Correnti Robusto & Imperial -- Any Good?


Recommended Posts

I smoked both the Robusto and Imperial that I purchased from Correnti while in Toronto at my local B&M on Saturday the 13th. The selling point behind Correnti is that in a land of extreme tobacco taxation Correnti is the only local producer rolling their cigars with Cuban leaf for a reasonable price ($9-$15). If the leaf is Cuban only an expert would know . . . . . . . . . . .

My notes on both cigars are as follows:

- Cuban?

- Bland

- Sour

- Lots of smoke

- White Ash?

- Taste of cardboard

As you can see I didn't really think that much of the Correnti cigars I sampled. I would happily take a trip up to LCDH Toronto next time vs. smoking more of these.

Cheers and Happy Smoking!

Seems that appears to be the general consensus of those who've sampled their smokes. Hmmm :thinking:

Maybe they should add a few multi-country tobaccos to it to even it out with some flavor. I suggest a little Mata Fina Brazilian and raunchy Honduran as an additive...

I have some correnti's sitting around somewhere and can dig them out for anyone that may be willing to give a second opinion.

I have a feeling that there will not be a rush of takers on this offer.
