Dunhill Aged Reserva Especial 2003 Robusto Grande Cigar Review

This 5.5×54 stick features a very smooth tan wrapper with a buttery texture, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap, even slightly spongy pack and rich soapy hay aroma. First light reveals a very nice draw with good medium-full bodied smoke output showing a slightly grassy smooth and oily tobacco on the draw with a silky short finish. The first third quickly shifts to a smooth, mellow creamy coffee and nut combo, with a lengthening finish adding a tiny bit of pepper. 35 minutes in at the 1/2 way point the ash falls off in a solid chunk and the performance is consistent. Ending at the hour mark with an inch remaining, it got too hot for my taste so I ended it. Showing no changes the whole cigar was a perfect performer with a very consistent blend all the way through.

Thank you very much to General Cigar for providing this sample for review!

    Another great review Bryan. I was surprised to see this cigar appeared to have an almost yellow wrapper, very interesting. I’m glad it’s a light smoke good for the morning. Many people go for the med-full body power houses. I myself, like to start off the day with something a little more mild.

      I agree JTaylor. I have been pushing myself (somewhat subconsciously I believe) to develop my palate for ever stronger cigars. While I really do enjoy a strong smoke, I talked myself into believing the med or mild-med sticks just weren’t for me any longer. Well the last couple of weeks I’ve pulled out some medium bodied smokes just because I didn’t feel inspired as I looked into the humi. What I found were extremely enjoyable experiences where I didn’t push myself to “get the most out of it”, I just sat back all relaxed-like and enjoyed it. It felt good and gave me a new appreciation for a wider category of experiences.
