"Cheap n Nasty"
These used to be a really tasty smoke that were firmly wrapped and had a great draw but like the other Tatiana s they have started making them cheaper and this reflects the quality, now you get bits in your teeth after the cigar is half smoked.
Spend your money on another brand!

"Could Be Better"
I received a couple of these cigars in the Coffee Wingman #6 pack sampler. I've been wanting to try them but was hesitant on purchasing more than a couple of them. The cigars were extremely soft %26 squishy. They were very loosely rolled. When I cut the end the cigar was so squishy that I couldn t get a good cut, some of the tobacco tore. This resulted in some loose stands of tobacco that I had to keep spitting out of my mouth while I was smoking it. The cigar tasted OK but it was so loosely rolled that it really took away from the experience. This could be a very good cigar if the construction were better.

"Taste good, bad constuction"
I liked how the cigar tasted, but its construction was a drawback to me. Like others have noted, the cigar is spongy, too loosely packed, and I too had bits of filler in my mouth too frequently. The burn to me was OK. I will look elsewhere for a coffee / mocha infused taste.

"Not bad, but not great"
It s a decent cigar for the price. The Isla del Sol is better. This cigar is a little on the spongy side, but the price reflects it s construction. It is sweet, but tends to have a less than razor sharp burn on the ash. If you can get them on sale, they re worth the price.

"Good, but not great."
A good tasting cigar, but not great burning or great in it's construction. I've smoked several of these and they've all gotten spongy about 2/3 s of the way through. They have all tended to burn at about a 30 degree angle. Isla del Sol is a better value for the money.

I ve tried the Java line and thought this would be more or less similar - boy, was I wrong. Before the wrapper came off, I thought I had a stick air freshener. The cigar was loose , heavily scented and rough looking. The initial light and taste was like perfume. About half way down, the cigar got squishier and I kept spitting out tobacco bits as it started falling apart. I just hope I can give away the other 4 in the sampler to those who don t know cigars.

...do NOT use a cutter w/ this cigar (unless you like spitting out filler tobacco). I made this mistake...and although the cigar burned well w/ lots of smoke, I'm not a fan of tobacco pieces in my mouth. Very loose draw, and kinda spongy in feel. I'll try another w/ a punch...but if it's a similar result to a cut, it'll be my last Stabona.

"Not my first choice"
I ordered these as part of the coffee wingman packs. Compared to the other samples in #1 and #2 these cigars finish a distant 3rd. I wish they would replace this as part of the pack. The cigar while being decent is so loosely packed it is like smoking an old lucky strike.

Dirty cigar,Found cigarette filler in my first one. Go for Isla Del Sol or Tabak Especial by Drew Estate. Do not buy DIRTY cigars.
