Cuba Libre 'One' Robusto

Cuba Libre One Robusto 1
Cuba Libre 'One' Robusto. 5x52. Medium-dark brown wrap. Excellent build with nearly perfect lines and smooth veins. Cut and lit well. Medium draw pre-light, slightly easier soon after flame. First half tastes of cedar, pepper, leather. Espresso notes on the exhale. Second half tastes of sweated leaf, walnut, cedar. Ash is very clean with nice marbling, easily holding at an inch. Perfect even burn throughout.

This is a superb cigar. The taste is rich, woodsy, spicy, with a creamy mouthfeel and wide aroma. The dark notes of coffee and earthy herb are just a touch on the back of each puff. Nice balance and body. Well recommended.

From the company:

"Cuba Libre One is a stellar new handmade from Nestor Plasencia, finally released after two years of work, now available to all (all those with a pulse and a checking account that is). An ultra-bold, mega-flavorful super-premium, this Nicaraguan's most apparent trait is its thick, dark Habano-seed ligero wrapper - a gorgeous leaf grown in the Jamastran Valley of Honduras that's brimming with flavor and giving off an oily, flawless appearance. Below the surface is a robust blend of Cuban-seed ligero long-fillers from the Esteli and Condega paired with additional ligeros from Honduras. It has two binders: a Habano leaf from the Jalapa Valley and a flavorful Costa Rican leaf. From first light to final puff, Cuba Libre One is rich, complex, and balanced. It's powerful but balanced, and layered with notes of coffee, earth, pepper, and cream complemented by a spicy-sweet finish. Strong, delicious, refined. A traditional and Cuban-esque blend with some punch and zest you won't soon forget.​ A deliciously stout, 4.5"x60 vitola was crafted for those seeking the ultimate in full-flavored goodness. It's known as 'The Brute' and it's downright tasty. Layers of deep, concentrated flavor are waiting."
