Espinosa Maduro Robusto Cigar Review

This 5×52 stick features a dark chocolate firmly packed wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, a slightly toothy oily velvet feel, triple cap and faint soapy aroma.  First light reveals a snug draw with good medium bodied smoke output showing flavors of a slightly sweet smooth earth, a touch of cocoa then a pepper and spice building on the long finish.  The first third smooths out even more, dropping the sweetness, keeping the soft cocoa and earth.  The burn is temperamental, needing a touchup.  Hitting the 1/2 way point at 20 minutes it required a relight with no flavor changes.  Ending fairly quickly at 40 minutes where the nub got too hot for my taste after another relight, the last third continued to be tough to keep burning well while flavors were unchanged.

    Seems like you are veering too far from mainstream lately with the cigar reviews. Lots of cheapos, no-names and Gurkha type stuff I am not at all interested in smoking.

    • Well you certainly can’t please everyone.
