The stunning box- pressed 550 Robusto from the CLE Prieto line, offered a very satisfying, slow burning smoke. A highly fragrant sweet tobacco aroma and medium-full body flavors of anise, dark roast coffee, earth, and pepper remained put this tasty stick on my all-time favorites list.
Flawless wrapper construction but inconsistent filler that did not easily stay lit. This smoke has little to no spice or peppery notes, but smooth earthy flavors. Decent medium strength box-press for the money.
