Quick Smoke: Kristoff GC Signature Series Robusto

9 Jul 2016

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.”

The oily Brazilian Maduro wrapper on this over-sized Robusto (5.5 x 54) makes a nice first impression. Unfortunately, I didn’t find smoking the cigar as impressive. While there was the typical Maduro coffee and sweetness, the spice too often was harsh, while there was also an off-putting grassy flavor. The GC Signature Series has a varied blend of tobaccos: Nicaraguan, Honduran, and Dominican filler with a Honduran binder. Burn, smoke output, and draw were excellent. Not a bad cigar, just not a particularly memorable one, either.

Verdict = Hold.
