Don Benigno Petit Robusto Cigar Review

This 4×50 stick features a lightly packed dark brown dry slightly toothy wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, sloppy double cap and mild wood and pepper aroma. First light reveals a great draw with thick rich medium-full oily smoke showing a big musty dry tobacco and long finish. The first third stays pretty much the same just adding a smooth spicy heat to the long finish with a pepper zing. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 35 minutes burn has slowed down although the whole cigar is warm and mushy giving very hot smoke. Flavors take on a deep nut and caramel like sweetness mostly through the finish. Ending at 50 minutes where it got too hot for my taste the last bit showed no further changes. Thank you very much to Don Benigno Cigars for providing this for review!

    Bryan,
    With all the different blends / brands out there, do you ever get the feeling your smoking the same cigars with different names on them?

      Only to some extent. You can’t boil things down in most cases to a simple defined experience. It’s the nuances of construction, how flavors work together, levels of smoothness, etc. – the cigar as a whole – that makes each unique. That being said the plainer blends, yes can run together pretty easily. Especially so for people like me that prefer complex transitioning cigars rather than plain one dimensional smokes.

    Thanks

    Yeah, that’s a great question, rgmenke. I was one of the guys who helped Bryan do data entry of flavor descriptions from his past reviews. As I typed into the wee hours, I realized I was inputting the same 3-4 flavors time and again. Bit of an epiphany. That’s why giving us price points would be great to differentiate between a sea of similar flavor profiles.

      There is certainly a big bell curve with certain flavors, very common core components to our beloved rolled up sticks of tobacco :) But prices are a varied and moving target, there’s barely any point, everyone has google or different local prices anyway.
