Yesterday I tried the Aguila robusto, heckuva stick. Showed much better than I expected.

Same huge aromas, with no break in the flavors from start to finish.

Construction was spot on, great burn to the nub.

Flavorful but not overpowering ,compelling aromas of spice, but not peppery on the palate. Smooth finish with lingering flavors.

My kind of smoke, fits my profile and gives me a really good alternative to CCs.

Aguila Robusto

Most everyone who knows me, know I do not do a lot of cigar reviews and when I do, I do not pick out every little flavor some may find in a cigar. I only do the basics.

99% of what I buy are CC’s with a few select NC’s mixed in for good measure. (anything in the Illusione line-ups)

I was recently gifted a Nicaraguan Aguila Robusto. This cigar is an exclusive from a famous Swiss e-tailer. There is not a lot of information to go on for these cigars.

The construction on this cigar is simply fantastic. Very firm with no soft spots. The wrappers are beautiful with no visible defects. These was an ever so faint crease down the sides from the molds. The only part I would knock a point of would be the extremely easy draw the cigar had. I didn’t expect that with how firm the cigar felt. I personally like more a little more resistance in the draw.

Upon lighting the cigar, POW! This hit me in the face with all sorts of goodness. Almost brought a tear to my eye and reminded me NOT to exhale through my nose right away with a cigar I am not familiar with. By no means is this a one dimensional cigar, for the flavor pickerouters, this one is a must.

The flavors had subtle changes from start to finish, and a short while in, I was able to exhale through the nose without worrying about tears forming. LOL The burn was almost perfect from start to finish. It only got a bit out of shape at about the first third mark. It was only about 2mm crooked and corrected itself once again to a perfect burn. Also, I set it down for several minutes at one point for a test, and when I picked up, it was still smoking.

I have a different rating/grading scale for cigars. With “my” scale, I’d give these a solid 4 stars ****
*=never again
**=smoke another if gifted
***=would trade for or buy singles sometimes
****=would buy a box
