Default Jaime Garcia Robusto

One of my first real reviews ever. Just rarely get the time with wife and kids.
I picked this up at a shop and it doesn't seem to be the easiest to get a hold of.

5X52
Tobaccos from Jose and from Oliva in Tampa.
Wrapper is Conn. broadleaf.

Prelight

Well made cigar. Wrapper is a little toothy with small veins, but no moped analogies. Prelight draw is very tasty. My father style taste. Maybe Tat J21. I was very anxious to light.


1st Third

Wow. This cigar tasted like something from Pepin that I will never forget. I thought of numerous Tats, and others, but couldn't put my finger on it. Caramel and cinnamon with a faint pepper on the finish, but sweet. Like pepper jelly. This cigar started off with great depth. After a few minutes the spice left and coffee/cocoa took over. The sweetness was still there but fading.


Ash was very firm and held for about 1.5", but my knucklehead dog jumped in my lap.

2nd Third
Cigar changed tremendously. Creamy. Spice and caramel is gone. Really wish it wasn't, as that was what I was excited about.

Last Third

Caramel and spice came back but only faintly on the finish. Staying creamy with coffee, so I purged to see if I could wake it up some. Coder strong with peppery finish. Towards the end the creaminess came back.

This cigar was far from boring. I really wish The flavors from the first third stayed but didn't. I was very impresses with how the prominent flavors came and went. I would buy this cigar again if the price was right. Not a bad stick for 7-8 bucks.

8.5/10
