Robusto An enjoyable smoke w/a lot of smoke. Very flavorful dark chocolate, iced black coffee w/light citrus taste and peppery. Very enjoyable and satisfying w/a dark maduro wrapper though my wrappers were on the dryer side and not oily as expected. I thought it was a very good smoke which was more toward a full flavor. 5 5 1
Robusto This guy is absolutely worth every penny. Smokes like a $10 cigar. The Indonesian binder really sets it apart from the "norm" of Drew Estate 5 5 1
Robusto No complaints. Very good smoke and enjoyable; hasn't let me down. Wish it was lesser in cost for an every day smoke but it is a good cigar. 5 5 1
Robusto Love everything about it!! 5 5 1
Robusto Great bold cigar 5 5 1
Robusto The 1st cigar was harsh I can only hope it's just a bad one if not I will throw the box away. That's how bad this smoke was shocked drew estate try to pass it on to there customers 1 5 1
Robusto Considering that this cigar is made by Drew Estate for JR Cigar it comes as no surprise that this cigar is a Home Run! From beginning to end, this cigar provides love. Do not hesitate on buying this cigar! Everything about it is perfect. The construction, burn, draw and taste are magnificent! 5 5 1
Robusto Smoked 2 of the 5 pack I ordered. Burn and draw were good. Burn was actually really sharp and slow. The flavor was not my taste and surprised this is a Drew Estates cigar, since I smoke a considerable amount of their other lines. If you like harsh, hot, black pepper, you might enjoy this cigar. I’ll return and update after I smoke the other 3 I have. 2 5 1
Robusto Had 3 of these. Good DE construction but really harsh on the palate. If you like straight black pepper, it might be for you. If you do not, don’t waste your time or money on this one. 2 5 1
Robusto Tastes like a cold brew coffee...on the medium side...earthy and smooth. 4 5 1
Robusto Would have been better if these were fresh - they arrived already very dry so I will not be buying them again. Literally crumbled in my mouth. I had to let them restore in my humidor for a week and they got a ;little better. 4 5 1
Robusto I was in such a rush to smoke my cigar the moment I lit it I knew it was a disappointment. Never had a problem before a Nicaraguan Dominican it's probably Indonesian binder. Just a horrible taste. Felt like I was smoking paper no bodyj hi to the cigar whatsoever 2 5 1
Robusto I got one of these in a sampler pack its slightly stronger than what I usually smoke but not overpowering.Razor burn, white long ash, easy draw, outstanding flavors, and lots of smoke. Another winner by Drew Estate. A must try. 5 5 1
Robusto most were uneven burn 2 5 1
Robusto Disappointed, first smoke I have received from Drew Estate that I can honestly say that I will not be purchasing again 3 5 1
Robusto Great flavor 5 5 1
Robusto Construction Fine. Smoke Fine. Second half too spicy 3 5 1
Robusto I just smoked the last of a box I bought... sooo dark,the wrapper and smoke toasty and delicious, deeper and deeper as you progress. Strong flavor though nary a nicotine buzz, something about this cigar reminds me of some LFD sticks I used to smoke... Razor sharp burn, not too pricey, highly recommended!!! Excuse me while I go search for those LFDs... 4 5 1
Robusto If you’re on the fence about trying this one, watch Nick’s interview with Willy...and then get a couple 5-packs in different vitolas! In the end, you’ll find another Drew Estate that hits well above the price point. The toro extra took a little longer to settle in but, I didn’t let it acclimate as long as I should have. Now that I’ve had the toro extra and robusto, a box of the corona is on my short list for a daily smoke. 4 5 1
Robusto Surprisingly good. 5 5 1
Robusto Good stick! Great service, excellent packaging, just wish it was shipped fedex instead of USPS. 4 5 1
Robusto Got this in a sampler and really liked it. Great flavor, burn and construction. This will be a staple in my humidor. 5 5 1
Robusto I lied in my earlier review ( 01/21). I had two sticks left that were buried in one of my humidors, just smoked one and I’ll be damned if if it doesn’t taste like those old Espinosa La Zona cigars…lil’ bit of firecracker and cough medicine ( but I mean it as a compliment). Let these age a bit and you’ll find the blenders intent. Old school blend, under the radar that ROCKS 👍🏻😂👍🏻👏👏 5 5 1
Robusto A good cigar at a good price. Just wish I wouldn’t smoke em down so fast! 5 5 1
Robusto This stick was a bit of a surprise, I expected this product to be good but not great! The draw was great, construction well done but the flavors were diverse. Mild pepper and coffee in the first third gave way to nuts and cocoa the dial third included all of those with a fruity sweet flavor. I don’t know if it is the Connecticut filler but wow, I was very impressed. These are too good to be limited to one store. They are even priced great. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself and a good friend to a delicious treat. 5 5 1
Robusto Great draw great burn will definitely purchase again 5 5 1
Robusto I was totally impressed by this cigar. Great draw and construction. Flavors of coffee earth and a sweet cinnamon. There was a light spice that I couldn’t quite put a name too. Definitely a good cigar. 4 5 1
