This is a great cigar. I used to smoke cain f's but this stick is taster & thicker. For real cigar smoker's.

"A nice dirty taste."
Medium-Full in strength I would say, the flavor is nice and "of the soil" . Not as flavorful or punchy as a Fam. Nic 3000, but it didn't fall apart like some of the 3000s do! Good aroma. A bit of a hard draw for a while. Ended well. Too thick.

"One of my favorites"
What an awesome smoke. This is my favorite size of the line. For a point of reference, I smoke Camacho Triple Maduros, Camacho Selects, AB Maxx, CAO Sopranos, Torano Virtuosos and Exudus 1959 Silvers. The flavor is full and complex, and the body is all there. The build and appearance are flawless. Bravo!

"Not For Whimps!"
If you think you've graduated to "big boy" cigars this stick is your final exam. Take the advice of other reviewers and put something in your stomach before firing up. I consider myself an experienced smoker and keep mainly med-full to full bodied cigars in my stock of 300-400, of which I enjoy 2-3 a day. The Gran Consul is a superbly strong, well made, and flavorful cigar and has earned permanent placement in my humidors.

The increased width of this size allows for more filler and results in an incredible smoking experience. While strong in body, the flavor is exceptional.

This is the only cigar to ever make me physically sick. While it didn't quite make me vomit, I was nauseated and visibly shakey. I only smoked 2/3 or so of the cigar, which didn't seem to be so rough until 5 or 10 minutes after I put the cigar out. HOWEVER, it is a very beautiful, delicious, well-constructed cigar. I was ready to order a box of them until it kicked my butt. Be prepared for some heavy nicotine effects, but it is almost worth it for this fabulous cigar. Just take it easy and don't rush this one...

"Great Look nice taste"
Picked one up at a local shop at the suggestion of the owner. Enjoyed the taste and strength. personally it did not seem real strong but that is very personal. Only thing was it drew hard and for a 60 ring gauge I didn't enjoy that. I'll buy others to give them an honest try. I think you'll enjoy the flavor and aroma!

"A True Jewel of Nicaragua!!"
Now I know why this was Somoza's favorite brand. When these arrived the odor from the cigars was AWESOME!! I could not wait to get my hands on one, and yes they are not for the faint at heart, these require previous experience to enjoy them properly. A must have for all!!
