I reviewed one of these Sultan Robusto's after 11 days rest.

Well, lets start at the beginning. The appearance of these cigars is superb. They have a slightly greenish hue to the wrapper but given the band it does not detract from the first impression. The wrapper is very mildly veined but even & consistant with a nice, oily sheen after 6 weeks rest @ 64%RH. These Robusto's also wear a very nicely applied three seam cap.

Construction : The cigars both had superb construction in referance to uniformity, filling & burn. There were never any noticeable burn issues that were not self correcting once turned. No hard or soft spots were apparent along the length.

Prelight : The wrapper smelt of freshly mown hay and the foot exuded a slightly vegetal aroma. The draw had the very slightest tug, perfect.

Upon lighting the flavors exhibited are ones of mild grass, dry tobacco and a very mild herbaciousness. Copious amounts of smoke are produced throughout this cigar with very little effort and the smoke has a good mouth feel, coating the palate like a creamy wave. Very nice sensation.

The ash released itself a little unexpectedly at one inch but revealed, once again, flawless construction through the center of the cigar.
Well into the first half of this smoke I found mild cinnamon through the nose and a grassiness on the palate, neither of which was remotely unpleasant. There is also a very subtle sweetness that I could not attribute to any distinct flavor. At the halfway point the herbaceous taste receded to be replaced gradually by very, very mild leather which continued until I put it down.

In summary : A mild to medium cigar in strength & flavor that exhibits an intrigue that is sure to be enjoyed by people that have a palate to suit. Given decent rest these cigars will improve even more IMHO.

Whomever rolls these deserves a pay rise !
