Size: Double Robusto
Little Havana Miami
Flavor profile: medium to full bodied smoke
Wrapper: Habano Ecuador Rosado
Binder: Habano Nicaragua
Filler: Habano Nicaragua
Construction: smooth, oily, medium-dark wrapper, dark brown wrapper

I originally tried this cigar from the Cigar Haus in New Braunfels Texas. I had never seen this brand before but the look of the label and the silky brown wrapper called out to be smoked. I found the wrapper to be tightly rolled but it has a smooth draw. The favors are earthy and spicy but not overpowering. It is well constructed and had a even burn producing plenty of smoke. The cigar starts with a full body but mellows a bit as you finish the first third. The ash is white and compact falling off in inch and a half clumps. I smoked the Sublimes to the nub and it finished as it started, a medium to full flavored, smooth enjoyable cigar. At $6 a stick it was well worth the price of admission. A hard to find brand but well worth the hunt!

Yes. I still enjoy trying new stuff. I have no doubt you can get all the Cubans you want where you are from too.

Not really. Got a couple R&J from my mother-in-law in Edmonton. Can't say they lived up to the hype.
