Independencia premium cigars offer you a robust, medium-bodied smoke of consistently high quality at a very sensible price. Made at Tabacalera La Aurora, these handmade cigars have a well-balanced blend of Dominican longfiller & binder tobaccos rolled in a lush, oily, Nicaraguan wrapper that adds a little extra muscle to the mix. The smoke is smooth, toasty, and complex with hints of dark cocoa and black pepper on the finish. A 'must-try' cigar that made Cigar Aficionado's 'Top 50' list.
Just smoked my first independencia robusto and found it to be very,very nice and well worth the price. Well constructed, nice flavor and a nice long ash. Can't understand the negative comments.
The #4 and the Robusto are the best two vitolas in this blend. The are terrible OTT; however, they age very well and really display the Nicaraguan qualities at the year mark. At the 2 yr. mark, the floral and Black Cherry notes are incredible on the finish.
I don't understand the bad reviews here. Had an Indepencia robusto yesterday eve. Even burn, good construction and pleasant, not overwhelming taste. Draw was excellent, reminded me of some Cubans I've smoked. Would consider buying more of these. Good value for money.
I'm beginning to believe this could be a case of Jeckyl and Hyde cigar style. I just got this in the mail after winning a 5 pack.I noticed that as many like it as hate, but I find myself on the side of those who approve.The flavor was strong but nice at first and the draw was smooth. As I reached the midway point, I had some burning issues, but it was manageable.My favorite thing about this stick was the smoke. It was a good thick smoke.This is why I enjoy taking a chance on the auction site.
