Don Tomas Clasico Robusto

During a recent trip to Cigar Train, I was scratching my head trying to decide upon something to smoke on the drive home. After a few minutes Casey pointed out the box of Don Thomas Clasico robusto aging away on the shelf. Well it looked good to me so I grabbed one. This is what I discovered during the drive home...

Don Tomas Clasico Cigar
After unwrapping and cutting the cigar, I found cold flavor notes from the foot of rich tobacco, cedar and black tea. Testing the draw, it was free and had flavor notes of tobacco and cedar. 

Once the cigar was burning the most predominate flavor was earth mixed with a bit of brown sugar. As the razor sharp burn progressed it left behind a firm white ash and other flavors slowly developed into the mix. I found notes of molasses, hay, wet straw, oak and peat. In the first third the strength was mild, but by the final third it had developed more into the medium body range.

This was a nice cigar. It had good flavors, great burn and a nice ash. I would purchase this cigar again.
