Very fine cigar. Burned and smoked beautifully. Flavor not initially to my usual liking but last third developed nicely Unfortunately I will agree that it seems too pricey, though.
Maybe some people got a bad one for the rating to be so low on these. But Having just finished one I have to say these were a delight and I d recommend them to anyone who wants a hearty oily smoke.
I really like the flavor of this cigar. Just a hint of pepper and tons of creamy smoke. Got this is a sample set. After lighting it up and taking a few puffs I m thinking I should order a box of these. After the first third this stick becomes a chore to smoke, such a disappointment. After you struggle thru the second third, burning up the fuel, the last third becomes pretty good again. Kind of a shame for such a good tasting stick to burn like that. I ll try a different size and maybe I ll get better results.
Purchased a Five-Pack a few weeks ago and smoked one and put the other four in my humidor for a while.WOW ..... what a wonderful stick! I thoroughly enjoyed this cigar. It is now a permanent member of SAHTAC. Should Always Have Them Around Club
I bought one of these to see what the high rating was about - couldn t imagine anything to be as good as a Rocky Patel. I put it in my humidor and forgot about it for over a month. When I fired it up it blew me away! It is possibly the best cigar I ve smoked in 25 years... the hand, the roll, the draw, the flavor... it burned perfectly - still love Rocky but I ordered the test flight to have a few on hand.Absolutely worth the freight.
My full flavored palate craves the complexity of Alec Bradley s Presado box pressed robusto. Featuring a skillful blending of powerful Honduran %26 Nicaraguan ligeros, capped off with the darkest corojo leaf imaginable. Real burn %26 draw issues throughout the entire AB line seem to be abating, otherwise believe the hype %26 like me, wonder about the negative reviews. Grab a few on sale %26 see if you don t agree that this probably represents full bodied corojos as well as any cigar in recent memory. 95/100
From the first puff this cigar is bold and aggressive. You ll taste the fruity flavors right away. A fruit salad of flavor You ll taste the individual fruits towards the middle of the stick. You taste a little cherry, maple and some berry. This is not a cigar to take lightly. It is a full bodied smoke with some punch. The draw was easy, the smoke was creamy and thick Erich ads to the enjoyment. The only problem I had was an inconsistent burn. Overall a top choice cigar.
I am amazed that some customers dislike this cigar. Full of wonderful flavors from rhe first to last! Has become my favorite cigar Lookin forward to cruise in September to show these off in the cigar lounge
When I have the time to sit back for cigar and bourbon time with close friends, this is the cigar I bring out. Consistant all around. And the full bodied taste makes smoking them a pleaure.
I love these cigars. The taste is very different it has a nutty flavor to it. Very smooth easy draw. A must have for any humidor.
