Default Giralda Tablado (Robusto) Natural

Giralda Tablado (Robusto) Natural - 5 X 50. Wrapper - Ecuador, Binder - Nicaragua & Honduras, Filler - Nicaragua. Between Medium and Full bodied.

Initial taste is a blast of pepper and cedar which quickly becomes a creamy sweet caramel flavor with cedar, coffee and an underlying spice. Very balanced. As the cigar progressed, the smooth flavors of sweet caramel, coffee, cedar and spice continued with all of the flavors balancing together very nicely.

Somewhere during the last third of the cigar, I began to feel the strength picking up along with the spice. Coffee and cedar increased a bit as well, along with the creamy caramel still present. Very long finish of caramel, spice and coffee coating the palette.

This was a very good, balanced and complex cigar that delivered nice distinct flavors. Construction, burn and draw were perfect. MSRP on this vitola is $6.05 which makes a cigar of this caliber a very good value. A definite recommendation to try.

By the way, this cigar is blended and made by Don Pepin.
