Iron Horse Robusto
5 x 50 - Maduro - Box of 20
Iron Horse cigars are made to offer a full-flavored, every day smoke at a sensible, every day price. Ecuadorian Sumatra wrappers cured to a dark, reddish Maduro conceal a blend of Dominican Cuban-seed Criollo '98 longfillers and Olor binders. Handmade in the DR by a small, boutique tabacalera, the smoke is rich, smooth, and impressively complex. If you're looking for an honest smoke at an honest price, giddy'up and ride an Iron Horse by adding a box or a 5-pack to your cart now.
Tried a couple of these in a sampler and they were absolutely terrible. Tasted like a harsh chemical.
Construction, Draw and Burn were all impressive. The taste, however, can only be described as vile! It was as though the cigars had been dipped in a can of varnish.
It s a nice cigar for the price, but a little bit harsh and not so good as Vindicator and Inferno! :
I ordered a 10 pack of these without sampling them first. I figured, if I like them, great. I ve got 10 solid cigars I didn t pay much for. If I don t? These will go to non-cigar smokers so they don t blaze through one of my nice sticks and not appreciate it. After smoking a few of these, I m not sure how these can get positive reviews. Construction, draw, burn are pretty good across the board, but the flavor is pretty rough. Not an enjoyable cigar at all. If you do enjoy this cigar, I d strongly suggest trying some higher end cigars and expanding your palette some. . . because these aren t good. Like others have said, there s an odd chemical flavor detectable in all of the ones I ve smoked. There is also no complexity and no change in the flavor as the smoke progresses. It s really too bad. . . I feel like these are ALMOST good. But there s this harsh, underlying dirt/chemical flavor that just ruins it. If they could adjust the blend to get that awful bite out of there, these could be very enjoyable. As for now, these will be going to the cigarette smokers that join me on my back porch.
