I liked the taste but it was rolled too loosely...too much fire with each draw...then had to relight twice...

"Not bad at all"
Got this one as part of a sampler and was very pleased. The construction was good...firm all the way through. Burn was even, producing a light grey/near white ash which held to just over 1/3 of the cigar before falling off. Taste was in the "medium" category, a bit stronger than say, a Macanudo, starting off slightly spicey, then switching to a sort of leathery and woodsy flavor for the rest of the stick. Very smooth and not overpowering (to a newbie like myself). I'd definitely recommend trying one and would give it somewhere around an 7.5 to 8 overall on a scale of 1 to 10.

For the first half of this cigar(both times I tried them) it was like trying to suck a golf ball through a water hose. Granted this is a nice mellow tasting smoke,kind of earthy,with new leather comming through in the finish, but the draw was intolerable. I would like to try another one of these from a different bunch. Maybe the person rolling these had a stressfull day. Nice flavor.

"A bit of a disappointment"
This smoke was a bit of a disappointment after finishing a box of Especial #4 maduro. Overall not a bad smoke for the price but it lacked the depth and complexity of several other maduro and oscuro selections.
