"An interesting one!"
The pre-light scent was of a dark cocoa scent, mixed with other indistinguishable flavors.
It lit easily, but the burn was pretty uneven all the way through. It didn't burn too hot or too cool though, which is nice.
The flavor was interesting. Honestly, it's hard for me to really pinpoint a characteristic flavor, but that's not a bad thing necessarily. Both the aroma and flavor had so many various flavors that I couldn't really specify. I liked every inch, but it was not my favorite stick ever smoked.
It did have lots of creamy smoke, and was more full-bodied than I expected from a mild smoke.
If I could give it one flavor, I would say a VERY dark cocoa taste, but overall, don't make that your basis.
Try it! It's interesting.

"I'm no expert, but this one is great."
Even burn, stayed lit to the end, great taste, nice aroma.
I bought the 10 pack sampler to take on a cruise. Big mistake, should have taken a box. What a great smoke. Shared one with a new friend and he agreed. I can?t wait to get home and reorder.

"Not a health food store cigar and neither a Cuban"
A.k.a. Barry Stats...the creator of acigarsmoker.com, is in my opinion a true cigar aficionado!
I have found his reviews of many cigars to be spot on correct...he has the ability to put flavors into words.
Except on this particular cigar, I'm sorry to say Barry...but your review of this cigar was doomed before it even started.
You are as prejudice to this brand of cigar as is the KKK to our current president :-)
I feel you just don't like the idea of organic period, and by not even giving it a low rating is evidence of that.
Now...on the other hand,
we have a guy by the name of
Kent Surratt, I read his review of this cigar on cigar adviser, he claims that this cigar closely resembles the "Cuban Cohiba Robusto" in its heyday!
Although I do strongly agree with Kent assessment that the Cuban Cohiba Robusto is no longer the cigar it once was, I respectfully disagree that this cigar could be compared with that cigar in anyway.
So...we have one reviewer who pretty much hates it, and another who compares it to a Cuban legend!
Well...like they say there is three sides to every story...here's the real side :-)
first off...the presentation of this cigar is a class act.
The construction....I would say, top-notch, a few veins, but nothing serious, well packed and no soft spots, and the cap is very neatly done.
The pre-light...well first off, the cigar really captures and holds the characteristics of the Cedar sleeve, when I took a whiff of the foot, it had a wonderful scent of fresh and clean tobacco, a little sweet, and of course Cedar.
Smoking the first half was great!
As for flavor...again, a very fresh and clean tobacco and a little nutty with a slightly sweet finish.
This cigar is a very smooth and mild one!
If you're looking for complex flavors, this is definitely not the cigar for you.
The last half before I finally put it down....was just as good as the first half, maybe a tad stronger, no harshness or bitterness at all!
The burn on this cigar was razor-sharp the whole way through.
To draw...was perfect.
The ash...was a very light gray and well stacked!
The aroma...was terrific with no ammonia scent.
All in all...I give it a solid 90 out of a 100...a very decent cigar!

I bought a 5-pack as a birthday present to myself -- and now I can't wait to purchase a 20-pack. This was just a wonderful, mellow smoke from start to finish -- a genuine delight.

"Currently in Iraq... from KY"
I probably went a little crazy on my ratings of this cigar as I am new and have only had about 20 or 25 different sticks. But these are still my favorite hands. Thick creamy smoke, mild enough to take a full inhale if you so choose, but tasty enough to not inhale and just enjoy the taste that is left in your watering mouth. Currently on cigarmonster they have them 5 for 15 dollars. That price for these cigars is INSANE!

I bought these a month ago, let them sit in the humidor and just smoked the first one. I loved it! I highly recommend this smoke.

"Top 5 All-time"
It had great body and smooth flavor throughout. At the end it almost seemed like a little spicy kick at the end. It has been about 6 months since i had it, because it is hare to get up here since i do not order cigars online regularly. One of my favorites of all time

"A tasty cigar"
I have a humidor dedicated to Plasencia's, that says it all.

"Organic Belongs In A Health Food Store"
Just didn't work for me, the notes were not natural, and organic should not be in a cigar. It belongs in the health food store with the purple potato chips.
