La Barba Red in Robusto (Rothschild) by La Barba Cigars / Caldwell Cigars

Caldwell Cigars, Honduran, Honduran Corojo, La Barba Cigars, La Barba Red, Robusto, Rothschild Lo and behold… I had never smoked this La Barba Red Robusto (Rothschild) by La Barba Cigars (Caldwell Cigars) before today… I don’t know how I missed it… oh well!

This was quite a different cigar than what I expect from its Dominican Corojo wrapper, the La Barba Red intrigued my palate from beginning to the Nub with interesting tobacco flavors of rich musty leather and dark coffee with a peppery retrohale. And, there’s a dry floral note on the aftertaste that I can’t put my finger on right now, so I might have to purchase a few more of these to study.

Overall, I really enjoyed this La Barba Red. It didn’t “Wow” me, but I’m on the lookout to purchase a few more to enjoy.
