Gran Habano La Conquista Gran Robusto

Gran Habano La Conquista Gran Robusto

Gran Habano La Conquista Gran Robusto 1600 900 Michel Arlia

The La Conquista line, from Gran Habano, was originally released back in 2016. It is made up of three sizes. The package is ornate as are the bands, that depict Christopher Columbus’s arrival to the Americas. Each cigar is also wrapped in a cedar sleeve, with a ribbon on the end of the foot.

Gran Habano La Conquistag Gran Toro

Gran Habano La Conquista Gran Robusto: the cold draw reveals notes of grass and spices, with some sweetness also perceptible. Once lit, the cigar opens with cinnamon and wood.

Further into the first third, the cinnamon and wood flavors are flanked by a toasted bread note. Coffee appears in the background. Strength is medium (3/5).

Wood, toasted bread and cinnamon are the main flavors in the second third. An interesting change of flavors is going on in the background, that has become sweeter, thanks to the appearance of nuts, vanilla and ripe fruits. Strength remains constant.

The last third is a long continuation of the previous third. Strength increases slightly towards the end, to a medium – full level (4/5)

Overall, the Gran Habano La Conquista Gran Robusto presents an interesting and balanced flavor profile (especially in the second third), but it lacks in complexity in certain parts (mostly in the last third). Construction-wise, the cigar was flawless.

Rating: 89
