"these sticks are damn good!"
I was'nt too sure about these more inexpensive smokes since I'm really tired of spending moocho coinage for the big name cigars only to be left in a tasteless ploom of smoke.These were the first bundle I've ever bought and these are really good! Flavor,construction,burn all at a nice price point!I'll make sure the humi is locked when my buddys come over!

Poor cigar. Not enough filler to stay lit. Burns unevenly.

Some are very good but many burn poorly. Runners and hot spots were common.

"Surprising inexpensive cigar"
An inexpensive surprise, but only after a few months in my humidor. Easy drawing and very consistent. Never lost their shape or unwrapped from my constant chomping on the golf course. Taste after curing is medium to full without being harsh (like when new). They look rough, but do not smoke rough at all. Burn has been an issue for a few but not all, but that may be more me and my humidor habits than the cigar.

"Cheap average cigars"
Cheap cigars, good for starters to get their smoke on. Taste is bearable but makes you want to spit quite a bit which is not pretty. They tend to canoe and go out about half way. An average cigar smoke at best.

"Did not burn evenly"
These were good except for the burn. I thought maybe I hot boxed it, but it kept happening on every one I smoked.

"Great cigar for the money"
I have smoked through nearly the entire bundle of these maduros and have enjoyed every one immensely. They have all had a very consistent, even burn, the draw is perfect and they taste great. For about $1.50/stick, this is the best value I've encountered in a cigar after having tried countless brands over the years.

"Decent Smoke, Slow Burn"
Picked these up for the "what a bargain" price and was not dissatisfied. A good cigar taste but a really slow burn. Be ready to spend a good hour or so with this belicoso with one or two re-lights on the last 2 inches.

I bought some bundles during a great sale at Famous. Mild maduro that is not anything to be excited about. The burn is the worst of any cigar I have ever had. After two bundles, I have yet to find one single cigar that has not burn anywhere close to even. Canoing, tunneling, you name it, these things are continually needing a touch up. I have tried all the tricks to correct this with no luck. I have had other cigars from Nestor Plasencia that tend to have the same problem. I smoke cigars for enjoyment, whether you like the flavor or not, there is no enjoyment in trying to correct the burn of these sticks. Try something else.

Fairly nice construction, the one I just smoked had a soft spot that caused a slight run which did correct itself. Good, not great, flavor. Light pepper, hints of woodiness and coffee. No bad aftertaste. Decent value.
