Fantastic smoke draws great, Great taste burns good and slow, what a great way to kill some time. I will purchase more.

Got this as part of the "Best of Maduros" sampler. Did not have problems with the draw as others seemed to have. Thick, creamy smoke with flavors I thoroughly enjoyed.

""I Once French Kissed a Girl...""
This cigar reminded me of an old High School girl friend. We once french kissed so long and so hard that when I went home my jaw hurt. Out of the pack they were beautiful. Like my girl friend they were very well "constructed." I ordered a five pack of these babies and the draw was so tight on each one that I quit half way because my jaw was tire of sucking and, just like the girlfriend, things never got any better.

Well, not for me. Loose draw, taste is rather flat in my opinion and burned pretty hot.

"Very good smoke, if you can get it to."
I remember this cigar was exceptionally dark. It was dark enough for me to ponder why it's referred to as a "dark natural" when it was nearly black. I even labeled it in my ratings table as "oscuro."
Anyway, this cigar was great! It was a VERY cool burner, and was also quite robust. This is a problem for the average smoker. To keep it lit you have to puff at more than once a minute, but if you do that for too long, you may get lightheaded.
The smoke smelled leathery, but the taste was full of fruity and nutty sweet flavors, brilliant when "retrohaled."
It burned evenly, for as much that did burn (I also had issues keeping it lit, I put it down half way because it died out). The ash was a solid dense "zebra" ash. Very creamy smoke that just poured out of your mouth.
I recommend to all.

"Better than the reviews"
I bought a five pack of these because I have heard that the Olor is a pretty good cigar, I didn't read any of the reviews until after I bought them and was waiting for them to arrive, after reading the reviews I was not looking forward to getting my order but I had to try them once they got here since I spent the money on them, First off I have to say they are a nice looking cigar, they are put together well, I figured if they look this good they must not be that bad, but looks can be deceiving, lucky for me though this was not the case with these cigars, they had a good taste to them when first lit and I was pleasantly surprised that they had a good draw to them as well.
So now I am trying to figure out if these are the same cigar that all the bad reviews were written about?? Could the bad reviews be because of an old bad batch of them or what, they couldn't be the same cigars that I just smoked because the ones I smoked burned well and had a pretty good taste to them along with having a really good draw to them. They stayed together well and I had no difficulties at all from them.
It makes you wonder how some can give a review that is so much different than the one I am giving right now if they smoked the same cigar as I just did.
My only conclusion is that they must have gotten a hold of a bad batch of them, how else could I have so much of a different view on them then so many others that tried them.
I know my taste is not that much different than others to be that much off of my opinion of them.
Lets see what the next guy has to say about the Olor Fuerte Robusto. In my opinion they are a good cigar and I would give them about a 7.43 out of 10.

"i expected more"
i let these set for 2 months before i tried them. reviews were too good to be true. for the price and hype, the flavor was mediocre, shallow and one dimensional. the famous smokes house brands have more depth and flavor for a lot less price.

Real smooth. Good burn, great draw. I'll definitely buy more.

"unremarkable "third of a gopher" cigar"
Nice construction and draw, yet despite the bold, dark wrapper, the flavors only yield a vanilla scoop in a paper cone. Like a "third of a gopher", this cigar will only "rouse your hunger without beddin' her back down". (Everett McGill "O'Brother Where Art Thou")

"Great morning cigar to pair with coffee!!"
A smooth and complex smoke that makes a cup of coffee taste like a chocolate bar. Loads of coffee and cocoa in this smoke. The cigar is not all that dynamic but the pairing with coffee is marvelous. A great starter smoke with a morning cup of coffee. Mild-medium smoke that really starts your day.
