Cigar Ratings & Reviews

Cigar Review: Casa Miranda Robusto

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Draw: Perfect

Pre-light flavor: Bready, toasty

Toasting & Light: Excellent all around

Base flavors: Toasty, nutty and sweet

First puff: Creamy and toasty with prominent floral notes

Retrohale: Smooth and earthy with note of pepper

Aroma: earthy, sweet and very floral

Burn / Ash Quality: Very clean, even burn resulting in firm, almost solid gray ash.

Consistency: Excellent throughout

General Observations: Very smooth with plenty of creamy smoke. Finish is a tad on the dry side. Every puff was very flavorful. This is what they mean by a “full-flavored” cigar. Not all that complex in the first act. Strength ramped up by the midpoint, while maintaining a nice balance of flavors, primarily sweet wood with notes of leather, nutmeg, and roasted nuts.

Summary: Made for Nestor Miranda by Willie Herrera (formerly of Titan de Bronze. Now with Drew Estate) who made a very impressive cigar. Very smooth, consistent in flavor with an excellent balance. A good choice for newbies if you’re ready to move on from your Macanudos. Not a bad alternative to the heavier fare for the more experienced, either.

Rating: ????
