Casa Miranda Chapter One Robusto Review
By Mr. Penny

This Casa Miranda exclusive was blended by Titan de Bronze’s master blender Willy Herrera and is rolled exclusively by level 9 rollers. This cigar features an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper with binder and fillers from Nicaragua.   

Looking at the cigar my eyes are instantly attracted to the rich mocha brown wrapper which has a couple of thin veins coursing through it. The cigar has a decent weight in the hand and lacks any hard or soft spots. The wrapper smells distinctly of warm bakers cocoa and is very smooth and velvety to the touch. After clipping the well applied triple cap I take the pre-light draw which is very open and has nice mild baking spice notes with some black pepper on the tongue.

The cigar lights very well, the first few puffs have a nice spice but that dies down quickly into very smooth earthy flavors with sweet cocoa notes. The smoke starts off around the lower end of medium bodied. One of the best qualities of this cigar is its aroma, it’s a very sweet chocolaty aroma with some cinnamon mixed in. Absolutely great.

The first third consisted mostly of those earthy flavors with cocoa as previously mentioned. Occasionally a nice note of toast or wood would appear intertwined with vanilla. The smoke volume is great, this is a “one sip puff” type of cigars. The burn was okay all though a touch up was needed here and there. The finish is long and sweet with a dry tingling in the cheeks.

The second third was very much a replica of the first on taste with a bit of a build in body and mouth feel. The ash held about an inch and a half and fell coming into the second third. The only real difference in the second third was the finish, which was a very mouth watering caramel flavor.

The end of the cigar was a bit dryer than the rest but the flavors still held, the burn however got a bit wavy, needing touch ups here and there but this is understandable considering these cigars only came in recently and probably need to rest a bit more.

Overall this was a dessert of a cigar, sweet chocolate and earth with nice dry woodnotes coupled with an awesome draw make this medium bodied cigar a real treat. Miami Cigar has a tasty and flavor-packed cigar that medium body cigar smokers will very much enjoy.
