I have loved these cigars since they came out some years back. Medium to full without being overly strong, spicy, a bit of pepper but not alot, slightly sweet, delicious aroma, excellent construction with smooth draw and even burn. If you like RP Sun Grown, or the Edge (which I love), try this.
Not sure why anyone would complain about this cigar, unless they just don't like a full body. Very peppery to start, but smoothed out quickly with some nice flavor changes throughout. One of the most interesting cigars I have smoked. Perfect draw, nice even burn and good 60 minutes out of it. Even stayed cool down to the last inch. Very impressed.
Just finished this cigar about ten minutes ago. Even though this is a labeled as a full bodied cigar, it has a smooth, easy taste to it. I got the impression of a toasty, nutty flavor with some deeper flavors that were a bit more subtle like leather. The burn was slow and consistent, ant the ash held so well, you could use it for a jack stand! All in all, very good. I'd recommend this cigar to seasoned smokers as well as newbies! Haven't had one yet? Try it. You won't be disappointed!
i got two of these in a sampler in Dec 2010. Bought a 5pack and the consistency is right on. Same draw, flavor and smoke. Great aroma and flavor. I agree though this is more of a medium to medium full bodied cigar. let them chill in your humi for a few weeks and get to your favorite humidity and enjoy!!!
Love it, absolutely fantastic cigar in every way. I wake up thinking about these babies! Current stock is still EO Brands, I bought 3 boxes at once, what s that tell you?
This may be my favorite cigar. I've smoked about 7 or 8 (it's a little out of my usual price range), and every one has been fantastic. It's got a great cedary flavor with a little caramel, and a little pepper, but not so much that it throws the balance out of whack. It's a cuban-esque tasting cigar, but the quality and construction far surpasses the majority of cubans I've smoked.
Couldn't wait to let them sit so I tried one right off. This is one fantastic cigar. Tastes great from initial light up right till the end. Nice even burn with a creamy taste!!
My go-to golf cigar. Strong enough to satisfy on a windy, cloudy day. Never harsh on your throat, but full bore taste. The habano wrapper is the best. Doesn t become sloppy down to the nub. Easy full draw for a churchill. The newly labelled ones are as good as the originals.
I would put this next to La Aroma De Cuba and Perdomo 20th ann. New staple in my humidor. Complex bouquet with a little spicyness and adequate smoke. Little construction issue, could have been somewhere in shipping or supply, end was mushroomed, but otherwise worthe every cent.
Granted, this is not a Cuban - but if you want to experience a "kissing cousin" of the Cuban Cohiba Siglo IV or Siglo V, this isn't far off.That being said, it has its harsh moments - something that cannot be said of those members of the Cohiba line. Bottom line, if you want a full bodied experience in a smoke, don't pass this one up!
