I lit this one up very shortly upon recieving it. The construction of the stick was up to par with the rest of Alec Bradley's
The burn and draw were just fine. Here is the but... The flavor was fairly bland for the first third. The flavor definitely intensified in the second third, however it was nothing special. This is especially true when compared to any other AB. The final (thank goodness) third became harsh and bitter, even when not drawn upon ofter nor hard. In conclusion, buy some Overtures or other AB instead.

"A Lot of Bang for Your Buck!!"
I am a huge Criollo fan and I was amazed at how much tobacco was packed into this cigar...and the taste is far beyond its $50 per box price tag. Reminded me alot of the Xikar Criollo, although it's not quite as strong, but it does have very nice flavors from start to finish. Rather peppery at first then settles into a nice rich Criollo flavor.

"Good flavor but inconsistent construction."
I really wanted to like this cigar since I'm a big AB fan. The look of the cigar is great and the flavor is very nice for a budget cigar. After getting a couple in a sampler, I thought this would be a goode cigar for an everyday value smoke. About half of those I've smoked so far have burned terrible. I guess that's what you get when you buy a cheap cigar.

"Wow! Where has this been?"
I received one in a sampler. I have many high end cigars in my six humidors. I was
Looking though a box for a smoke that would be a "quickie". I saw the wrapper and decided to try the robusto out. A lit it and WOW! I wondered who made it right away. It taste just as good if not better then MANY $200.00 a box cigars. Perfect flavor. I enjoyed it so much, I looked it up online and here I am. AB, I'm not surprised is behind this "secret" stick. If it was rated like the other top brands, it would easily get a 91-93. I'm going to get a bundle RIGHT NOW!

"great full bodied smoke"
Great smoke for the more experienced palate. The wrapper is good but the binder and fillers are the real stars of this cigar. Great nuances of earth, leather and spice with a touch of espresso. Well balanced to the nub. Very good smoke for the money.

Siboney Test Flight
I like strong cigars (usually I smoke Rocky Patels, Alec Bradley or Honduran maduros) but this is by far the strongest cigar I have ever smoked. Good burn, good flavor and more than an hours worth of smoking. Great for the golf course. Great flavor. I will definitely buy them regularly.

Smooth, unique flavor, medium flavor. The 5x54 Gran Robusto offers a great draw and burn. Will taste even better after some humidor time. Will I be winning more of this blend? Yes. Definitely worth a try.
