Cuba Libre One – Cigar Review

Cuba Libre One Robusto Cigar Review

This cigar has a very oily dark brown Habano wrapper with some medium sized veins.

It is very tightly rolled and is a fairly heavy cigar when holding it.  The draw seems a bit tight before lighting, but it should work out well once lit.

The Cuba Libre One smells awesome – spicy but sweet cedar.

So far it seems like it will be the whole package.  It looks, smells, and feels great.

The first third has a very earthy and pungent leafy taste followed by a sweet and spicy finish.  The smoke is a bit dry and it did not take long for it to advance to medium/full bodied.  It produces a ton of smoke and is burning very evenly.

At the start of the second third I realized this is a very well blended cigar.  The flavors have definitely transitioned and the cigar has mellowed out a to medium body.  It is now a very buttery smoke that is primarily earthy, spicy, and sweet.  I also noticed a lot of espresso flavor creeping in there.

This is one slow smoking cigar!  It is now the final third and the Cuba Libre One is definitely full bodied at this point.  It also packs a strong punch, so watch out!  The final third has lots of espresso flavor, it is earthy and buttery with a spicy and faintly sweet finish.

This Cuba Libre One really reminds me of the Diesel Unlimited in a lot of ways (flavors, construction, and long lasting) but the tobaccos used are completely different.  It is another strong and bold cigar like most that were released in 2010.  Be careful to leave plenty of time between puffs or this cigar will turn bitter on you real fast.  The construction was perfect and the flavors were never boring which left me with a complex and fun smoking experience.  At this price these cigars are a steal, but the price will certainly continue to fall the longer they are on the market.  I think this cigar is a tremendous value and will suit the medium/full body cigar lover very nicely!  Give it a try!

Flavor and Taste: 17/20
Construction: 10/10
Wrapper: 5/5
Price Point: 10/10
Would I buy a Box: 5/5
Total: 47/50
