At the 2013 IPCPR Trade Show, Elogio Cigars launched its new Elogio Robusto Especial Limitada. Thi cigar is based on the Elogio Limitada Salomon blend. The profile of the Robusto Limitada is described as stronger than the Salomon Limitada. The Robusto cigar has a pig-tail cap and a covered foot. 300 boxes of ten were produced.

The Elogio Limitada Salomon has been a long-time Stogie Geeks favorite, but this was my first experience I had with the Robusto version. This one does not disappoint. It delivers notes of cocoa powder, red pepper, a nice natural tobacco sweetness, and nut. I found the end of this cigar to have a spicy kick. I also found this to be a one the fuller and stronger Elogio releases. The body is full-bodied from start to finish. Meanwhile the strength starts out medium to full and goes into full strength range by the second half.

Overall this is one of the best releases I’ve had by Elogio. It’s definitely a box worthy cigar. Get it if you can find it.
