"Wow... Great stick!!!"
Start with a great flavors, first half was a creamy wood flavors and creamy texture with a really mild pepper flavor, and to the 2nd.. Dark choclate join to the party, no earthiness, and the pepper became stronger (not too strong).. Long finish, draw flavors are cream and wood.
Really Love that dark choclate flavor!! Very good mix.
Burn was some in the middle, i needed to touch up couple of times, but thats all..
Great smoke! You'll enjoy it.

"Great cigar for a decent price"
I purchased several 5 packs on the Monster recently along with La Floridita sampler. I let them rest for a week and wow . Started out kind of a mild cigar n then about 3rd of the way turned to a medium body cigar. Some hints of sweetness , woody and pepper . Will be buying the fuerte again. I would recommend trying a 5 pack. You will not be disappointed.

"Good cigar, not for me"
Pleasant bitterness balanced by muted sweetness, like a strong IPA, or, closer still, a stout, good construction, wrapper stayed intact, straight burn, good mouth feel, sufficient smoke, has not earned spot in humidor. Reference favorites DPG Blue, Cain Daytona, Perdomo Lot 23 CT.

I bought a La Floridita sample pack, tried the Fuerte robusto. I m not an aficionado, but these had almost no flavor. Stiff draw and low smoke. Will try the others to compare.

"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.

"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.
