When I first started smoking cigars I stuck with GyV and Dutch Masters because I was young and dumb. Then I went to a cigar shop to try one of the major league cigars and picked up the Cohiba Red Dot Robusto. I remember it being great and having a nice cedar taste to it. Very sweet and smooth. I set my cigar "bar," to that level thinking all cigars would be like that. I smoked a ton of different cigars after that trying to find my cigar. One that I can call my favorite. Then the other day i bought the Ol' Money Sampler and it came with 2 Cohiba Red Dots and a big smile came across my face thinking of how dumb I was smoking Dutch Masters. I let the Cohibas sit in my humidor for 2 weeks and lit one up just because I was curious as to why I set my "bar," to this particular cigar and I was instantly reminded. This smoke is all around amazing. Great burn, the camaroon wrapper gives a nice sweet creaminess and sweet aroma, and the draw is incredible. Each one is amazing and brings me back a few years when I first started smoking cigars and I cannot wait to smoke the second one and pick a few more up.

"Like Licking an Ashtray"
I don't understand how these receive consistent high ratings. very very "ashy" and harsh

"Not worth the price"
I would almost compare this to a $2 cigar you find at the gas station. It is very rough and starts out with a weak taste but does it better towards the end.

"Good smoke, overpriced"
Have to agree with DrDogend. A decent smoke, but CAO or Fuente are better at about half the price.

A excellent Cigar that's not worth the price. Still a good smoking cigar. Would buy more if they were cheaper. Tried 5 robustos that were very consistent with good construction and burn. I will still keep a few on hand for my collection.

"Paying for the name"
Definitely notworth $14 per stick ! The wrapper was a little spotty making me wonder if the Turk wise buy was not pushing seconds. The flavor was uninspired,consistent but with no building of notes and although the burn was even with decent ash,the draw was painfully hard!The CAO Cx2's that came with the deal were a far superior smoke . The bottom line is I will treat them like the expensive bottles of wine one gives to people who care more for the label than the product ,generously hand them out and hoard my CAO's and Rocky Patel's!

"Good but not for $15"
Smoked one of these last weekend. Had a great taste, nice draw. All around an awesome cigar. I got a 5 pack on cigar monster for $30. I dont think I would ever pay 15 a stick though. But def recomend these if you can get a good deal

"A very satisfying smoke"
This cigar burned evenly throughout, so much flavor and power I thought it was a full not medium! Great taste and great aroma. I knocked it for apperance and construction as it looked "veiny" which made me nervous but wasn't a problem. I have 4 more in my box, I'm not sharing!!!
