Initial Impressions

Blind Cigar Review: Victor Sinclair | Triple Corojo Robusto

Appearance: 88

“The appearance of this cigar is pretty average, a little lumpy, but no soft spots. The wrapper color is even, but the cap is lopsided and a little sloppy.” –Emmett (rhetorik)

This cigar was reviewed blind (no bands) by a panel of at least 4 reviewers. They did not know what they were smoking beforehand. The scores are an average of all the reviewers' scores with outliers removed. All of our cigars reviewed are shipped to the panelists with Boveda packs to ensure optimal smoking experience.

Aroma: 89

“There are notes of hay and leather with a tiny bit of chocolate.” –Milton (mjohnsoniii)

Construction: 89

“The overall construction is not too shabby, albeit not the best either. It appears rather solid with no soft spots. It’s not smooth at all with its profuse veins and a lumpy wrapper. The triple cap applied is slightly tattered but should be fine.” –Milton (mjohnsoniii)

First Third

Flavor: 90
Strength: Medium
Body/Complexity: Medium

“The first third was strong in bakers spice and earthy, rich tobacco. It was a bit hard to start, but had a quality burn line. It produced great smoke.” –Cindy (Ms_CindyLynn)

“Cocoa with a light peppery nutmeg and a sweet tasting tobacco on light up. Further in the pepper fades a bit and the cocoa begins to get creamy tasting.” –Ron (shuckins)

Second Third

Flavor: 89
Strength: Medium
Body/Complexity: Medium

“The same flavors from the first third consisted in the second. The retrohale produced a vanilla/cherry experience.” –Cindy (Ms_CindyLynn)

“This third has really brought out some of the baking spices and eased back on the leather and wood. There’s definitely still a spice, but I want to say it’s more of a clove and cumin spice now. Towards the end some more fruity notes come out, perhaps cherry.” –Emmett (rhetorik)

Final Third

Flavor: 87
Strength: Medium
Body/Complexity: Medium

“The strength has picked up in this third with some more of the red pepper I got in the first third. The oak has made a nice comeback as well. The finish has become a little salty and is lasting a long time. I didn’t enjoy this third as much as the others, but it was still very good.” –Emmett (rhetorik)

“Finishes with only a hint of creaminess as the pepper shows back up, driving the nutmeg to the rear, but leaving a sweet cedary tobacco flavor ’til the very end.” –Ron (shuckins)

Overall Impressions

Draw: 97

“The draw was so good, the cigar practically smoked itself! Plenty of cool smoke that took no effort to get.” –Ron (shuckins)

Burn: 90

“The burn was very good, only required a minor correction here and there.” –Emmett (rhetorik)

Overall Strength: Medium
Overall Body/Complexity: Medium
Overall Experience: 85

“I didn’t get the feeling I was even smoking a hand made cigar at any point during this one. At times, I got inklings of flavor but they quickly disappeared leaving me with an impression of smoking cardboard. This was a smoking experience that I don’t care to remember any time soon.” –Milton (mjohnsoniii)

“In the beginning, the flavors seemed interesting and everything was going well with the cigar. The second third is where it made a wrong turn. The soft spots affected the burn, then affected the taste and the end result. I would try it again to see how it would end up. It seemed like a decent dog- walking cigar.” –Cindy (Ms_CindyLynn)

“This was a great experience, I can’t wait to find out what it was. Technically it performed great and the flavors were all very pronounced and balanced with some nice transitions between thirds. I would recommend this to just about any smoker.” –Emmett (rhetorik)

“A pleasant cigar suited for a mid-morning or after lunch smoke, just needed another gear or two, but I would smoke another.” –Ron (shuckins)

Smoking Time (in minutes): 72

Total Score: 89 (Good)
