Fratello Oro Robusto

Very smooth Connecticut shade wrapper with a firm bunch and a generous draw. Cut well with a Xikar-V. Lit easily and drew clean.

After a bit of “off-lighter” adjusting, the cigar is burning very even. And, as I have come to expect from a Fratello, there’s a lot more flavor than you would expect from a Connecticut shade cigar. Nice nuanced tobacco notes with plentiful smoke and a lot of cedar and leather flavors with only a touch of pepper in the retrohale. Overall a light to medium bodied cigar that is more medium than expected.

After the first third the cigar is producing plentiful smoke and flavors including tobacco, cedar and leather with a light sweetness. The burn continues to be perfect and the ash is holding nicely.

During the second third a bit of ginger emerges, adding to the already complex smoke profile. This cigar might be a bit “light” for some palates, but should not be sold short. Also, the construction is immaculate.

Approaching the final inch, this cigar continues to perform like a champ. Much like last year’s Boxer and hopefully like the much anticipated Navetta, the Fratello family shows that they know how to put together a fine cigar. 8.5/10, Joe Bob says check it out.
El Gringo permanence...

Eleven dead bodies. One dead cat. No breasts. Joe Bob says, "Check it out."

More capacious than an elephant's scrotum, and just as difficult to get your hands on...

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