    This review comes courtesy of Sebastian Fuentes, our reader from Argentina.

    The Francisco de Miranda cigars were introduced in the Argentinean market in 1999 by a group of young entrepreneurs who are passionate for the smoke of good quality cigars to satisfy a segment of young smokers who were demanding a fine cigar within an accessible price.

    The cigars are hand-made in the factory located in Santiago de Caballeros from four years vintage tobacco leaves grown in the Cibao Valley with a mixture of Olor Dominicano, San Vicente and Piloto Cubano tobacco selected by the master blender Victor de la Cruz.

    The Francisco de Miranda Robusto Bordeaux is a premium cigar made with the highest standards and a strict quality control.

    Here is the review of it.

    Appearance : [rating:4/5]
    Shiny and silky wrapper with no imperfections, balanced weight. The Connecticut leaves give the cigar a smooth appearance without any marks or veins. The band with the brand logo underlines the quality of the cigar.

    Construction : [rating:4/5]
    Compact structure, firmly packed with an excellent termination and a steady burn, the cigar gives an abundant amount of smoke.

    Flavor : [rating:4/5]
    Woody taste, balanced smoke with a pleasant aroma. Smooth blend, aromatic and refined, the flavor improves with a nice glass of a red Argentinean wine.

    Value : [rating:5/5]
    Excellent price/quality ratio and very accessible for its money value.

    Overall Rating : [rating:4/5]
    Outstanding. I personally smoke this cigar regularly since 2006 and I enjoy every time the quality of a product that never fails. This Robusto is a great choice for beginners and an excellent option for experienced smokers. I offer them to all of my smoking friends and they are always delighted. I think every smoker should always keep a few Francisco de Miranda in their humidors.

      I’ll be in Argentina about a month from now. I will definitely have to give this one a try. Thanks for the review!

      Looking for a decent smoke in Buenos Aires that does not consider the somewhat pricey Cubans – I came across this cigar in a local cigar shop just on the outskirts of Buenos Aires.

      A good smoke – typical of Dominican Republic produce and not too heavy on the palate. Well constructed and delightful aroma (although the mother-in-law did not agree).

      Would recommend this as your everyday indulgence and with it being well priced (locally) – I will be taking a few back to the UK…

      Excellent cigar. Agreeable Blend who allows to enjoy it to plenary meeting. Unbeatable armed, at a height of the most famous cigars. Constant quality, there are no differences between the different games. Highly competitive price. Advisable 100 %.

      Not familiar with this brand. I’ll keep my eyes open for it and give it a try. Thanks for the review, well done.

      Very good cigar, well constructed with a raisonable price. Personally I prefer the double corona, the best choice of the brand.

      Kind of a blotchy wrapper. I haven’t seen them before. I may have to take a peek for them. Thanks for taking the time to review them.

    • D******

      The wrapper, want to try this one only because of the wrapper. It is too beautiful.

      Sebastian, are there any flavors besides wood? Maybe some hardly noticeable notes?

      Looking at the wrapper it looked a little sickly/Pale — Not clean/clear. Sounds like one for the sampling — Nice review!
