Puros Reynoso Almirante Robusto

03 Nov

After recently reviewing the Puros Reynoso Caballero, I was intrigued to try another cigar from Puros Reynoso. Today I chose to smoke the company’s flagship product made by the oldest connoisseur “Tabaqueros”, the Almirante in a Robusto size. This cigar is produced in limited quantities and is hand-rolled with long filler and aged for a period of four years in Creole Cedar containers

Size: 5 x 50

Wrapper: Maduro Connecticut

Binder: Dominican

Filler: Dominican

Strength: Medium-Full

Pre-Light
The Almirante is firm and a bit crisp to the touch. The wrapper is smooth and oily. The foot of the cigar has an earthy, slightly sweet aroma. The cold draw is predominantly earthy.
First Third
During the first half inch of the cigar, I get strong bursts of jalapeno-like pepper flavors on the front of the palate. The finish is long; it starts off with wood and transitions into toasty flavors. After the first half inch, the flavors of the front of the palate turn earthy with a touch of sugary sweetness. The finish begins with a light splash of pepper then fades to more toasty flavors.
Second Third
As I smoke into the second third of the Almirante, I pick up some lightly sweet fruity flavors, reminiscent of black cherry mixed with a very light pepper. The finish has a timid peppery flavor that gradually fades.
Final Third
The cigar transitions into a pleasant mixture of earth, sweet cedar and a touch of black pepper on the front of the palate. The finish starts off with woodsy flavors that give way to a light black pepper.
Overall Thoughts
The Almirante had a pleasantly easy draw with just the right amount of resistance from start to finish. The burn was consistent and even throughout the entire smoke, and at no point did the cigar require a touch-up or re-light. As one would expect from the appearance of this cigar, it is very well constructed. While a medium-bodied cigar, it is medium-full strength.

    Amazing cigar, after having smoked many Maduros, I rather smoke “Almirante” from Puros Reynoso.
