"Escogidos: Spanish for poorly built %26 harsh"
Recieved the maduro version of this robusto in the Famous Mild Z Sampler. True disappointment. Started out nicely with some mello peppery hints and regressed from there. The cigar then proceeded to burn unevenly and started tunneling - resulting in a hard draw to keep it lit. Absent the taste of the flavorful wrapper, the cigar descended into an overworked experience of harsh endurance.

"A quality bargain smoke"
WOW! This is a superb cigar. Great looks and const., this cigar burns well. The draw is snug but puts out lots of smoke. Spice, woodiness, vanilla and a sweet, almost fruity aspect that makes this a pretty complex smoke. And the price? For $50.00, this is a no-brainer of a price.
