Default Blind Review Cigar #2

Cigar #2 reveal and my review.

El Rey del Mundo Robusto Larga
6x54


I have been smoking the little brother to this cigar, the Robusto, since it was first released I preferred shorter cigars back then, and again now. I have occasionally delved into this larger size, and it is truly very similar to the robusto, just a longer version. What is truly amazing is that this particular smoke has remained consistent in flavor, aroma, etc for all these years.

1) Aesthetics: I truly love the tissue-wrapped presentation to this cigar, it just looks elegant with the gold and red band over the white tissue. Removing the tissue finds a dark chocolate, veiny, maduro wrapper with a slightly sloppy cap.

2) Pre-light Construction: This is a consistently firm cigar. When cut, the draw was nicely free and open, with hints of sweetness on the pre-light draw. When nosing the foot, rich tobacco with hints of nutmeg seemed to come through.

3) Post-light Construction/How it smoked: Upon lighting, the easy draw brought forth large volumes of thick smoke, keeping a straight burn line, and producing a white ash.

4) Flavor and strength: I remember these for the exquisite hints of chocolate, I mean, rich chocolate and coffee. This was very reminiscent of that, there were hints of chocolate and coffee, rich tobacco, and slight spice. I find it interesting that in this present incarnation, I also found ephemeral hints of green tea. This is definitely not a full-bodied smoke, more on the milder side of medium.

5) Aftertaste/Finish: With each exhale, there were hints of spice and cocoa that clung fleetingly on the palate.

6) Aroma: Again, side-slip aroma was of chocolate, cocoa, and coffee.

7) General Comments: Of the many cigars I have returned to from the past, this is one of the few that transports me back in time to when I first smoke them. That is amazing!


8) Recommendation: While I like these, and recommend them highly, the contemporary smoker should not expect a full-bodied smoke. Of course, every cigar should be smoked and enjoyed for its own merits. Pick one up with an open mind and be surprised by the enjoyment you will find.
