Macanudo Robust Reviews
Ultra smooth with a flavor and aroma great time after time. Savor it in small puffs and be sure not to drag on it too hard. You'll enjoy 20 to 30 minute of a real treat.
I went through two boxes and found the taste great in both, but in one box the cigars were really pressed and hard to draw. Then in a few I experienced a bitter taste halfway through the smoke that ruined the cigar. When they are good they are really good, but there are problems with consistency: big time.
This cigar wouldn t light! Even if I held the lighter to it, it wouldn t draw! The wrapper was so dry it came off immediatly!! I thought I got a bad batch so I open another tin..big mistake..they did the same thing. I am sending the other 3 tins back today.
This is a great cigar. I usually stick to monte cristos2 and was bit worried about this box of Macanudos. But wow what a pleasant surprise.
Bought a couple of boxes because they were on sale. Not a bad cigar, but the draw is very inconsistent from one cigar to another from the same box. Pretty disappointed given Macanudo s claim to fame. Think I ll stick with the Maduro Hyde Park. Better and more consistent.
These cigars are addictive! It starts out nice and smooth, but the flavor seems to get better as you smoke it. The Prince Phillip was long lasting, and even at that I could not out it down until the very end.
They were rolled so tight you could not get any draw through them. I tried to rod them and they just broke open. FAIL No smoke . Pure junk
This is by far one of my favorite cigars. The taste is great. The draw is great. The burn is a little uneven, but still better than most. I highly recommend!
I was surprised by the flavor of this. I knew to expect more than from a regular Mac, but I wasn't expecting dark rich roasted coffee. I'm not talking Java or Kaluha here. It's not at all sweet. There are some (subtle) layers of earth and spice, but it's relatively one dimensional. That's not a bad thing in this case, because it's a great dimension, but there it is. Great build, relaxing draw, and the wrapper was almost velvety in texture. Overall a fine smoke.
This is a great cigar! I would still be considered a newbie in the cigar world, but with being able to try a real Cuban Romeo y Julieta while on vacation...This is a good substitute!
Good taste and smell, but draw was comparable to attempting to suck mashed potatoes through a straw
I had one of these after a nice dinner on Sunday. I like the regular Mac's, though they are more of a morning smoke. I decided to give the Robust a try; the last time I smoked one of these was almost 10 years ago. It was certainly more robust than a standard Mac, but really didn't thrill me with any complexity. Half way through, I was only smoking it out of boredom; the flavor did not keep me wanting more. Not a bad or horrible smoke; just not something I would keep in my humidor.
