Marrero Fuerte Gran Robusto

This cigar has an oily maduro wrapper in a box press format. The aroma from the foot is coffee and cocoa. The cold draw is perfect. This morning’s beverage is a Chameleon Cold Brew latte.



The initial flavors are sweet cocoa and coffee with a medium black pepper in the retrohale. A very short split occurred at the foot when I lit the cigar, but the very even burn consumed it quickly. This is a medium bodied cigar that is great with coffee in the morning.



A very satisfying earthiness joins the flavor profile in the first third. The smoke is very smooth and thick. The pepper notes in the retrohale have diminished some. The burn remains mostly even. The ash is solid although I tapped it after it passed one inch.



During the second third cinnamon notes joined the flavor profile. The cigar remains medium bodied and smooth as the flavors continue to develop. It went out at one point (mostly because I am smoking it very slowly) but relit easily. It continues to be burn evenly.



Approaching the final inch the complexity of flavors remains excellent. The cinnamon notes continue to stand out with the remaining flavors forming a solid base. The construction is also very good. 9/10, Joe Bob says check it out.

I just realized something: You win. Your life is officially way more f**ked up than mine.

There is only one thing in life worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.
