Canimao Robusto Extra Cigar Review
This 6 1/8×52 stick offers a medium tan wrapper with a firm smooth feel, minimal veins, tight seams, a few splotches here and there and a good double cap. The aroma is a potent potpourri type smell with a nice little zing. First light reveals a very easy draw, good thick smoke production, and flavors of a very dry earthy tobacco. The first third is very smooth with medium bodied earthy tobacco and a mild pepper kick with a pleasant smooth long finish and creamy aftertaste. 45 min in at the half way point the strength of this stick really got to me! It is a FULL strength cigar while only medium bodied. For those liking power, this is right up your alley! The last third continues the great performance and adds a tough of caramel and licorice rounding out the general sweetness. The strength and body also match up at a solid medium-full, just where I like it. Ending at just under 2 hours the stick proved to have a great burn time for the money with decent complexity and excellent construction. Thank you very much to Canimao Cigars for generously sending this sample for review!
