Quick Smoke: Casa Magna Colorado Robusto

21 Jan 2017

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.”

Casa Magna Robusto

This Nicaraguan puro, made by Nestor Plasencia for Quesada Cigars, was named the top cigar in the world by Cigar Aficionado in 2008. Back then, the MSRP on the Robusto (5.5 x 52) was $5.25; today, you can find it for about $6 when bought by the box of 27. In addition to good combustion properties—including an effortless draw and a burn that’s well-behaved—it offers an airy, medium-bodied profile of cayenne spice, dry wood, cinnamon, apricot, and caramel. The texture is a tad papery. I seem to recall this cigar being more concentrated with a richer, silkier mouthfeel. It’s definitely not bad, and the cost is not an issue, but I can’t say I would smoke this Robusto on a regular basis.

Verdict = Hold.
