La Rica robusto

I bought this 4 ¾ x 50Nicaraguan cigar with the Ecuadorian wrapper in a shop in Antwerp last summer. It’s packed in a nice shiny yellow tube with the words “rich full flavour” written on the outside. The wrapper is rough an manly, raw and has some veins. The aroma is light, while the construction feels good. The predraw is fine and leaves a peppery flavor in my mouth.
A nice spicy leather flavor is what I taste when I lit the cigar with some wood on the background but both the spiciness and the wood disappear soon leaving me with a nice leather flavor. Halfway some creamy chocolate joins the leather and at the end all I can taste are nutty flavors.
The draw is fine and the cigar gives me a lot of white smoke. If I smoked this at the Vatican people would think there’s a new pope elected. The ash if firm and silver gray and the burn is flawless. Full flavored like written on the tube and medium bodied.
Would I buy this cigar again? Yes if I can find them for a nice price
