Vallejuelo Robusto Cigar Review
This 5×50 stick features a firmly packed dark chocolate mottled wrapper with minimal veins, tight seams, triple cap and rich sweet chocolate aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with just a touch of resistance putting out copious amounts of thick rich full bodied smoke with zesty chocolate earth pepper and spice all with a rich long finish. The first third mellows quite a bit to a medium body still keeping the same blend and getting a bit smoother. The finish is very long carrying over a big bit of pepper and spice lingering over the tongue and lips to the next draw. The 2nd third goes by in 40 minutes continuing to decline in body now at a mild-medium, dropping the sweet chocolate leaving a mellow smooth earth on the draw. The finish drops the pepper and spice, growing shorter and cleaner. Ending at 1:10 the last third brings back a bit of the sweetness with an almost minty nut, also ramping up the strength. Thank you very much to viewer Arthur Cairo for sending this sample in!
