Gran Habano Azteca El Aguila 5 Pack
5 1/2 x 52 - Maduro - Pack of 5
Azteca cigars are Gran Habano's first Maduro release. According to George Rico, It's actually a double maduro. Both the San Andres wrapper and binder are extra-fermented naturally, without sweating or other artificial means. Using Nicaraguan and Panamanian long-fillers for the core, Rico adds, Our Azteca line exemplifies that 'full flavor,' in contrast to 'full body,' means a harmonious smoke with complexity, depth, smoothness, and individual nuances. A MUST-SMOKE for Maduro hounds!
Decent taste, but it wouldn t stay lit very well and burned pretty unevenly. Draw was pretty heavy too.
Nice, easy going cigar with initially sweet, creamy smoke - but not particularly memorable. There are some astounding sticks available at this price point, as well as plenty of crap. This falls in the middle. At $70-80 a box it would be a keeper.
After reading the first review I was skeptical but it was onsale so I decided if I didnt like them I could give them to friends who are social cigar smokers but dont really know. I was suprised at how good it was and how consistant it was. I plan on buying more
The only good thing about this cigar is the box...rule of thumb, cool box crappy cigar. These taste worse than the ones I've left in the ash try for several days. The burn rate is poor and the ash looks like ash one gets when burning rolled up news paper not a fine gray ash of a good cigar. Stay away from these guys I'm sending mine back.
