Obsidian Robusto Cigar Review
This 5.5×54 cigar features a very dark almost black wrapper with slight discoloration and imperfections under the 3/4 length band. It has small veins, tight but visible seams, a fairly ragged foot most likely from a dull cutting station and a mild pepper and oily tobacco aroma. The texture is very firm and even with an oily slight toothiness. First light reveals great smoke output with medium-full body flavors of a thich very rich and smooth oily tobacco with a long finish. The first third develops the flavors to tone things down a notch, taking body to mild-medium but keeping the smooth creamy textures. A slight burned caramel is mixing in on the draw and the finish is growing shorter. 45 minutes in at the 1/2 way point body is up a tick to a solid medium, and the main flavor is creamy textured earth and leather, still with the bit of sweetness. 1:05 minutes in just starting the last third it completely went out on it’s own but after a quick ash tap and relight, it’s back to normal even pushing body back up to it’s start of medium-full with thick rich smoke. Ending at 1:30 min the last third showed no further changes. Thank you very much to the Hemry brothers, Brian & Brandon for providing this for review!
