Among the anejandos releases I have smoked for me this is the best one
started with fruity grape flavor and end up with coffee earthy
the aroma it takes you from one smell to another
the Cigar smooth all the way very mature medium body a good amount of ash and well constructed if you find it grab it is a great cigar for one hour
101. H. Upmann Robusto Añejados 2011
Store bought at Mellgrens Fine Tobacco.
Location: This review was made indoors in a cigar lounge.
Wrapper: Milk chocolate, silky smooth with tiny veins.
Construction: Firm even feel, with an unusual square boxpressed form.
Cold draw: Nutty, cedarwood and dry hay.
1st third: Starts of smooth, when the smoke leaves the mouth it dries out with a woody finish and a bitter coffee.
2nd third: Keeps the same flavours from part 1, very steady and smooth.
The burn: Burns a little wonky but nothing to crazy, white-ish ash, firm and stable, think it’s mostly because it’s boxpressed.
Smoke: A very compact feel of the cigar, so it gives it a tight draw, with a fairly voluminous white smoke. It’s warm to the touch since you have to fight it with the draw.
3rd third: Gets the sharp and bitter characteristics back from the first part, bitter black coffee.
Conclusion: Fairly strong, heavy notes of dark roasted bitter coffee, not a cigar for the classical Cuban smoker. Tight draw aswell which dosen’t boost the scoring.
Result: In my book this is an 85 point cigar.
