Background Info

This cigar is not a regular release, it can only be found in the H. Upmann travel humidor that was released in 2007. It’s a great looking travel humidor and comes with six robustos inside. If you are looking for a six-cigar robusto travel humidor that looks incredibly sexy, this is a no brainer.

I have been looking forward to trying a cigar from the Trinidad line for quite some time. Although the price of the Robusto Extra scared me off a bit, I ended up splurging on one because I couldn't seem to find a Trinidad available in any other format in Marseille. Needless to say, when I eventually lit this baby up, I was expecting a great deal from it.

While in Vegas a few weeks ago, I picked up two of these cigars. As I understand it, Casa Fuente is the only place where you can purchase a black label Forbidden. However, the cigar is the same blend as the regular Opus X banded LBMF.

This is a very special cigar. Not only did this blend lead to the AVO 787 but this is the only LE to have a different sized European release. The original AVO 22 was 5 7/8″ x 50 while the European release has a ring gauge of only 41. The Europeans historically prefer thinner cigars hence the change. I got my hands on one of these in a trade and couldn’t wait to smoke it.

This is probably the cigar that I wanted the most from the Limited Editions sampler. Ramon Allones Eminencias was released in 2005 to the Swiss market to celebrate the 160th anniversary of the brand. It is called Eminencia in honor of the factory where Ramon Allones were initially rolled. The vitola's name is Francisco and it's close to a corona gorda. There was a re-release in 2007 but the one I smoked is from the original release, considered as more successful. I was ready for a royal treat.

Wow, this is one beautiful cigar. It is satiny and smooth to the touch. The cellophane is yellow from 13 years of contact with this beautiful Connecticut Shade wrapper.

The pre-light draw was easy and the cigar lit very easily from the flame of my IM Corona lighter. The flavors, as expected were mild, but numerous. I was hit with waves of cream and wood, leather and nuts, with some of the Kelner mustiness thrown in as well.

The ash burned red hot leaving the most striking white ash I have ever seen. It did not heat up the cigar too much and the burn was dead on even. The exhale is rich with creamy coffee and nuts with some leather and grass.

The Davidoff Mille 3000 burned flawlessly another example of the artistry of Henrik Kelner. I enjoyed every minute I spent with this cigar!

Overall the cigar was creamy and woody, mild but with a lot of flavor still after 13 years. It was a pleasure to get the opportunity to try it!

I'm bringing you something special today. Cohiba Maduro 5 Genios, a custom robusto-sized cigar introduced in 2007, is indeed an elite treat. At over $20 each, it is not an everyday smoke (well, at least for me) and I only reward myself with one on very important occasions.

This is an exclusive from Holt’s to celebrate their 110th Anniversary (really?). Here’s a blurb from their site:

To celebrate Holt’s 110th year of business our good friends the Padrons decided to blend a brand new, extra-special cigar exclusively for our customers: The Padron Legacy. Not only is this a momentous release due to the fact the Padron’s rarely produce anything new, but also because the cigar itself is spectacular. An incredibly well-aged blend of all Nicaraguan tobaccos in this gem, providing it with a complex, but balanced, full-bodied flavor boasting layers of earth and leather interwoven with nuts and spices, culminating in a smooth, chocolaty finish.

Now normally I buy local, but this LE I could not resist!
