Quick Smoke: Cameroon Especial Robusto

5 Apr 2009

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

This Robusto (5 x 50) is made by Rocky Patel—though you wouldn’t know it from the simple orange band that doesn’t bear his name. It has an attractive, vein-free Cameroon wrapper that surrounds binder and filler tobaccos of unknown origin. Once lit, I find a mild- to medium-bodied taste with plenty of the sweet spice and cedar that is often associated with Cameroon tobacco. It doesn’t provide much in terms of complexity but, for a bundle cigar that sells for $2 per stick, it offers a lot of bang for your buck.

Verdict = Buy.
