"Good Old-School Puro"
No curve-balls here, just an honest-to-goodness old-school-style medium strength cigar.
Not as decadently creamy as some and not as aggressively spicy as others but very well-balanced and consistent. I think this is a good benchmark for an excellent right-down-the-plate cigar with sufficient development and complexity and increasing sweetness as you get closer to the nub.
Aged for at least two years and did not have any burn issues whatsoever (maybe that has something to do with it?). The draw was tighter than ideal, although it still did the job without undue effort. Uniform burn all the way down that required only one relight about 3/4 into it.

Appearance and construction was good, however, it canoed and burned fast. It generated a good amount of smoke, good pepper taste and strong Will try again.

"Great Taste - but canoes"
Great taste; it's spicy like the cubans. The closest to a cuban cigar ever. The burn is bad, canoes or burns on one side. Burns out easy, but a great flavor cigar like this one, you just can't stop dragging it.

This was a pretty good cigar, which I didn't really expect. I tend to like spicy cigars, but I find most to be overbearing, but this cigar was not the case. It had a full spicy sweet flavor, but mild strength. I recommend it for cigar smokers who like some spice and sweetness, but no bite and harshness.

This is an excellant cigar. Many people have been surprised to find out that 1. it is not Cuban, and 2. it is so inexpensive. The price makes this easily and every day cigar, but the taste would require me to say to save it for special occassions.
