La Jugada Habano Robusto Cigar Review

This 5×52 stick features a dark brown firm dry satin wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap and very pungent sweet tobacco aroma. First light reveals a good draw with mild-medium smoke showing flavors of a slightly bitter grass that holds through the finish. The first third quickly drops the bitterness shifting to a soft sweet tobacco and coffee through the long finish. Body is still on the light side, just a soft mild-medium. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 30 minutes there are no changes. Performance is excellent with a good but slightly flowery ash. Ending at 1:10 the whole stick proved to be very consistent with no strength. Thank you to MoyaRuiz Cigars for sending this in for review!

EDIT: Yes I now realize it’s pronounced ‘WHO gah dah’. Until companies stop naming products in a foreign language, I won’t feel bad about butchering the names lol I mean seriously – would you name a breakfast cereal in English if you were selling it in Norway?

    Bryan, I haven’t been keeping up with HLO, but it looks like you dropped a ton of weight. How much are you down now?

    I really can’t let that new edit slide without comment. I know you’ve mentioned a few times in the past that you are a little frustrated with Spanish-language makes and models of cigars because you have trouble with the pronunciation. But they should “stop naming products in a foreign language?!” I’m looking at the list of the top restaurants in the Tampa area and I see La Terrazza, Pane Rustica, Vino E Pasta, La Teresita, Mise En Place, Vizcaya, Taverna Opa… and on and on. Gosh darn those foreigners and their foreign-named restaurants! They should all be named… “Joe’s.” Regarding the cigars, aren’t they largely manufactured in Latin American countries? Why shouldn’t they be named to acknowledge the actual farmers who grew these tobaccos, and the workers who rolled them, and the maestros who blended them? This particular cigar has Nicaraguan filler and binder, and a Mexican wrapper, and was manufactured at La Fabrica La Zona in Esteli. And it should necessarily have an English designation? No way. C’mon, you live in Florida, where one out of every five people speaks Spanish to some degree. Basic pronunciation should flow to you as if through osmosis. Work on it, so you can at least competently order off the menu at La Teresita beyond just pointing at something and saying, “I want this” when you should be able to say, with authority, “Yo quiero Pescado en Escabeche, con Yuca Frita en el lado.” Now, as I get down from the soapbox, I offer you:

  • Good God, the edit punctuates why I don’t have any respect for Bryan’s reviews and videos. First we’re told to wash the mineral salts off our RH beads by running them under tap water, now he’s upset that producers of product originating from Latin America use Spanish in their product names. Are you really that dense Bryan? I admit, I drop in from time to time for the sheer comedy, despite that I have no interest in your reviews.
