Quick Smoke: God of Fire Serie B Robusto 2011

9 Mar 2013



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.”

God of Fire Serie B Robusto 2011

Since I examined the Double Robusto in God of Fire’s Serie B line—a cigar that earned a 4.5-stogie rating—I have been looking forward to trying the smaller Robusto size (5.25 x 50). In addition to being half an inch shorter and slightly thinner than the Double Robusto, the Robusto has an entirely different wrapper: a dark Ecuadorian sun-grown leaf. Compared with the Double Robusto, which boasts a Connecticut broadleaf maduro wrapper, it has a denser flavor of espresso, raisin, and cocoa that’s a little heavier on spice and a little lighter on sweetness. The overall profile is balanced, complex, powerful, and memorable, which is what you’d expect from a cigar with a $21 price tag.

Verdict = Buy.
