"Nothing bad, nothing good."
Very mild. Not a ton of smoke. Just a very, very plain cigar.

"Overall pleasent smoke but nothing special"
Consistent flavor throughout.
Draw was a bit too light and burn was uneven. Mild, pleasant flavor with hints of latte and roasted almond.

"OK, but not for me."
This cigar was part of a mild sampler and although I wanted to like this one, I just can't recommend it.
It appeared to be well constructed. It cut and lit easily, but the burn was uneven for the entire cigar. The ash held well but the draw was too light. Mild is also an understatement.
I am a novice to smoking cigars, recently getting seriously into them, but the taste was not there. Not that it was bad, just not for me.

"Mild, Consistent, Flavor"
I recently tried 2 of these and both were well constructed and burned evenly. Definitely a mild Macanudo, but flavorful and a nice change.

"a great smoke"
been smoking these for years and find the constution to be very consistent and the smoke great, right down to the nub.always trying others looking for a better smoke such as pradron, gloria cubano etc and always look foreward to my cream de jamacia.

Got it as part of a sampler. I found it mild to the point of ridiculousness. It was akin to smoking air. Maybe a beginner might find some pleasure in it, and indeed it might be a good cigar for beginners, but for anyone looking for a cigar with full bodied favor, this is not the one.

"Mediocre at best"
Honestly, I got this in a sampler. It burned fine, not too hot, not too cool, evenly, etc. The ash was very loose, if that matters to anyone. The construction of it seemed fine.
But that's not what matters most to me. The smoke was not that creamy at all (compare to, say rocky patel or Olor). The taste, for what was even there, was slightly sweet on the exhale, but it was hardly even aromatic. I hardly tasted anything without exhaling, and even then it was a standard "nut" sweetness on the exhale, which is found in torrents of other, much more enjoyable cigars.
I don't recommend it. I've had a better cigar from a gas station, and it pains me to say that.

I got this as part of a sampler and was one I hadn't heard of before and so just wanted to smoke it and get it outta the way and hope for a nice surprise.
I ended up having to light this dam stick up 3 friggin times! The burn was so bad...and the draw wasn't smooth either. After the every initial light, I would get only a few decent draws and it was downhill from there.
I would stay away from this one.

"Good but mild"
Decent little cigar...starts a little bitter when first lit...then slowly becomes a little more mild a creamy...great with a cup of black coffee. Good if you want a break from full flavored cigars. But I would still prefer the CAO gold to this.

Got this in a sampler. Burned beautifully with a nice white ash. The taste neither offended nor thrilled me.
