  • Filler: Ecuador, Peru, & Dominican Republic

The MBombay Corojo Oscuro is adorned with the classic MBombay outer sleeve that, when removed, reveals a beautifully crafted cigar, with a high sheen, dark brown Corojo Oscuro wrapper. It has minimal veins and a dark, rich, center core. The band is the standard MBombay band, endearing it to be an MBombay product.

Overall, the MBombay Corojo Oscuro Robusto was an amazing cigar, rich in flavor, throughout a longer than expected burn. The burn was pristine, offering no troubles through the journey. I would expect nothing less from Mel Shah and MBombay. With all  the sweetness,  cream, and cocoa notes in this cigar,  I would suggest pairing it with an aged rum or Cuban coffee.

  • Enjoyed this cigar today with a dark roast Columbian coffe. All of the aforementioned notes are spot on. I usually prefer Nicaraguan however, this cigar is one I will certainly be enjoying in the future. Well done.
