Casa Turrent 1880 Oscuro Double Robusto

Casa Turrent 1880 Oscuro Double Robusto

Casa Turrent 1880 Oscuro Double Robusto 1600 900 Michel Arlia

The Casa Turrent 1880 line was first introduced in 2017 and celebrated the actual year when the Turrent family began growing tobacco. In 2020, the line was expanded by four different blends called Claro, Colorado (coming in second place in our 2020 Awards), Maduro, and Oscuro. Each blend came in one single Double Robusto size. New sizes were announced at this year’s PCA trade show.

The Oscuro is a Mexican Puro entirely made out of Habano Criollo tobacco cultivated by the Turrent family in the San Andres Valley.

Casa Turrent 1880 Oscuro

Surprisingly enough, the wrapper is not as dark as the name would suggest. It is more a Colorado Maduro color than an Oscuro. It is smooth to the touch, and the filling is uniform.

  • Country of Origin: Mexico
  • Size: 55 x 165 mm (6.5″)
  • Wrapper: Mexico
  • Binder: Mexico

Casa Turrent 1880 Oscuro

Casa Turrent 1880 Oscuro Double Robusto: the cold draw brings notes of wood, cocoa, and spices to the palate. Once lit, it opens with notes of wood and ripe fruits.

Casa Turrent 1880 Oscuro

The first third continues with wood upfront, followed by mineral notes. The smoke is quite sapid and dry. Strength is already medium-full (4/5).

In the second third, a nutty note appears next to the wood. Coffee and black pepper are present in the retrohale. The smoke is not as dry as in the first third, and the strength is now full (5/5).

The last third is a continuation of the previous third, with the only difference being that the black pepper turns to cinnamon spice. Strength is still full (5/5).

Overall, the Casa Turrent 1880 Oscuro Double Robusto profile is quite interesting, with a mix of flavors that complement each other well. The only drawbacks of this being a great cigar are the strength, which sometimes overpowers the flavor profile, and the dryness of the smoke, making it unbalanced in some parts.
