Dona Flor Selecao Robusto Cigar Review
This 5×52 stick features a dark chocolate slightly mottled wrapper with a very firm pack, minimal veins, tight seams, triple cap and a rich damp earth aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with thick medium bodied smoke producing flavors of an oily musty earth and leather with a sweet thick oily finish. The first third mellows quite a bit going down to a mild body with minimal light smoke, the sweetness mostly fading away leaving a damp earth slightly on the bitter side with a short finish. Finishing the 2nd third just 25 minutes in, the sweetness returns in a dark cherry form, while the damp earth body is back up to a medium with a long again finish followed by a tiny bit of spice on the lips. Ending out at 35 minutes where the nub got too hot for my taste, the last bit held the same. Thank you very much to Dona Flor Cigars for sending this sample in!
