Onyx Reserve Robusto (Square Pressed) Maduro cigars are medium to full-bodied, Maduro cigars handmade in the Dominican Republic with Dominican Piloto Cubano and Nicaraguan tobaccos, a Nicaraguan binder, and a rich-tasting Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper. But the real kicker in this cigar is its spicy Peruvian, Cuban-seed Ligero tobaccos. This brand, which has earned a '94' score in Cigar Insider, is a must-smoke if you enjoy the depth and naturally sweet taste of Maduro cigars. PLEASE NOTE: Most sizes are box-pressed.

Draw was waaay too tight in the beginning, but after some massaging the stick loosened up becoming almost spongy by the midpoint.
The last third was the best flavor-wise, but unfortunately it was too shortly lived.
The whole burn time was about 45 minutes.
88 points [flavor-wise, 85 points for the first half, and 90 points for the last third].less

A pretty tasty cigar for the price. Spicy, peppery flavors. I was annoyed at how tightly rolled one of the cigars was but a slight bite on the head and I was good to go. less

Appearance looked good, firm yet spongy to the squeeze. Handsome looking cigar. Elegant black gold and white banner. Good burn easy draw.It started out smooth and gradually gave its true blend. It released a gal/tar bitter taste throughout. I think this cigar will appeal to many pallets, but not mine. I?'ll stay with my PDR 1878 Reserva Dominicana Capa Habana. less
