121. Quesada Reserva Privada Robusto

Sponsored by Quesada Cigars.

Location: This review was made indoors in a cigar lounge.

Wrapper: Light shade of brown, classic Connecticut color. Smooth feeling to the touch, with slightly protruding veins.

Construction: Firm but still a little giving feel, evenly spread out.

Cold draw: A very fresh cut grass feel.

1st third: Starts of with a quick, medium to dark roasted coffee, with it’s accompanying bitterness in the after taste.

2nd third: Keeps the flavors from previous part, slight hint of cedar wood and a leather sharpness.

The burn: Burns quite fast, keeps a sharp burn. Firm and stable gray-ish ash.

Smoke: Voluminous white smoke, with a warm feeling on the tongue.

3rd third: Keeps the same all the way through.

Conclusion: Was a bit surprised of the dark flavors when I lit up the cigar, since it looked like a mild one, so don’t be fouled. This was a well constructioned cigar that burned well and the flavors kept stable all the way. This wasn’t really a cigar I would choose since the I’m not a big fan of heavy dark flavors.

Result: In my book this is an 88 point cigar.
