I picked up a Toro and robusto set of Orisha cigars from a friend. I never heard of this cigar before and all he could tell me was that the tobacco was from Nicaragua. The aroma and construction looked very good when I picked them up and after a week or so in my humidor smoked both of them. I really liked the larger size ring gauge on the robusto, it had a nice full feel to it and produced lots of grey smoke. The construction was good quality and I had no issues at all with the wrapper.

I did get some nutty and leathery flavors out of it and enjoyed the smoke. However, this is a low end smoke and you can notice it since you don't get the complex rich flavors of other premium cigars. Having said that I would give it a 7 and would recommend keeping some around to have with breakfast/coffee or just a quick smoke.
