For those that aren't fans of traditional Connecticut's, try this, and for those that like medium and above strength cigars, also try it. I'll definitely be smoking more of these and look forward to reviewing the Robusto.
The upside is, the cigar is very approachable, not being dominant in strength, so especially newer cigar smokers will be able to get through 1.5 hours or so without feeling the need to reach for something to eat.
The cigar started with a very smooth profile and as it went along, lost the cream which left a primarily oak and baking spice note. Smooth is a great descriptor for this cigar. Maybe the best Archetype I've had thus far.
The cigar offers a full-flavored blend of specially-aged long-fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua embraced by a Mexican San Andrés Negro binder, and finished in a flawless, dark-natural Habano wrapper grown in Ecuador.
I found the Crna Nok in toro to be overall a consistently good, creamed dark chocolate forward cigar with a good surrounding cast of earthiness. Just for the creamed dark chocolate, I will be returning to this cigar.
This is a decent offering from Emilio and I would actually be curious to see what it would do with a year of age on it as I think the profile might meld together a little better. I would say this is worth a try if you come across it to see if it fits your profile.
Usually, when a cigar is attached to a celebrity or athlete, the first thing people think about is that it's a gimmick. That isn't the case with this cigar as it carries a nice profile and smoking experience. I could definitely see myself sitting down with this cigar to enjoy an evening baseball game during the summer.
