Canimao Robusto Extra Cigar Review

This 6 1/8×52 stick offers a medium tan wrapper with a firm smooth feel, minimal veins, tight seams, a few splotches here and there and a good double cap. The aroma is a potent potpourri type smell with a nice little zing. First light reveals a very easy draw, good thick smoke production, and flavors of a very dry earthy tobacco. The first third is very smooth with medium bodied earthy tobacco and a mild pepper kick with a pleasant smooth long finish and creamy aftertaste. 45 min in at the half way point the strength of this stick really got to me! It is a FULL strength cigar while only medium bodied. For those liking power, this is right up your alley! The last third continues the great performance and adds a tough of caramel and licorice rounding out the general sweetness. The strength and body also match up at a solid medium-full, just where I like it. Ending at just under 2 hours the stick proved to have a great burn time for the money with decent complexity and excellent construction. Thank you very much to Canimao Cigars for generously sending this sample for review!

    Great job on the review, I appreciate the assessment of cigars that are somewhat unknown, at least to me. I have never heard or considered Canimao cigars, but the virtues of great construction and burn quality I look for, not to mention a 2 hour smoke, will definitely make me keep my eyes open for it.

    Cheers,

    Thanks for the review. Especially as this is the second review I’ve seen (Ed & Tom at Tom’s Cigars: http://www.tomscigars.com/2009/11/03/canimao-robusto-extra-contest/) generally praising this cigar, I really need to keep my eyes open and grab one if the opportunity arises.

    Cheers
