First few minutes of smoking this the draw took a couple of deep breaths but after that it was a breeze, extremely smooth. Peppery taste in the beginning until stick warms up then halfway through a mild mint taste, very easy on the pallet. The ash held on to its half inch or more without fail. The aroma was mildly sweet and enjoyable. No unraveling of the binding and burned very evenly. Overall a very enjoyable smoke with this one. Will definitely put this one into heavy rotation.

"This one is a dud."
Tasted of burning pine cones. Loose wrap. Lots of veins. TONS OF SMOKE.

"I would pass this puro"
I was not impressed with this cigar - I had this cigar in my humidor for eight weeks. It had an uneven burn. I had to relight it very often. I had flakes of ash every where; in 1/4 of length, in ash, it fell over my lap - it does not hold well. The taste was bland. The draw was okay. It did looked very handsome but as stated above, I will pass up this cigar.

Just smoked one of these from the 20/20 bundle. Better than a lot of cigars at twice or three times the price. No complaints. Went great with my single malt on the rocks.

"Stands out in a bad way"
It looked good and smelled okay. The draw was terrible, like sucking through a toilet paper tube, and the cigar started unraveling as I smoked it. It was part of a sampler, and the only bad one of the bunch.

"Nice mild stick."
I've read the negative and the positive reviews. The construction problems described did not occur in any of the 30 or so sticks I've smoked so far. The burn is even, the flavor is a mild butterscotch / leather and the robusto is a very nice, short smoke. It goes with a cup of coffee or if you're watching a movie and you're near the end, it's a pleasant ending.
I have smoked better sticks, but paid four times as much for them. I've also paid more for other sticks and liked them much less.
So these will join my rotation. And if anyone wants to be snobbish about a cheap cigar, that's fine with me. The price won't go up. ;o)>

After 2 months in the humidor, the cigar swelled past the band and the wrapper barley came off. Removing the band also tore a hole in the leaf . The cigar burned with long runs down it's side and had to be re lit several times. Was happy to be done with the last one and would never order again even at the two for one rate I bought them at. They almost looked as if the were wet once and then dried from the bumps under the wrapper leaf and the inconsistent diameter down its length.

I have got one stick in sampler jf 26 different cigars. It was the worst one. The draw was so bad, that I could not try its taste. It seems it has no taste, I even thought it had stopped burning.

Here was another cigar I was looking forward to trying and it was not anything to brag about. Very mild and no taste I can determine. Constructed well and burns well. Will not buy these again though unless really cheap price.

"I really dig these"
I forget why or when I bought these from Famous. I think it was part of a deal Famous had several months ago. Truthfully, I didn't expect much since it wasn't my primary purchase. Man was I wrong! These are in my top 5. Great in the morning with a cup o' joe, or any time you just want a great mild smoke.
