Quick Smoke: S.T.K. Black Dahlia by George Rico Robusto

11 Mar 2018

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.”

This Honduran-made Robusto (5 x 52) features a Nicaraguan Corojo Shade wrapper, “Habano and Nicaragua” binder, and Habano, Nicaraguan Cubita, Colombia, and Costa Rican filler tobaccos. The well-constructed cigar (very form to the touch, but with an excellent draw) features a slightly greenish-tan wrapper and retails for around $9. It creates a balanced combination of coffee, cedar, cream, and some slight pepper spice. Gran Habano’s marketing materials call this a full-bodied cigar, but I found it to be more medium. I also found it to be enjoyable.

Verdict = Buy.
