Medalist Gordo cigars are full-flavored premium cigars enriched by a mouthwatering Costa Rican wrapper that surrounds a well-balanced, rich-tasting blend of Honduran, Nicaraguan, and Connecticut tobaccos. The construction, complex flavor, and inviting aroma are all first-rate. Highly recommended!
I expected more based on the catalogue review.I purchased the Padilla Hybrid Torp and the Patel Selects Toro in the same order. This was not in their league. Bland taste. So so draw. Pretty cigar for sure. At this price point, there are a shload of better cigars to be had.
This smoke has got to be one of the most frustrating love hate relationships I've ever been involved in. One day they reward with a mellow complex smoke that really makes me stop and say "WOW, that's why I smoke these". Other times I wonder why I'm wasting my precious cigar smoking time on these nightmares. Some are nicely rolled and burn beautifully, with a perfect draw and volumes of smoke. Others can be so soggy I can just about fold the ammoniated suckers in half. Yup, I think I'm done with these. Look for them on a clearance shelf near you. "Life is too short for a bad cigar".
Burn - Sideways isn't bad, is it? I'll smoke the other half later. Consistency - Very consistent. Consistently bad.Draw - You'll have a muscular, fully veined Schwarzenegger (Predator era) neck after two or three of these smokes.Appearance - Looks like a cigar. I assure you it is not. This is an exercise device.Taste - Nice mild smoke...if you chew it.Construction - Mostly twigs and branches. Break one of these open and you'll see that it's filled with mite chewed leafs...probably not good enough for Phillip Morris.
I tried a special from Famous and I hate to say it but I regret it very much. Very harsh cigar, had to relite it twice. threw it away midway. I will still order from Famous because delivery time is always great, just a bad choice by me should have read prior reviews.
