"Great smoke, terrific value!"
Even burn, consistent draw. Construction is good. For my money the Hoyo cigars are the best value going. I would pay twice as much and still be happy( don't get any ideas FSS!) Great all around cigar for the newbie to the more advanced taste. If you are looking for a daily smoker or a golf course smoke this is it.

"my new #1 for my new, young re-smoking career"
What a great cigar - at this time, it has to be my #1.. I couldn't resist and pared it with a double bock Salvator (beer).
I wanted to smoke it down to nothing or use a clip!! used a v-cut (doing all v-cuts these days to compare) draw was EXCELLENT with the v-cut, unlike others that seem to draw too loose.
While not as creamy at the start (or throughout to me - especially when compared to a Bolivar Cofradia Suntuoso Corona Extra) it was a bit spicy. I am not big on spice and there was certain amount of spice in the beginning (perhaps I lit it too harsh/wrong).
After that (cold draw cold aroma matched) hints of coco and nuttiness after the first inch smoked and it would bounce between chocolate coco and nutty and every now and again some spice. (maduro wrapper)

"Great tasting smooth cigar. Very even burn."
This is a great tasting smooth cigar with an even burn that won't take all day to smoke. Great cigar, great price.

"Good cigar but construction was less than expected"
I enjoyed this cigar but found I had trouble with the wrapper unraveling as I smoked it. Good flavor tho, and consistent draw from cigar to cigar, But, I'm going back to Excalibur.

"This has become my favorite cigar"
The construction has been very consistent, cigar after cigar. Always an easy draw, and the full flavor that I enjoy.
