"One of the best, consistent smokes!"
Very tasty full flavored cigar. The wrapper is a deep chocolate, very good. Smokes beautifully. I prefer the Wavell over the Glorias extra.

"Not a favorite, by any means"
I bought a box of these hummers thinking they'd have to be similar to some excellent full-size La Glorias. Except for the nice dark wrapper, they weren't. My box was harsh, lacked any subtlety in it's aromas, tasted about like a machine-made Topper Grande Corona. On the plus side, they seemed to be pretty uniformly made, reasonably tight while still drawing and burning well, and to have a substantial nicotine content. Overall, though, what a disappointment. To me, this box contained what were roughly "mowing-the-lawn" cigars. And I've bought much tastier, more pleasingly aromatic cigars at my local drug store.

"Strong, but lighter than it looks; smooth draw"
This cigar lived up to my exectations; it's full-
bodied but not as strong as the almost black
wrapper makes it look. I use it for an "in-betweener", a sort of daily/utility smoke, not my
preferred Henry Clay. It very nicely fills up my
one-hour commute to work, and maybe a second one,
or my preferred, for the trip home. Having a
good, even burn from solid construction, my only
complaint is that it tends to get very strong on
the re-light, and sometimes at the last inch-and-
a-half or so even on first smoke. That's to be
expected with most cigars though, especially full-
bodied ones; but this one steps it up a little
more than most. Also, the cut tip doesn't chew
all that well . . . Famous' special of $50 a box
of 25, which with S&H came out to about $2.18 a
stick, was a bargain. Even though I prefer
medium-to-full-bodied smokes, I'm wondering how
the natural version of this one would be? It's a

"My New Everyday Cigar"
I was very pleased with the Wavell Maduro -- sweet, but not cloying, taste, and a rich, leathery smoke. Two thumbs up, well worth the price.

"Best for Less"
This cigar ranks tops in the best for less. For the price there is no better choice.

"Very bland. Big disappointment."
Bought a box last year that came from Miami; what an outstading smoke. The box i just received came from the Domenican; what a bland cigar; absolutely tasteless.

"One Hell of a Cigar"
What a great cigar.
And for the price (at Famous) they can't be beat.
Great after dinner cigar.
I like to smoke it with a good single malt scotch.

The Maduro Wavell made in Florida is one of the
