Default Spanish galleon corojo robusto

This 5 x 54 Spanish Galleon corojo robusto has been in my humidor for a couple of months and I hesitated to smoke it due to the mixed reviews I heard of it. This cigar has Dominican and Nicaraguan filler and a Dominican Cubano 98 binder with a corojo wrapper, as the name suggests. The wrapper is quite dark and has a big vein running over it.



The packing is quite nice, I really like the band with the old style map. The cigar is wrapped in cedar that has a band on the foot and the cigar and cedar are packed in cellophane. The predraw is fine and the construction feels good. The cigar has a dry grass aroma.



I taste a mild acidy kind of coffee with a mild sweetness to it. The strange sweet flavor keeps noticeable until I reach the mid of the cigar. There is also a musty feeling to the flavor. At the 2/3rd point the cigar gets a bit bitter.



I had a bit of a crooked burn. The smoke is a bit thin and there is not a lot of it. The ash is light colored and firm. They claim this cigar is medium bodied and they are right, but they donít advertise that it is mild flavored.



Would I buy this cigar again? Nah, there are better cheap sticks out there

Appearance: 7 / 10
Construction: 7 / 10

Smoke & ash: 6 / 10
Burn: 6 / 10
Aroma (first part) 6 / 10

Aroma (last part) 5 / 10

For a cheap stick, the ash looks pretty clean and the appearance is pretty strong--nice and squatty!

Nice review. I got a free one of these from AtlanticCigar with my purchase in the Churchill size. After finding out that the Equus Cigar Company makes these, I am having doubts whether to look forward to smoking them.
