Quick Smoke: Aladino Robusto

24 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.”

Described as a “classic old fashioned cigar” by Julio R. Eiroa, Aladino makes full use of Honduran-grown Corojo tobacco, the wrapper leaf once used extensively in Cuba. It makes for an interesting medium-strength smoke. The predominant flavors are a moderate level of spice and natural tobacco sweetness. Along the way, I also found some charred wood, nuts, and a little leather. Aladino comes in many sizes, each said to be blended for a somewhat different strength level. The Robusto (5 x 50) sells for about $10.

Verdict = Buy.

    One of my faves for sure. I wish more places would carry them…or at least pull head from rear and stock something other than general/altadis.
