Macanudo 1968 Robusto Cigar Review

This 5×50 cigar features a dark chocolate wrapper with a slight red hue, slight imperfections, small veins, tight seams, a firm oily wrapper and feel with a small double cap and rich sweet chocolate aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with just a touch of resistance, great smoke output and medium bodied flavors of a very soft creamy dry tobacco with a long finish of the same. The first third develops into a big blast of creamy leather, dropping the generic tobacco flavors. 30 minutes in at the 1/2 way point, flavors have shifted to a bold earth and pepper flavor with medium-full body and no discernible strength. Burn and draw are perfect with plenty of smoke output and a long deep finish. Ending at 1:10 min the last third brings back the leather joined by a very smooth creamy nuttiness with rich flavors through the finish. Thank you very much to General Cigars for sending this for review!
