Romeo y Julieta Star Crossed Dark Embrace

Embrace ·5 ×52 ·EMS

Upon first inspection, the virtually seamless Ecuador Habano wrapper give this 5 x 52 Robusto plenty of eye catching appeal. Beyond aesthetics, this beauty really lives up to its good looks. Starting out very peppery, the Embrace soon mellows as notes of earth, sweet coffee, and aromatic cedar join the mix. At the halfway point, right down to the nub, this beauty really ramps up in complexity as the top notes combine with a very pleasant sweetness thanks to its well-aged Dominican filler tobaccos. Although medium to full bodied in strength, this smoke that manages to remain very smooth and well balanced.

Maria Mancini Magic Mountain Maduro

Magic Mountain ·6 ×54 ·Maduro

This affordable box-pressed torpedo (6 x 54) has a Costa Rican wrapper around Honduran binder and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos. Built solid, this dark beauty has a sturdy white ash and a very cool, easy draw. The Magic Mountain burned incredibly slow and even, as bold flavors of black coffee, tangy spice, chocolate, and roasted, nuts were dominant throughout the smoke. This no nonsense, old Cuban style classic has remained very consistent throughout the years. Definitely a two-thumbs up!

Oliva Connecticut Reserve Torpedo

Torpedo ·6.5 ×52 ·Natural

To create a milder cigar to round out the famous Oliva portfolio, the Reserve Torpedo along with the rest of this line, consists of a blend of Nicaraguan fillers, and a Nicaraguan binder, both covered in a stunning and creamy smooth Ecuadorian grown Connecticut shade wrapper. This stunning looking stick is golden brown in color and solidly built. The first few puffs produce a fuller body, with pepper and spice being the dominant flavor. This quickly settles down to the mild to medium spectrum as the creamy smoothness of the wrapper began kicking in. Lush, well-balanced notes of coffee bean, caramel, sweet cream, toast, and cocoa remained consistent throughout the rest of the smoke. The burn was slow and even throughout, and the fragrant sweet tobacco aroma soothed the senses.

Rocky Patel Fire Robusto

Robusto ·5.5 ×50 ·Maduro

Blended by the renowned cigar master Rocky Patel and manufactured in Nestor Plasencia’s Honduran factory, this is Rocky’s most powerful cigar to date. A four-nation blend of aged binder and filler tobaccos are hidden underneath a silky Ecuador Habano wrapper. This powerhouse starts with a blast of black pepper that quickly subsides to let the scrumptious notes toast, cinnamon, exotic spice, and sweet molasses take center stage. Fire Robusto is an intense smoke that is very well balanced and enjoyable. Especially after a large sumptuous meal and a few casual cocktails.

Torano Vault D-042 Toro

Toro ·6 ×50 ·Maduro

Torano Vault Toro contains hearty ligero fillers from Nicaragua, a dark and oily Ecuador Habano wrapper, and a very special binder from the volcanic soil of the Ometepe region. This Toro starts with flavors of leather, cedar, and earth that is soon accompanied by delicious butterscotch, cream, coffee, and sweet maple notes. The final third of the smoke actually builds with intensity, while remaining both sweet and nutty. Full bodied, yet so incredibly smooth and well balanced, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this cigar to those who prefer a milder smoke.

La Boheme Poeta

Poeta ·5.75 ×54 ·EMS

The gorgeous Puccini inspired band that sits atop the smooth, oily, and seamless Ecuador Habano wrapper make this one of the best looking smokes that I have ever seen. Beyond the aesthetics, this medium to full bodied, 5.75 x 54 big robusto was an absolute joy to smoke. Along with its slow burn and nice even draw ,the La Bohéme Poeta provides notes of sweet natural tobacco, warm bread, cocoa, sweet spice and subtle citrus notes on the exhale. With its intense, yet smooth flavor, every puff reminds you that you are smoking a Cuban style cigar. Boutique Blends' Rafael Nodal really created a masterpiece with this one.
