BG Meyer Standard Issue Robusto Cigar Review

This 5×50 stick features a huge info band covering a dark brown, dry, firmly packed wrapper with medium veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap and very faint paper aroma First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful medium-full bodied smoke showing smooth flavors of a deep slightly bitter earth, cream and a long finish of a heavy earth, pepper and slight spice. The first third quickly mellows to a mild-medium earth and wood, with a finish of the same. It also burns hot just an inch down not only to the touch but the smoke. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 30 minutes the 2nd third comes up to a medium body, with a bit of the pepper joining in with the damp earth. Ending at an hour, body came back down to mild-medium and the blend showed no further changes. Thank you very much to Camacho for sending this in for review!

    Hey Bryan, solid review as always. I had one of these not long ago. I heard good things, but also felt that it was a little plain. This was a case of the marketing surpassing the cigar.

    Named cigar of the year by the Cigar Authority, what a joke. I’ve had one, felt the same thing as Brian did. Thumbs down.
