Examples from recent boxes 2019-2021 rarely disappoint. Honey, graham, coffee milk and light citrus seem to always hit the spot. Price aside they remain my favorite robusto

It’s a Cohiba Robusto! So it can’t do anything wrong. Like that annoying sibling - whatever new atrocity it commits, everyone coos and clucks over it, ignoring you with your better flavours, easier draw and frankly lower price. That’s how I think other cigars think of the Cohiba Robusto. When I offer cigars around to friends at home, I almost draw a thin pencil line through the names of those who pick the CoRo since it shows the worst of brand consciousness with a lack of taste for anything else in my humidor (of which there are most things so you don’t be that person if the chance arises). I never find them drawing especially well and the burn, about which I care very little, in this case actually does present a problem of re-lighting and ‘touching up’ (a negative connotation regarding cigars and all other things frankly). However, and this is important: The Cohiba Robusto is actually a very nice smoke. It tastes of that lemony honey which Cohiba have made their hallmark and the time taken to smoke it and the flavours and strength you get from it do make it a first class cigar. It is to some extent worth the money in the same way that a bottle of Mouton Rothschild is worth it - you do feel whilst smoking it and when you finish it that you have achieved something - You have just smoked a Cohiba (a small one yes) and it was good. Simply though it does not represent that ever yearned for concept of ‘value’. Have you really thought about it before smoking it or are you just smoking it for what it represents. In some ways I subscribe to the concept of a Veblen Good where the more it costs the better it is (women’s shoes for example or private education) but I have tried hard to shake this sentiment off and always attempt to make rational choices. I am torn here. So do I have several cabinets on my humidor, yes and do I smoke then from time to time yes - especially when I need cheering up, because as the lady on the TV says: “I’m worth it”…

Very interesting and good review. I first thought the Cohiba Robusto had a tight draw and didn't care for it as much. Then I put some in the humidor for about 6 months; since that time I have really enjoyed the flavors and quality of the Robusto, so much so I bought another 25.
