"Great smoke for a awesome price"
I picked these up in the smallest ring gauge as possible. The reason is I like lanceros and 2 of my favorites are the 7-20-4 and the 262 Paradigm. Both of those have the Brazilian Mata Fina wrapper so, I got these hoping. Although not exactly the same, some of the same and my favorite flavors. Espresso, slight chocolate and creamy. Definite will buy more, wish they had a lancero. As with all J Fuego cigars, construction was good, not great.

"Not for me!"
Everything about these cigars was very good.But the taste was very bitter and acidy all 5 in the pack.But that is just my opinion.

"A Must Try!"
Wow! This is one great smoke. Construction, draw and burn were flawless. Incredible flavors of well-aged tobacco, espresso, leather and nuts. Full-bodied, yet oh so smooth.Immediately went to my "top 3." Could easily fetch two or three times the price.You've gotta try these!

"Flavorful companion for the afternoon session..."
These cigars caught my attention for two reasons:
- Price was right.
- I'm a Capoeira player myself, so I couldn't resist.
Solid constructions, packed dense for a corona size cigar. The initial cut on the cigar was clean and draw was effortless (before lighting).
Wood notes, full flavor of tobacco, cedar and somewhat leathery. Initial burst of pepper, which surfaces randomly throughout the smoke. Copious amonts of smoke, which makes to a satisfying puff. Relatively straight burn. Found some of them to be a little harsh at the back of the throat, but considering that I was puffing a little to frequently, it may have contributed to it.
In general, this is a good cigar to have in the afternoon, with a nice cup of coffee, and spark discussion among fellow herfers, particularly if the subject is Capoeira (the martial art). All in all, a satisfying, flavorful, satisfying smoke.
