"Strong but humidified correctly= great!"
I ordered a box and humidified them most of the time at 72. After a few of these I wasn't crazy about them but when they were humidified consistently well at 72-73% for a few months, I started to develop a taste for these and the flavor was unbelievable. They turned out to be one of the best cigars on my list. Very strong but delicious.

I was curious about this cigar after seeing it promoted in Famous Cigar's catalog, and I surfed some other sites for reviews, hoping to find a diamond in the rough for the price. This cigar has a hard draw, harsh flavor and uneven burn. For the money buy the Rocky Patel Cuban Blend maduro instead.

"Look better than they taste"
These are ok, but that's it. I was a little disappointed in the taste of these cigars. Probably will opt for other choices at this point.

These sticks possess all of the richness and sweet flavor of a Maduro balanced with the mildness of a Connecticut. Truly a great cigar at a very reasonable price. I recomend a low humidity setting of 60-65 percent to avoid bitterness.

"A mystery to me ..."
It is truly a mystery to me how these cigars could be rated only one point lower than a Padron 3000.
After going through a box of these, I can't think of a single reason to ever buy any more. The taste is lousy, the burn and draw inconsistent .. It was very common to have them canoe - badly.
I'll stick with the Regular or Limited Edition La Floriditas ... they're worth the money, but these, so-called "fuerte" ( I say 'harsh' would be a better descrition) just aren't up to the task.

I was mysteriously drawn to these without ever reading a review or tasting one. I won them on auction. I tasted a stick immediately upon receipt and was knocked out by the intensity of warmth and earthiness. I then put them to sleep for 3-4 weeks and they are now just beautiful cigars. They are constructed perfectly. The burn is perfect. No canoes. The taste starts out with a little kick of spice and then the myriad of flavors coat your taste buds. I stick with the Churchill because it's a good 90 minute experience. If you're looking for a full body, full flavored experience, buy these...baby them..and smoke 'em up and then have buyer's remorse that you didn't buy 2 boxes instead of one.
