Sabor de Esteli Robusto by Guayacan Cigars

Superb construction and a complex flavor mix contributed to a great overall smoking experience from this Sabor de Esteli Robusto by Guayacan Cigars.

Construction of the Sabor de Esteli is nothing short of top notch. A binder and fillers from Nicaragua are wrapped in a Colorado colored San Andreas wrapper that's nearly vein free.

From the cold foot there are light notes of fruit to the nose while the free cold draw has notes of sweet fruit. 

Once burning the first medium bodied puffs were flavorful with a mix of toast, mild tree fruit and light brown sugar. As the burn progressed up the body more flavors jumped in. There were hints of white pepper, nuts, cocoa, oak and espresso.

In the final third the body moves into the full range and the cigar finishes it's fifty minute burn with nice notes of fermented tobacco, toast, caramel and a sweet lingering aftertaste on the palate.

Overall this Sabor de Esteli Robusto was a real treat to smoke. If you have the chance to pick on up, don't pass it up.
