Cugine Robusto

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Cugine Robusto Maduro Cigar

Score: 8.3

This cigar had an appealing, woody pre-light flavor with a hint of tea. Overall, the smoke was exceptionally creamy and well-balanced, dominated by woody flavors with a trace of sweetness. During the second half, the cigar blooms into a much richer, spicier smoke with a note of espresso on a peppery finish. The cigar burned clean and maintained its creamy consistency through the final couple of inches.

If you’re looking for a medium-bodied, full-flavored Maduro with a little more bite to it, this cigar will do it for you.
