Review: Dominion Black Lotus Robusto

Dominion Black Lotus Robusto

5x50

Wrapper: Honduran Habano Colorado

Binder: Honduran Sumatra

Filler: Aged Nicaraguan & Honduran

Factory: Plasencia (Honduras)

Price: NA (Not available in the U.S. til 2015)

Cigars Smoked For Review: 1 (provided by manufacturer)

Pre-Light: Rustic, marbled, extremely oily, colorado wrapper, faint sweet earth. Great pre-light draw, coco, earth, and mustiness.

1/3: Starts very savory, meaty and spicy with the same musty notes found on pre-light draw but they only last for a few puffs. Coco and leather notes come in to dominate with a nice peppery retro and finish.

2/3: Sharp cedar, a huge aroma becomes noticeable, deep mossy earth, mouth watering tangy notes come and go. Strong leather dominates.

3/3: Char and campfire, coco, faint caramel sweetness, those tangy notes, a very different pine, and a savory spice finishes off the cigar.

Medium + body/strength, great draw, tons of rich/aromatic smoke, good burn and solid ash.

This was a rich, savory and very unique cigar with a enticing aroma. In my opinion this cigar (like most Plasencia rolled cigars) needs more rest to smooth out the rough edges. If I reviewed this same cigar two months from now it would be totally different but equally as unique. This cigar has a profile I have not encountered, I have smoked nothing like it in 2014, when these make it to the US market I would recommend picking up a 5 pack for sure.

88/100

They do not sell these in the US yet but they do sell them in Canada and Europe as of now. Very interesting smoke to say the least.
