I went with a Robusto for this review. The truth is, Casa de Garcia is a rough cigar to gaze upon. It’s mottled and rough to the touch. It’s got veins and visible seams. But it’s not light like most budget cigars. There are no soft spots. The foot and shaft give off pleasant hay and aged tobacco aromas. Upon lighting, my Casa de Garcia Robusto opens with subtle wood, leather, and a little pepper at the back.
The pepper creeps up the retrohale and a little zing remains on the tip of my tongue. It’s worth mentioning that not all Casa de Garcia Nicaragua will have the same flavor profile. There will be variations in the pepper intensity among other differences. I think it's because they use leftover fillers from the premium smokes rolled in the same factory. More flavor notes include oak, espresso, raisin sweetness, and vintage leather. Even though there are no transitions, this cigar holds up in consistency, construction, and smoke output.
The burn line needs no touch ups whatsoever. However, it burns like a mixed filler smoke which translates to flaky ash so watch out. Amazingly, and probably its best selling point is the fact that all the way to the nub, this cigar never gets bitter. It maintains an aristocratic aged tobacco nuance that is wonderfully satisfying. I’ve had some Casa de Garcias that have been a straight up pepper bomb. It works if you’re a pepper person. If not you can just toss it and grab another.
If you’re a heavy smoker like yours truly, it makes sense to have a decent budget-friendly everyday smoke. A $5 cigar five or six times a day will leave a dent on your wallet. But a $2 or less cigar that hits the right spots works just as well except you’ll have $3 or $4 saved.
