I found the first few puffs a bit rough. Being used to the oily wrappers of Padron, the cigar seemed a bit dry. Fresh, but dry as in non-oily. Very creamy smoke. Basically one flavor, but it's good. Taste improves about 1/2 way through. I am going to age these in the humidor. I think it would do them a lot of good.

"From Our House to You, With Pride"
Pride. And justifiably so. An outstanding medium smoke that starts out with a statement and builds to an outstanding last third I smoked all the way to the nub. Excellent cigar for any from beginner on up. Nice job for a couple guys from Boston!

"Very nice cigar and a good value."
Agree with others here; this is a nice cigar. I tried a 5-pack of these for a change of pace from my usual (mild) Baccarat Robustos. I'd call it a medium flavored smoke and give it a rating in the high 80's. All five of the sticks I got were beautifully made with a nice smooth even color to the wrapper, and no lumps or detectable soft spots. The smoke was rich with a nice aroma, the cigar finished very well, and they burned evenly with a nice clean grey/white ash. If you're used to smoking a mild cigar this is a nice change of pace that I think you'll find comfortable; more flavor and no harshness. Not one of the cheapest smokes in the catalog but in my opinion a good value for the money. I'm adding some more to my humidor for after dinner smokes on the patio.
