Well I am no expert, but I am experimenting more and more with cigars. This one is a beauty, the pre-light smell was delicious, nutty and almost chocolate. I wanted to bite it. It primarily smoked well, except needed a little work near the half point. Lots of flavours, woody, earthy, and a sweetness like cherry (I think). I will say that it was quite strong for a rookie like me and I had quite a buzz.

LFD has produced a real gem with this one. This cigar has everything a DL700 has to offer but in a smoke that last about 20 minuets. A must try for the LFD fans!

"High maintenance but GREAT flavor!"
The flavor was real nice with some black cherry flavor. The draw back was that the cigar needed a lot of maintenance... it needed several touch-ups and relights.

"Excellent cigar for those who are short on time."
A client of mine gave me a box of these to enjoy and what a gift. These are great cigars if you don't have too much time to spend on enjoying a full sized cigar.
Although this cigar is stronger then I'm used to, it's still very nice. Full bodied with lots of dark spice and flavor. Highly recommend it.

Great smoke! I enjoyed this little puppy during Superbowl 2009 Halftime. Just the right size for a quick short little smoke...smooth, creamy and very flavorful. Would have been much better on a warmer night but that's not the cigar maker's fault. I recommend this puro to anyone looking for a short fast smoke (20-30 min) but refuses to compromise on quality or flavor.

This little cigar blew my socks off!! I usually smoke the Padron Aniversary 1926 line. I was very skeptical, but became a believer when my brother Edward offered me one. Definitely will be an addition to my humidor (if I can get a hold of some).

"My favorite small maduro"
This is my favorite small maduro cigar; the reason is taste and aroma.
The taste and the light aroma are full but not overpowering, with hints of black cherry.
The taste is complex with a fine, mellow aftertaste.
This is not a full-bodied nor a spicey cigar, try a Honduran brand for that.
The prelight aroma is earthy, wonderful.
The construction is consistent and firm.
The volume of smoke is abundant for such a small cigar.
The draw is easy.
The shape is novel.
In short, it is my favorite maduro shorty.

Simply calling this a cigar is like calling espresso coffee. The first one I smoked I got in the town where Sacto. King Ron "Misdemeanor" Artest lives and gets arrested in (Loomis). When I was selecting a stick for "when I was short on time" the owner of the store said I'd be surprised how long it would last. That's because this double ligero is practically dripping in oil. I looked at it in wonder for a couple of months, then took it to a friend's shop when we had a smoke fest. I was totally unprepared for the big flavor in this small cigar. It was so good I grabbed an alligator clip from one of his wood projects to smoke it all the way down to practically nothing. To call it a "finger burner" is a gross understatement. These aren't for the timid. I just wish Rush Limbaugh woulda kept his mouth shut about these so they weren't so hard to get. Back then I had to call the place up in Loomis to grab the last 5 he had. I hope Famous gets more back in stock soon. They're a must-try if you like a flavorful cigar that has a good kick!

"Great little cigar"
I like this cigar I prefer the el Jocko which is an unusual shaped cigar that I smoked to the very last nub.
