Uncharted Robusto by A. J. Fernandez (5 x 52)

Video review HERE.

Introducing Uncharted cigars, a new all-maduro blend made in the famous A J Fernandez factory in Nicaragua. A thick and spicy San AndrĂ©s binder and a unique combination of 75% Nicaraguan and 25% Jamastran filler tobaccos sit inside a rare dark-brown Ligero Habano Ecuador wrapper. 

Available in these sizes:
Robusto 5 x 52 (REVIEWED TODAY)
Toro 6 x 52
Belicoso 6 x 52
Gordo 6 x 60

These are available at J. R. Cigars.

Here is a shot of the foot.

The test draw after cutting the cap was effortless. The initial flavors were espresso, boysenberry, white chocolate, and black pepper at 8.5 to 9. When you retro hale the black pepper is over the top! There are massive amounts of espresso and black pepper at light up.

At one inch in the espresso and black pepper are starting to tone down a bit. The white chocolate notes are now tasting like a buttery caramel. The boysenberry notes are still there, however. The finish is a combination of caramel and cream with some nice lingering black pepper. The cigar is medium to full bodied right out of the gate.

Close to the midpoint and at the band the boysenberry notes have changed over to brown sugar. It is combining with the caramel. The espresso is now a straight black coffee. The black pepper has really toned down also. The finish is about the same and the cigar is still medium to full bodied. The big story at this point is the decrease in espresso and black pepper. It's more along the lines of an average amount now. 

With about 2 inches remaining the caramel and brown sugar are somewhat subdued. Even though the black coffee and black pepper are reduced they are still the lead flavor. There are now hints of cedar. The cigar remains medium to full bodied and the finish is unchanged.

At the end the black coffee/espresso and black pepper made a resurgence. The caramel notes are hardly detectable. There are sweet cedar and a little brown sugar. The cigar is very close to full bodied at this point. This cigar made several changes throughout. This is a very dark noted cigar. I wish the cigar held that buttery caramel throughout. Overall a good cigar, however.

Score: 90
