw tastes like espresso and raisins. This cigar is not for the faint of heart. Strong coffee and unsweetened chocolate flavors underscored by a subtle sweetness. 1/3 of the way through hints of black pepper and cardomom surface tapering into subdued vanilla by the last 1/3. STRONG but smooth and mellow. DON'T RUSH THIS CIGAR. The Robusto is about a 1.5 hour smoke. Small burn issue. Burned crooked until 1/2 way but corrected itself without incident. I was enjoying this cigar TOO much to worry about touching it up. When I began smoking cigars THIS was the flavor I was seeking as my ultimate experience. If any Maduro lovers out there are having a midlife crisis this cigar will do the trick. I'll be keeping a few of these around for the most special of occasions.
