Cuban Rounds robusto

I got this cigar from a friend in a trade and did some research because I never heard of the brand before. It turns out that it is a Nicaraguan short filler for JR Cigars with a binder and filler from Cuban seed tobacco with an EMS wrapper. A bundle of 40 of these robustos will set you back 60 dollars.
The cigar is a bit shorter than the 5 inch the JR website claims it is, it measured 4¾x50. The wrapper is dark and dry with a few thin veins. The construction feels good and I smell a tiny bit of wood. The predraw is fine and I taste dry raisin. The band is a complete Cohiba rip-off.
The first flavor I taste reminds me of dry autumn leaves with some wood, the flavors are a bit musty. I also taste a little bit of sweet chocolate.
After a third I taste more chocolate with some wood and after two thirds the flavors change into a dry but smooth wood with some herbs and sweet chocolate.
This cigar lasted me for an hour and ten minutes, which is not bad for a short filler robusto. I got a medium thick grey smoke. The draw and the burn are good, while the gray ash is quite firm. This cigar is medium bodied and medium flavored.
Would I buy this cigar again? Nah, don’t think so, although they are dirt cheap so they could be nice yardgars

    I found these dudes for $1.69 a stick in a small smoke shop. For the price they’re unbeatable. I prefer premium cigars, but I’m not Jack Nicholson, so for an every day smoke, you can’t go wrong. Save the high dollar stogies for special occasions. This is a great stick for the workin stiffs who have to watch their wallet. Can’t go wrong with the Cuban Round!

    I normally smike Quorum. So I suppose that certainly does not make me a connoisseur by any stretch, but I like them. I like sonething that with a strong robust flavor with a little bite, and I enhale ever so often being a cigerette smoker with aspirations of one day quitting for good. Cast aspersions on the Cuban Round all you want but I really like them. They are full flavored and have the little bit of bite that I like and the flavor seems pretty consistent through out the entire smoke. The place I buy from has a well maintained walk in humidor and I can really tell the difference when I grab an emergency smoke from another store who’s operators know nothing of purchasing fresh nor maintaining their product.
    When I go purchase my bundle of Quorum I will usually search for a treat to invest in. A single cigar that might cost two or three bucks to ten.
    Believe me cost has little to do when it comes to a good smoke as far as I can tell but admittedly I have never ventured past the ten dollar mark for a smoke.
    End statement: Quorum for everyday and an ocassional Cuban Round makes me pretty happy.
