Quick Smoke: Isla de Cuba Aged Maduro Robusto

21 Mar 2009

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

Isla de Cuba Aged Maduro Robusto

This five inch by 52 ring gauge Robusto, which had been aging in my humidor since I reviewed it last May, was every bit as good as I had remembered. In that time the rich espresso flavor maintained its black pepper spice, cashew cream, and maduro sweetness, and the combustion qualities were likewise impressive. This Connecticut broadleaf-wrapped beauty, which sells for about $146 per box of 25, reaffirmed my belief that Darryl Lieser’s Isla de Cuba is one of the best boutiques.

Verdict = Buy.
