"Mildly flavored to perfection"
I personally enjoyed this cigar. The burn was razor sharp and the draw was perfect. I was especially surprised at that since it is such a long smoke. There are a variety of flavors within the cigar. You can't really taste all of it at once and each puff will bring you a brand new taste from time to time. What stood out was the pepper. It is also earthy, leathery, and sweet in some parts. I enjoyed how smooth the smoke was and how creamy the cigar was. Not worth the price to me though, I'd probably grab a nice Opus X over one of these. Still a very good smoke if you like something milder with a lot of flavors!

"Get a 1926 80 or Family Reserve 45 instead"
I recently picked up 1 of these and also a Series A maduro. Both were absolute rubbish. Terrible construction and quality control issues such as a large rip in the wrapper that was partially 'patched' by the roller. Worst of all both cigars were disgustingly bitter. Tasted like they had spent a week or two in the trunk of a car in a Las Vegas parking lot in July. Trust the low rating and avoid. Try the 1926 80 or the Family Reserve 45 which are similar in price and both incredible sticks.
