Nish Patel Xen Robusto Cigar Review
This 5×50 stick features a oval box pressed dark tan wrapper with some imperfections, stretch marks, small veins, tight seams, triple cap and an oily wood aroma. First light reveals a slightly snug draw with good smoke output showing mild-medium bodied flavor of a bitter wood with a very short clean finish. The first third completely shifts going to a very creamy sweet cinnamon with a subtle redhot tingle going through the short finish. The 2nd third cruises by in 35 minutes going to a medium-full body, dropping the sweetness replacing it with a soft tobacco and earth that lasts through the now longer finish. Ending at 50 minutes, the last third burned well but hot, showing no more transitions. Thank you to viewer Stefan Reese for providing this sample for review!
