Don Tomas Classico Maduro Robusto Cigar Review

Maduro wrapper with a slight sheen of oils. The construction looks perfect. This should be a good cigar. I am having Maker’s Mark and a Cherry Coke with it.

My initial impression is that this is a decent cigar. I’m getting a very earthy flavor, almost like a grassy sweetness. There is also a bitterness to this cigar. The draw is a little too tight for my liking.

Very poor burn. Little over an inch in and I’m not liking it at all. In addition to the bitterness there’s now a sourness as well.

Burning quickly and wildly. What flavors there are in this cigar I do not like. And there aren’t that many flavors here to warrant a mention. Medium bodied.

I almost always finish a cigar. Things can change from the beginning to the end of a cigar. So, unless the cigar is just plain awful, I will give it the benefit of the doubt and finish it. I dislike this cigar so much that I cannot finish it.

  1. I am smoking one of these as I type. I agree fully with your review! It looked to be very well made. I wonder if the rather veiny wrappe leads to some of the uneven burning that I am also getting. It had a nice oily feel to it. The prelight draw was rather sweet like some nice sun dried raisins or other darker red fruits.

    I am very suprised by the smoking characterstics and not in a good way. Not super earthyness. Reminds me of nicely roasted peanuts. A few hints of flavors found in the pre light draw, but not enough for me to enjoy this one really. Looks like the 3 others I have will rest awhile to see if they improce.
