El Mejor Robusto Cigar Review

This 5×50 stick features a rough, mottled dark tan wrapper with lots of small veins, tight seams, a couple tears, even slightly spongy light pack, sloppy triple cap and faint wood aroma. First light reveals a snug draw with good amounts of smoke showing a very bitter, wood and paper taste with a long bitter finish. The first third burns very quickly, showing mild, dry flavors of a sweet wood with a parched mouthfeel and finish. Construction has issues, with an uneven burn and multiple splits in the wrapper. Even with the sub-par wrapper, burn is good and the ash holds on to the 1/2 way point. Body is a mild-medium, dropping the sweetness just showing a straight woodiness, with some harshness especially on the finish, it tastes young. Ending at 45 minutes, the last inch got very hot, not showing any further changes. Thank you to CigarsInternational for sending this one in!
