First,I am an Acid fan! The Mantra is another great stick from Drew Estate.My favorite is the One,and the Mantra follows it very well.I like it a bit better than Kuba-Kuba(maduro). A great smoke if you are into Acid!
I tried one as a free gift and I loved it. So I bought a box. Every other one refuses to stay lit and is really hard to hit. I thought they were to moist so I set a couple out and had the same thing happen. I won t give a bad review because this could be partly my fault. But I haven t had this problem with any other acid cigar.
After a nice steak dinner paired with some red wine , I poured myself a blasphemous mix of 1/2 wine & 1/2 brandy. Poured a shot of straight brandy, dipped the tip in the brandy about 1/2 inch , light up, took a couple of puffs, followed by the shot of brandy ... then smoked it while sipping on my hard wine ... whooosaaa!
This is one of the best cigars I have ever had. 10 s across the board!
I have been smoking ACID cigars religiously for years now, and every one is a home run. This one is probably my second-favorite next to the Toast but the best of the Subculture series. It s just right for a sixty to ninety minute smoke. Smooth but with a small spice kick near the end and burns just right. Nice and consistent as long as you don t hotbox it. Best part with this is you don t even need a cutter, just twist off the pigtail on the cap and you re good to go. And maybe it s just me, but I really dig the shaggy head on these cigars. Gives it a rustic feel. A perfect cigar all around.
This cigar is awesome from start to finish
I have always thought the Kuba Kuba was the best from Drew Estate. The Kuba has always been my go-to cigar when I crave a flavor bomb. One taste of the Progeny has forever changed me. Progeny is clearly my new favorite!
Conundrum: How do you make a perfect addition to a perfect line of cigars? Answer: Acid Subculture Progeny.
These are by far the best acid cigar I have ever smoked. It is easily one of my top 5 if not top 3 cigars I have ever had. If you like kuba's this cigar puts them to shame. It is quite simply amazing.
I have been looking for "another" cigar; you know, one with the QUALITY of the Kuba, but with a different taste. That every other day cigar; Kuba one day, another cigar the other. Hey, Drew: THIS IS THAT CIGAR.
Amazing, My favorite in the whole Drew Estate lineup as well as the Natural Dirt and Natural English.
