"Black Knight is it!"
I feel that the taste is good in the start then to a spicy to bitter, although it is a dark cigar it is inconsistent to the burn. A comparrison is the ONXY Reserve Toro or the Romeo & Julieta(maduro)Reserve, those cigars are the two to compare and the C.A.O. Mx2 is another. Good cigar but no banana.

This was a great cigar, up until the halfway point. Smooth with a slight sweetness to the aftertaste, then once I hit halfway it turned bitter. First half was worth it though, will buy again.

Re-visit to an old favorite. Some taste inconsistency, but very good impression overall. Rich flavor when right and burn fine. Definitely back in the rotation. Five star jaw breaking smoke. Recommended.

"The Things I've Read/Reviews"
Well, I don't know what to say! I bought a box of these smokes when they first came out, and they have a great appearance with a nice toothy wrapper, and an excellent burn, along with an excellent draw. I never had any of the difficulties that have been described here!!

"Beautiful but rough taste"
These are gorgeous, black, oily cigars. Well made and easy to smoke. My only complaint is that they taste kinda rough around the edges. Very full-bodied and robust, they need a few more months in the humidor to mellow and smooth out a little. After smoking a full box, I have not encountered the construction problems the other guys wrote about. If you can afford an extra $40 per box, buy Romeo y Julieta Reserve (Maduro) Robustos. If you can't, these are pretty good.

The last several boxes of this cigar have been a disappointment. The cigar will not burn even.

"Good cigar but a lot of work."
I left this cigar in my humidor for about 2 months before trying one. This is one strong cigar that tastes pretty good. It has a great draw and gives you a ton of smoke, which I really like. However, every cigar in the box burned crooked (extremely crooked) and wanted to go out about halfway through. Smoking these cigars proved to be a lot of work. If you don't mind working at the cigar, then I recommend it. But if you want a relaxing experience, smoke something else.
