Had the robusto tonight. Up front I detected gentle spice, lots of fruit, cream and some mild coffee notes. Med-full flavor, but never breaking the medium body barrier. My only complaint was that the draw was a bit tight, but overall a very very smooth stick. Never bitter, harsh or overwhelming.
Great Stick! Hints of spice as the review above (or below lol) mentions. Also mine (8 or so that I have smoked from various spots) have never been harsh. I actually never had one that had a bad or tight draw. Highly recommend.
I bought the robusto a few weeks back on my way home from work, having had a few extra dollars and a few hours on my hand to kill, i stopped at the local lounge and decided this was something i had wanted to try, so i decided to go for it. Sweet jesus, I am glad I did. simply put, this is the best cigar i have ever had. Off the light I was a bit skeptical because of the peppery notes coming off the front end, but after about 2 draws those notes cleaned out and turned into a light hint of pepper and leather, the flavor stayed pretty consistent throughout the entire cigar, picking up a little bit of spice on the back half. The finish was very clean and also added a slight note of earthy flavor. This cigar reaffirmed my opinion that the best cigars on the planet are coming from the Pepin, with this creation taking center stage. Do not be surprised when this shows up in cigar of the year talks from various cigar related publications.
I love Pepin's line of cigars but La Duena smokes like lower end Rocky Patel. It's mild all the way. Aroma is good but no pepper at all. IMHO, this a bargain cigar with a little touch of Coffee. Ladies may enjoy this. I would pass on this one and stick with fathers line.
Smooth, clean, great smoke, mellow and relaxing. I really enjoy this cigar when I am not in the mood for something spicy.
Don Pepin should be proud of Jenny, this cigar is great from foot to nub. I smoked the robusto and the ash held on for 3/4 of the cigar, the construction, flavor, draw everything was perfect. The My Father factory has been putting out some great cigars. They should be proud.
Excellent cigar, great flavours, nice draw, need to get more of them.
Great cigar, if you want something very strong, this is it. Have a steak first, then light one of these bad boys up.
Thought these were awful off the truck. I'm always surprised at what a year in the humi can do. These are now on my "buy lots more" list. Just incredible stick from my favorite blenders.
