I have smoked a lot of cigars in my life, but when I smoked one of these for the first time, I knew I had something special. To me there is no equal to this cigar.
A surprise indeed. I like this cigar because it has a nice aroma and taste. It leaves a sweet taste on the palate, just enough to make you want more. It's big, thick, and chewy. It's a winner!
The Quesada Tributo Julio robusto (5"x 50) retails for about 6 clams a stick, when you buy a box of 24. They aren't cheap, but they do deliver a lot of full bodied flavor & complexity. More than almost any Dominican offering in recent memory. Hailing from the Matasa factory, construction is pristine, with a triple cap. The unbelievably complex outer wrapper is a habano 2000 hybrid of 4 different strains, making it rather unique. And tasty! The binder is yet another leaf. This time a ligero habano offering. Draped over a firmly packed bundle of Nicaraguan & Domincan ligeros, you can see why this blend is bolder, full bodied & fuller flavored than most Dominican vitolas. It is a leather & earth stick, with nuances ranging from mild spice to a heavy palate coating green peppercorn note. If your favorite is Macanudo, you should probably look elsewhere, but if , like me, you drool over Diesel & praise Prensado, Tributo might be your cup of tea. That is, if you can afford them. That Diesel (Unlimited) I mentioned, is bigger, better & costs much less. But Tributo is no slouch. It gets a 90/100 in my book. As usual, that would probably be higher if the blend were a bit more affordable.
Tribute (Julio) As of this entry I've had 6 of these cigars. Each has been quite enjoyable. A very good cigar albeit slightly difficult to categorize. Construction is awesome, nice and firm, foot to cap. A reddish-brown Habano wrapper slightly toothy with very clean seams and a triple cap. Opens with a surprising rush of pepper and spice which quickly mellows to a crisp, clean bready/spice combo. The spice is a tough to call, not as sweet like anise but certainly not bitter either. There's a dominant nutty citrus on the front of the tongue which remains on the palate as you make your way to the midpoint. The stick returns to the woody, bread-like mysterious spice combo with about 2 inches to go. Burn is consistent and clean. Ash is dark grey and holds firm. Band removes clean, no glue on the wrapper (a pet peeve of mine). That elusive spice dominates the final third. I'd call it medium bodied throughout although the spiciness lasts on the tongue so maybe call it medium-full. I'd definitely smoke this cigar again and recommend it to others. Fortunately CI allows that to happen on a budget.
