"decent...need to try one more"
I just got done smoking this cigar. At first i couldnt draw much smoke so i had to cut about 1 ¼ inch off the end. After i cut it i could finally draw from the cigar. It was sweet at first then by the end it was spicy and peppery. I need to try this one more time.

"Slow to warm up to, but tasty in the end."
I've been wanting to smoke the Hyde Park for a few months now. Finally got around to ordering a 5-Pack. The cigar looks very nice with the dark, Maduro wrapper that wasn't as oily as I expected. The cigar fired right up and stayed well lit throughout. The draw was a little tough with a bit too much resistance. It was more mild (kind of blah) in the 1st third. But the flavor kept getting better as I worked into the middle and final third. The wrapper left a nice sweet taste on my lips. There were some hints of spice in the last half. Especially during a retro-hale. I tried to "loosen" up the cigar to get a better draw, but only helped a little. Overall, I'd smoke this one again. Paired it with a glass of 40 Creek Whisky.

After thirty years of cigar and pipe enjoyment I have finally found a quick smoke that is AWESOME...even burn...slow...full bodied...nice hold...I actually smoked it down to the very end. It was AWESOME. Thank MACANUDO for a great smoke...what a comeback product...

I tried one of these and was rather disappointed... Maybe it was because I'd had a Padron 3000 the week before, but I thought it was extremely bland. The burn was decent, and the draw was excellent. Plenty of smoke. The burn rate was a little fast for my taste. It started off very harsh, but it mellowed out after a half inch. It had loads of nicotine, my gosh I was buzzing only half way through the stick! That irritated me. The rice paper thin maduro wrapper came unraveled shortly after I took off the label, so I took it off to see if I could tell the difference. Low and behold, there was almost none! I laughed out loud! What a joke! In fact, it almost tasted BETTER if anything! (And I enjoy a good maduro.) This cigar is a joke in my book. Maybe a beginner who didn't know any better would like it, I don't know. Maybe I got a bad one, but I don't think I'd give it to a friend let alone recommend it.

"New favorite after-dinner smoke"
No clue what some others are saying... I'm not big on peppery kick, I just love a smooth, mild-medium bodied smoke that doesn't break the bank. The maduro gives this a nice leathery/earthy/cocoa flavor that just mellows me out. Beats out Onyx Reserve and many others. Though, if you want a dessert smoke, try the Maroma Dulce. This is not a stogie that I would recommend to a person that wants a ton of tobacco flavor... great for a newbie.

"Horrible Draw, full of sticks and stems"
Got the 5 pack in a Wise Buy. First one I loved but after that I could not get a any draw at all, it was like sucking on a coffee stir stick. Finally I decided to cut this last one open and it was full of sticks and stems. I'd expect this from a value stick but not from a Macanudo! When you spend good money on a good cigar its really frustrating to get sticks and stems!

"Nice, Nice Maduro"
I will agree, its a little tight on the burn. It makes up for in flavor and consistency. I am more of a natural smoker but this maduro i stock in my box. I enjoy more then the few other maduros i have had. Try one or five and enjoy!!

"What can I say but "Great""
These are one of my favorite cigars.
I have never had a bad one. The draw and burn are very consistant, and the taste is extreamly even all the way t the band.
The cigar stays together very nicely from start to finish
I always know I am going to have a good smoke when I grab one of these.

Aside from needing a blow-torch to light it, this is a very good cigar. If you are looking for a richer full body Mac this is your cigar.
