Casa Cuba – robusto
The pre-light feel and aroma of the Casa Cuba is soft and oily, with a bit of a give to it. Smells of aged tobacco, leather, and soft earth.
The Casa Cuba Lights up easily with no runs and an easy draw. Even the first few pulls give a good volume of rich smoke. The flavor comes out immediately as smooth and velvety, with notes of soft woods and leather. The aroma augments the wood flavor with sandalwood and even some floral hints.
There is a smooth, even, overall burn that doesn’t allow runs. This is a sign of a well rolled cigar, and while common enough in premium tobaccos, a good roll still gets notice.
The overall experience is nice, mild, but with a full flavor and rich smoke that I enjoyed immensely. This is one of a batch that I received from a distributor, so I cannot speak as to the retail price, but it is one that I will pay attention to and look out for the next time I am in a lounge.