Robusto I got one of these sticks in a sampler, great smoke from beginning to end, nice burn and lots of smoke. Nice pepper and cinnamon at first, then the coco hint to finish it off!! Highly recommend this stick, and at a great price!! I will be grabbing a box of these soon! 5 5 1
Robusto This is probably the first Drew Estate cigar that I just wasn't a fan of. Burn was uneven, but draw was consistent. Very one noted (and not a good one) on the flavor spectrum. I'll pass next time. 2 5 1
Robusto I was pretty excited to try these so maybe my bar was set high. With that said these are still a pretty good smoke. Very consistent and good draw, but missed the flavour for me. Still good taste but wanted a little more something to them. 4 5 1
Robusto Reasonably priced premium maduro. Consistently satisfying and interesting. Will buy boxes 5 5 1
Robusto Great daily stick. Have had a few with wonky burns, but 95% of them have been great. 4 5 1
Robusto Really enjoyed this cigar, let rest for 2 weeks in my humidor. Was pleasantly surprised this Maduro is definitely full flavor/strength compared to those I've had. 4 5 1
Robusto Many different, subtle notes of leather, cocoa, dried fruit and sweet tobacco 5 5 1
Robusto Good draw, great flavor. Nice cigar for an everyday smoke. 4 5 1
Robusto I like the taste in this size better than other sizes I’ve tried since. Great everyday smoke! L 4 5 1
Robusto Lots of smoke, great smell, many different tastes of flavor in each puff. Some tend to burn bit uneven but I've never had one go out. Overall, there's something about this cigar I really like 5 5 1
Robusto Love the Nightshade by Drew Estates 5 5 1
Robusto Had as a trial and will continue to purchase 5 5 1
Robusto Good construction and burn. The flavor was not as good as others I have bought. Probably won't buy again. 4 5 1
Robusto I got these as part of the Halloween Sampler. Upon cutting the tip I found this cigar dry. It needs curing in your humidor. Nonetheless, this robusto was well constructed and it burned evenly with uniform ash. Notes of cocoa made it mellow the 1st third of the stick . It gradually., became stronger developing a sweet coffee flavor with little spice. I probably would choose a Consuegra in the same size for less money. 3 5 1
Robusto Great smoke every time. Purchased 4 boxes already. Perfect draw and a nice spice on the retrohale. 5 5 1
Robusto Had my first one after 13 months of seasoning. It had good flavor and aroma, definitely think it's worth a try if you haven't. Well rolled, no issues with burn, sturdiness, or draw. A good smoke to have in your collection if you like Maduros that aren't overwhelming. 4 5 1
Robusto Cured the 5 pack for a month. It burns slow and sharp. Ash was as white as the Pacific Ocean pearl and plethora of plume. Yet, it has ZERO flavor. What gives????? 1 5 1
Robusto I am a Fan of Drew Estate cigars. Unfortunately this one doesn't make the cut for me. I found it lacking the flavor as describe for the first 2/3 of the smoke. The last 1/3 was good and had some flavor. That is my opinion and you should give it a try for yourself and decide. Keep in mind that taste is personal. 2 5 1
Robusto Good flavor worth the money 4 5 1
Robusto Great taste and draw. Nice full flavor. Would purchase again. Great construction and beautiful look. 4 5 1
Robusto Decided to order these when there was a sale and i was not dissapointed. I’m a fan of Drew Estate cigars and once I tried the deadwood ones I had to try these. Nice draw and flavors, not as sweet as the Tabak line , but flavorful nonetheless. 5 5 1
Robusto I enjoyed the great construction and beautiful burn. However, I smoked 4 out of the five and shared one with a friend. I tried with various bourbons and even smoked one with nothing to drink... Same result and friend agreed. The flavor is so subtle is does not come through much at all, very boring. 3 5 1
Robusto Good after dinner smoke! Would buy again. 4 5 1
Robusto I will be happy to share this cigar with my friends and family. Really great cigar. It's sweet and light. 5 5 1
Robusto Very tasty cigar. Needed a few butane touchups, but not bad. Got it in a sample pack. Impressed. 4 5 1
Robusto Peppery start to a leathery coffee finish. Exactly what I wanted it to be. Waited a long time to try this one. 5 5 1
Robusto As a new cigar smoker this was a fantastic experience. Nice full and bold flavor with great draw. So rich and smooth and a nice burn. Highly recommend! Give it a try! 5 5 1
Robusto Good smoke. Would buy it again 4 5 1
Robusto This is a good cigar. I was surprised by it, usually don't like Drew Estate but this one surprised me. I got it in a sample pack and will buy more. 5 5 1
Robusto I’m a fan of the Acid cigars and thought I would branch out and try something different. I wasn’t disappointed. The burn was perfect, construction was great, the draw was smooth. I was looking for a full bodied cigar and this hit the mark for me. I normally smoke mellow and medium bodied cigars, but this really worked for me. I will be purchasing this cigar again!! This was about an hour to an hour and a half smoke with great aroma. 5 5 1
Robusto I thought it was a well constructed cigar.I’d buy them again. 5 5 1
