I got this cigar in a sampler. The cigar has a strange spicy smell. I thought I was not going to like it. However, I smoked the cigar until my fingers burned. Great taste, easy draw, and great burn. Will buy again.

This is one strange cigar in that it looks, feels, and behaves almost perfectly. As if it were a creation of an artificial amalgamation of tobacco-like particles. Notice that the write up does not say 100% tobacco. Is it possible?
And the taste is aseptic to be kind. It taste like sucking on a eucalyptus stick. What kind of "tobacco" needs so much camouflage?
These were sent to me as samples from JR Cigars. No thanks!

Construction is perfect, razor sharp burn, what i didnt like about the cigar is the too much sweet candy like taste, but after the 1/2 way point, it was aromatic, with a congac taste %26 smell, love that part of this cigar..

I've made it through some cheap cigars that weren't the best tasting, but I was desperate for a smoke. I saw this in a nearby shop's humidor and figured I'd give it shot. I'm writing this still trying to get the taste out of my mouth. Probably the worst cigar I've tasted outside of stuff you buy in a 7-Eleven. No, it's worse. I can get through one of those. This? One puff was yuk, the second was that it must be a mistake and there wasn't a third. I tossed it into the bushes by the side of my deck. It was like smoking cotton candy. It seemed to burn nice for the few moments I had it lit. It was well constructed, but simply awful.

"Outstanding Cigar. Sweet and Aromatic."
The best cigar I have ever smoked. The wrapper is sweet and the aroma has a hint of incense. The roll is tight and burn even. A great experience.

"A Strange Experience"
Some of the best cigars I've tried were from Drew Estate, so I was open to the infamous Acid cigar. I've seen that it has a loyal following, and just as many lovers as haters. I'm no stranger to flavored cigars either, so I gave it a try.
A well constructed cigar, good draw and even burn. It's evident that a lot of inspiration and care went into the crafting of these, for this line is truly unique.
However, on first sliding it out of the cello and taking a whiff, I knew already I was in for a strange trip. I simply couldn't fathom it. What mad scientist conceived of this peculiar formula?
I lit it, and smoked it, and tried my best to surrender to it without judgement. But how, I wondered, did someone come up with this flavor? I imagined a guy's wife dumped some holiday potpourri into his humidor, and the transgression wasn't discovered for months. But the brave fellow said, I paid for these, I'm gonna smoke 'em and like 'em. And over time the taste grew on him until he started wanting more. So he proposed his idea to Drew, and they gambled on this crazy idea, and they were a hit.
The usual cigar may be said to be a very Apollonian thing, but the Acid is pure Dionysian. It's like the entire population of Rio decided to have a Carnival in your mouth. Overwhelming! Too much noise and color. I toughed it out, but only succeeded in getting two thirds finished and had to put it down. Enough! Nevermore!

I purchased the Acid sampler pack and have to say its been one disappointment after another. The Kuba is no exception, horrible is an understatement!

Had a friend turn me on to these and I loved them. Gave a few to some buddies since and everyone feels the same about this smoke! Just bought more. Enjoy...

"YUCK - Is this even tobacco?"
I haven't been smoking cigars long just 18 months or so. Thought I'd give these a try. I can get real ugly here but two or three puffs and I put it down. Strangest flavor ever. I needed to brush my teeth - which I never do after smoking. Giving the other 4 away.
