The Casa Magna Colorado Robusto has been in my humidor for quite some time. Winter here in Michigan doesn't give me many chances to enjoy a fine stick. To top it off, a smoking ban will soon be taking effect in this wonderful peoples republic. I'll save that rant for later, I'm trying leave politics out of this blog.
Anyway, I started a bonfire in my backyard (because it is forty fricken degrees outside) Poured me a glass of the Dalwhinnie 15 year scotch, sat down and lit up this smoke.
My first impression was that this was a load on my palette, The draw was easy and there was plenty of smoke coming out. Since I was outside near a raging fire, I didn't get a good chance to catch much of the aroma, I'll know better next time.
The cigar was a pretty good, I thought it leaned slightly to the full bodied side, and was also a little surprised that it didn't burn as evenly as I thought it would, and as time went by, I had to take some strong draws to keep the smoke flowing. Perhaps that too was because I was outdoors, and there was a breeze coming though the yard.
The chocolate and spices that I experienced when I smoked it last night are still with me this morning. Overall I'd give give it a thumbs up, but since there other sticks I prefer better, I don't know when I'll try another of these again.

Why am I allowed to buy plastic crap from communist China but not allowed to enjoy a Montecristo from Cuba? Our hands off policy with Cuba needs to come to an end. In the mean time, I guess I'll just have to start sneaking Cuban cigars in from Windsor Ont.
Don't tell anyone ;)
