Sosa Robusto Cigar
If you look at the image of this cigar you can see that construction wise this cigar is top notch! The oily wrapper contains only the finest of veins and the Connecticut broad-leaf is wrapped on with near seamless care. Feeling down the body there are no hard or soft areas and testing the foot for aromas, there are notes of spicy cedar and earth. Once the end is clipped the same flavors show up while sampling the free cold draw.

As the cigar burns there are flavor notes of toast, spicy cedar, earth, cocoa, molasses and rich tobacco. I wouldn't call this cigar complex in the flavor mix department, it's just a solid, good tasting medium body cigar.

The even burn creates plumes of smoke from both ends and leaves behind a firm, light gray ash that falls near the half way mark.  Also, a nice oil ring develops on the wrapper ahead of the burn.

For a budget stick, I think this cigar has a lot to offer.
