Pinar Del Rio Reserva Dominicana Robusto Cigar Review

This 5×52 stick offers a dark chocolate wrapper with minimal veins, tight seams, a rich oily feel with a slightly spongy give and dense pack. It has a closed foot with the outter wrapper leaf folder over the end, plus a pigtail on the cap. The aroma is very rich and oily giving a chocolate and tobacco scent. First light reveals an effortless draw, mild-medium flavors of an oily but dry tobacco and a slight pepper and spice kick primarily on the finish. One unique thing is that it outs off a huge amount of smoke just sitting – it’s a fairly fast burner to begin with but is constantly giving off a nice aromatic smoke from the foot. The first third shows the same flavors as the start but in a smoother mouthfeel with a touch of leather here and there. 20 min in near the 1/2 way point the flavors shift to a softer almost buttery caramel, still on the mild side – but the strength kicks up to medium-full giving me a slight head rush! Ending at the 1 hour mark, the second 1/2 really slowed down in burn speed, allowing me to enjoy the flavors more, which is a good thing. Those flavors didn’t change from the 1/2 way point, continuing the smooth experience. Thank you very much to PDRCigars.com for sending this for review!

EDIT: I mistakenly call it the Toro in the video. The Toro is a 6″ long.
