"Mouth full of metal!"
I love maduros, so I was looking forward to trying the Onyx Belicoso that I bought off the shelf. I had heard such great things, including the high ratings, so you can imagine how sorely disappointed I was to fire this cigar up and be treated to a mouth full of coppery metallic flavor. I gave the cigar a chance, and smoked it down to about half-way before giving up on it. The construction was good, and there was no problem with the draw. If anything, it drew too easily. However, the taste was awful, and the finish was even worse. I will definitely never buy this brand again. There are too many good smokes to enjoy and not enough time to give this one another chance.

"The best cigar I've smokes so far!"
This is the BEST cigar I've found yet at any price. I'd heard these were bad for there draw chracteristics, but I've smoked an entire box without any complaints. Nice even slow burn, great flavor and aroma. A pleasue to smoke, wife even likes em.

"A NEW OLD FRIEND"
As a big fan of maduro cigars, this one has become one of my favorites. I always have Rocky Patel Vintage 1990, Romeo Y Julieta Reserve, and La Gloria Cubana Serie R in the humidor, but at half the price, The Onyx reserve has earned a place of honor in the rotation. Plenty of flavor for any occasion, and as smooth as can be. I'm halfway through my second box and not a bad cigar in the bunch

"Quite possibly the best in its price range"
The Onyx Reserve is a wonderful cigar! Flavor packed but never bites. They seem to have taken care of the draw issue as the last box I smoked had no duds. And like the other reviewer said Bob in Portland, Raciere in Seattle, J Friedman in LA need to go back to smoking White Owls or Phillies Blunt. Or maybe the West Coast just got bad batches.

"A must have for all cigar lovers."
I am now over halfway finished with my second box, and I am still unable to not light one up everynight. I have given some to my closest friends and they too have ordered some. great Burn, excellent taste --until the wrapper. A must have for any cigar humidor. P.S. They are much better after being in the humidor a few days.

"One of the best smokes I have had. Great burn."
One of the best smokes I have had. Great slow burn that is consistant with each cigar. Smooth finish. Just ordered my third case.

"Great cigar but tough to smoke"
I thought this was one of the best cigars I have smoked but it had a terrible draw. I thought it was just the cigar but after reading other comments about it, it looks like it wasn't just a one time thing. Had a great aroma and ashed well but had to relight it four or five times. So a great smoke if you can keep it going.
