Angelenos Tasting Notes
by Brent Butterworth
The refined character of the new Angelenos cigar comes as no surprise given that it comes from Keith K. Park, the same man who created the elegant Prometheus line of cigar accessories and critically acclaimed God of Fire cigar. What does come as a surprise is the Angelenos' flavor profile, which exudes all the finesse of the world's finest cigars yet tastes like no other blend.
Made in the Dominican Republic by Tabacalera A. Fuente y Cia, the Angelenos combines Dominican and Ecuadorian tobaccos into five sizes - Robusto, Double Robusto, Robusto Gordo 54, Toro and Gran Toro.
On first light, the Angelenos surprises the palate with flavors of gingerbread and eggnog. Its taste recalls the flavors of nutmeg, brown sugar, and cream, and the aroma is fragrant with subtle hints of cinnamon and ginger.
Unlike most other cigars, the Angelenos has an opening act and a second act. About halfway through, its flavor evolves noticeably. The sweet and spicy notes fade as the leathery, full-bodied taste of the Ecuador-grown wrapper starts to dominate. The Angelenos finishes with a well-rounded flavor that remains robust and smooth all the way to the end.
While casual smokers can easily appreciate the Angelenos' unique personality, it is the experienced smoker who will most enjoy these cigars. With its distinctive, full flavor, the Angelenos is always an interesting smoke-yet its blend is smooth enough that one could savor the Angelenos at any time of day or night.
Angelenos Robusto MSRP $9.95
50 x 5 1/4 inch, 19 mm x 133
25 cigars per box (MSRP $248.75)
The Robusto is a subtly more potent take on the original Angelenos blend. Much of the same sweet, creamy flavor is present, but the aroma is considerably more intense, practically dancing with floral notes. While the ultra-smooth Robusto is mellow enough for anyone to finish down to the last inch, its heavier taste hints at the leathery heft of the finest Cuban blends. It is truly a cigar appropriate for any occasion and any smoker.
Angelenos Double Robusto MSRP $10.95
52 x 5 3/4 inch, 20 mm x 145
25 cigars per box (MSRP $273.75)
If the Robusto takes the Angelenos blend up one notch, the Double Robusto takes it up two. The Double Robusto has a stimulating aroma that recalls the fresh smell of juniper berries. The taste is the heaviest in the Angelenos line, beginning with subtle notes of black pepper and the tang of poblano pepper. The peppery notes intensify about halfway through the cigar. The Double Robusto's distinctive flavor makes it the perfect accompaniment to mixed drinks-it could even hold its own with a great margarita.
Angelenos Robusto Gordo 54 MSRP $10.95
54 x 5 1/2 inch, 21 mm x 139
25 cigars per box (MSRP $273.75)
The flavors in the Angelenos Robusto Gordo are so many and varied that it may be impossible to describe them all. Like the other Angelenos cigars, the Robusto Gordo opens with the subtle, delicate sweetness of angel food cake. As it burns, new flavors emerge - a slight citrus tang, the softest hints of black pepper. About halfway through, the sweetness recedes and the cigar becomes more full-boldied, with a taste reminiscent of savory salsa. It's perfect for afternoons or evenings when you have time to sit down and enjoy one of the most complex, interesting cigars in the world.
