Quick Smoke: El Tiante Habano Rosado Robusto

15 Jan 2012



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.”

My colleague thought well enough of the re-launched, Pepin-made El Tiante Habano Rosado that I thought I better check it out.  This well-made 5 inch by 50 RG robusto, features an oily Ecuadorian Habano wrapper around Nicaraguan binder and filler. Like my colleague, I found a medium-bodied cigar, with classic Pepin spice and woodiness. It features clove, toast and oak with a cinnamon finish, and it’s well constructed. I really enjoyed the pre-Pepin Tiante blend, but this current blend also has a lot to offer. Fans of Pepin’s many cigars (of which I include myself) should definitely seek out this balanced, well-made cigar.

Verdict = Buy.
