"Great smoke but...."
3 of the five pack were rolled so tight they had almost no draw at all.I really enjoy the V line and perhaps this order was just a fluke,but even at Monster prices I just can't make myself pull the trigger again.I'll stay with the Toro and Robusto sticks.

"Great flavor, but?"
This is a great-tasting cigar, and I will try the other sizes. It has hints of cocoa and sweetness in the flavor. For those of you that don't exhale partly through the nose, you will miss out on this sensation. It has a short finish with no negative aftertaste.
Ok, Figurado's are a hard cigar to roll and, in saying that, constitutes the hard draw and uneven burn in the first half. I had to trim and relight three or four times. Once we were down to the last third it loosened up and was ok. Still had a great taste, just not a lot of smoke.
I'll try a robusto or toro size to see if they burn beter. Aesthically, it is a beautiful cigar, rich chocolatey look, small veins, just a overall good looking smoke.

"primo cigar, i do prefer other sizes though"
Excellent cigar if you can find them. The figurado, although beautiful, doesn't have the consistency of burn/flavor of some other sizes I've tried, such as the belicoso. Some reviews describe these as dry, they come boxed without cellophane. I have had a box aging in my humidor for about 6 mos and they are in impeccable shape. Smoke 'em if you've got 'em.

"Nice and Easy"
took twice as long as any cigar for the taste to kick in but when it did it was well worth the wait. best part is that it took about 2 hours to smoke. lit it at the start of a baseball game and didnt put it down till the 7th inning stretch.
