This 5 ¾ x 52 gran robusto is made up of a San Andres Mexican wrapper, two binders from Mexico and Nicaragua, and a filler of a Nicaraguan and Mexican blend. The Mexican tobacco used in the make up of this cigar comes from a Cuban-seed Criollo mix. The gran robusto size has a tight dark brown wrapper with a few visible veins but almost invisible seams.
The initial draw is tight but offers up a sweet profile of cocoa, nuts and a hint of dried fruit. Towards the end of the first third, slight hints of spice and leather have shown up but overall the cigar maintains a sweeter profile. The draw has opened up but with the tightness of the cigar, the ash isn’t clingy to the cigar as well as it did in the start and needs to be tapped a bit more. The second third has notes of cherry, hazelnut espresso, and a cinnamon spice to it. Despite being tapped often the burn is very even all the way to the end.
The final third is showing a bit more strength with more apparent spice notes but the presence of graham crackers showing up as well keeps it from becoming a full bodied cigar. The Casa Turrent has a very complex and satisfying flavor profile and an overall medium body strength.
