"More than I expected!"
I was pleasantly surprised right from the light. Notes of leather and pepper. A full bodied smoke. Not cigar of the year but this one has been under rated.

Have to admit, I wasn't expecting what I got when I ordered these. Bought 'em due to price, and I was really pleased. Good appearance and construction, good draw. Nice earthy, slightly peppery flavor. Better than some others for which I've paid 2X or 3X more. You just never know sometimes.

"A Solid Value"
For the money, these are great cigars. I'm not a big fan of Oscuro wrappers,but other than that I really like this cigar. This is a med-full smoke with bitter chocolate and is very rich tasting. For a bit over a dollar a stick, this is one of the better bargain cigars out there.

"Spotty, But Good"
Nesticos Robusto 5 Pack
These are not bad cigars, and a good value. They are, however, not very consistent. Some are rolled tight and some loose. If you don't mind either way, you should be good, as they are all smokable. There's a nice hint of spice, but not too strong. Flavor profile changes very little. Its not a bad smoke, just maybe need better quality control-- but what can you expect for the price.

What a pleasant surprise, I've been thru two 5 pacs so far and I have nothing to complain about, I will be adding these to my every day humidor. I think I have to smoke one of the larger size ones like a toro,Dbl corona or pyramide.

Got these in a sampler pack. Good cigar, the first was a little tightly rolled so the draw was a little hard. Good flavor, definitely spice especially toward the end. For the price these are a keeper.

"Great Bang for the Buck"
The draw is a little tight on the ones I've smoked, but none-the-less this is a great cigar for the money. Rich tobacco flavor. Good everyday smoke!

"If You Like Garcia...."
Nesticos Test Flight
I bought these on the sheer strength of the words: "Garcia-like" and the price.
I love a full bodied, full flavored spicy cigar. And they got this baby right. It MUST be aged in your humidor for at least a month or longer. But if you want a treat, smoke one as soon as you get them. It tells the future of the cigar. These sticks pack a wallop of spice, earthiness, leather, raisin, and a sledge hammer.
I must force myself, at the half way point of smoking this stick of dynamite, that I must slow down or its spinsville for me. If I slow down, then I can thumb suck it to the nub.
A great stick!

Uneven burn on each smoke, aroma was ok.

"The best tasting cigar I've had in years!"
These are one of the best tasting cigars I've had in years! Kind of like a Gran Habano #5 (which I love) but a bit less sharp - and they burn WAY better (well, most things DO). Even OTT they are finger burnin' good. Hopefully, comments about first run vs. later runs of this factory being not quite the same will turn out to be 'not so'. I sure hope that's the case - as I'd like to see these available and as good as they are now for a long time to come. Recommended fer sure.
