"A steal when you want a man's cigar."
It's simple. Throughout the boom we saw tons of different styles and tons more of the same old thing. It took this upstart Rocky to make a cigar that doesn't make you feel like the old man on the golf course without resorting to gimmick smokes. Taste way overcomes any burn problems, but all box-pressed sticks have similar issues. I'm sick of shelling out large dollars for weak stogies. I'm happy to throw down 3 bills for a box of IT hercules cigars and even happier to see FS finally throw that extra deal in to get me to switch suppliers. A caveat however: in bone dry Tucson, a tight, difficult burn and tough draw cigar means a cigar that stays moist. Burning anything longer than 6" will dry out and unravel before you're done smoking it. Smiles and smoke to all.

Have tried to smoke 4 out of 5 given to me by a friend. Beautiful wrapper with notes of chocolate. However the burn on all 4 so far has been terribly uneven & very hard to keep lit. Not worth the trouble.

"Good cigar for the price"
I have smoked several boxes of this cigar, and every one has been a pleasure. So far, I have not had a bad burner or hard smoker yet. Good full flavor from start to finish.

"The worst cigar ever!!!"
This is, be the worst cigar that I have ever smoked. From the beginning to the end of this box every single cigar had a horrible burn and draw. They were only consistant in the fact that they were all horrible. As a subscriber to Cigar Aficionado I can't believe that they gave it such a high rating! I couldn't put these down for five seconds without having to re-light and even out the burn. If I wanted to work this hard doing anything I would have stayed married. Stay away from these!

"Not worth the $"
The draw was about the only good quality this cigar had. Uneven burn, poor wrapper. Full flavored but no charactor or dimension to it at all. Certainly not worth the price.
