Mr. Brownstone Speedball (Robusto)

This cigar has a rustic dark wrapper with strong tobacco notes backed by a light cocoa aroma from the wrapper and foot. The bunch is firm with no soft or hard spots. The cold draw is perfect. The cigar is provided by Redland Cigar. Todayís beverage is a Lorelei Brewing Merdude Russian Imperial Coffee Milk Stout.



The initial flavor besides a good strong tobacco note is a chocolate liqueur with a little white pepper in the retrohale. The cigar is not burning evenly; it looks like all of the ligero is next to the binder on one side. Trying to correct, the cigar puts out very little smoke until the fire spreads to the rest of the cigar. I have smoked these before with no problems and will mark it as bad luck, as well as the nature of a hand rolled cigar.



After the first third the burn is still wonky but the flavors are great. Coffee notes emerging blending nicely. The burn is evening out some, itís just the construction of the cigar.



During the second third the burn continued to even out better. The flavors are steady and complex. The pepper notes in the retrohale have remained light throughout.



Approaching the final inch, I had wrwpper issues from removing the band. This is a really full bodied cigar. Having smoked them before I wonít dock too much from the score, which ends up 8.5/10. Joe Bob says check it out.
