"Nice, but watch it 1/3 way in"
So my brother introduced me to these when I visited him earlier this summer. He is a big fan as are his friends, they all smoke them. Cops like these apparently. Anyway, I'm not a huge fan a ACID smokes, occasionally they're nice but for the most part I'm a Honduran guy. Punch, Hoyo, Padron etc. But after trying them a couple of nights I decided I might try a box and work into my regular stash. I have to say, I do like the switch from time to time. It really mixes it up. Could I do them every day? No way. Too much. Too sweet. The smokes themselves are well made and have an easy draw which is a big stickler for me. Lots of smoke and a mild-medium feel. I will say that nearly every one about 1/3 the way in had a run of bitter tobacco (it's not a deal breaker, just annoying). Once you get past that, then it's smooth sailing. Don't let your lady friends take a toke, they tend to swipe it from you.

From the moment I cut the end short filler started to fall out. I had to pick tobbaco out of my mouth all through the smoke. Once I removed the cigar band the wrapper started to unravel.It had a good burn and draw, The flavor was just OK. It was not an enjoable smoke.

"I'M SOLD! And about to buy a box of these"
Wow, I guess you could call these "JAVA LITE'S" by Drew Estate. For me, there is just enough coffee flavor that I can taste and enjoy the rest of the blend as well.

"Very Nice Cigar"
I am a huge Drew Estate fan
already.Their cigars are well crafted.I am a avid Acid Blondie and Natural smoker. I really enjoyed the sweet mocha essence and it kept it flavor until the end. My only complaint a nd it is small it didnt start off burning even.
I certainly will partake in many more of these.

"Best smoke for the money"
I've smoked thousands of cigars and have lost my taste for my favorite Cameroons. These Isla Toros are wonderful. It's all I smoke. The women like the aroma and I like the flavor. The large ring guage is best anf I highly reccommend a V-cutter.

I know normally anybody used to smoking AB Tempus Centurias or Rocky Patel Old World (myself included) dont go much for flavored cigars . But these guys are really good, well made , nice burn , not too sweet, 1/3 the price of their big brother Acid Kuba Kuba and retain a nice flavor thru-out where the Kuba gets pretty hot the last third in.Really a very pleasant smoke , wouldn't be ashamed to light one up with the Cohiba or Ashton crowd at all.

"Something a little different"
These cigars are a great deviation from the norm. It's sweet throughout, and even leaves a taste on your lips for an hour after you've finished it. Not the kind of cigar I would smoke every day, for the same reason you wouldn't want to follow a glazed donut with a soda- it gets a little too sweet. But for a relaxing weekend cigar, perhaps while grilling, this is a cigar worth coming back to. I do.
