Veritate robusto

I got this cigar from Smokey, and he got it straight from the source, he met the owner of the brand on facebook. Now I don’t know much about the brand, but their facebook page mentions a shop in Colorado, so this could be their house blend but I am not sure.
This robusto has a 5 x 50 size with a dark Nicaraguan wrapper, that looks rough and manly. The binder and filler are Dominican. The band is way too detailed, that makes it a bit messy. The construction of the cigar is good, the predraw is fine and gives me a dry tobacco flavor. The cigar has a very nice aroma of hay and honey.
The flavors are quite dry, I taste tobacco with a bit of coffee and after a centimeter I also get some grass and hay. Halfway the flavors change to wood and after 2/3rd the cigar gets a little musty, but not unpleasant.
I get plenty of white smoke. The ash is firm and I can’t complain about the draw. The cigar is a medium flavored cigar, and medium bodied at most.
Would I buy this cigar again? No, this cigar is too mild for me. But if you like mild cigars, give this one a try.
