This cigar was just released this month and I'm excited to say that we just received shipment. This is a limited production with only 3,000 boxes made.  They will come in a beautiful burgundy box of 10.  I smoked the Robusto but found reviews for a Belicoso (5.5 by 52) and a Perfecto (6 by 53).  
Davidoff and Zino have released some really impressive cigars this year and this one is certainly no exception!

This cigar has a perfect construction, as always from Davidoff and Zino. It has a gorgeous, dark, oily, seamless wrapper.  The draw was a little loose, but did not affect the overall smoking experience.  The burn was nice and even.  This cigar is savory, creamy, slightly sweet, and a mild spice throughout.  Just a complex, robust fantastic smoke!!!

After smoking the robusto as well, I would concur, that the roll was slightly loose and the draw a bit heavy though not bad. This was a mild to medium cigar, very mild on spice and definitely Dominican in nature. Not to go crazy attempting to describe flavor, their was something intrigueing about this smoke. Kind of a toasted nutty citrus flavor at least to me.
