Aladino Connecticut Robusto 5 * 50

If your new to cigars, a seasoned cigar enthusiast and perhaps just introducing the world of cigars to someone. Then the Aladino Connecticut Robusto would be a good choice. The cigar is beautifully constructed and the silver, black and white band makes it stand out a bit. On the pre light you will pick up on notes of cedar, oak and vanilla, as you toast the foot you will smell more of the cedar. After a few puffs you will taste the cedar and on the retro hale your sense will get the oak. As you continue to smoke you will get some hints of spice but its very subtle it just lingers on the tip of the tongue. The second third you may start to notice some leather not overwhelming and the final third you will pick up the vanilla. It has a good draw and nice light grey ash. So as an introductory cigar or just in a mood for a mild one, the Aladino Connecticut Robusto is one you must absolutely try. Picked on 06/23/2019
The Wise Man Maduro Robusto 51/2 * 50

If you have not tried the Wiseman Maduro Robusto and you are a fan of medium to full-bodied cigars, then you are doing yourself a disservice - this 5 1/2 by 50 is a gem. The cigar is wrapped in Mexican San Andres, with a Corojo binder and Nicaraguan filler, giving this cigar a complex flavor profile. As you smoke the cigar, you will pick up notes of black pepper, some sweetness, nut and earth. The cigar is not overwhelming so it's a nice one to smoke, especially for anyone who is trying a medium to full-bodied blend for the first time. Picked on 04/28/2019
