The first cigar I chose to rate was the Jose Marti Robusto Extra (6.5"x52)
Cigar Magazine requested the ratings be between 50 and 100 in 4 categories; Appearance, Taste, Construction, and Strength, with a space for comments if necessary.
The cigar had some notes of pepper, some spice beginning at the halfway point of the cigar, and some sweetness. The burn was off, but that may be due to the cigars just arriving. Most cigar shippers have their cigars over humidified for shipping. The cigar was not bad at all.
My Score: 87
