"An average cigar"
Like most, I get samplers to try out arouse cigars. This one was a bit of a surprise. It smoked well after starting off a bit strong and overpowering. Once it settles it's good. I didn't rate it higher because of its price point. For the money, Oliva makes a finer cigar but that is jmo.

"Fantastic, Reasonably Priced Stick"
i got two of these in a sampler in Dec 2010. Bought a 5pack and the consistency is right on. Same draw, flavor and smoke. Great aroma and flavor. I agree though this is more of a medium to medium full bodied cigar. let them chill in your humi for a few weeks and get to your favorite humidity and enjoy!!!

Just finished this cigar about ten minutes ago. Even though this is a labeled as a full bodied cigar, it has a smooth, easy taste to it. I got the impression of a toasty, nutty flavor with some deeper flavors that were a bit more subtle like leather. The burn was slow and consistent, ant the ash held so well, you could use it for a jack stand! All in all, very good. I'd recommend this cigar to seasoned smokers as well as newbies! Haven't had one yet? Try it. You won't be disappointed!

"Just a great cigar"
Not sure why anyone would complain about this cigar, unless they just don't like a full body. Very peppery to start, but smoothed out quickly with some nice flavor changes throughout. One of the most interesting cigars I have smoked. Perfect draw, nice even burn and good 60 minutes out of it. Even stayed cool down to the last inch. Very impressed.

Strange to call it robusto It had a really nice peppery flavor but lighter somehow , without getting too hot halfway thru as often happens with this style, goes great with a good anejo tequila. Great golf cigar!

"One of my favorites"
Excellent burn, draw, and taste. Some aging will bring out even more highlights. This is one of my favorites. It is an excellent value.

Well constructed, great even burn, easy draw, and sweet on the palate with very little pepper. The 601 Red (Habano) Robusto has become my favorite!

"one of the all time worst ever"
Mr. Don Pepin,
Do your taste buds still work? Why do these cigars keep going out?; and burn uneven?; and taste like pavement?
Perhaps you need to smoke one yourself or should I say attempt to smoke one. Did you add gasoline to this batch of
tobacco,tastes awful.I have smoked many of the cigars when you blended and rolled for your clients and sought after your blends, since your name has gone on the label
the taste is unbearable and nonpleasing not only to me but others around me.I'm actually smoking one now right now as alast chance redeemer and honestly it has just gone out! Really man I dare you just try to smoke it I double dare you to light it toss you fire away, and just try to smoke it in its entirety. This cigar really now is the only cigar that makes my three dogs honestly now all three dogs start sneezing and leave the room! They actually smell like burning plastic and yes I removed the cello
I recently submitted a review that famous did not publish
for what ever reason if you guys don't put this one in I won't buy their cigars anymore..really can you tell I was bummed with this one YUK!

"Well made, great taste"
Just opened a 5 pack that I got via cigar monster. It started a bit harsh but turned into a great, smooth burning, full flavored stick. I bet they'll be even better after a week or so in the humidor.
