H.Upmann Royal Robusto - LCDH 2011 release

This was a stick I bought from Sautters of Mayfair, really friendly cigar shop/merchants, on recommendation. it was as the title of this suggests just produced for sale by La Casa del Habanos stores (that's the extra band too).

It had a great dark but not too dark wrapper, lovely construction, perfect draw, a touch too wide in gauge for me but it is what it is so that unavoidable. The burn was good , initially rich strong tea with a touch of cream. It than got fuller at end of 1st third, up to medium or just above. It tasted young but very good too, tea like finish with grass too. Final third, quite punchy and more tobacco.

Needs a bit more time...89 now potential for 92+, well worth seeking out.
