Just received my first box of these and smoked one right away. I have to admit I was disappointed when Trinidad ended production of the Robusto Extra and the Robusto T. These sticks did not disappoint!. Smooth draw and lots of smoke with a nice even burn are the Trinidad trademarks and this smoke live up to its lineage. Light earth leather flavors and then Voila! the vanilla taste kicks in about 1/3 of the way thru. An excellent smoke to pair with a Cognac or smooth Tequila. Highly recommended and I am looking forward to how these taste as the age.
