Presentation

H.Upmann Royal Robustos - 10 Cigars comes in a dress box with Habanos Packing Code CB-UW-n-10-n-10.

Dimensions:

Length: 135 mm

Diameter: 20.64 mm

Ring gauge: 52

Shape: Edmundo

Appearance:

The cigar is looking fantastic, with a perfect construction. The wrapper has a very dark chocolate brown color, and has a nice oily sheen. Only few veins are visible, nothing major. It is firm to the touch, only has a bit of give when squeezed. In addition to the H Upmann band, there is a second band carrying the La Casa Del Habano logo.

Smoking Notes:

Before lighting up

The wrapper smells of hay, barnyard, wood and cacao. The cigar cuts easily, the cold draw is perfect with just enough resistance and gives aromas of coffee and leaves some salty spice hints on the lips.

Burn/ Draw

Once lit the ashes burns slowly and holds well for about half an inch. The burn line isn’t perfect, slightly wavy, but the draw is perfect all through the cigar. The ash is quite flaky with a nice dark grey color. This cigar generates tons of smoke.

Initial third:

From the get go, the cigar greets you some woodsy flavors, joined with a spicy tang of green bell pepper on the lips and on the nose. The first puff reveals a medium to full body cigar, which is rich but not creamy. The first third is typical H Upmann, with lots of nuts (peanuts, almonds), cedar, hay, earth, dark chocolate and coffee. There are still some of spices, white and green pepper and just a bit of sweet notes of sugarcane, shortbread and vanilla. Few hints of lime and dry tobacco are also present. Overall, the first third is of medium strength, and slightly creamy at times.

Middle third:

In the middle third, the flavor profile is similar to the first one, with now more sweetness, of burnt caramel or honey. The chocolate taste is coming to the forefront, next to strong grassy hay notes. There are also notes of tea, and cinnamon and still this green pepper. The strength increased somewhat, whereas still in the medium bodied category.

Final third:

In the final third, the dominant flavors remain similar to the previous third, still lots of chocolate, coffee, hay, earth, tea and pepper. There is still sweetness from honey and caramel/toffee. Overall, it is a rather creamier third, but the strength increased once again, now a strong medium.

In summary, it is great cigar, lots of complexity and a unique personality.

Smoking time:

60 - 80 Minutes

Solid, smooth, and satisfying , 3/31/2019
By Uncle Groucho
With a box date of July 2016, there is enough age for the cigar to have matured. A good balance of spice and wood on the mouth before lighting. Mild at the beginning but more cedar after 20 minutes of burn time. The cigar lacks some refinement but I would mark that up to the cigar being a little dry after sitting out for a day or so after shipping. H Upmann remains my Cuban of choice and this offering is a solid representation of the brand. The value for 10 aged smokes at this price will be your decision but if you are seeking an excellent cigar for new and seasoned smokers, this is an excellent choice.

I bought 2 more boxes of these gems and I’m glad I did. I recently pulled a stick from a previous box and after aging a couple years it is magnificent.

I bought a box of the Royal Robustos on the recommendation of a friend, and upon smoking one, within the first ten minutes, I realized it was the best cigar I had smoked. The burn was perfect, the ash went a full two inches of grey/white perfection and the flavor was consistently delicious and cool until I could no longer hold onto the nub. So i bought four more boxes...I will hold them for as long as possible, which might not be very long!

I ordered these sticks on the reviews posted here. After smoking five of the ten this is my review. All five had serious burn problems requiring constant touching up. Three of the five did not draw well and one I had to ream to get through the first half before I discarded it. The flavor was good when I could actually enjoy it.
