“Cusano LXI SunGrown” Robusto
This light milk chocolate colored cigar had a rough looking wrapper with slight tooth and a couple of medium sized veins. The pre lit aroma consisted of sweet peppery tobacco with a slight citrus note. The draw was very loose producing small amounts of airy, medium bodied smoke. The ash was a salt and pepper color and the burn was a little wobbly. The first third was producing flavors of a woody sweet tobacco on the draw which would quickly transition into a citrus like pepper note on the finish. When I reached the second third, the draw was proving to be a problem. It was as if I was sucking through an open straw and in this case, the result was extremely poor smoke production. The cherry was burning very hot and the cigar seemed as if it did not want to be smoked. I had two of these cigars to review however, the first was plugged and now this new problem. I believe this is not a reflection of Cusano because I have had many great Cusano cigars. I will be picking up more of these cigars to smoke and also too update my review. This is just another reminder that no cigar company is perfect. Stay Toasting!
