Inception 288 Robusto Cigar Review

This 5×50 stick features a dark chocolate firmly packed satin finished wrapper with a couple small veins, a couple imperfections, tight invisible seams, large double cap and rich hay and chocolate aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with very thick rich chewy full bodied smoke giving an oily deep earth and pepper both holding through the long finish. The first third brings the body down to medium with smooth smoke output showing much the same flavors as the first light with a much shorter finish. Construction is excellent. The 2nd third transitions slightly moving to a medium-full body with deep warm tobacco notes adding a little pepper through the now long again finish. Ending 1 hour in with an inch remaining where it got too hot for my taste, the last third brought on a subtle smooth nut to go along with the deep warm tobacco. Thank you to Inception Cigars for providing this for review!

    Been deeply contemplating picking up a couple but price is holding me back. Has anyone tried the avo 85th anniversary? If so, your thoughts?

    Thanks for the little gift at the end, I’m #6. Guess I’ll go to the end of all your vids instead of opening a new window to start another review lol.

    Bryan great review! I hope you enjoy the 518 and the BCD even more!

    In defense of the Cuenca y Blanco branding, Jose Blanco is one of the most highly respected people in the cigar world. While understanding trademark and branding protection, it’s unfortunate that he is not able to put his own name on a cigar that he created and is rightfully proud of.
