Before lighting up
Strong aromas of earth and vanilla can be found on the foot of the cigar and the pre-light draw is perfect. A couple of puffs leave on your lips a subtle salty taste. Black honey notes are dominant, married to a delicate spiciness. A delicious pre-light draw.
The ash is firm, dark grey in color, and reaches more than two inches in length before it falls of. The draw is perfect all the way through from foot to cap, delivering thick rich smoke, with the distinctive Cohiba creamy texture. The draw is great from the very start that is supple and ample.
The delicate taste of black honey with hints of spiciness is dominant in the first third. The classic Cohiba characteristics of grassiness appear from the first draw. Medium to full bodied at the start, earthy and creamy flavors and a peppery finish.
Into the second third the cigar becomes more complex exhibiting wood, caramel, honey and cedar. It has plenty of earth and wood, all perfectly balanced in great harmony.
In the last third the flavors get stronger and the body fuller. Notes of cocoa and leather are adding to its huge complexity. The Cohiba Robusto is simply delicious!
In summary, consistent with a great draw and burn, smokes for about 60 minutes growing in strength starting off medium ending beautifully with full creaminess and rich great strength with a clean aftertaste on the palate.
