“I enjoyed the cigar, though I didn’t see as much subtlety as I anticipated. Most of the time the profile had a few contributing flavors that were all fairly distinct and forward. Overall the cigar was full bodied and full flavored with primarily wood, earth, baking spices, and pepper. There were moments of different types of sweetnesses like citrus, fruit, and syrup. There were also times that there was some toast added and the wood became more distinctly oak. So I would say the cigar was fairly dynamic throughout and kept my attention. The performance, overall, was pretty good and the one hour and 49 minute smoke time was pretty long for this Robusto. I think this was a good offering for the first limited edition of the year for Black Works Studio. If you can find these still, it’d be worth trying one.”
