Antano 1970 Magnum
6 x 60 - Dark Natural - Single
Ready to give up your Fuente OpusX cigars? Don't answer until you've tried this awesome, full-bodied series from Joya De Nicaragua cigars that Cigar Insider scored 91. The Antano (Spanish for 'yesteryear'), is a smooth-smoking reincarnation of Joya's original full-flavored blend of the 1970s. Antano 1970 Magnum cigars are perfectly-balanced with bold Nicaraguan Ligero leaves draped in thick, juicy, extra-dark Nicaraguan wrappers. Tasting is believing; and don't forget to fasten your seatbelt.
The Big Bull is my favorite cigar. I do not always have the time for one so I tried 3 other cigars from the Antano choics. The Magnum was the winner over the other two choices. What I liked the most was the consistency of taste. Smooth through the entire cigar. Improvement for this cigar is in the burn and appearance. They are good but could be better. The taste is my favorite aspect of this cigar. It is just like the big bull which was what I wanted. Nice to see Nicaragua producing a very good smoke.
I have smoked 2 boxes now,The construction is not the best..If they did'nt split,Or burst,Then this would be a fantastic stick!As far as the draw,Exel.The tasted,Excel.Construc.3-5-Out of 10.
Maybe it's because i had this stick on an empty stomach but man....did she give me a head buxx! I'm a seasoned smoker and i found these too full bodied to acompany the flavour. Construction was great. The draw was lack luster and the flavor of the cigar changed constantly. I would get 2 or 3 draws were it wuld start to open up and than...wham, it would go back to full bodies pine. I wont be buying anymore.
I received this Antano in one of my bundles. It was in my humidor for a couple of weeks. Finally, last night I tried it: It was like smoking a piece of wood, it was so tightly wrapped I could hardly draw any smoke through it and the taste was like a cheap cigar. I know if it had been a clean smoke, it may have tasted better. In the meantime, I will not waste my money!
