Georges Reserve Lonsdale 5 Pack
6 1/2 x 44 - Natural - Pack of 5
Georges Reserve Lonsdale 5 Pack is an affordably-priced, mild to medium-bodied premium cigar made by the Oliva Family in Esteli, Nicaragua. The blend starts with dark, fully-aged Nicaraguan longfillers that are rich in flavor and remarkably smooth. An African Cameroon leaf binder harmonizes well with the earthy Nicaraguan tobaccos, while a silky Ecuadorian wrapper completes the mix. The result is a well-balanced cigar laced with caramelized flavors of cedar, spice, and a note of vanilla on the finish.
ive previously raved writing a review on a different size of this same cigar. my expectations are that im receiving an actual premuim cigar, not even close when it comes to this lonsdale size. Ive had 3 from the box, all the wrappers have broken midway or sooner into the smoke. expect several large stems in every cigar as this filler blend is complete crap. These are tightly rolled, but the filler is loaded with stems and even knots. its a complete waste of a good blend. These come from the Oliva factory which doesnt begin to pride itaself on construction. Virtually everything they make has burning issues and construction problems. Oliva's dont seem to care much for quality. Nevermind my rave review on this cigar in the other size, ,avoid these lonsadale's at all costs. i won a box for less than half the famous smoke retail price and i still got ripped off. Do yourself a favor, avoid the Goerge Reverse lonsdale for certain, Oliva family doesnt seem to mind selling cigars loaded with stems and plugs, which means they want to make money any means necessary, forget quality, they dont know what that means. Virtually every cigar Olvia Family makes is crap, this lonsdale should not be put in a box, it should be part of the value line bundles, at least you know what your paying for and not duped into thinking your getting a quality cigar. These have gone to crap which i blame on the Oliva factory for consistently producing crap played off as premium cigars. These flat out suck.
Beautiful 3 inch ash all the way to the label. To enjoy it best: a cup of chickory/coffee with sweet cream and a nice fire. Mild but complex. Consistent all the way to the nub - and I actually smoked it to the NUB.
I bought this cigar in a two for one sale and am very happy . I'm sure I will reorder them again .
This is an excellent medium-body smoke with toasty, woody character. The Cameroon binder adds touch of spice. Because the draw was bit bit tight at first, I put the box into my coolidor for 6 months to let them age. That was the cure indeed. They are at their best now, smoking sweet, easy and tasty.
