"MEATY to the finish"
A rich, meaty full-flavored cigar with notes of spice and roasted nuts with a meaty finger burning to the nub finish. Good to the VERY LAST puff. 90's + rating for sure!

Certainly a good cigar. Well made, great burn, easy draw but slightly bitter. Tried one right after purchase and one aged in the humidor after two months and still a bit bitter for my taste. Gave some to a friend who couldn't thank me enough saying these were some of the best around. Different smokes for different folks I guess.

"What can I say?"
What can I say that hasn't been said on here prior? This is a great smoke. Pour a glass of Jameson Scotch blend, light up an Onyx and enjoy!

I've found the Reserve #4's to be decent. I don't believe they're all that people make them out to be. When I start one out, I'm never pleased with the taste. The longer I smoke one, the more happy I become with the taste of the smoke. They burn well and don't leave a foul smell lingering around. By the time I'm done, I always consider purchasing a whole box, if for nothing other than they're cheap and I can give them out to friends who want one of my cigars. A 2-3 dollar cigar is much easier to part with than a 10-15 dollar cigar.

"Silk Wrapper/Full Body"
This is one great cigar. Money being no object, great construction, perfect burn, draw. Only one thing, this is not a med-full bodied cigar. It's full bodied and dry which sets it appart from other full-bodied cigars. Wrapper is SILKY; the best Maduro. Not for beginners!

"Well, it really is that good."
I'll keep my comments short since this cigar has been well-reviewed and debated here and otherwise across the cigar world. That 94 in CA really set the cigar smokers on fire with either praises or blasphemy for this cigar. If you have tried this cigar, or you've only tried one or two that turned out bad, try again. I've had one in my box that took 1/3 of the cigar to get a good draw, but after that it was golden. For the others that had 0 problems, they are really marvelous. It's among the best American cigars I've had, and it's better than most cubans I've had. It is very mild for it's very oily maduro appearance. It has a very pleasant taste than any cigar lover (or anyone who is just trying some of your cigar) will love. I have had both experienced smokers and first-timers ask me to get a box of these for them. It's very good, and it's the most debated cigar on the planet thanks to a 94 rating a few years ago, so I think it is worth a try for anyone. Then you can say with some authority what your opinion is of this cigar.

"My #1 Maduro"
I'm making a transition from the more mild - medium (Macanudo/ Fuente) to the darker richer Maduro. I've tried a number. The Onyx #4 is absolutly superb. Well cured, very even burn with a long firm white ash, excellent construction throughout the smoke. But the best is the full, rich taste. Somewhat sweet yet smooth without any bitter after taste. Try this on a summer eve with a glass of fine port wine and see if you don't agree. I'm going from the 5 packs to the box.

"Still the Best"
After smoking a cigar that just did not do it for me, I lit up an Onyx. Never a disappointment. I LOVE this cigar ... always tasty ... always well constructed (OK ... I did have one bad one once) ... a full-bodied, strong yet not harsh smoke. Did I say it is also tasty?

"Best Cigar for the money, Period."
To get a cigar that tastes as good as this Medium to Full body cigar for under 3 bucks a stick? I almost feel bad.. I am not opposed to paying 6-8 bucks a stick for a good cigar, but really this one is such a great deal, once you try them you will for sure be loading the humidor with these bad boys.. Great taste, great burn, grat wrap, consistancy through and through...I have been smoking a box of these a month for 6 months now, and the same is to be said from the first cigar till now. Once a box though, you may run into one that is a real bugger to draw on. Either poke it with the draw poker, or throw it away and start over.. The are cheap, so what the heck..
