Pappy Van Winkle Tradition – Robusto Grande

You never know what you’re going to get with cross promotion cigars. Let’s see what Pappy Van Winkle whiskey and Drew Estate have in mind.

 

Cedar barnyard and fresh raisins from fresh, construction looks good with a medium to firm pack and smooth wrapper.

This cigar has a strong start with many great flavours right off the bat. The first few draws are sugar sweet, you could think it was infused. Only five minutes in you find fresh leafy greens, cedar, white pepper and an ever present sweetness most noticeable for the finish.

As expected from Drew Estate, the burn was razor sharp producing great smoke output. Strength started at medium but quickly transitioned to full by the second half; full flavour throughout.

The last third became less complicated with dessert like flavours of peanuts and sweet sultanas remaining smooth, burning cool and slow.

Yet another winner from Drew Estate.
