Quick Smoke: Carmelo Primeros Robusto

14 Apr 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.”

Carmelo-Primeros

I’ve had this cigar, made by Honduras Caribbean Tobacco, resting in my humidor since last summer’s IPCPR Trade Show. I wish I had smoked it sooner. It has a fantastic, classic band and packaging that surrounds an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, Nicaraguan-double binder, and Honduran and Nicaraguan filler. The cigar is medium-bodied with toasty notes, coffee bean, cedar, dried fruit, and chocolate flavors. Construction is excellent on this well-balanced, tasty smoke. My only wish is that Honduras Caribbean Tobacco’s cigars were easier to find, as I’ve enjoyed the few I’ve smoked.

Verdict = Buy.
