Pinar del Rio 1878 Capa Oscura Robusto Cigar Review

This 5×52 stick features a firm thick lumpy dark chocolate wrapper with an oily slightly toothy satin finish, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, double cap with a pigtail, closed foot and rich oily chocolate aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plumes of rich medium bodies smoke showing notes of smooth oily creamy leather, coffee, chocolate and pepper with a smooth short finish. The first third mellows a bit dropping the leather and most of the pepper, burning perfectly just pouring off smoke. The 1/2 way point comes in at 40 minutes carrying the same flavors but adding a bit of strength in to the mix. Construction is 100% flawless. Ending at the hour mark the last third burned a bit quicker, moving to a deep oily sweet earth with a long finish of the same.

      Oddly enough, I’m the exact opposite. I have yet to find a PDR that I like or would buy a second time. I’m not a cigar snob, but for some reason PDR has nothing that I’ve tried that works for me. I’ve tried 7 different lines so it’s not for the lack of trying.

    I have fallen in love with PDR 1878, I have had all the ones that my B&M carries. All of them are good

    Another solid review. I will say that after watching a couple hundred of your reviews I can tell when you like a cigar. You throw in little key words and your voice is much more calm. Makes me laugh when I catch you!
