 Dominican, PDR Cigars, PDR PDR El Trovador, Robusto  Today was my first time with this rustic looking PDR El Trovador in Robusto by PDR Cigars. I’ve been curious about this brand since I’ve only fallen in love with one of it’s topnotch blends in the Connecticut Valley Reserve Maduro.

Through an open and airy draw, I get dry earthy natural tobacco flavors, bits of cedar, and tea with a retrohale of cedar and a dash of white pepper.

At the second third… am I detecting some leather tobacco flavors or is that just wishful thinking? … I’m also picking up something with a floral note to it too. 

At the last third and this cigar is a hard one to keep lit. I’ve dry-boxed this for a couple of days, so I can’t figure out why… I have a few more, so we’ll see how they blaze down the road after some more TupperDor time.

Overall, kinda what I expected, but I’m always hoping for more… We’ll see what this brings next time.
