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.
