Well, I finally did it. After a few weeks of debating whether to splash out for a couple of these, I took the plunge. Today turned up three La Flor de Cano Short Robusto’s. Part of the 2010 Regional Edition Releases for the United Kingdom, the Short Robusto is a pint sized smoke.
Measuring in at 4 inches by 50 ring gauge, the La Flor de Cano Short Robusto looks to be a thirty to forty minute smoke, perfect if you want to knock back an Ale or two outside your local pub. I’m looking forward to finally video reviewing this Cigar. The initial impressions amongst the Cigar community is that they are a cracking smoke. However, I’ve heard from a few people that these are light in body, while others have mentioned that the Cigar leans towards being medium bodied. A perfect excuse to find out myself methinks!
Looking forward toward the review, I’m trying to think what would be the best drink pairing to compliment the Short Robusto? I’ve got a feeling a light, golden Ale might be the best bet. I’m hedging my bets, and sticking my neck out that this is going to be light in body, so the drink in question in itself will have to be delicate.
Just writing about this Cigar is starting to make me drool...
