about aristocrat robusto
We were very excited to have had the opportunity to do a small one off project with the Balvenie. We were asked to make a blend that would be our vision of what would be the perfect cigar to pair with the Balvenie 21 year old Portwood scotch.After several attempts to create what we had in mind we finally came to the final blend. The original sticks were infused with the 21 year old Portwood and were every bit as good as we hoped. We were so happy with them on their own that we decided to continue them without the infusion.
A velvety maduro wrapper with rich oils gives a hint of earthy nut and leather. The opening burn begins with deep toasty flavors of Brazil nut or walnut. There is a chewy kind of sweetness of raisin or date. As the burn progresses there is a hint of dry teak wood. This cigar offers large volume of thick aromatic smoke that is pleasing on the palate. Pairing this with the Balvenie 21 year Portwood is the ultimate in refinement and enjoyment.
