"What a great Smoke"
The Cohiba Robusto is tops. Medium strength smoke. From the first draw, you know this is gonna be good. Not spicy, not harsh, but not too mild either, just right. It has that perfect tobacco taste I'm looking for. Nice.

I have been extremely happy with all my Famous-Smokes. That said, this Cohiba Robusto (Natural) I received as part of a sampler pack was just terrible. The wrapper was quite veiny and the cap construction was not up to par for a hand made premium cigar. The cigar lit/burnt unevenly. But most importantly, it didn't taste good at all - absolutely dull. Because of the premium name, I smoked WAY too much before finally giving up 2/3 through. There are far superior smokes for less money - I will not be smoking any more of these.

"Tasty but overrated"
Certainly a fine, flavorful and smooth cigar with fine construction, but $12.50 retail, give me a break. I pick them up at reasonable prices in FSS sampler packs and probably wouldn't buy them any other way.

The discription sums it up well.If I could afford to make these my every day cigars,I would do it in a New York minute ,and would not think twice about it.

"A Little Pricey"
In my opinion there are better tasting cigars on the market. However, I have never seen a Red Dot Cohiba burn crooked, fall apart, or go out. I have smoked probably about 10 robusto size of these in the past 2 years all purchased from Famous in a variety of samplers. They all tasted the same, and burned the same. The whole cigar tastes the same from light up to last puff. The best part about these is the construction. Odds are if you buy a box you wont have any bad ones as it should be for the price. I think I will take my chances on brands like Padron, Rocky Patel Vintage, and LGC for half the price.

"Buy something else"
I've been storing a couple Robusto Naturals in my humidor for months, saving 'em for when I needed a really good smoke. Tried one tonight and it took 1/3 of my lighter fuel to get it going. The draw was okay, the burn okay, the ash was firm, the smoke never had a harsh taste, and it generally had good manners, but it was bland! It got slightly better at midpoint (from mediocre to mediocre-plus). I did detect a nutty toasty aroma, but nuthin' compared to real nuts and toast. The cheap and mediocre bundle cigar I had earlier in the day at least had some complexity and perhaps some intrigue. I hope they're not all like this!

"Cohiba for the first time"
A friend expressed the joy of a real good cigar. I bought a sample pack and was most pleased with the taste and aroma of the Cohiba Robusto 5x49. I recomend this particular cigar because it burns even and does not take all day to enjoy.

"The Good, The Bad and The Ugly"
I have had Cohibas before and wasn't really impressed with them so when I recieved a 3 pack as a gift I figured that they purchased because of their name. I let them sit for about about a month because I thought they seemed a bit dry.
The GOOD- I fired up the first one and was TOTALLY AMAZED! It was GREAT! Wonderful flavor with a creamy touch. Huge clouds of white bellowy smoke. Great construction, even perfect burn. I smoked it down to a "finger burner".
The BAD- About a week later, fired up the second it was amazing too, Amazingly bad! It tasted like a combination of plastic and dog crap. It was bad and it plugged off so I tossed it. As for the third, OK, nice flavor but nothing special.
The UGLY-The amount of money someone paid for those cigars. One of them was worth it but the rest weren't. I think that for the price tag of Cohibas you can get better that are a lot less money.

I have smoked a variety of premium cigars and was looking forward to this Cohiba, but I was disappointed. It was OK but I sure didn't see what all the hype was about. In my opinion it's overpriced and you are paying for the name! Not a bad smoke at all, but I will pay way less for Maria Guerrero and enjoy them more.

This is one of those cigars that is all name. The cigar is a pleasant smoke at best. I would consider the flavor is one dimensional, very earthy taste. The smoke is medium in strength yet it does have a great name. Everyone knows the name so if you are out Golfing and you want to soften you clients up give them a Cohiba red dot!
