La Palina Mr. Sam Robusto Cigar

La Palina Mr. Sam Robusto Cigar
I've never had the chance to smoke a La Palina cigar before this one. Boy, have I been missing out. At $12.99 this La Palina Mr. Sam Robusto is a bit on the pricey side, but it turned out to be worth every penny. Here's what I found.

The Mr. Sam is wrapped in an oily, nearly vein free, Colorado colored Ecuadorian wrapper. It's packed firmly full length and the seams are almost invisible to the eye. Checking the cold foot there's a nice fermented tobacco aroma, while the free draw tastes both sweet and spicy at the same time.

Once the cigar is burning there are flavors of toast, cashews, sweet, spicy Spanish cedar, caramel, sweet cream and vanilla. It also produces a large volume of chewy, medium bodied smoke. As the Mr. Sam burns, a deep oily sheen develops on the wrapper and after a satisfying sixty-five minutes, the cigar finishes with a great mix of coffee with cocoa.

Overall, I thought this La Palina Mr. Sam robusto was a fantastic cigar. It had over-the-top construction, flavors and burn. If you haven't had the chance to try this cigar yet, I think you are missing out.
