    The Griffin’s Fuerte Robusto is a very decent cigar, it is mild enough to be had as a morning cigar with a cup of coffee but can also be smoked in the evening with a glass of wine. Creamy tobacco flavors with a little spice – a pretty nice bouquet. It is recommended to let this one sit in the humidor for a while for better results.

    Appearance : [rating:5/5]
    A very attractive piece. The wrapper had no imperfections that I could find and was really beautiful, oily and smooth.

    Construction : [rating:4.5/5]
    Among the ones I’ve smoked, I always had a decent construction. The burn is regular and the draw is easy (sometimes, I found it a little loose which resulted in the smoke being hotter than usual).

    Flavor : [rating:4.5/5]
    Right off the bat, I was surrounded by creamy tobacco flavors. The Griffin’s Fuerte Robusto provides amazing amounts of smoke from start to finish. Mild and elegant in the first third, it can show some temper in the middle with few spicy notes (if the cigar is not aged properly, you might notice a few harsh notes). Black pepper is there in the last third which is very dynamic. Good evolution of flavors.

    Value : [rating:4/5]
    At $7 a piece, it is definitely not a bargain, yet I don’t think that it’s overpriced.

    Overall Rating : [rating:overall/5]
    I really liked the Fuerte Robusto. Flavorful and tonic.

      You hit the right notes for ME: “tonic” and “creamy.”

      I do not think I’ve seen these around though…

      I love these cigars especially in the smaller sizes. The flavor and strength is spot on.
