"Not my cup of tea!"
Cigar was ok, a bit green tasting. Mellowed out in the middle got a little flavor. Reminded me of a bad Macanudo. I give it a 5.0. It is not my cup oftea. Burn was ok, ash was ok. Bad smelling after done ashcan smell. Not a good house gar.

"Certainly not the "Creme of the Crop""
A terrible disappointment. Draw? Can you say 'plugged'? Taste? Can you say 'next to none'? Smoking experience? Can you say 'nightmare'?
Just glad I got this as part of a sampler, and didn't actually go and buy 5, or a box. This is one you'll not find in my humidor again. Matter of fact, it's one you'll not find me touching again. Sucking on a rock ..... is pretty much the extent of it. Trashed it after the first 1/3. That was too late.

"Doesn't Make The Cut for My Humidor"
Just got this in my "15 Incredible Cigars" sampler. It's a nice looking cigar and surprisingly burned well, considering other reviews. The aroma was mild but pleasant. However, there wasn't much flavor and a slight sourness on the finish. If you want mild, you are much better off with a Mac or even a Helix.

Got this as a part of a sampler and left it in the humidor not expecting much. When I finally got around to it I was pleasantly surprised. It burned well with a correct draw but although a bit mild for my tastes it had a nice peppery spice flavor that developed about a third in. May not buy them by the box but won't leave them to last either.

"Are You Guys Sure You Smoked Creme de Jamaica?"
This came in a sampler called "15 Incredible Cigars." Well that was true for many of them, but not this one. The draw was on the tight side, the smoke did not taste or smell good, and I found it to be a chore to smoke. I did not experience one minute of satisfaction with this stinker and threw it away after 20 minutes. Most of the Famous bundles that I've smoked have been better than this, and for less money, too.

Got this cigar in a free sampler. Was surprised how good it is. I think it is better than Macanudo

A little harsh upon lighting, but quickly smoothed out to a very enjoyable smoke. Draw was alittle tight. I think this would be a great every day stick. Great price.

"impeccable, outstanding, very nice surprise!"
This cigar is a very nice surprise, impeccable construction, even burn, mild flavor, but nice aroma and with subtle overtones. Smooth finish with a mild lingering aroma and aftertaste. Actually kind of pretty, too. I'm very pleased; it has now displaced considerably more expensive cigars on my list.

I liked this cigar alot. The taste started off very toasty like, and then developed into a mild but spicy/creamy body. Great for the price.

"Overtly Mild Cigar"
Aromatic cigar that burned evenly and slow. Thick mild smoke. A good general purpose cigar. Look for the slightly spicy after taste.
