My Weekend Cigar – Oct. 16, 2017: Gispert

MY WEEKEND CIGAR: Gispert Cigar Review

By Gary Korb

One of the best “morning cigars” for your money – the Gispert Robusto boasts a mellow, 3-nation blend that pairs perfectly with a hot mug of your favorite coffee on a cool Fall day.

GISPERT ROBUSTO

Filler: Nicaragua
Binder: Honduras
Paired with: Coffee (cream & sugar)

My Experience:. On this particular Sunday, I woke-up earlier than usual; let’s call it sometime around 7:30 AM, that time of the morning when all is quiet and a dank chill hangs in the air. I poured myself a mug of fresh hot coffee and selected one of my favorite morning cigars, a Gispert Robusto. I discovered Gispert cigars (pronounced, hees-pair), some years ago during my quest for some good Honduran cigars and they became an instant favorite. Actually, the only Honduran leaf in this cigar is the binder, which holds together a well-balanced recipe of Nicaraguan long-fillers capped by a golden, silky Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper.

Sitting on the back patio, I spied the familiar signs of nature in the dewy morning stillness – a lone rabbit hopping across the yard, flashes of crimson as Cardinals darted in and out of the trees, the sound of a brook bubbling nearby – as the cigar issued a smooth, creamy helping of toasty, nutty, and cedary notes on a sweet finish enhanced by a honeyed aroma. Get the picture?

Suffice it to say . . . I’ve smoked Gispert cigars in every size, and they’ve all been satisfying. I don’t usually smoke cigars this early in the day, but on this particular morning that Robusto was outstanding. New cigar smokers, or anyone who wants a mellow start to their day, take note.

Gispert is my favorite cigar. Generally the Churchill, but am working on a box of Toros at this time. Wonderful flavor and just a pleasant cigar!

It really is a great cigar. I had it a cigar lounge twice and enjoyed it.
