Macanudo Cru Royale Robusto Cigar Review

This 5×50 cigar features a very dark chocolate wrapper with a slight red hue, oily firm feel, hard pack with a couple soft spots, small veins, ragged seams with some imperfections, double cap and a rich chocolate and barnyard aroma. First light reveals a very smokey foot smoke, medium body flavors of a deep oily earth, slightly bitter with a short finish. The first third brings failry unique flavors out with a bread, slightly sweet meat and a bit of a twang that all very quickly fades to the short clean finish. Smoke isn’t especially thick or rich but there is plenty of it and the draw is perfect with an almost razor sharp burn. 30 minutes in at the 1/2 way point flavors shift just slightly bringing the sweetness up a notch with an almost licorice flavor but not very distinct. Ending at 1 hour with an inch remaining where it got too hot for my taste, the remainder of the stick showed no further changes. Construction has been perfect all the way down.
