Dante Canto III Robusto Cigar Review “Devilishly Delicious Smoke”

 Dante-Logo1

Hidden amidst the dangerous shadows of the Underworld, buried deep in its smokiest corner, lay a cigar so tempting it aroused the Wicked One’s envy: Dante. After years of perilous searching, Dante has managed to retrieve this devilishly delicious smoke and now introduce it to you. A reimagination of its turn-of-the-century namesake, Dante balances strength, spice, and sweetness with a diabolical twist. Hand made by master rollers in Miami using the finest Aganorsa leaf, Dante reflects the pinnacle of premium boutique cigars.

This cigar has a toothy brown wrapper with sweet hay-like notes on the pre-light draw. The Dante is a very good looking cigar with a great smell.  There seems to be an even more earthiness radiate from the body of the cigar.  I get a lot of rich aroma in my nostrils from the wrapper.  The cold draw was perfect it was nice and smooth.

The first few puffs into smoking the Dante were exceptional. There was a very clean burn the minute it was lit.  It started by holding a long ash very well at the beginning.  The draw stayed very easy and kept getting better.  Mid way into the body I notice that half of the cigar was burning.  I continued and it corrected itself with a flame touchup.  Nice thick and dense smoke filled the air with a great aroma.  There was some creaminess detected that really mellowed out the characters in the Dante.

Upon lighting the foot the burn did not seem that it would be a problem. With that being said mid body towards the cap the off burn returned.  Still I was able to enjoy full flavored characters with a nice slow burn.   More creamy texture smoke continued to come through the mouth with a nice amount of spice in the nose.  Really nice the second half of the Dante it produced another long ash and it held on until the very end.

Final Thoughts:

The cigar offered a lot of flavor with forward character and a medium body. It maintained consistent sweet notes and aroma with spice and a long finish.  The aroma also intensified and maintained a rich luring profile.  Very easy on the palate packed with flavor.  Very well made and a joy to smoke.
