Principle Cigars Accomplice Corojo Robusto Review

I have said for some time that the Accomplice line from Principle Cigars is one of my favorite bang-for-your-buck lines. Each of the blends in the lineup are unique and exciting. I am not considering the Decienne by the way, as it is a limited release anniversary blend - though it is also a unique and great blend. This morning I lit up a Corojo Robusto for review.

Wrapper: Dominican Corojo

This cigar has a mottled, medium-dark brown wrapper. It’s firmly packed, but not too dense. It smells of sweet tobacco and spice. The cold draw has some creamy baking spices. First light immediately brings about full flavored, medium-full bodied smoke. It’s earthy with some tannic wood and a bit of brown sugar. About a half inch in the tannins have come down, but it’s still earthy and woody with a bit of dark sweetness and oil. The retrohale is easy going and adds a tanginess. Moving into the second third the profile is much the same. The only difference being that a touch of pepper has joined in. Reaching halfway the performance has been flawless. The profile is still rolling along. The retrohale has now added a little mustiness, dark fruit, and spices in place of the tang. Entering the final third black pepper is reappearing on the draw and lingering through the finish. Coming to an end at a little over an hour the only change in profile was the addition of some citrus on the draw and floral notes on the retrohale. The performance was perfect for the duration of the smoking experience.

Overall Experience

Overall this is a very unique blend. Though my flavor notes may have been straightforward, this is actually a hard cigar to pin down the flavor notes. I did my best to provide a description, but honestly don’t know that I nailed it. The flavors all stand out, but also meld together nicely to create a cornucopia of sweet and savory-ness. It is also worth noting that the cigar is extremely full flavored, but without overpowering the palate. I would definitely recommend checking this cigar out if you want a unique experience and like a lot of sweet and savory flavors. Though, do beware if you are not a fan of wood and/or tannins, as those notes are present through much of the cigar.
