This is a tasty little cigar that is perfect for a nice summer night out with your friends. It is relatively inexpensive and is surprisingly very tasty leading to a 90 rating. It has the look of a finer cigar with its triple capped head and slightly rough wrapper that has a color scheme of light brown splotches of a darker brown that fade in and out. It is slightly oily with a beautiful sheen all along the body of the cigar. It has a very colorful appealing band that shows a coat of arms in the center, a nature like detail along the rest of the band, a white base and green secondary and red lettering and decals. It is a very beautiful and appealing cigar through and through.

The first third was appealing and very tasty from the moment you light up. It has a very nice cedar taste with a soothing light caramel sweetness along with a slight hint of pink pepper to give it a nice contradicting bitterness that makes the cigars taste all that much more fulfilling. As you enter the second third of the cigar the cedar and caramel flavors that were noticed and loved in the first third now become even more pronounced and delicious. Upon a retro-hale a sharp taste of cedar along with lovely bitter sweetness of the caramel and a slight spice of pepper is present. As you reach the last third much of the same great flavors that have been consistent throughout the whole cigar are here. As the cigar ended a nice cedar and caramel sweetness was presented on the draw along with a lovely contradicting spiciness from the pepper. The Gran Habano Corojo Vintage 2002 Robusto is a very tasty treat through and through.

This medium-full bodied cigar was a wonderful and enjoyable smoke.  It had a magnificent finish keeping all the flavors till the end.  It had an average draw that was smooth and required little effort. The Gran Habano Vintage 2002 Robusto had a nice firm, light grey ash with spots of darker grey that faded in and out.  It had a very good and even burn.  All in all this is a very tasty cigar that is even more enjoyable with the smooth draw and great burn. The Gran Habano Corojo Vintage 2002 Robusto is perfect for those summer nights with friends out by a bonfire.
