Everything about this cigar is good, except the taste! The wrapper tastes more like a Maduro, rather than a Cameroon. Lacks flavor. Inferior to its Cuban counterpart.
I got this in the Battle of the Caribbean sampler so it may not be representative, but the draw was poor, requiring two or three attempts to get any worthwhile amount of smoke. Flavour started out nicely - toasted tobacco with supple leather and other tannins, but deteriorated to unsmokable tar well before I reached the band. I ve smoked about half the sampler and while a couple of them weren t quite my thing, this is the only downright nasty cigar so far. I hope for General Cigar s sake this example isn t typical.
I've enjoyed about a box and a half of these. I've smoked more expensive and I've smoked cheaper. I find myself returning to the Cohibas. It's a smooth, predictable smoke, always with an even burn. Others can offer fancy words to describe these cigars, I just call them my favorite.
Always a treat.Very consistent in flavor, burn, taste; never bitter. Smooth & enjoyable. My favorite cigar anytime.
Cohiba cigars never let me down. I got this three pack as I was checking out of an order that I was placing here at Famous Smoke. What a great idea. The taste and burn are just perfect. Cohiba has such a distinct flavor and smell. There are many high priced cigars out there that are just not worth it but Cohiba stands true! They are worth every penny and then some.

This cigar burned evenly throughout, so much flavor and power I thought it was a full not medium! Great taste and great aroma. I knocked it for apperance and construction as it looked "veiny" which made me nervous but wasn't a problem. I have 4 more in my box, I'm not sharing!!!
I think by themselves non Cuban cohiba cigars are good mild to medium sticks. The price point might leave you moving on the bigger bolder cigars. Please try pairing this with a cup of strong coffee and this baby will sing. So if you are new to the game please pair this one to get a flavor that is the reason for lighting up in the first place.
wow ,got 2 of these in a sampler pack and what a stogey .Even tho I prefer a mild cigar this robusto was an experience I won't soon forget ,will definetly buy a box of these for the humidor
Too bad Kevin had a bad experience with the Robusto. As for me, I find the draw excellent and the taste superb.
A excellent Cigar that's not worth the price. Still a good smoking cigar. Would buy more if they were cheaper. Tried 5 robustos that were very consistent with good construction and burn. I will still keep a few on hand for my collection.
