Today I have for you the Xen from Nish Patel in the robusto (5×50) size.
I am going to let the video do the talking this week because I just deleted my whole write up and with doctor appointment times coming up fast I do not have the time to retype everything right now.
Basically this cigar is a surprise if you think all connecticut shade are mild to medium sticks. I even would say this stick hit the full range for me towards the end.
A nice combination of wood, sweet spice, coffee and even a bit of hay rounded out this stick.
Would I buy it again? Yes. Even with more strength the cigar really is a nice smoke. I would like to try the toro size but the local shop only had the short robusto and robusto.
I am also not a fan of the box press on cigars but it wasn’t too awkward to hold and smoke for me so it did not take away from the experience.
