Cigar of the Week: Iron Horse Robusto

The wrapper is a Sumatra Maduro from Ecuador, which adds some nice sweetness to the mix of Cuban-seed Criollo ’98 longfillers bound in a Dominican Olor binder. The result is a medium-bodied smoke with a good draw, clean burn, and enough complexity to keep it interesting. The modest little tabacalera where Iron Horse are made produces some pretty darn good cigars, but only time and word of mouth will tell whether this new three-shape selection will be a prince or a pauper.

I would suggest smoking one right out of the box, or waiting until they settle, then putting a few away for a couple of months. My gut tells me these will age up nicely and provide an even smoother and more flavorful smoke.

See pricing and applicable offers for all Iron Horse cigars.*
