My Weekend Cigars: July 9 & 10, 2011

Reading Time: < 1 minute

I also had a Cohiba Black Robusto. I’m a huge fan of this blend for it’s rich taste, creaminess, excellent balance, and naturally sweet character. Plus, the ebony-hued wrappers are gorgeous. Unfortunately, these are not sold at Famous, but I still recommend it, especially if you already enjoy the Cohiba Red Dot cigars in the Cameroon wrappers. I smoked most of it outside and finished it off watching the Phillies game in the house (see photo).

Finally, I had a Gran Habano No.1 Robusto from a box I split with one of my office buddies. Since I discovered these a while back, they have become one of my all-time favorite morning cigars. They have a very smooth, creamy and nutty taste that’s great with coffee. The Connecticut wrappers are sweet in flavor and aroma, but extremely delicate. Don’t even try to remove the band until you’re really close to burning it.
