Vegas Robaina Clasicos, 5th Anniversary Humidor

I was in the mood for something special... so why not smokin one of those Robainas...

Toastin it carefully, clippin the head and takin the first puffs... wow... wonderful sweetness with hints of cinnamon... well balanced combination. Strong aroma of tobacco and some decents hints of cedar and honey in the background. Very smooth and creamy durin the first third...

The strong note of tobacco is still there in the second third. Cedar is more in the foreground now, still sweetness of honey in the background, being more intensive from time to time and fading away again... Hints of white pepper every now and then...

In the last third the sweetness is gone completely: cedar, tobacco and some tary notes. A mix of exotical spices is comin up. Gettin strong now, but still smooth enough to nose exhale it... fantastic cigar.

Perfect draw and burn durin the whole smokin time of app. 100 minutes.

  1. The addition of the floral notes that pooled with Cocoa, earth, honey and oak really bring a very unique overall flavor profile..

    1. I can't agree more, Peter. Those cigars are really amazing, I am glad that there is still a bunch left of those in the humidor.
