Appearance of Mayans M.C. Robusto
The Mayans M.C. Robusto cigar uses a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper with a dirty-looking colored wrapper. I noticed some pronounced black spots on the cigar, which made it look dirty.
There are also visible veins and minimal seams. It is firm to the touch, but despite it, there are still some soft spots. As for the cigar band, it has a single band that is too plain in color for me.
This cigar band uses a dull color palette consisting of white, gray, and black. The middle of the band features a dragon’s face, but the longer you stare at it, it also looks like an ugly man’s face. The word “Mayans” was written on top of it in uppercase and white font.
Given how dirty-looking the cigar’s wrapper is, the band made it look worse. The band’s black, white, and gray color scheme makes it stand out against the dirtier background of the wrapper. This contrast makes the cigar look even dirtier than it actually is. They should have used something that has a pop of color. Also, given that the cigar’s wrapper color is dark, it’s not the best idea to put a band that also uses dark color.
Upon lighting the Mayans M.C. Robusto cigar, the flavors notes I got are coffee, chocolate, and vanilla, which are also present in the retro-hale. The flavors are a mouthful; they’re very rich.
For my first third of smoking the Mayans M.C. Robusto cigar, the dominant flavor is coffee, joined by the newly emerging flavor, leather, with a hint of spice. The chocolate and vanilla flavor is at the back. For the smoke output, it didn’t release much, but the burn is good. The draw is tight, but the flavors are good.
After my second third of smoking the Mayans M.C. Robusto cigar, the dominant flavor was still the coffee, but it got very strong this time. It’s now dark coffee, and the leather note mellows down a bit because of this. The chocolate also mellows down, but the vanilla slowly joins the coffee to balance it out. There’s also a ness note to it, which I found a little bit too much, considering there’s already a present vanilla flavor. The spice is still there but also became present on the retro-hale. The only downside is that the ash of this one immediately fell off. It’s still a good cigar for me because of its flavor.
For my final third of smoking the Mayans M.C. Robusto cigar, I noticed that the dominant flavor of coffee’s accompanied flavors is always different. During the first third, it was leather, then on the second third, it was vanilla, but this time, it’s the chocolate flavor. So the accompanying tastes vary from each third which I find interesting. The spice on the retro-hale was replaced by vanilla, which made the spice mellow down a little bit. The smoke output is not excellent for cigar construction until this part. It produces minimal smoke, which I didn’t find bothering me. The draw loosens up at this point. For this cigar’s burn, it burns good, not even, but it’s still much okay than having to experience one part being canoe down.
Overall, the Mayans M.C. Robusto cigar is an excellent cigar for me. Despite not liking its appearance, this one impresses me. I love how the accompanying flavors of the dominant flavor, which is coffee, change every third of smoking the cigar. I also like the flavor profile of this one since it’s a combination of light and dark flavors.
For the construction of this one, while it is not given its best smoke output, I would still consider it reasonable since the draw loosened up a little bit from being a bit tight during the first third. In addition, even if it didn’t burn evenly, it still did well.
All in all, the Mayans M.C. Robusto cigar is something I would definitely smoke in the future. While some may say it has a standard flavor profile, what makes it interesting is the flavor transition. This could be something I would smoke every day if I would like it to be.
Despite being medium in strength, the flavor profile of this one is great for beginners. I would recommend this cigar to any cigar aficionado out there, and if you’re planning to smoke a Mayan cigar, this is one of their best works.
