WB Brand Robusto Maduro

Friday, February 4th, 2011

I have no idea who gave me the cigar up for review today. If it was you, let me know and I’ll give proper credit. I simply lost track of this one in the humidor. Anyway… I never heard of this brand until recently. They are based in Orlando, FL, and other then that, I know nothing more. You can read more at their website. As always, I paired this cigar with water.


Wrapper: Brazil

Binder: Connecticut from Ecuador

Filler: Dominican & Nicaraguan

Size: Robusto 5 x 5o

Price: $7.00


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The oily dark wrapper had a smooth sheen to it that looked nice. There were really no flaws to mention. The odor coming off of the wrapper and foot was sweet earthiness with a tinge of poo. The cigar had a soft spot here and there, but nothing drastic. The pre-light draw had a little resistance, and a mild earthy and natural tobacco taste.

The burn required no corrections, and the ash held for an inch.

The first third had an interesting sweet flavor with hints of earthiness. Coffee or espresso was prominent as well. Through the nose, there was a nice spice that had some peppery notes. The smoke feel was dry but I didn’t really crave water. At the tail end of this third, I started picking up mocha.

The second third had the same coffee flavor. It was sweet and mingled with mocha notes. The spice was sweet and had a little punch. Earthiness almost went away completely. At times I found it hiding behind the dominant coffee flavors. The smoke feel was dry, and it started to distract me. It seemed to make the overall flavor profile feel scattered.

The last third had that dominant mixture of coffee and mocha. The spice was very peppery at times, and sweet at other times. There was a distinct tingle left on the lips and tongue that had a tinge of sweetness. It wasn’t cinnamon, but it had that cinnamon feel if you know what I mean. The dryness didn’t distract me as much in this third.

This was a good medium bodied cigar. At times I found myself thinking “Meh…” but most of the time I enjoyed the experience. I think the $7.00 price tag is a little steep though. Leaving price out of the picture, in the end I enjoyed smoking this cigar. It’s worth trying.
