Upmann Royal Robusto

Those cigars are made exclusively for the LCdH's... Edmundo sized, packed in 10ct boxes... let's see, how it smokes.

The slightly shiny wrapper is colorado colored, the rollin is really tight (as for all the new releases I smoked recently)... a smell of tobacco, leather and spices is comin to my nose.

The first third start with intensive notes of leather and a very impressin spiciness... there are aromas of nuts (walnut? hazelnut?). This cigar is on the spot from the first draw...

Durin the second third some tannin is comin up, not very much, but you feel it... there is still leather, added by wood and some decent sweetness, which faints away quickly.

The last third's gettin rougher... more tannins, intensive tary aromas, burnt wood... it's obvious that this is a young cigar... but with a good potential imho.

The smokin time was app. 110 minutes, the ash was very firm, it burnt down ruler-straight and had a perfect draw all the time.
