"The flavor of this cigar is nuts"
Hazel nuts to be exact. This tasted just like hazel nut coffee, but without the sickly sweet taste. Nice peppery finish. Fantastic cigar. Too bad you can't get them for less than $2 - I'd smoke them every day.

"Great cigar for a great price"
Joya de Nicaragua was once the most recognizable brand to come out of Nicaragua. With smokes like these, it's no wonder that they're still highly respected among avid smokers. This blend offers a balanced assortment of sweets and spices without being overpowering. That's not to say, however, that this isn't a powerful cigar. It's certainly a full-bodied smoke, but enjoyable all the way through. Highly recommended.

Since there was a line up of the usual characters waiting for a haircut, I asked the barber if I could take the folding chair outside in the fresh air ... (so I could fire up the Joya de Nicaragua Antano 1970 Consul burning up my pocket). As I got into it, I started to care less about the haircut, and more about enjoying this fine intense flavorful cigar along with a cup of that new/old Starbucks coffee (Pike Place brew). I was not interested in leaving that behind when my name was to be called. After getting my money's worth, I'm sure when I brought the chair back in and told the barber I'd have to try again tomorrow, he was probably wondering why I was smiling and not frowning ... that I had to wait so long and still didn't get my hair cut.

"perfect cigar for a quick and pleasing smoke"
Very well made burns perfectly and packed with loads of flavors such as deep wood coffee and lots of spice.

"Best Nic Ever!"
I am normally not a fan of Nicaraguan cigars, but the Antano is one big, fat exception. It doesn't have the bitter, earthy aftertaste that I've experienced with the CAOs and other Nicaraguan smokes, but is rather sweet, spicy and powerful all at the same time. I am with the other reviewers who are praying that the great price for a box of these doesn't change.

Lit one of these bad boys up...man, it's spicy! After about 3/4 of an inch it settled down and WOW- what a taste! I had to cut it short because of family obligations, but immediately went out and got another one. If you can handle a man's cigar, this one will blow your socks off with taste. Hint: punch this one, don't cut ;)

Truly...if you've ever had expectations of a cigar being everything you'd desire it to be-as well as it claims-this is it! Rich, full, incredibly flavorful and undoubtably one of the finest cigars delivering on every level! If your somewhat of an afficianado, you'll discover that this cigar is very much like a woman-complex, rich, filled with flavor and if your not careful...it/she can be a bit much. So be prepared.
