El Credito Monarch
El Credito Senadores
I bought this cigar based on user ratings. I was not disappointed. Excellent taste and a fine crafted cigar. Med-full bodied. Long smoke. Only negative is I found it a little tight on draw.

"A harsh taste compared to the Monarch"
El Credito Churchill
I smoke El Credito's dailey. I have been pleased with all but two. The Senadora and the Habernaro seem to be made with a greener leaf and are very harsh tasting compared to the rest of the line. I was disappointed and will stick to the great tasting Monarch or Churchill

This is one of the best. I have smoked all the major brands and find myself pulled to this cigar every time I open my humidor. Just ordered another bundle of 20 today and will keep these stocked in my collection. I actually like this better than the La Glorias.

"Not worth the price."
El Credito Super Habanero
Tried these because I heard they were basically La Gloria "2nds". Very disappointed with the construction, taste, burn, just about everything. Have had the balance of the bundle in the humidor for about 6 months now. A little better taste, but still overpriced for what they are. Save your money and buy the La Glorias.

"thin wrapper, soft capsule, good value smoke"
El Credito Belicoso
The Super Habanero is a poor man's Montesino Napoleon. I smoked Fuentes fumas for years until they became outrageously expensive (they went from $18 bundle to $35+). The Super Habanero is thin skinned, but avoids the harshness of most dollar cigars. They are not peppery or hot, registering a cooler smoke than most cigars in this category. They are loosely packed,like the Fuentes, which means happily that they are not likely to be plugged. All in all this is a smoke that provides sound value coupled with a satisfactory tasting experience. They are best directed at those who smoke 4 to 5 cigars a day. They have a place in that rotation.

"on #no5 bundle"
El Credito Imperial
I sure started out complaning.I'am on my 5th bundle and i think they've all turned out to be better than the last 3 boxes of la gloris's.Just have to age awhile and put up with the minor inperfection.

"they get better"
You can go ahead and remove my first commit on the El Credito,i aged them for awhile and they did get better.You have to be a little gentle with them because the thin binder does want to peel off.for a bundle cigar they dont taste too bad.I've decided i rather pay a little more and just buy a better cigar,and not hassle with the binder and the burn."BUT NOT TOO BAD"
