Victor  Sinclair Series 55 Corojo Robusto review

I have enjoyed the series 55 cigars so far, so I am looking forward to this one.

It has a nice  semi-oily chocolate brown wrapper w/ only smaller veins.  I removed the gaudy band and was very disappointed to find a little glue residue left on the wrapper!  Big turn off!

The cigar packed very firmly but evenly throughout the entire length of the cigar.  I cut it and found that the pre-light draw was very tight.  The wrapper smelled like very sweet cedar and the filler had a more pungent smell.

I lit it up and was hit with a nice sweet mocha taste w/ some pepper.  It is really producing quite a bit of smoke!  The first third was mild bodied w/ a nice sweet honey and cedar flavor followed by a mocha/coffee pepper finish.

The second third mellowed out even more w/ a spicy cedar and a slightly sweet pepper finish.  The flaky dark gray/black ash did not hold on for long, only about and inch .

The final third started with a burst of sweet honey but quickly became medium body cedary flavor with a strong peppery finish.

Overall, I would not consider this a complex cigar by any means.  Keep this in mind when considering buying some.  With that said I think this makes an excellent, cheap, go-to cigar.  If you like the peppery flavors that corojo wrappers produce, you will like it!  If you like sweeter cigars, you will like it!  Basically, I think you will like this cigar and you can’t go wrong with the price (about $2.50 each on the net).
