Just an awful cigar. Horrible flavor. How this made Cigar Aficionado's top 50 list is beyond me.

"these need a while in the humi"
Your are going to want to store these in a humidor for a while. Once they get some humidity back they are OK. Remember you are only paying 2 bucks a piece.

"A Sleeper - give them 2 yrs and WOW"
The #4 and the Robusto are the best two vitolas in this blend. The are terrible OTT; however, they age very well and really display the Nicaraguan qualities at the year mark. At the 2 yr. mark, the floral and Black Cherry notes are incredible on the finish.

I just got done smoking one. I have had it my humidor for about 2 months and decided that today was the day to try the Independencia. What a bad decision. The taste was awful, the roll was loose, and the burn was uneven. Maybe it was because it was such a hot day (95 degrees) but the cigar started to become very dry and explode as I puffed through about 50% of it. I am glad I was able to find out about this cigar through the sample pack and not by ordering an entire box. Do yourself a favor, if you truly love to relax with a good cigar, pass on this one.

"surprisingly good taste"
i was surprised by the taste of this cigar. it burned better than i had anticipated, i got it in a La Aruroa sampler, this cigar was memorable. It canoed slightly but evened itself out midway thru the smoke which lasted bout 40 minutes. it has a toasted nutty flavor thru the mid section and finishes rather bold and strong. i would purchase this size again as it was much better than aniticipated, however, the construction was medicore as it canoeod early but must actually be a long filler smoke as it lasted a decent amount of time. the mid section made the cigar worth the $2 i paid for it. i got my money's worth on this cigar and would buy it again for less than $3 a stick.

"Smells Like Cheap Perfume"
Bought these because they were cheap. There's a reason, they stink like cheap perfume, very cheap perfume. The smell will gag you It stays around for a l--o--n--g time. Buy these to give to guys you want to inflict some grief on.

"Not up to par"
Pulled a Robusto out to spark up on the way to work. The construction was loose and had to touch up the light a few times. Was looking for better quality from La Aurora. Maybe needs more time to sit. Taste was just OK.
