    Thanks for the review. The SCR sounds like a nice follow up to the Tempus for a good mid-day cigar as you suggested. I look forward to trying these. I think the torp would be my size of choice.

    Nice review. I have a couple ABs that have been kicking around in my humi since July. I may have to bust one out now.

    I am a big fan of the MAXX line of ABs, I’m looking forward to smoking one of theses.

    I fired up the SCR Gran Robusto on a perfect day in Atlanta yesterday. Found the the size to be just right for a 90 min outside smoke in the sunshine. Cool even burn, woody, and very smooth tea notes. Held its flavor balance down to the nub. Not the in your face flavor of the Tempus(don’t get me wrong I love the Tempus). I find the SCR and the AB Family Blend to be similar in flavor and stregth. Classy cigars. This is a great gift cigar.

    Glad you enjoyed it, it truly is a pleasant cigar. The SCR is not a “flavored” cigar though, I don’t smoke them either. The sweetness is a trait of the tobacco.

    Smoke Well,

    Great review. Last week, after reading this I finally dug into a robusto that had rested for a couple of years. I have to say the SCR is a treasure of a smoke. Rich, balanced flavors with an almost perfect burn all the way to the nub. Was more of a medium to full experience for my palate. Filled my whole head with sweet spices and leather. Very similar to a Padron 1926. Enjoyed it with some Crown Royal Black, which paired up really well. I’ll be ordering more, very soon.

    I made the mistake of ordering a box of the SCR Torpedos (no longer produced) – the draw is very loose (but can be influenced by managing the cut thanks to the torpedo shape) but you can’t do anything about the bland taste. This is a very one-dimensional cigar. I’m hoping the wife gets pregnant so I can give these away.
