Cohiba robusto ESL MAY-18

Recommended Posts

Hello all! I would like to get anyone's opinion on this. I purchased a cab of cohiba robustos back in March of 20, from an online vendor in europe. They spent 3 weeks in the mail before I got them but we're vacuum sealed very well so I was not concerned about anything drying out. I am not a new smoker, to me everything looks authentic from black light testing to the cab itself (except the barcode was removed I am assuming gray market), and the construction of the cigars, look great, except everyone has had a tight draw. I have smoked about five already since April and they all taste extremely bland and full of tannins, I have smoked many cohiba robustos in the past, and never had this problem. I store them at RH of 65, 65f I have even dry boxed several for a day or two for smoking. Should I worry about them being very well made fakes or are they stuck in one of the maturations of aging? I will attach some pictures.94fcc594b89b4273302aba2c1cc8aaac.jpg857d0dadd26ffa02da2bcb8ed5fe9072.jpg15f6814adf6eae89c797523ccdd19b0d.jpg7d5b7d043917a6085f87d53238e17822.jpg16710c0779b125a2da0b01fadf9e8c14.jpg0dc4cb8397093a8ce5ff114113f24541.jpgf778fa97f7fd8e1a69d2277b2068d1cc.jpg

They look legit to me--I would hide them somewhere where you will forget about them--and then have a great surprise when you find them a few years from now.

Thanks for your reply, that's the way I was leaning but I have never smoked a cigar that was in the aging process like these ones where the taste is diminished so much. I will have to make these a time capsule project.

Look legit, but from “grey market”

Right, definitely will make me think twice about buying from a grey market vendor when it comes to more expensive brands. Received my first order from FOH recently and I was very very very pleased with it.
