This is one of my favorite smokes! Woody at the start moving to dark coffee in the final 1/3. Nicely contructed and burned evenly with an appealing appearance. Worth a try but a box is a must!

I am on my 3rd box of these, but unlike others everyone in the box is very hard to draw and therefore they taste different to other boxes I had before.
I guess this is my last box of ONYX for me.

"Bad draw and burn, Great taste...."
I thought I would try these and like the other reviewers this cigar has a very bad draw and gets impossible after lit. If that is not bad enough it started to burn down the middle of the roll and became hot at the mouth even with only 1" burned off the end. However the wrapper burn looks fine and uniform. You can see the small burn down the middle by looking at the end (about the diameter of a small soda straw). I have never seen a cigar do this before.

I have never wrote a review on anything, but these I think are quite possibly the best smoke I have had to date. They burn slow and steady, have not had one run on me yet. Gorgeous to look at, rock solid construction, and the smoke is so creamy delicious. The ash even survived a fall missing the ash tray! I was sitting down and it hit the carpet, kept its shape and everything, just a little cylinder on the floor! Wow, just wow. $14/5 pack? Are you joking?! My search is over.

"Great Affordable Smoke!"
This cigar is a very mild smoke, it does not produce a lot of smoke either. However, I highly recommend this cigar. It starts off a little peppery, but very quickly smooths out to a creamy smooth delicious flavor, very enjoyable smoke.... It also lasts a long time, some where around 1 hr and 15 minutes at least, which for how small it is, is very impressive. Also it did not get harsh until less than 1.5" left of the cigar, but as long as you take puffs less often it smooths out...HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

I got ten of these for my birthday two years ago, these were my very first cigars. Reading the other reviews, I think I got lucky. My cigars were well but together, had an even burn. and had quite a flavor. The draw was alittle hard, but the smoke was very think and spicy.

Of all brands smoked rates 1st. in my books.

"Wonderful flavor but tight draw."
Love the flavor of this cigar. Bought a five pack, then bought a box. However, the draw so far on most of them has been too tight. I have to use the old hanger remedy to loosen up the draw. Maybe the other shapes are better. But even with all that fuss, those spicy Peruvian, Cuban-seed Ligero tobaccos are very unique and wonderful.
