Saint Luis Rey Serie G No. 6
6 x 60 - Dark Natural - Box of 25
Saint Luis Rey Serie G No. 6 cigars present a hearty, full-bodied smoke with loads of flavor. These affordably-priced cigars have a spicy Nicaraguan Habano wrapper and a Nicaraguan binder that surround a zesty, well-balanced blend of juicy Honduran and Nicaraguan longfiller tobaccos. The cigar burns well with a firm, stippled ash, as it stealthily blooms into a rich, earthy smoke with notes of cocoa, coffee, and semi-sweet spices. A real treat if you love full-flavored cigars.

My first SLR was a maduro, so the Serie G was a slight step down in strength, but no flavor is sacrificed in these. I have had my share of pricey cigars, and this affordable stick really is impressive.
I agree with the other reviews on this blend in a way. I smoked this fat 6"x60 size and it provided an excellent smoking session. However, I also smoked the 6.5"x54 Torpedo, and the flavor offering was much better. Happens to many blends where more of the cigars filler drowns out the great flavor that cigars wrapper has to offer. As l said, this blend is great in any size, but if you are looking for bolder flavor try the smaller ring sizes.
At first, I was very impressed with the appearance of this cigar. It has a truly beautiful wrapper. After I light it, things went downhill quickly. The first few puffs were weedy and peppery, then it wouldn't stay lit, then it wouldn't burn evenly. The draw was even but you have to work so hard to keep it lit, it runs the taste and overheats the tobacco. I am half way through the box and my disappointment grows. My advice, save your money.
