Quick Smoke: MBombay Corojo Oscuro Robusto

25 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 cigar punches well above its weight. It is strong, flavorful, and satisfying—a complex blend in a slow-burning short robusto format. With a dark, oily wrapper from Ecuador and filler melding Dominican, Ecuadorian, and Peruvian tobaccos, the Corojo Oscuro Robusto (4.5 x 50) retails for $6.99. I experienced an excellent draw and burn, with smoke that was thick and rich. The cigar begins with a bit of char, some cedar, and a long finish. The cedar remained constant throughout, becoming mixed with notes of chocolate, coffee, and a nice tobacco sweetness. All in all, an excellent cigar.

Verdict = Buy.

    Care to mention where this may be purchased? Of major online retailers, only JR appears to have it, and only by the box. Not willing to go that far on a review.

    They are hard to find cigars. No retailers in my area. Like Thomas, not going to buy a box in order to try. Too bad. Most reviews online are glowing.

    Looks like they’re sold at a shop in Louisville, KY. . . . and I’ll be there next week! Woohoo!!!
