Cohiba - Red Dot - Robusto

Strength: Mild - medium
Origins: Dominican Republic
Wrapper: Cameroon
Shape: Straight
Length: 5"
Ring size: 49
Approx. cost: $3.50
Bdawg says: Cohiba "red dot" cigars are made in the Dominican Republic by the General Cigar Company. The cigars have a unique band with a couple of obvious red dots, one inside the black letter 'O' in the name Cohiba, and another inside a black circle on the side of the band. This unique band with red dots helps distinguish the cigars from their Cuban counterparts, which are not legal the United States.

The wrapper is light brown and slightly veiny.  The draw is just right.  A light, smooth, cedary flavor.  Slow and even burn.

I enjoyed this cigar with a Short's Soft Parade.

Bdawg says:  Fermented with blueberries, strawberries, raspberries,
and blackberries. Nice balance. Not too sweet. Love it!
