Caridad Connecticut Robusto cigars present this formerly bundled selection now in an all-new boxed edition with much improved quality and flavor. A blend of prime, Dominican Cuban-seed longfiller tobaccos and Connecticut Shade wrappers offer you an extra-mild and toasty smoke with a note of sweetness on the finish. A good 'morning cigar' that pairs-up nicely with a fresh cup 'o Jo, and a good buy for new cigar smokers who would prefer a premium handmade cigar that's easy on the palate.
I've read the negative and the positive reviews. The construction problems described did not occur in any of the 30 or so sticks I've smoked so far. The burn is even, the flavor is a mild butterscotch / leather and the robusto is a very nice, short smoke. It goes with a cup of coffee or if you're watching a movie and you're near the end, it's a pleasant ending. I have smoked better sticks, but paid four times as much for them. I've also paid more for other sticks and liked them much less. So these will join my rotation. And if anyone wants to be snobbish about a cheap cigar, that's fine with me. The price won't go up. ;o)>0 0
First few minutes of smoking this the draw took a couple of deep breaths but after that it was a breeze, extremely smooth. Peppery taste in the beginning until stick warms up then halfway through a mild mint taste, very easy on the pallet. The ash held on to its half inch or more without fail. The aroma was mildly sweet and enjoyable. No unraveling of the binding and burned very evenly. Overall a very enjoyable smoke with this one. Will definitely put this one into heavy rotation.0 0
Just smoked one of these from the 20/20 bundle. Better than a lot of cigars at twice or three times the price. No complaints. Went great with my single malt on the rocks.0 0
I forget why or when I bought these from Famous. I think it was part of a deal Famous had several months ago. Truthfully, I didn't expect much since it wasn't my primary purchase. Man was I wrong! These are in my top 5. Great in the morning with a cup o' joe, or any time you just want a great mild smoke.0 0
