Pinolero Maduro Robusto: Quick Review

Pinolero Maduro Robusto
I picked up this Pinolero Maduro Robusto by A.J. Fernandez a couple of months back from Cigar Train for $7.99

The Pinolero is covered by a stout, toothy, maduro colored wrapper with tight seams and small veins. It's packed well full length and has a triple cap. From the foot there are notes of cocoa and toast, while the free cold draw tastes of bold spicy cedar.

The first few mouthfuls of smoke are full bodied and peppery coca mixed with oak. The pepper quickly fades as the cocoa turns into more of a milk chocolate flavor, plus there's a touch of leather. Other flavors soon follow, brown sugar, toast, molasses, wheat straw, coffee, cream and charcoal. All of this leads up to a great burnt mocha finish in the final third.

This Pinolero had a fantastic flavor mix, top notch construction, a razor sharp burn, and lasted for 55 minutes. It's another winner from A.J Fernandez!
