XEN by Nish Patel cigars reflect who Nish is (not just Rocky's little brother) and what he loves about cigars. Xen is flawlessly handmade with a secret longfiller core blend, Nicaraguan binder, and boxed-pressed in silky-smooth Ecuadorian-grown Connecticut wrappers. (They even have cool-looking bands.) Expect a solid, medium-bodied cigar with superb balance, plus flavors of sweet spice, coffee, and cedar with a nutty finish. Order of box of these HOT new cigars now. Nice going Nish!

Got this freebie also but noticed immediately the wrapper was split and damaged in several locations. Not a good start!I would judge this cigar just OK at best after struggling to keep it lit after several touchups. Not a bad smoke but I think one's hard earned cash can be placed elsewhere for a moderately priced cigar with a better wrapper, complexity and construction.less

I received this smoke as a freebie with my latest order. Fairly decent construction and firm with little give. Lit real easy with an easy but not too easy draw. Taste was a little spicy in the begin and went away. With the rest of the smoke being a medium to light with a woodsy/nutty flavor with a hint of.... I'm not sure. Couldn't really put my palate on it, but enjoyable. I would be interested in purchasing at least a 5pack to investigate more. However I believe Nish may have a winner here. Good Job!less

Got a promo, rested at 68rh for 2 months, went to clip the end,RRRRRRrip went the silky-smooth but oh so fragile wrapper.$$$hit!! bad start, first third was Harsh, 2nd third improved somewhat reminiscent of RP Royal Vintage, but lacking overall depth. Good burn, smoke output, draw was on the loose side (ala RP) but I couldn't really tell with my busted wrapper! Nothing new on final 3rd, good oils, aromas, just lacking "Xen" ne sais quoi!less

I got this cigar free with another purchase so I don't want to complain. That being said...... The taste was not good. Everything else about this cigar was really nice, the appearance, the burn, ect. But the flavor left much to be desired, it was bitter from start to finish. Thanks for the sample but it convinced me not to purchase and I suspect your intentions were otherwise. less
