I received this cigar in the 5-pack 'sample F' package. I rated it by trying to enjoy only one cigar which may not be a fair test as I believe a rating should be based on 3 or more cigars. Anyway, the draw was like drawing through an open straw. It would stop burning if allowed to 'rest' for more than 60 seconds and then it was difficult to relight as it was rolled with very little tobacco. I enjoy mild/medium cigars, but this one had nothing to it. The band indicates 'premium imported cigars' -- I'd say it wouldn't even rate as a 'second'. The best thing about this cigar is the band.

Burn is very uneven - 0ne-sided.Draw and appearance good. Construction is rather loose. Taste is descent but I hope you come out with a maduro w/ CT wrapper. Consistency is keyed to the above remarks. Since the robusto is a test market stick, it needs some more attention before you hit the street with the other shapes. All in all, it is a notch better than the old ones.

"If you like mild this cigar is for you."
I had A pleasant time with this cigar, but it was definitely on the mild side for me. Still it had A light nuttiness and spice that makes it worthy for consideration if you want A light and mild cigar.
