    Nice review! I have a box of the HU Robusto LE 2012, and a box of the HU Royal Robusto. When I received these boxes last year, I just put them away in my humidor and forgot about them. Thanks to your review, I will break out one of each and give them a comparison test. Lately, I have been working on a 50 cab of HU Magnum 46, 2009 box code. These have aged nicely, and are very smooth right now.

    I love the LCdH HU Royal Robusto. It would be interesting to get your thoughts on a comparison of the two…

    I have a box of the same date and smoked three so far.I do totally agree with Dr Fever’s taste review about these H.Upmann Limitada 2012, except that mine are better constructed. Maybe the Torcedor had a ”bad hair day” when he rolled them :-)But these are gorgeous cigars anyway!!! Thanks for the review.

    I received the mail with the note of the review of H.Upmann Robusto Limited Ediction 2012 and I appreciate the reveiw of this cigar. As I wrote in a precedent comment I have a little project to compare the actual cuban cigars production and relative brand, shape and vitolas, with the same cigar hand made before 2003. This is a virtual cut off related at time of aging almost ten years and becouse in the last ten years many thing about habanos changed. More realistic I think that the beginning of great changes in habanos world was more or less about last yeears of last century. Nevertheless in the case of H.Upmann Robusto in regular production of this famous brand (one of my favourite) never was made a vitola de galera robusto (ring gauge 50, lenght 124 mm.), the H. Upmann cigar that more is similar to size to this new robusto is the Connoisseur N.1 a vitola de galera named Hermosos n.4 (ring gauge 48, lenght 127) also named with a common name of corona extra. The differences in size with a robusto are very little, so becouse I have in my humidor a wood box of Connoisseur N.1 made in 1999 (in that period withot anilla) I smoke one of these cigars and I write my impression. If I find a new H.Upmann Robusto L.E. 2012 I try to compare this two cigars in the purpose of my little “sperimental” project. Bye. A. Mombello.

    Dear Mr. Trinidad very good idea comparize this new robusto by HU with Royal robusto a large size respect the new Robusto, maybe the tobacco blend is similar, Magnum 46 an excellent cigar is smaller I know it I have smoked almost 30-40 of them. So I am interested to knoe what do you thin about my idea to comarize same cigars of ten years ago and the idea od comaprize HU Conoisseur n.1 with this Robusto the nearest by size in HU vitolas. Bye.

    As I wrote this night I smoked a H. Upmann Connoseut N.1. My box have codes SCO NOV 00 SCO is the La Habana Factory NOV 00 is the date of production november 2000 vitola Hermoso n.4 (ring gauge 48 lenght 127) very near to the size of HU Robusto EL 2012. My cigar is classic Colorado, with optimal construction and aroma of aged tobacco with note of leiither, after lightning normal smoke output with acid and spicy notes, smoking the first impression is a cigar with strong-medium intensity, spicy taste with peanuts and ginger flavour. During smoking cigar has a good costant combustion. The taste become more decise from second half with note of wood, less spicy always with a little bit acid note mixed with dark chocolate smell in the end this cigars became mote decise and variable typical character of HU cigar. In my opinion this aged Conoosseur N.1 seems a little version of Double Corona EL 2001 one of the best cigar never produced by H.Upmann brand. I hope to have a new Robusto EL 2012 to compare with this Connoseur N.1.

    I smoke one of these when I first bought the box 6-9 months ago and it was pretty rough. I will have to try another now and see how it is coming along. Thanks!

    I am sorry but I made an error in my last comment about H.Upmann Robustos EL 2012. I intend to say that Connoisseur N.1 of 2000 is a little version of Double Robustos EL 2005 a cigar similar but with a different length. HU made only one prominientes in a selected humidor series.

    Damn, I wish I could get these for $27 each. At my local they’re $52 each but I got 4 on Special for $35 each. God damn Australian tobacco taxes >_<
