CLE Cuarenta Robusto

CLE's Cuarenta Robusto
This sample provided by Cigar Train is the first chance I've had to smoke a CLE Cigars product and this CLE Cuarenta Robusto is a superb looking cigar. The well packed Honduran fillers and binder are covered with a silky smooth Colorado claro colored Honduran habano wrapper. The wrapper itself is oily, nearly vein free and was rolled on with near seamless perfection. From the free cold draw there are flavor notes of toast and nuts.

As the CLE Cuarenta Robusto burns, it produces a nice volume of smoke and has medium bodied flavors of toasted marshmallows, black pepper, toast, nuts, raw sugar, oak, leather and caramel. The fifty minute burn ends with a nice oil sheen on the wrapper and flavors of toast mixed with white pepper. A very tasty cigar!

Like I said, this was my first CLE cigar and to be 100% honest, I was impressed. If you're like me and haven't tried these cigars, you should!
