Don Lino Africa Robusto: Quick Review

Don Lino Africa Robusto
I picked this Don Lino Africa up in a sampler some time, some where, but other than that I don't remember. The cigar has a stout, toothy, maduro wrapper with hints of fruit from the foot and spicy cedar from the free cold draw.

First impression. This is a pretty nice cigar. A good tasting mix of fruit, oak, earth and cocoa, were my reward for lighting up this stogie. Along the way there were other flavors of, toast, charcoal, molasses, but I was in for a big surprise. Right at the mid point the flavor mix shifted to bold, full bodied, burnt mocha and never waivered to the very end. Wow.

While browsing a catalog the other day I ran across this cigar and thought to myself, "nah it's probably not very good", not remembering there was one tucked away in a humidor here at home. Well I was definitely wrong, this cigar was the bomb! It had greatest construction and fantastic flavors. If you get the chance to smoke one of these don't pass it up!
