JM's Dominican Corojo Robusto

JM's Dominican Maduro Robusto Cigar
If you know me, you know I'm always hunting for acceptable budget cigars. I've smoked quite a few of these JM's Cigars in the past and I think they're pretty good for a sub $5.00 Cigar. Let's see how this JM's Dominican Corojo Robusto smokes out.

Like the others, this cigar has a beefy looking wrapper. This Corojo wrapper is Colorado Maduro colored, plus there's some nice sandpaper-like tooth. Sure, it has some pretty good veins, there's a wrapper wrinkle or two but the seams are tight and it's packed well full length. From the cold foot there are aromas of sour cream with chocolate and the end cap is pre-punched. The firm draw has notes of toasty cocoa. So far so good.

Once the foot is toasted and burning the first medium bodied puffs have notes of cocoa and dark brown sugar. The cigar puts out a nice volume of smoke and it leaves a dark gray ash. As the burn moves up the cigar, there are other flavors of chocolate, damp leather, toast, earth and coffee. It finished it's forty-five minute burn with a flavor mix of leather and black pepper. The flavor mix isn't complex, but it's fairly tasty and the cigar had a razor sharp burn line.

Overall for the price point this was a pretty good cigar. If your looking for a budget cigar or just a knock around yard 'gar I think this one fits the bill pretty well.

If the mood strikes you, most of these JM's Cigars are available in the robusto vitola for around $3.00 each from Famous Smoke Shop.
