Quick Smoke: Pinar del Rio 1878 Capa Oscura Robusto

8 May 2011

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

Only 2,000 boxes of this 5-inch, 52-ring gauge limited edition smoke are available. The pigtail-capped Dominican puro features an oscuro wrapper, Habano binder, and a filler with corojo, Habano and criollo ’98 tobacco. The medium-bodied smoke is dominated by powdered dark chocolate notes. Underneath are roasted nut and earth flavors. It’s extraordinarily balanced, well-constructed, and, at under $5 per stick, it’s easy to recommend.

Verdict = Buy.
