Cigar Review: Cornelius & Anthony The Gent Robusto

Initial Thoughts:

Cornelius & Anthony cigars are not any with which I'm too familiar. But, they've been around since 1866 (it says so right on the label), so I'm expecting a good smoke today!

The Cornelius & Anthony The Gent Robusto is a great looking cigar, but there's a vein running down the wrapper that's cause for concern. After cutting the end, the underlying tobacco looks a little bit green. And, after smoking about a quarter of an inch, an uneven burn started to develop.

Let's see how this goes…

Final Thoughts:

On one hand, the draw on this cigar has been great. However, the bad initial burn only got worse, and it was obvious this cigar wasn't properly dehumidified and aged.

Overall, the Cornelius & Anthony The Gent Robusto is just an “okay” cigar with a great draw and a terrible burn. I didn't love the flavors and I didn't think there was anything special about this cigar or the blend.

If you're going to spend time and money on a cigar, I want you to love it. And, because I think you should spend yours on other cigars, the Cornelius & Anthony The Gent earns a CigarScore 2.
