Cigar Review | MBombay Corojo Oscuro Robusto

It’s Stog o’Clock, and this time, I try out the MBombay Corojo Oscuro in the Robusto size. This 4.5×50 cigar features an Ecuadorian wrapper on top of an Ecuadorian binder and fillers from Ecuador, Peru, and the Dominican Republic. As with most MBombay cigars, it displays a giant ornate band. It retails for around $7.

The wrapper produces a damp leather aroma while I smell rich dried cherries out of the foot. On the cold draw, I find light cherry flavor. Once lit, cedar comes through with cinnamon and grassy hay. Through the nose, I get more cinnamon and graham cracker. The finish hits me with even more cinnamon and rich earth.

Fifteen minutes in, the first third closes out. On the draw, I pick up toast with cinnamon and citrus. Through the nose, buttery toast blends with cedar. The finish offers cashew with gingerbread and coffee. Both strength and body settle in at a steady medium.

The second third gets me to thirty-five minutes. There is no change to the draw, and I have no problem with that. On the retro-hale, black pepper replaces toast to pair with cedar. The finish sees more black pepper with charred cashew and coffee. Strength and body jump slightly to medium-to-full.

Fifty-five minutes in, the final third comes to an end. More cinnamon hits my tongue on the draw with coffee and earth. The flavors through the nose remain the same. I find more black pepper on the finish alongside smoky earth and leather. Strength and body finish out at medium-to-full.

The MBombay Corojo Oscuro Robusto packs quite a lot of flavor into such a small cigar. It has a great amount of complexity with very enjoyable flavors that work well together. Construction is perfect. I really enjoyed this one and highly recommend it.

Smoke on!
