Casa Turrent 1901 Robusto

This cigar has a nice smooth box pressed Habano wrapper. The bunch is firm. The cold draw is perfect. Today’s beverage is a cold Topo Chico.

The initial flavors are earth and oak. A good medium profile with plentiful smoke. The retrohale is very smooth. The burn is mostly even.

In the first third the strength increases a bit with some spicy notes. A light black pepper note appears in the retrohale. The burn remains mostly even.

During the second third the flavor profile remains consistent and pleasant. This is a medium to full bodied smoke. The pepper in the retrohale comes and goes a bit. The burn has become very even.

Approaching the final inch the complexity of flavors remains excellent. The retrohale is very smooth. The construction of the cigar is excellent.
