I ve bought 5-ers of these Brillantes several times. I like them as a midday cigar. They re lovely, never had construction problems, draw is neither loose or tight, and flavor is really fine. I smoke about 3 cigars a day and I like to keep these around for when I want a milder moderate-bodied smoke.less

I did everything right with this stick yet halfway through it literally started to fall apart on me. Perhaps I had the one bad stick out of the box, but I would not try another. Too bad because it really tasted goid.less

Got a couple of these with a boutique sampler. After letting them chill out in the humidor for about a month I smoked the first one on a nice sunny afternoon. The wrapper cracked in 3 different places upon lighting it up and my humidor is set at around a constant 75, as I like my cigars more on the moist side for a slower burn, so i know it wasn't dry. The cigar had little to no flavor and was literally like smoking air or maybe a Marlboro Light. It was not creamy and felt like a cheap and poorly made stogie. It did burn fairly even and had a decent draw on the last half to one third, but still did not gain any flavor throughout. Also had a bitter after taste, reminiscent of a cheap cigar. Maybe the others will be better but honestly I will probably give that one out to a friend the next time I have people over and we smoke a stogie. At least I know I won't be losing anything. Definitely a straight filler in that sampler. Would never buy again for sure.less

Burned uneven for me and it had little to no flavor. I ended up just throwing it away. It was bit like smoking a cigar. I'm not a Pro at this stuff so take my comments with a grain of salt. Try one before you buy more.less
