"An Excellent Morning Coffee Cigar"
I really enjoy this smoke early in the morning along with a cup of strong, black unsweetened coffee. The construction, burn, flavor and draw have been consistently pleasant. The sweetness of the cigar is not overpowering and there is not the ?chemical taste? that I seem to get from the Java cigars.

"Still good after 50 more boxes!"
I liked these cigars (Rothschild Maduro)when I first smoked them 3 years ago. I gave another review 2 years ago after a dozen or so boxes. Now, two years and about 50 boxes further into this cigar, I still have found no other with this consistency of flavor, draw and construction for even twice the price. Oh sure, some of them are not as pretty or as perfect as some more expensive cigars, but they are consistently pleasant and flavorful, with an easy draw and good amounts of smoke. Baccarat Maduros will continue to be my everyday cigar until I find a better one and, although I keep trying, I haven't yet found one as consistent.

"Absolutely Fine Smoke"
I have smoked several Baccarat cigars with the natural wrapper, but finally got around to trying the maduro rothschild and all I can say is "Wow"! This little baby kicks butt! I've paid several times the price of this cigar for 'top of the line premiums', and the Baccarat Maduro Rothschild can go toe to toe with the vast majority of them. A truly enjoyable smoke, and one I'll be seeking out in the future.

"Still my favorite after 18 months"
In November, 2005 I raved about the Rothschild 5x50 Maduro after 4 boxes. Now I can say, after an additional 12 boxes, that I still haven't had a bad one. Oh, yes, every now and then one doesn't burn perfectly evenly, but every one has had a smooth draw, lots of smoke, and great taste right up until the time I burn my fingers. I look forward all day to sitting outside with my cigar and having one hour of peace and let go of the day's stress. The Baccarat is my unwinder. If anyone has found a better cigar for a buck seventy-five, I would be surprised.

"My Favorite Evening Cigar"
Baccarat has become my favorite everyday cigar - A Natural in the afternoon at work, a Sumatra when outside playing, and a Maduro in the evening just before bed. The 5X50 Maduro is so flavorful and so mild that I burn my fingers at the end. I am on my fourth box of these Maduros and every one of them has been well constructed with a smooth draw and an appropriate amount of smoke. The taste is a 10. Try them if you like flavorful but mild to medium Maduros.

"Try The MADUROS!!"
I started off with the naturals, thinking that this was the best damn cigar and all i ever needed. One day my local snobbish cigar retailer ran out of them and all they had left were the maduros. So I tried it and so to say.... These kick ass!!! Fans of Baccarat if you have not tried the maduros.... Take my advice, they're wonderful!!

"A very enjoyable cigar!"
I can´t really understand how this cigar can burn uneven, the one I just smoked burned perfect (I have smoked a lot of Cohiba Esplendidos that have burned a lot worse than this one). The taste was good, a bit woody. I found i a bit sweet at the beginning but it mellowed of. The sweetness of the cigar invited me to enjoy a drink of Ouzo which went very well with the cigar. I´ve just discovered another favourite!

"Great tasting cigar"
Being a relatively new cigar smoker, I have tried at least 15 different labels. This one is by far the best as a sweet, great smelling every day smoke. It does burn a little unevenly, but so have my $12 Cuesta Rey's (my favorite). But my wife loves the smell of them and she doesn't complain like she does with some of the other more full flavored, potent smelling cigars. Stock up!

"Was this a Cigar??"
I recieved this in the Grand slam Sampler and Found it to be a vast dissapointment. The construction was horrible and the taste even worse. I can only think that all these people in here who really like this have never really tried a good cigar cause in my view this ain't even close.

I laughed when I saw a review that said I should have smoked the band instead! This stick started with a sweetness that was overcome by a bitter, strong coffee-like taste. It was the most uneven burn I've experienced. If you got 'em, give 'em to an ex-friend.
