"Very good cigar, not great"
As I sat out on the Lanai on Jan 5th in my shorts & sandals, I enjoyed the Camacho Corojo Monarca with an rum & eggnog. The first half of the smoke was the best, allowing some subtle flavors to come through, with an excellent burn and long ash. The second half became slightly less smooth, subtle flavors were harder to find,but not harsh, and the burn became uneven. Overall nothing extradorinary here, but an enjoyable smoke for a $4.50 price. The farts of our one year old Boxer, from eating scraps of our Pad Thai dinner I suppose, he was eventually banished to his house, did not distract too greatly from the experience.

"Put this one on your list to try."
After finishing my first box I can truly say this is a fantastic cigar. Superb construction with a firm draw and even burn. A full bodied cigar with a nice aroma. A serious cigar, probably not for the beginner, but not overbearing either. I take these to the nub everytime.

Had an awful problem with a Corojo Monarca, construction was beyond poor causing the draw to be incredibly over bearing. I bought a Corojo sampler and every other one has been great. Bad press?

"A Gem of a Cigar"
I picked one of these up in Maduro at a local B & M. This is an awesome cigar. It is strong, Honduran grown, and combines a strong full flavored bite with a bit of sweetness in the Maduro. The natural was not quite as good, lacking the sweetness I prefer. I just picked up a box of these and I can't wait to see what they taste like with a little bit of age.

"A Camacho Winner !"
This Camacho Corojo Monarcha Robusto Maduro is a good cigar like Payne Stewart was a good golfer.
Robustos aren't my preferred size/shape but I picked this up in a pack from an FSS auction thinking; "Hey, what's a couple bucks?"
In this case it was a couple bucks well-spent. The maduro Corojo Monarca is very tasty, smooth, of decent strength and the "smoking mechanics" of it were all just fine. And at $3 to $4 a stick you'll easily get your money's worth.
GOOD 'gar ! Thanks FSS !
