"Tastes as good as the Gol! No problems with draw."
I bought a tin of these instead of buying a couple of the Gols like I usually do and I was pleasantly surprised that the draw was so good for a small ring and the taste was true to the Gol size. I'll be buying these for my daily smoke because they're just enough cigar for one sitting and I'm spending less money.

"Stick with full sized"
Don't get me wrong, Brazilia's are brilliant cigars. But smaller sizes suffer, and this was no exception.

These are very tasty and have a nice, dark aroma, but the reviews complaining about the tight wrap are true. I let them sit for a month in the humidor before smoking them, or if I must have one, I use a dart to open the end and perforate it in about an inch, sometimes 3 times. That's the only way to enjoy them if they have not had time in a lower humidity environment. Other than that, they really are a nice, leather/pepper/warm jungle richly flavored smoke for a good price.

They look good and have good reviews, but the draw on them is the worst I've had in a long time. Smoked two and both barely draw. Maybe a bad lot. But I won't smoke the others.

"Waste of money"
These were the worst small cigars I've ever smoked. They were wrapped so tight when I took a draw it felt like the top of my head would cave in. I don't recommend these small cigars to anyone.

"great short smoke for work"
I like the Brazilia go so much that I went ahead and ordered 50 of these for work. These are great small cigars that I have not had a single problem with so far. They are very satisfying short smokes with tons of flavor. I tried some cigarillos that just went way too fast and always left me wanting more but this does the trick. I will always have some of these in my travel humidor.

"Great flavor, great price, quick smoke."
Really great smoke. My first cigar (and smoke ever). It has a good woody taste that just sticks. Great for those times of pondering or socializing. Lasts as short as 15 mins and as long as 30 minutes.

"Wonderful smoke for a short time"
If you don't have long to get in a rich full smoke, this little honey will make it happen.

"Too difficult to draw."
While the appearance and taste is good, the draw is too difficult. I really enjoy a short smoke and have found many excellent cigars to choose from. The CAO Maduro is one of my favorites but the Brazilia is so difficult to smoke that it leaves my lips hurting.

"Nice "dark" flavor, very tough draw"
I loved the mix of sweetness (from the wrapper I guess, which is a very dark oscuro color, which mottled somewhat over time) mixed with the full flavor and only slightly spicy cut. But the amount of tobacco and rolling technique means that the draw is characteristically VERY hard on these cigars, clogged on some, and I like a firm draw. Maybe they need to be aged more and dryed out for an hour prior to smoking. Definitely not for someone who wants an easy draw with lots of smoke.
