"Pretty Darned Good!"
After reading the back-page advertisement of these cigars in a recent catalog, I ordered a couple of bundles. Heck, 7 years of extra aging with a price like that sounded great to me! When I got them, I was impressed by their solid construction.
I took one down to my regular Tuesday night hangout, cut the tip, and was a bit disappointed to find the tip sweetened á la Swisher Sweets. However, it only lasted for a few seconds (I figure if I dip the tip in a cognac or port next time, *that* oughta fix things up!).
The smoke itself I would rate as medium-strength, with pronounced roasted notes on the tongue. A very satisfying smoke, considering it should be so mild. Believe me, I only need one of these to get me through a night!
Bottom Line: construction, draw, taste, & price make this cigar a fine choice.

"Very good cigar for the price"
I bought a bundle of the Baccarat Sumatra Double Corona several weeks ago and have been impressed with the easy draw, even burn and fine white-gray ash. The cigar is mild to medium with a spicy taste which I enjoy. I have been looking for a good inexpensive everyday cigar, that's not too expensive and I think I may have found it. At a little over a buck a cigar, the taste can't be beat.
