Bartolomeo Posted April 7, 2010 Share Posted April 7, 2010 -Very well made DR size cigar, made with 2006 tobacco, gift from Hiroshi to a nice friend of mine this January -Pig tail end -Pre draw is musty tobacco -Initial puff is a blast of leather and woody tobacco along with some pepper, -Such a good job lighting it, the pig tail stay on the ash for a while just like before it was lit -Very smooth tobacco so far with a hint of cream, Medium so far early on, some light grass as well -Wrapper is matte finish and I think a 56 RG size, medium amount of smoke at rest, black layers make up the ash -What strikes me so far is how smooth and creamy this cigar is, no harshness what so ever -This is the same cigar as the VR “El Padrino” but this is the Double Robusto version, I have some El Padrino’s resting for better days -Aftertaste is super sweet, Tom Petty in the background and warm weather……..Life is good my friends -Hints of coffee, wood and mild leather come and go in the 1/3 -I don’t see any similarities between this cigar and regular production VR cigars -Reminds me of a high end Italian dessert, made from the best chef with the best ingredients -Nice draw, nice finish, burn rate is perfect…..everything you look for in a cigar -2/3 starts to have a nice, chewy finish but not too sticky on the palate -Hints of chocolate and continued grass are still around but not dominating at all, more complimentary -One of the best cigar’s I have ever had in my short smoking career -Smoke is sharp and none of the cigar lingers in my mouth, very clean -BTW, nothing like a Maestro at all -9.3/10 -Absolutely brilliant cigar!
