“With a final burn time of 2 hours and 11 minutes this was a very good cigar. There were not an over abundance of transitions, however there were a lot of nuanced flavors and a few transitions. Throughout there was almost always an underlying creaminess, wood, and saltiness. Then there were big moments of milk chocolate that went nicely with the saltiness and wood. The earth and pepper were subtle and accented the primary flavors. This was pretty different from the Robusto I smoked, which I expected given how different the vitolas are in the Patina portfolio. I recommend giving this cigar a go if you are not a fan of pepper and earth bombs, and lean towards softer, more complex, yet dark profiles.”
