Carrillo Short Run Populares (robusto) (4 7/8x50)
Nice looking medium brown cigar. Appears to be very well made. Feels solid in the hand. First draws were heavy leather spice with black pepper and raw almond undertones. Notes of sweetness in the leather spice. Roasted almond finish and fairly long. Light notes of sweetness on the finish also. As the cigar burned into the first inch the sweetness was much more intense; more on par with a with a molasses sweetness. After an inch or so the cigar changed to a cinnamon spice with the same very pleasing sweetness. Nice change! Medium to full bodied. The black pepper stays in the background but it's always noticeable. I found this to be a very enjoyable cigar.

Avo Signature robusto (5x52)
The final third had notes of cinnamon, raw almonds, citrus, and vanilla with nice pepper. As cigar go this one had numerous changes and a very good flavor with almost flawless burn. Very good cigar. Although expensive it is a must try!
