"Not Worth The Time"
Heavy sour notes make this cigar not worth the time. Beautiful cigar construction made this cigar a bigger disappointment. Easy draw and even burn but the flavor never developed into anything enjoyable. Some pepper notes came in the last half but a sour taste came into play by the end if the first third and never really went away. Would not recommend. There are other cigars in the same price point that are a better deal and more enjoyable.

I got this cigar at a wedding..Didn't expect much. but I was pleasantly surprised. Smooth, well constructed, even burn. I really enjoyed this cigar.

Burns nice while I sit in shade and read a long book.

"Great cigar for a new smoker"
These were my very first buy off this site and I was very pleased that I've been searching for them time and time again. They look fantastic to start off with and feel good in the hand. I think these are for a newer smoker since they are more cigar flavor but very mild. The Churchill's take a long time so if you don't want to smoke for over an hour, get a smaller size.

"first cigar and a wise choice"
I bought these about a 4 months ago and smoked different flavors after (to get a better idea about cigars before commenting) and here is what i found. great burn start to finish, even flavor all the way through, and flavor was mild but made my mouth water so tasty. All in all great starter cigar with a mild flavor. or if a return smoke enjoy-er great price for a great smoke.

Smooth taste, even burn, the smell is not too strong and the construction is well put. Also, the draw is good; rolled perfectly.

"Price vs Performance--A Best Buy"
I tried the Gispert natural robusto and enjoyed it immensely. The aroma and taste were sublime and at 54 rings,its burn, consistency and draw and general "feel" were perfect. I have gone to other cigars costing many more $$ but always come back to my favorite. Gispert fits the old answer to an old question--"what is the difference between a $3 cigar and a $10 dollar cigar--to me, the difference between all the more expensive "others" and Gispert natural is 7 bucks. It is my one and only and for that an easy 95 on all scores.

"Will not buy again"
I had high expectations for these cigars. They looked great when they arrived and I was excited to try them. My first cigar was very tasteless. The second burned too hot and tasted like ash. The third cigar tasted so bad I threw out over half of the stick. The last two cigars were a tough draw and didn't have a good taste to them.

"good looking with no personality"
Gispert Cortos (10)
I have basically been a daily cigar smoker for the past 35 years. I usually prefer medium-to-full and double ligero strength smokes, but couldn't resist trying this beautifully wrapped Gispert at a discounted price. It even came with a nice ashtray, so what could go wrong? I knew it would be milder than the others in my humidor and figured that option might be nice occasionally. Draw before lighting: Very creamy wrapper with nutty flavors. 1/3: decent, but faint aroma with little taste to describe. 2/3: same as first third, but with a beautiful even ash. 3/3: immature tobacco flavor with extreme burnt toast taste overtaking anything positive. Conclusion: I still feel like this cigar would be great for the beginner and could mature into something respectable if left alone in the humidor for 12 months.

"Smokes just like the big boys"
The short smokes smoke and taste like the grown-up Gisperts. Absolutely and excellent yardwork cigar here in the deep South.
