Can t beat the power taste and quality for the price.
I don t get into descriptions that include words like hints of coffee, toped with blueberries, etc. I find the Daytona Robusto a tad milder than Olivia Cain F550 and a great everyday smoke. Its construction is excellent and even, and this produces an easy draw and even burn. The ash is white and it holds well.
I was very excited to try this cigar as I love the Cain F Habano. Unfortunately, the Daytona burned terrible and the smoke was not pleasurable. It had hints of pepper, earth and then this yucky industrial aftertaste. I like a few cigars a day and won t buy anymore of these.
In almost every regard this is an excellent cigar, with the exception of flavor. For my palate, this has one of the worst tasting first thirds that I have ever had. It combines my three least favorite flavors in a cigar, with no counterbalance. Flavors are bitter, dirt, and acid.About halfway in the cigar dramatically improves in flavor, moving to a leather, black pepper, and natural tobacco profile. It’s not mind blowing, but it’s not bad either. I just don’t know that for me, suffering through the first few inches of this cigar is worth it.On the positive side, everything else is remarkable. My burn and draw are great, and the cigar is well constructed. For me this is a full flavor, full body smoke at first that settles into a medium flavor, but still full body smoke throughout the second half.
