Review - Cusano 18 Double Conneticut Robusto - 89/100


The Cusano 18 Double Conneticut Robusto is a robust cigar in many ways. It is a medium bodied smoke with a great balance between strenght and subtle nuances. It has a rich taste of tobacco and very thick smoke.

The unlit aroma is that of a chocolate. The start was a little off in my opinion, but it quickly stepped up and developed into a great smoke. The taste profile of the Conneticut Robusto is mainly built on a sweet leathery flavor with woody notes on the finish. It is also a creamy smoke with some vague hints of berries at the mid section of the cigar.

The outer wrapper of the two 18-years-old Conneticut wrappers - from which the name 18 Double Conneticut - has a really shiny golden honey color to it. No major veins either to ruins its beautiful appearance. The rolling has been done with extreme care and the cigar feels perfect n your hand. The draw is great and the burn is even.

In its total, the Cusano 18 Double Conneticut Robusto is a great smoke, which reminded me of some Partagas cigar. It has the same strenght and charasteristics as the Partagas Milles Fleurs or the Petit Coronas Especiales, although, it also has an unique profile, that separates it from all other cigars.

This cigar is indeed worth trying... And it can be bought from Paul Bugge with an affordable price.
