Bucanero Treasures of Costa Rica Puro – Cigar Review
Bucanero Treasures of Costa Rica Puro Robusto Review
I’m back with another cigar given to me by Bucanero. This one is advertised as a being similar to a “traditional cuban”. Let’s see how it smokes.
The Puro wrapper is a nice chocolate brown with a couple of noticeable veins.
It is firm with a bit of “give” when it is squeezed. The draw was too difficult when punched, but was perfect when I cut it.
It has a very pungent earthy smell and was peppery on the tongue when I tested the draw.
The first third had very earthy oaky flavor with a very buttery spicy finish. Nice mild bodied smoke. The flaky gray ash did fall off early. The burn tended to become uneven in the first third, but always corrected itself.
The second third was still very earthy but was now very creamy as well. It still has that nice buttery spicy finish. I am liking it. The burn is nice and even and the ash is holding on a bit better.
The final third produced lots of earthy peppery smoke with a spicy finish. I also sensed some coffee and brown sugar in there. The draw and burn remained good all the way down to the nub.
During the first third I worried about the construction, but it quickly improved and remained good for the rest of the smoke. The final third of this cigar was fantastic! The cigar as a whole was enjoyable, but it finished with a bang. Being a medium body cigar, I think most everyone will find something to like with this Bucanero. I hope you get to try one of these, because I think the Treasures of Costa Rica Puro is a… well… hidden treasure.
