One of the first things I noticed about the Aladino Classic Robusto was that there was nothing special about the Aladino Classic Robusto. At least not in how it looks.
While this is a great-looking cigar, no additional resources were put into making a fancy label with added flare. That said, this cigar was, well… classic. The wrapper leaf was medium brown in color. The label was basic. The foot showed several stems.
Giving the cigar a sniff, the Aladino Classic was leafy, spicy, and had plenty of tobacco smell. With an aggressive cut, the stems from the foot contributed to a tight-ish draw. Once lit, I tasted an odd combination of smokey beef jerky and leaves.
Will the visible stems keep this from being a good cigar? Is the Aladino Classic Robusto worth almost $9? Let's smoke it and find out.
Wrapper: Honduran Habano
Binder: Honduran Corojo
Filler: Honduran Corojo, Honduran Habano
Smoke Time: 69 minutes
I was able to smoke my Aladino Classic robusto for right at 69 minutes, and I enjoyed it quite a bit. I was totally surprised at how sugary-sweet this cigar was. It was almost like candy. For a non-flavored cigar, this cigar sure had some interesting flavors.
When smoking the cigar for the review, I didn't know how much this cigar cost. And, even at a theoretical price point of $14, I found the Aladino to be a good value. But, it comes in at under $9.
The Aladino Classic Robusto is a great cigar, and it earns a CigarScore 5.
