I received this cigar as a freebie in a recent order. The burn was good and the cigar had a good draw. The first inch or so was very smooth. As I was smoking, I pulled the band off, and it was down hill from there. The cigar pretty much fell apart with the band removed. Up until this it was pretty good. This is not a cigar. This is not a cigar I would purchase.

"Good inexpensive Med Nicaraguan"
It was free, but mine was a great smoke. I would buy again as the Perdomo Cuban line is good line. Not as good as the Parejo but good never the less.

"Mixed Bag, not so good."
I got one of these as a promo item. I must say that the first inch was very nice, it had some monte no4 flavours in it, a nice draw and a reasonable burn. however I then hit thick veins and it became very bitter, it is a mild smoke, not medium. would I buy them, probably not, Alec Bradley spirit of cuba are much better if this is the flavour profile you are after, however i have a voucher, so i will get some, for the people that visit that i don't like so much.

"Nothing for nothing"
This stick was a freebie throw-in with a recent order. You get what you pay for. I paid nothing and received a cigar with nothing to offer. Like Bill H in North Carolina this stick simply fell apart. Impossible for me to rate it above a seven.

Excellent construction and very even burn. Flavors are mild, but consistent, showing some pepper in the beginning. Smoked well all the way to the nub when the nicotine got more intense. Reminded me of an entry-level Romeo y Julieta.

I was surprised some of the reviews were not good. I got this is a bundle of Perdomo v. Oliva and loved it. I will buy a box

"One of the better cigar's I've smoked!"
I read some poor reviews so I thought I needed to offset them with a good one. I really enjoyed this smoke. The flavor was to my liking (I not too earthy) and the burn was even, and smooth. Lots lots of thick smoke was produced from each puff. I could feel the strength of the cigar but it wasn't too strong.

Wow. The first inch of this robusto was exquisite with tons of creamy smoke and nice flavors. Got two of these sticks in a Perdomo sampler and my first impression is horrendous! After the first ten minutes the cigar turned bitter with little flavor other than that of cheap fillers. I battled the flaky wrapper that keeps trying to peel at the nub fo half the smoke before giving up on it and letting the thing go out. I will age the other stick I still have and hope for a better experience. If the whole cigar had been as good as its brief beginnings it might have been worth getting a few more. But at this price, I'll probably leave these ones for someone else to enjoy and get a premium I know I'll enjoy.
