"Another Jewel from La Aurora"
YOU MUST AGE THIS CIGAR. This is very mild by my taste I have been smoking cigars for 10 years. I have tried almost every cigar out on the market from 1950's pre-embargo. To Cigars infused with the finest cognac. I recommend aging this cigar a min of 6 months to a year. In a good quality humidor. This cigar has a very spicey peppery taste. I recommend this cigar with Black label. This will even your palate and ensure for a smooth smoke.

My first impression of the Leon Jimenes Robusto was very impressive when I received a sampler. I was so impressed that I ordered a box on my next monthly order. After going through eight cigars I have thrown 3 away! The smooth quality smoke I was expecting does not exist. The cigar does not burn consistently; in fact the three I threw away would not stay lit. I'll definitely stay with a Macanudo any day over the Leon Jimenes. The previous reviews on this web site are 2 - 3 years old. It seems the quality has slipped dramatically. I would not reccommend this cigar to anyone.

"This is one tasty smoke"
This is a well balanced tasty mild smoke. The draw was clean, the smoke volume good. Great construction, Burned razor sharp. I've read some post here. Not sure what there smoking, but it wasn't anything like the Jimenes Robustos I've had. Very pleasureable with mild developed complexity. I have smoked a few all were of high quality and great taste.

"A real disapointment"
I bought a 5 pack, I've smoked 3 so far, ALL three have been so tight almost unsmokeable. They are smooth but you got to work for it, that's not my idea kicking back and enjoying a good smoke. I wish I could get my money back for those!!!

"Mild - not overpowering"
I enjoyed this cigar. It had a nice mild but tasteful flavor. burned nicely and lasted longer than I though it would. good draw. Is a good cigar for early cigar smokers and experienced smokers looking for smothing smoother than some of the stronger brands. Hope this is helpful.

"LJs... ...a good consistent smoke."
I bought a five-pack of LJ Robustos and I love 'em. Actually I thought the draw was a little tight, but the cigar was smooth and consistent, and I love the beautiful, smooth and glossy wrapper. I intend to keep some LJs in stock in my humidor.
