I expect more from a $5 cigar. The taste was respectable, but the cigar was ugly, soft and harsh near the end.

"Great with Coffe and Irish Cream"
1 cup coffee + 1 shot Irish Cream + One Java Cigar = Heaven on Earth.

Excellent cigar, impressive aroma, nice draw and a solid construction. Pricey but definitely worth every penny. One of the best I've tried. Thank you Famous

"BURNS THE THROAT"
I am a big fan of Drew Estates cigars, flavored-infused and non-flavored. I regularly smoke Acid Atom Maduros, Acid Blondies, Acid Cold Tea Infusions, Natural Dirt Torpedos, and Natural Elixers. I love the Kahlua! So I bought a 5-pack of the Java Corona Maduros based on my experience with Drew Estates and the 9.4 Java received here. I put them in the humidor for a couple of days and lit one tonight. The first 1/3 of the stick had nice hints of cocao and coffee with that good Nicaraguan filler finish. Then it started to become bitter. On the way down the second 1/2, the smoke began to burn the back of my mouth and I could not smoke any more. The finish now was all bitterness and I had to smoke a Blondie to get the taste out of my mouth. I'll leave the rest in the humidor for a couple of weeks to see it they mellow. If the next one is like this first, I will throw the rest away.

I had a Java last night. My problem was that I only had beer to pair it with...BAD IDEA. Ruined the flavor and not to mention, I ran out of beer and then got rained on. I will definitely buy it again, but will pair it appropriately with coffee or cocoa next time! Very pleasing scent. My wife doesn't smoke and she loved this thing. In fact, she came out and smoked a quarter of it herself just because she loved the smell so much

"My favorite among many"
By far my favorite. I've tried alot of different cigars, and tend to go for the flavored. Not only good to the last draw, but a really nice smell for those who don't smoke. I'm taking some of these to Mexico where I can get a good Cuban all day long.

"They're Great but..."
...there's a similar (more like identical) tasting cigar on this site called Solo Cafe that is MUCH cheaper. But if it's aesthetics you're into, the Java by Drew Estate is unmatched.
