"Extraordinarily Good Cigar"
I find this to be an extremely excellent cigar. It has a slight sweetness to it that I really enjoy yet it maintains a solid, rich tobacco taste throughout. I think it has a slight cocoa taste to it as well. I have smoked the belicoso and churchill in both the natural and maduro and found all to be near perfect. I prefer the natural churchill, but the maduro churchill was a very close second (for my tastes). The burn and draw on all four vitolas were perfect and each had a very long finish (I always burn my fingers smoking these). This is one of those cigars that, when forced to put it out, you say to yourself (and everyone else in the room) "damn, that was a fine cigar".

"STARTS OUT COOL AND MILD, EMPHASIS ON COOL"
I HAVE NOT SMOKED A CIGAR THAT STARTS AS COOL AND FLAVORFUL AS THIS CURCHILLL NATURAL. AN ABSOLUTE 10 ON CONSTRUCTION AND DRAW AND IT STAYED THAT WAY PRETTY MUCH THE REST OF THE WAY. FIRST HALF MILD AND FLAVORFUL, SECOND HALF MEDIUM AND FLAVORFUL. I WONDER HOW THE SNOBS AT C. AFFICIANADO MAG.RATED THIS ONE. MY RATING IS A 93! THANKS FOR THE AFFORDABLE PRICE ON THIS 5 PACK F.S.S. YOU GUYS ROCK

I had one of these today. It was excellent - mild to medium, smooth, good flavor, voluminous smoke. The wrapper started to fragment on the last inch and a half, but ... big deal ... by then I had enjoyed 5 1/2 inches of one fine cigar (I still kept relighting to the last bit). One of the best. I can't wait for a good deal on the maduros.

I must say - I raced to a cigar shop which I knew had just received a few boxes of these. Picked up three after reading so many positive reviews of the brand and the "special" Lot 23.I lit one up after a pretty heavy Italian dinner. Wow. Smelled terrible, tasted like ammonia, and did not burn well until the last half. I'll try another, but the next will hopefully add up to all the positive hype.

"Flawless from beginning"
Absolutely a wonderful smoke. Won a box on auction here and first one I smoked was stunning. Awesome all around. Smooth even burn, ash hit an inch in no time and I never had to relight it. Not even close. The backyard got dark on me before I ran out and had to call it a night right about the time it hit the label (I rarely make it to the label on cigars anymore). I am very impressed a cigar of this quality can be bought at this price, and plan to always have some on hand from now on.

"excellent flavor and aroma, consistent burn"
greaat cigar for the price, criollo filler makes the difference.
