Famous 70th Anniversary Garcia Family Robusto

Famous 70th Anniversary Garcia Robusto Cigar

Nicaragua

By Patrick Semmens, Stogie Guys (July 4, 2009)

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar. – P.S.

I managed to procure this smoke, created by the Garcia Family, in celebration of Famous Smoke Shop’s 70th Anniversary at their Cigar Expo event. It features a slightly rustic habano rosado wrapper and a firm feel.

Starting with a singular taste of intense cedar, it progresses to a full-flavored profile where rich earth and pepper weave in and out. With excellent construction, the Famous 70th Anniversary Garcia Robusto is a good cigar now, but I get the feeling it could be better with some age.

Verdict = Buy.
