La Vieja Habana Brazilian Maduro Rothchild Luxo
A well-made cigar at an honest price. La Vieja Habana cigars were the first Drew Estate cigars, debuting in 1994. Handmade with a well-balanced Cuban Sandwich blend of long & short Nicaraguan filler tobaccos, each La Vieja Habana Brazilian Maduro Rothchild Luxo is rolled in a dark, Brazilian Maduro wrapper. These cigars draw easily with a rich, smooth, earthy flavor, producing clouds of thick blue smoke and a sweet, inviting aroma. Try this great value cigar, and taste why La Vieja Habana is the lead horse in the Drew Estate stable.
I got two of these as part of a sampler. They don't really have that much flavor, except a vague tobacco taste. The filler burns faster than the wrapper, which is to be expected. The draw on both was very tight and I really had to suck on it to get any smoke. Overall, it's an okay cigar if you're just looking for something to smoke. But I like to enjoy my cigars and all the complex flavors so I won't be coming back.
This cigar is well crafted, but the flavor is just a tad flat. it's bold to be sure, but it just doesn't have that "Bang" that some people crave. I liked it, & i'll probably buy a box sometime in the future.
Good flavor, not overpowering, not harsh. The guts burn just a little too fast for the slow burning wrapper. Gets a little uneven but catches up. Over all, a pleasant smoke. Some have said it's a mouth burner, and I could see that if you were trying to suck it down like a Lucky Strike. Slow down and enjoy one then try and find a better one for the price. Good luck!
Got this as part of a sampler and wasn't expecting the quality and amazing taste/smell from an economy class flight pack. Head and foot above the rest that came in the sampler, this was a seriously tasty, smooth, and fragrant ceegar. It did burn a bit funky, and draws were a little weak at times, but the flavor was fantastic. I'm curious to see how consistent these can be in a box, but from the taste I got, its just another reason (apparently the very first one) that Drew Estates and their offshoot brands are huge among newer smokers such as myself.
