Avanti Anisette (5)
This cigars is well constructed with a great taste. The appearance is amazing and for the price not bad. These cigars are not the easy to find.

Although there is an inconsistency with flavor and construction it's an overall great cigar

"Great relaxing, smooth smoke"
I was recently introduced to this cigar and I love love love it. I keep buying the 5 packs. I enjoy the smell, the flavor, and the draw. The smoke lasts a nice while, enough time to enjoy a quiet self moment. Very smooth, gentle, enjoyable cigar, especially if you like anisette, which I do.

Tried these in singles, got 4 of them and they were good so I ordered a box. Got the box and what a big disappointment. Wrapped so tight you cant get a draw on them. And half had holes in them. What a waist of $50.

"Nice taste and texture"
I never was a cigar smoker before I tried these Kentucky Cheroots. I still don't smoke a cigar often..but when I do it's these! Every so often I feel the need for a fine cigar and these fit the bill. The first time I smoked one I wasn't too sure about it (sense I wasn't any kind of a smoker) but another and then the next one....Yep, I really like 'em! I'm a cowboy T.V. and movie lover too, so I can't help but love the Clint Eastwood aspect to these thin rolled well tasting cigars.

Avanti Anisette (5)
I've been tugging on these things for years, from time to time. Love them, but I figured out the very best thing to do is age them several years in proper humidor. I used to own a smoke shop and had a big stash of these (among other things) when I shut down. 7 years later, these things draw and taste AWESOME. Of course, it's no fine Cuban, but there's nothing like a well age cheroot!

"The first cigar I've ever put out prematurely"
Don't get me wrong, the Anisette posses great (and powerful) anise flavor, which combined with a beautifully rustic appearance, creamy white smoke on an easy draw and peachy-tan/black ash makes this a great smoke for licorice lovers. However, the anise flavor is so strong it overpowers any hint of bourbon (which I did not even notice) or tobacco flavor; it is also such a sweet cigar that I had to put mine out early in fear of the creeping diabetes. All jokes aside, it is a surprisingly slow cigar (what I though would be a 15 min. smoke could have lasted over half an hour had I let it) and if you are a big fan of anise/black licorice than this may be an excellent smoke for you.

"Hickory Smoke and Sweet Tobacco"
I have smoked Avanti dry-cured cigars for 5 or more years now. You can't compare these old fashioned dry-roasted cigars with anything else that comes to mind when you think "cigar". you could describe it as a unique combination of sweet tobacco with an outdoorsy scent reminiscent of hickory smoke. While all Avanti cigars are supposed to taste similar, I find subtle differences in them. The Kentucky Cheroot seems to be the sweetest of them all. I think the construction leaves out the binder, but I can't be sure.

"I enjoy them immensely!"
I needed a workingmans cigar. Something sturdy, did not burn up immediately, went out when not drawn upon and tasted good. As far as the draw complaints I cut them in half. It took me a year to find these to replace the Branduras (Bahia) that I could no longer find.

Packed so tight they're nearly impossible to draw. Great if you're trying to cut back on smoking or quit altogether.
