I’ve been buying Carnage for almost 10 years. I’m still smoking ‘em. All Nicaraguan tobacco, oily with great construction, full body with a lot of flavor at a great price. Best advice, try them yourself and make up your own mind. I have.
First third: Nice wood, earth and almond flavors, with a pleasant retro-hale to boot. Second third: Flavors liven up a bit on the palate and a very slight increase of spice on the nose. Tastes of leather also emerge. Last third: Now we re talking! This is the best part. All aforementioned flavors still present just better . Deeper tastes of wood, earth and leather. Conclusion: Good, tasty smoke with a bit of a tighter draw than I like, but still a solid cigar and a great burn. I think these would be better categorised as medium, maybe medium/full, not really a full bodied smoke. All things considered, I ll definitely smoke these again. I enjoyed this one down to the nub, I hope you will too.
This stick was a freebee with a past order. I let it sit in the humidor for about a year and nine months @ 65% R before getting an itch to lite it up. The construction was very good. Pre-light aroma was a faint creamy leather and semi dry wood. Draw was excellent and burn was straight. The least favorite part of this stick for me was the taste, unfortunately... Dry, woody taste and a leathery hint. The finish didn t last long and there was a bitterness to the finish that kept me from wanting to smoke it much past the band point.
I received this free with an order and I must say that it really surprised me. Great even burn, plenty of smoke, great flavor as well. Also a slow burner for the robusto size. Would absolutely buy again, well worth it at this price point.
I finally found a low cost box of cigars for everyday. Nice spice, beautifully constructed, great burn and a nice draw.
Was looking forward to smoking one, just wasn t as I remember them
Hey Guys .....I have to agree with Done H. on this one ,A real semi -mild smoke with nuances of wood, leather n spices. It still tickles the old taste buds down to the nub with a great finish ! Not a bad smoke at all for the chip s ! Im gonna get a few more and I think they are the best kept secret ..Buy a few stick s to try ! Hey Don, Ship me up some hot weather will ya !
I received one for free with my order. It s an OK smoke, but kind of light on the flavor for something that is supposed to be full flavored. I probably wouldnt smoke another even if it were gifted to me
