Mi Barrio El Puro
7 1/2 x 52 - Dark Natural - Box of 20
Mi Barrio cigars are expertly handcrafted with a core of perfectly-balanced Nicaraguan Esteli & Jalapa tobaccos bunched and rolled in oily, triple-capped Nicaraguan Habano wrappers. Aged for one full year before packaging, the smoke is full-bodied with a leathery-nutty base enhanced by earthy-woody flavors and sweet tobacco notes on a clean, semi-spicy finish. Available at exclusively low prices, if you love Cuban-style flavor and aroma, this masterpiece of a cigar is not to be missed!
I had read several reviews so I thought I would try a box of the El Puro. From the first cigar to the last the taste was as advertised, but the burn was not even or consistant and nearly every cigar burned deep on one side. I have been smoking high quality cigars for nearly fifty years so this is not my first experience. Great taste but way to much trouble ... will not buy another box.
I have wanted to try these for quite a while after hearing the hype. When I finally caught a box on sale I ordered. I let them rest for a few weeks and upon trying my first one I was blown away. This stick lives up to the hype. It is a nice smooth medium bodied cigar that burns great. This cigar for the price can hold its own to many cigars three times the price. I highly recommend giving this one a try.
If you only used one word to describe this cigar it would be smooth. I found myself halfway into the cigar before I realized it because it was so good. The creamy profile of the cigar was a dream. The cigar was medium and peaked into M/F at the end. The cigar did add some spice at the end and remained cool for me to smoke it all the way to the nub. Since I review cigars I try not to smoke the same one twice since I can only review it once. This is not the case here. Two days later I found myself craving this cigar and I smoked another.
This is one of my 3 or 4 favorite cigars of all time. Has the complexity of the brown label Tats, and (especially the el Puro) is great value for the money. all 5 or so boxes I have gotten from Famous have been consistently great! At the price they are at now (especially with the free gift) make this a no-brainer!
