“Bona Vita Natural” Robusto (5x50) CC Rating: 88
This robusto had a milk chocolate colored wrapper with no tooth and extremely small veins. From the start the construction really impressed me. The pre lit aroma consisted of a faint peppery tobacco. The ash was dark grey in color and the burn was razor sharp. The draw was tight but produced tons of mild to medium bodied smoke. The first third provided flavors of slightly sweet bread and wood notes on the draw with the wood notes continuing into the finish. I quickly came to realize that this cigar would make a wonderful morning or breakfast stick. Approaching the second third, the sweetness had died down. Leaving me with a very faint sweet bread and tobacco note on the draw and finishing with a ceamy tea and wood note. At the half way point, the draw consisted of a creamy and milky coffee and wood flavor on the draw, with notes of leather and wood on the finish. I couldn’t get over the overall performance and flavors this cigar was giving off! The final third didnt have many further transitions. The draw provided flavors of a slightly sweet creamy coffee and bread flavor. With creamy smooth tobacco and faint peppery wood notes on the finish. In my opinion, this cigar would match up against cigars with the same flavor profile, costing three or four times as much. If you ever have a chance to smoke this cigar, do so right away! If you enjoy Connecticut sticks or mild sticks in general, this would be a great candidate as an everyday smoke! Try one for yourself and Stay Toasting!
