Juan Y Ramon Reviews
If these are the same cigars I purchased in the past the are one of the very best I haved smoked at 19.95 per bundle they are a tremendous steal
Best cigar ever??? No...but what do you want or expect at a dollar a stick in the bundle?! With that said... I LOVE this cigar! For the price I paid it is very good and I would recommend it. Burns good...tastes good....only complaint is that the wrapper seemed a little dry upon receiving it....but what can you really complain about at THIS price??? lol
As someone new to cigars, I got the 20 under 20 sampler to expand my tastes. The first cigar out of the bunch that I smoked was the Juan Y Ramon I believe the Maduro . Right off the bat, I must note that I didn t cut the cigar correctly, and so this led to a wobbly draw. I m also still learning how to properly light a cigar, so while this effected the burn, I don t think it effected the taste necessarily. I have 1 more Maduro, and a couple of naturals, so I ll try new things with these. When I got the cigar, it felt very firm to the squeeze. The ash held for a bit, about an inch and a half, maybe two, until finally falling to the ground. A more experienced smoker will know how to judge this, but I didn t take huge note of it though I did take note . The biggest draw back to this cigar, though, is the taste and consistency. When I first began smoking it, I noted a straight wood taste. It didn t even taste like there was any spice added. There was possibly a small amount of pepper, but I equated it with putting a tree in your mouth. Not only this, but the aftertaste tasted like nothing but plastic. As I got a little before the band, the taste morphed into the stale plastic that I had been tasting for a while previously. I wasn t even willing to get farther than the band as it was such a bad taste. I just put it out and hoped the others and other samplers I had purchased would prove better. If you are desperate for a smoke, these would be ok, but do avoid these any chance you get. If you re a beginner, like myself, I would actually say get one of these to know what a bad cigar tastes like.
I am quite surprised, this cigar burns well and has decent smell and taste. This is not a premium cohiba or rocky Patel but for the price it is well worth it. . F.Y.I it has been in my humidor for about six months.
A decent cigar for the price. I bought a few and used them to share at a party so I wouldn't have to bust out any Gurkha or Cohiba cigars. Smokes fast, mild smoke, but gives you big quick draws.
I'm no cigar expert, just an average guy who enjoys an occasional smoke. I ordered these to try something other than the White Owls from the drug store. I think they're great, smooth and mild. Very pleased.
Very disappointing. Not worth bothering with this lemon. Harsh, hard draw, not taste.
A real gem flavorful and earthy a good smoke for a picnic or communing with nature.
Where to begin??? The construction was mediocre at best. This looks like a machine rolled stick. At least 3 large veins, horrible seems, and a squishy spot at the head that made cutting difficult, and the band was glued to the wrapper. It's supposed to be a maduro, but doesn't look, smell, or taste like a maduro. Prelight flavor was bland and dusty and the draw was very light. Burn was acceptable until the ash dropped the first time, at a little over an inch, then went lopsided and tunneled. This was the only cigar I've ever seen that tunneled in 2 spots at the same time. Flavor remained bland and dusty with a strong ammonia flavor and was extremely harsh on the retrohale. This would have been about an hour smoke for me IF I could have suffered through it. I tried purging several times, but it didn't help, only made the cigar do an impression of a 4th of July sparkler (never had that happen before). After 30 minutes I couldn't take any more. The only other one from the 20 under $20 sampler that has been this bad so far was the Imperial.
