Amero Short Robusto

Amero, a Norwegian brand made in the Dominican Republic. You might think, hey, that sounds familiar and you are right, its the same Norwegian guy that own Viking cigars and his first attempt to make it in the industry was a collaboration with Willis Cabrera of the now also defunct Cabreras cigars. Together they made Amero, Chess and Hawk cigars.


Before the collaboration fell apart I met Hawk at the Intertabac trade show and he gave me a few samples to try, this Amero short robusto is the last of them so why not say goodbye with a review right?  Since the cigar never took off and the company is defunct I can not find any information about the blend, except that they used 2 to 3 year old tobacco to produce the cigar.


I like the 4×50 size, the cigar looks so cute as my wife would say and the little pig tail adds to the cuteness. The medium dark brown wrapper looks okay, it has a few veins. The ring is nice, green with the image of the American dollar bill where all the conspiracy theories are about and then Amero written in shiny golden letters. The construction feels good and like I said, the pig tail finishes the cigar. The cigar has a mild aroma that is a mix between acid and cinnamon.


I cut the cigar with a double blade guillotine cutter. The cold draw is fine and taste like spicy raisins. After lighting I taste a mild bitter coffee flavor. After half an inch I taste a mildly harsh cinnamon. Halfway I taste cinnamon and peper, slightly harsh. The final third starts harsh with pepper and cedar.


The draw is good, the smoke is thick and huge in volume. The ash is medium gray, layered and reasonable firm. The burn is good. The cigar is medium, both in strength and in flavor. The smoke time is forty five minutes.

Would I buy this cigar again? No, I won’t.

Score: 82
