Isla del Sol Robusto Cigar Review

This 5×52 stick from Drew Estate sports a dark brown wrapper with slight tooth and very slight green tint, firm even round construction, a generous double cap, minimal veins, tight seams and a sweet hay aroma. First light reveals a surprise to me, a sweetened tip. The flavor is just overwhelming sweetness, just a big candy taste. Draw is snug but putting off plenty of smooth light smoke. 20 minutes in the sweetened tip wears down ever so slightly and a small coffee flavor can be tasted on the retrohale. 35 min in at the 1/2 way point, the coffee infused flavor really comes out. It’s mixing with the tip flavor making it very sweet and smooth. Smoke output has increased even more, draw loosened up and it’s a medium-full body. Ending at 1 hour the last third dropped the artificial sweetness just going to a very creamy coffee flavor with a ton of rich smoke. Thank you very much to viewer Greg Bellante for sending this for review, I greatly appreciate it!
