Those who like the trendy short and thick cigars will not be disappointed when they get this short yet intense Petit Robusto. A dark maduro wrapping leaf hints as the nature of this vitola, which will not dominate over the smoker, but will only flirt with his senses for about 30 minutes. It is characterized by a soft and soil start, much like its bigger brother Epicure N2. The unfolding is progressive, without being aggressive. This is an incredibly pleasant cigar, recalling Cuba's happy times. Although it feels like a freshly wrapped cigar, its aroma unfolds intensively and an a additional maturing is not really necessary. The finale is impressive. You will not be able to stop smoking this cigar, even during the second stage, risking to burn your fingers. An exquisite cigar, acclaimed as one of the best for 2004.
