"Will try again..."
...even though the burn needed correcting a few times...no biggie. Aged in humidor for about 2 months before sampling. Good amount of smoke, easy draw, nice taste...and no lingering aftertaste.

"great mellow smoke"
This baby was great. It last longer than I would have expected... I had maby20 puffs on the first 1 inch into this smoke. It was really mellow with light hints of spice. The aroma smelled peppery and the wrap made it look sexy. Id say its taste was a little too mellow for my idea of a perfect smoke but is still buy it again.

1.burn: not so good you need to relight it 6 to 7 times to enjoy it.
total: regular not a good cigar.

"Nice but Nasty"
Everything about this stick is great - construction, burn, draw, etc.,until you come to the taste. There is something very bitter in the taste, like they rolled a couple horse hairs up in it

"Changes In Latitudes.."
I reviewed these as not so great but I took a bunch of them down to the Keys last week and they came alive in the high humidity. Loved them down there even over the Oliva Sampler #4 I had there too.

Nothing favorable considering the money spent. Not my smoke at half the price. I would rather add a little cash and get something of quality. I tried a box of these and always let down.

"Not for me"
I had a few as part of a sampler, and didn't like it when I tried it about a year ago. Had another with a year's rest, and it was the same, newspaperish taste with a very tight draw. I feel bad tossing cigars, but did not have a problem tossing this one after geting more than halfway through. Will not be buying these any more.

I really enjoy La Floridita normally and maybe this one is one for the record books on a true screw up, but I had three plugs in this gar...spent most of the time relighting after getting rid of plugs...then the taste wasn't what I have come to expect from La Floridita. I think I might give the fuerte the benefit of the doubt by trying one more, but the gar overall was such a big A disappointment! The only thing consistent about this cigar was the inconsistency!

Is not bad for the price but I was expecting a little more in flavor, since those have been wrapped in a Brazilian "da mata" could be better.

I'm just about six months in to the cigar world, I received this cigar in a sampler pack and couldn't wait to smoke the other one I received with it. Thought i already had a favorite smoke until I sampled this one. Great cigar regardless of the price. I have sampled 20.00 cigars that didn't taste or burn this well.
