I got this 6×54 king of the world robusto larga from a friend who bought a few of these paper wrapped smokes from an American retailer as these Honduran sticks aren’t for sale in The Netherlands. Like I said, the cigars are wrapped in paper, just as the Cuban Fonseca cigars.
Once I removed the paper wrap I see a dark and dry wrapper with two big veins which make the cigar look rough and tough. The triple cap gives the cigar a Cuban touch, just as the smell which is like wood and a barnyard. The construction is great and so is the predraw, although the predraw is quite tasteless.
After lighting the cigar i taste some chocolate and after half an inch I taste some wood and a hit of lemon. The wood is quite dry. After a third I taste wood, less lemon than before and some herbs.
Halfway I taste wood with some spicy herbs, not to be mistaken with pepper. I also taste a bit of sweetness. After two thirds the spicy herbs are the main flavor with some pepper in the aftertaste.
This cigar lasted me for an hour and twenty-five minutes. The draw was good and I got a lot of smoke. The with ash is firm. This cigar is full flavored and medium to full bodied.
Would I buy this cigar again? For 4 dollars a piece? Yeah, I might.
