The range comprises medium strength cigars, using tobacco from the premium Vuelta Abajo region in Cuba.
Dress Box of 25 cigars.
Size: 6×53, Robusto Extra (Sobresalientes).
Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily and smooth with some veins protruding but most of them tiny.
Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Light cedarwood note.
1st third: Starts with a cup of medium roasted coffee and a dash of milk, backed my a oak wood note.
2nd third: Keeps the same.
Burn: Burns sharp with a firm but not so stable gray-white ash.
Smoke: Medium voluminous smoke with a cool smoke feeling on the tongue and a medium light draw.
3rd third: There is only a medium roasted coffee note left the other flavours have now gone away.
Duration: 19:00-20:00, 1h.
Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile.
Result: In my book this is an 90 point cigar.
/Cigar Reviewer André
I love this cigar. It has all the floral notes and perfume of a lovely R&J - easily the prettiest of all cigars. It also has a bit of a dark tang through the wrapper and is a happy hour at least. These cigars were dismissed when they came out and maybe R&Js just need more time to mature than people think. Try one of these new Hidalgos and you will see what I mean. This brand evokes the earlier generations - the cigar your grandfather smoked after dinner - but they are as interesting and stimulating today as they were then. One of the first cigars I ever smoked, this cigar will not disappoint and if you are a fan of the marque then you will rather love this one. It’s like meeting a slightly eccentric cousin of a very good friend. You recognise many of the traits but there are some new ones there you never imagined.
