"The pleasure was all mine"
Interesting smoke. I enjoyed this stick and now I have a box in my humidor and life is beautiful.

"Good smoke, had better worse."
Had the natural. Good smoke, amazing draw. It's not amazing, and I've had better for cheaper, I've also had much worse. Definitely recommend.

"Great stick for the price!"
I just finished smoking the Carinos with the natural wrapper. The pre-light smell was very pleasant, it had a sharp spice when exhaled through the nose. It was a nice even burn all the way to the end. The taste was consistent throughtout the first 2 thirds, and got a little bitter at the end. The draw was very good the entire time. It was rolled very well with no soft spots, and the wrapper was attractive with small veins.

"Good bang for the buck"
My Carino suffered from an inconsistent roll with a couple soft spots, one of which was down right spongy to the point that, even squeezing lightly, I squeezed the cigar down to half thickness. The burn reflected the roll, burning unevenly and requiring 2 corrections in the first half, but straightened out well after burning past the worst soft spot, and held ash surprisingly well. (almost 2 inches) Pre-light draw was light to medium and had a flavor that reminded me of the Turkish cigarettes I used to smoke. The flavor right after lighting was smooth and crisp with a sharp spiciness when exhaled through the nose. Flavor remained consistent through the first 2 thirds with the spiciness through the nose tapering off slightly. The last third added a creamy flavor for a nice finish. Draw while smoking is easy without being too light and provides plenty of smoke. Overall this is a good basic, low buck stick, great as an outside smoke.

"Natural is not bad at all"
I bad-mouthed the maduro version of this cigar, and I meant every word. The least I can do is give praise where praise is due. The natural version of this cigar is great all the way around... taste, burn, draw... all good. The maduro and the natural are like two completely different cigars. Maduro-bad, natural-good.

"Carinos Natural very good"
Just finished one in the natural wrapper today and it was very tasty. Smooth, creamy, and I much prefer this one to the maduro version.

Got a couple in a sampler, liked them a lot. Bought a box. Creamy, flavorful smoke. Best I've found, and at a reasonable price.

"Not bad. Not bad at all."
Better than I expected based on the ugly wrapper. Nice flavor, nice aroma, good burn and draw.

I got five and gave them some time in my humidor. Great draw and burn but tasted awful. It was so terrible tasting that I gave the remaining sticks to a friend who came to the same conclusion and them the rest out. The price and reviews drew me in but the taste drove me away!!
