"Great cigar for cigar fans just starting out..."
I have been buying the 11's since the 90's when they still had the old blue bands, they are reliable and have been around a while now. The #11 provides a pleasant medium bodied flavor and the size is large enough to provide a good smoking experience, especially for new cigar fans on a limited budget. I first bought these for my son to enjoy when he decided he was ready to smoke cigars, instead of him raiding my humidors. After graduating to better cigars, he is now introduing his son to cigars using the Don Mateo #11's as well. Not a bad cigar for the money, for a smoker who is looking for a real cigar experience at a budget price.
