Karel Martinez conceived the Enki brand with one goal in mind; perfection. Enki cigars strives to use the best quality of fillers, binders, and wrappers from Nicaragua, and the result of near perfection shows in the fantastic experience provided by lighting up an Enki cigar.
We have had the pleasure to sit down with Karel and smoke a few of his cigars. One of the cigars we have had the pleasure of smoking is the Enki Connecticut Hand-Rolled Robusto.
The Enki Connecticut Fresh Hand-Rolled Rubusto Review
Strength: Mild to Medium
Smoke Time: 45-60 minutes
The cigar is an Enki Connecticut Fresh Hand Rolled Robusto. It appears slightly moist; not dry, but not oily. The wrapper feels smooth with few veins from it. It doesn’t feel very oily, but slightly moist. It smells of rich tobacco and cocoa. The pre-light draw tastes of light tobacco and cream.
Toasting and lighting the foot was well and easy with tastes of hay and hints of cream. The draw is a little firm. It kept this profile for the first third of the smoke.
Going into the second third, I got more of the cream with hints of cocoa, but the hay flavor lingered
in the background. The draw is still pretty firm. The ash finally met its demise around the halfway point of the stick.
By the time I reached the final third the hay flavor had subsided to bring a creamy cocoa flavor. The draw remains firm throughout the rest of the stick.
This was a unique taste profile for this cigar. It was a very enjoyable stick except for the draw. I definitely would recommend trying one or two and see what you think. Leave a comment and let me know. Till next time, my friends.
