While this cigar is on the "smokeable everyday" price end of the spectrum, is definitely not to be taken lightly or a "run of the mill" cigar. Before unwrapping , you notice the stout and heavy feel of the vitola. The cigar has the feel of well packed stick! The wrapper is toothy and has satin-like oil sheen. The prelight draw invokes thoughts of roasted nuts and spice. The initial light smacks the palate with flavor and smooth white pepper. As the stick burns, with a nice ash I might add, the flavors stay consistent offering a earthy, cinnamon tinged, toasty, spice. The cigar pairs well with a dry cabernet. Added bonus - the cigar ages like a dream! Having smoked this cigar within the first week of receiving it, and again, one year later, the complexity is astounding! While the flavors softened gently, they evolved into a marriage of taste that makes holding to the side for a while a purposeful decision. In short... loved it!

"Better than I expected"
I expected an off brand, got a fantastic taste & draw. Construction good, even burn, tight ash, plenty of flavor. This was better than a lot of expensive name brands, the head even holds up well to my teeth.

"Couldn't put it down."
Started smoking cigars in Oct 2011 after retirement. This cigar had a good aroma, good flavor, great after taste and finish. I may be a newby, but this one tasted great.

It's a well constructed cigar that has a little bit of a burn issue. Flavor and aroma were ok, nothing really to write home about. I'd like to try again after sitting in the humidor for a few months.

"Tasty and excellent"
Im a big fan of Maduros and this was excellent. Slow even burn, great plumes of white smoke and incredible flavor. Have no complaints.

"Very enjoyable, want more"
Very enjoyable. I enjoy having a variety of cigars and this one moves into one of my favorites, especially for the money.

Got a couple of these in a sampler pack and was very impressed with the taste. The consistancy of the burn isn't the best, but for the price I can live with that.

The taste was okay. The smell of the smoke was okay to me but my friends who I was with at the time thought it was pretty bad smelling for a cigar. The burn on both that I smoked was not consistent and required to much effort to really enjoy. Will not purchase these again. Not my cup of tea, others may like it better though.
