Ring Gauge: 50
Shape: Petit Robusto
The Hoyo Petit Robusto is a well constructed cigar, with a wrapper the shade of tan bark that is smooth and free of veins or wrinkles. The bunch is solid and the cap is perfectly applied.
Before lighting up
Pre-light draw is perfect with strong aromas of fruit and spices. Reminds us of the glory days of Cuba (Pre-Castro small cigars like Rey Del Mundo Royal Serie No.3).
The cigar lights up easy and draws very well from the beginning. A nice smooth draw throughout with a little touch up required to even out the burn. Burns cool throughout.
The first third starts out with a little pepper, wood and earth with hints of leather. Starts the way some cigars start their final third. A small puff yields a mouthful of luscious smoke.
By the middle the cigar turns to sweet hay more fruit and leather with some tobacco in the background.
The finish gets great, rounded out with a meaty, sautéed mushrooms and tobacco flavor. No bitterness detected at all. You hate for it to end while you burn your fingers.
We cannot stop smoking the last part even if we had to burn our fingers. A great cigar.
