Winston!, 17th Mar 2017
Reviewer: The Cigar Authority
The cold draw of the Winston Churchill Robusto reminds me a little bit of spearmint gum, with some of that classic Kelner barnyard taste as well. The nose off the foot of the cigar has more barnyard aromas as well. Just based on the cold draw of the cigar this does indeed seem slightly stronger than the Toro.
Once the cigar is lit, there is some nice spice on the palate and through the nose. There is some coffee notes and a hint of cedar present as well on the first third of the smoke. As the cigar progresses the coffee notes fade, and the cedar and earth remain.
In the second third of the cigar some leather develops, and the coffee notes return into the mix. The strength of the cigar is definitely more full than the toro, however the toro seemed to have more complexity.
The last third of the Winston Churchill Robusto delivers notes of robust coffee, with hints of leather and a slightly woodsy finish. There is some spice that remains on the nose throughout the cigar.
