"Great taste, but the draw?....."
I've been searching for an alternative to some of the higher priced petit coronas I enjoy, (more of an everyday smoke) and decided to give these a try. Well, I found what I was looking for, I love the taste of this cigar. Simply put, awesome, nice finish, medium-bodied, great aroma. The problem, the draw. So far I've smoked 6 of these and only one had a easy, smooth draw. I've tried different cuts, with the same result. If that issue can be worked out, this cigar is in the same league as the Drew Estate Bait Fish, Ambos Mundos Short #2 Habano or Sumatra, which are my fav's. For the price, and taste, I'm willing to draw a little harder for the time being. Long ashes!!!

"Fantatsic famous Buenos!"
A great one dollar maduro. Full of flavor! Not extremely complex, but great taste. For the price it's one of the best values going! I'm already on my second box! Great 45 minute smoke! They improve with age even after a week!!! Get a box now!

"Great $1 little Maduro...usually. Lately not."
Great little handmade Maduro, sometimes. I buy them 4 boxes at a time, and I buy a LOT. Everything you ever wanted in a goto...execpt consistancy. From Rocky like flavor to the smell of fresh manure (no hyperbole). I just need to buy a truckload and let them mellow and I would have what I want in a goto cigar. Gonna have to build a house from the boxes!

"right size for a good price"
I bought these a week ago and when I opened the box I was a little judgmental, but when I smoked it I found it to be a great value and it worked very well for an after meeting smoke.

"right size for a drive..."
good to have a small maduro that is a little bigger than a pequeno... hard to find a real smoke, real taste in a smaller package... these do quite all right...

"Great for the money"
I just received my first box of these cigars. I wanted something inexpensive and small for a weekday commute cigar. The taste is wonderful, the nicotine level is strong and the smoke lasts about thirty minutes for me.
The draw, however, is extremely tight. I may try jamming a paper clip in the next one and see if that helps.
So long as the price remains the same, I'll keep buying these for the weekdays and save the rest of my cigar budget for premiums on the weekends.

"A little gem"
Just received my box and very happy. I keep various cigars for different occasions. This little maduro was a surprise, good taste, smooth, nice burn and kept it's ash almost through half the stick. For a $1.00 a stck it's an excellent value if you wany a little quicky, a keeper.

Draw is a bit tight for me, but still a nice big wonderful smoke. Will buy a box of these. Construction is nice, tightly wrapped, sturdy enough for kicking around the yard, well made.

"Still tasty after all these years"
Dug to the bottom of the coolerdor this morning and found a half box of Maduritos from a purchase >4 yrs ago. Smoked 3 today and they're still just as good as I remember. The draw is still a bit tight. The taste still takes a few draws to get settled in, but, once it does, it's very enjoyable. Not one of those carnival rides of changing flavors, but just solid, steady, and good. I think I paid something like $25 for this box way back when. Because of the petite corona size, I *might* not cough up $40 shipping to get another batch, but I'm sure keeping an eye out for them to go on sale or to show up on CigarMonster. You should do the same.
