Journeys Robusto cigars are a new affordably-priced, premium selection from the makers of Flor de Gonzalez Cigars. Handmade in Nicaragua, each Journeys Robusto boasts a medium-bodied blend of all 5-year-aged Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos, Sumatran binder, and lush Connecticut wrappers. After rolling, the cigars are aged six months to assure a smooth, rich-tasting, and well-balanced cigar. The smoke is earthy, sweet, and nutty, with notes of herbs, some spice, and a suggestion of mocha java on the finish. Nice trip!
Great stick at an even better price. Will definitely be buying more.
I find that reviewing cigars is much like reviewing ARTWORK. They both are subjective and up to the individuals taste. When thinking about trying a new cigar I read and watch a lot of reviews. I am not as swayed by the review as much as the description of the cigar itself. I find that too many so called Cigar Aficionados are quite critical of all cigars under ten dollars, which I find absurd and simply shows how spoiled and close minded they are. Some of these so called experts even refer to any low cost cigar as dog poo and that is just SAD. I have forty humidors. Each with different brands in them because I don t like mixing flavors. If they don t come in their own WOOD box, then I buy empty boxes I find appropriate to use as a humidor at one of several cigar shops I have in my area. I season them with distilled water and usually are able to place 20-40 cigars in each with a 72% Hmidity Bovida Pack. None of these cigars cost over $2.00 and most are a dollar. I buy them in bundles of 15-20. If I don t care for them after smoking a few I either give them away or smoke them first, leaving the others to age a bit. The reason I explained all this is because the Journey s have become my favorite among the Robusto size cigars and ten of those humidors are committed to them, because I buy more of those whenever they go on sale. Well, that s it for now. Happy Smoking, J.O.W.
These really shocked me. I wasn t expecting much at this price. I was wrong. Not overpowering, really a smooth creamy start, sweet middle with a peppery finish. I am ordering a bunch more today as this has become a daily smoke for me. I have quite a few fine cigars that I really don t enjoy as much as these things. Buy some. They will go up in price.
For me this a great cigar. I am pretty new to cigars and I ve had some $7-$8 that I did not like as much as these. I ve bought a pack of 5 and all have been consistently damn good. A hint of sweet with good mellow cedar gets stronger half way down. Burn and draw both good. For less than a buck this is a great smoke that would still be great at 3-4. I m tempted to buy a humidor just to fill it up with these guys for the price.
