"Good Flavor Profile, No Major Complaints"
The cigar visibly was well constructed. It did burn a bit uneven, but I was smoking outside on a windy day. I was able to get it evened up without using the lighter. I thought the flavor profile was solid and my golfing partner even remarked at how good it smelled. IT'S not a Cuban and not a Padron, but for the price, I thought it was well worth the money. Just a step behind the Kristoff and Cain maduros which are smokes I'm pretty familiar with and enjoy immensely and use to measure against other cigars.

"Not even close to the hype."
Sorry to say, but these sticks aren t even close to being worth the money - or any money. CAO appears to be good at writing hype but not so good at living up to their own hype. Not a hint of good, sweet maduro flavors, much less 2X. Buy something else.

"not worth the price"
These things unravel like nobody s business. The draw is so hard it will collapse a lung.

"Highly, HIGHLY, overrated...."
Someone compared this to being as good as a cuban monte #2? That is the most ridiculous statement I've read in some time. These cigars are so mild there close to flavorless. Pretty wrapper, that is arguably dyed. Every single one I smokes had draw, burn, and construction issues. Quality has gone downhill since General Cigar acquired CAO. These are nowhere near a real monte, as bland as a non cuban monte. Stay away. So many better Maduros at the same, and even lower, price points. Beyond overrated!

"Almost a Cubano Cuban Montecristo #2"
Outstanding, almost as good as a Cubano Monte #2. I am shocked at the price, hope it does not go up due to the fine reviews. Well constructed, great smoke, flavor. Do yourself a favor and pick up a sampler and give them a try, you won t be disappointed!

I like everything about this cigar. Very well build, rich and tasty masterpiece. Great par with Scapa single malt whisky. I do recommend it to try.

Ummm wouldn't be my first choice to buy a box of these. Although I have a box stalked. I keep these to smoke every now and then and keep my humidor full. I think someone was made when they rolled these . Wrapped just a wee bit tight which makes me work hard on the draw. AWWWW man ....feeling lite heading. It's not top of the line but it has a nice aroma to it and people question it. if you can't handle a strong full boddied cigar then this one is not for you. This one doesn't come close to the GO!

The next best thing to a Padron. Nice full boddied cigar. finishes up real nice. Gotta be a real man to smoke this stick. "Guy's don't give these away"
