Took a shot with these. Very disapointed. Price withstanding, and I understand you get what you paid for. These are not good cigars. Poorly made. The draw is very bad. Need a vacum to even try to get a whiff. I will say, not all of the bundle were like that, just most of them. No flavors to speak of and they burn very poorly. Lots of canoeing. Will not buy them again.

"Not So Good"
I smoked about 5 of these and decided to put them away. Very harsh and ashy, the draw is very hard and the wrappers arent constructed very well (they came off when I transferred them into my humidor). Low cost-you get what you pay for

"Inconsistent.. Some good..More not so good"
Bought a bundle and the first one I smoked was good.. ash was almost 2" long and it burnt even. The next one I smoked burn uneven and seemed to have hard spots..burnt on one side.. Unfortunatley, I'm on the 8th one and most have burnt in spurts on one side or another. On taking the last one apart (Couldn't resist) I discovered up to almost twig sized (1/8") stems in the filler.

"Spend the afternoon..."
I bought a bundle of these last summer, but haven't had one for about 7 months since. When I had one this weekend, I was not only surprised at how steady and smooth it smoked, but also how LONG it took to finish. Almost an hour and 45 minutes, and I could have gone awhile longer without too much effort. I NEVER had to re-light either. Definitely worth the $$$.

"Excellent cigar for the money"
Fine cigar for the money. Burns unevenly from cigar to cigar, but good, mild taste.

Delicious taste, good construction and burn. Definately my new smoke a day cigar. Note to Noobs: Cigars shipped in the mail need to set awhile in your humidor prior to smoking. Let them rest a week and then smoke - Then give a review.

"Need a Draw Poker !"
The Gigante is a beautiful, well constructed and incredibly smooth smoke, one of the best tasting cigars I've found - but if you don't have a draw poker you may throw them away before you get hooked on them. The draw is terrible more often than not, next time I'll try the Belicoso. This brand should definitely be in your humidor - I haven't found this smooth taste for the price in any other cigar. This is my new everyday cigar.
