Cigar Review: PDR 1878 Capa Oscura Robusto

Initial Thoughts:

To be honest, I went into the PDR 1878 Capa Oscura Robusto with pretty low expectations. I've never heard of PDR before, I'm not familiar with their brand, and I don't quite understand the pigtail end cap.

However, the match-lit cedar lights the cigar with a great flavor. And, although the taste isn't as rich and smooth as other cigars, there is a hint of sweetness hidden in each puff.
