This is a good cigar for sitting around with friends or just smoking on a walk. Your not going to sit there alone and pick out tasting notes so to speak although of course they are there its just not that level cigar. It has a fantastic looking wrapper with no visible veins or wrap openings. Cold Draw is peppery as you would imagine from a Habano wrapper but not so much that it punches your throat, but its there and says hello. The light up is very easy and actually had to pull the trip flame lighter further away than usual because the foot lit so easily. 1st 3rd is not much to write about. You kinda have to get through it. The 2nd opens into a habano flavor that makes you truly appreciate the cigar, and finishes with a blend of hay, lite coffee beans mild bitter but not bad and pepper. The smoke is very solid and thick enough to see blown across the room. If you are looking for a humidor filler or going to an event and want some cigars to smoke with friends, bring these.
The Dark Ages Nine Kingdoms Robusto is one of the best cigars I ve had in a long time. I was leery to try them as I usually stick to what I know, but the price of these made it easy for me to try them. They didn t disappoint. I would say I m shocked at how good these are, and not only because of the insanely low price. I ve bought three jars of these in the last 2 or 3 weeks and I ll be ordering them again for as long as Famous carries them. This is the deal of the year, among all online cigar retailers, as far as I m concerned. I can t remember a better, more consistent stick in this price range... not even close. Kudos Famous! And thank you!
Awesome cigar if your a caldwell fan this is an affordable alternative
These have become one of my favorites. They are a great medium bodied stick with good smoke and flavor from start to finish. Once you factor the price in these are a steal.
I have to say it s a classic blend that you all have nailed and for an awesome price. The art on the jar caught my attention and had me reading about this blend and your others as well. My wife loves this flavor and is becoming a favorite everyday smoke for her. I will be ordering when my stock gets low and that won t take long at all. great work
I like this the best of all the Dark Ages. I had ordered a five pack of the robusto size a while back, and they were good. So when they went on sale, I ordered a jar of 20 in toro size. They need to sit in the humidor for a few days. It starts off with some spice, then about half way through it mellows out and really has nice flavor to it. The plastic jar they come in is interesting. It can be re used as a temporary humidor. It is a nice idea, but it probably adds to the price of the cigars.
Great taste,aroma,construction,burn, and price!
I bought these because the price was so good and I needed the extra travel humidor. I?ve been pleasantly surprised. Good tasting smokes. They burn fast but I haven?t had any construction, draw or burn issues.
I could not believe how good this cigar is. I bought 2 boxes toro and Churchill. And both of them are very well made. It was a very pleasant smoke. I will be buy more.
I was really surprised with this cigar. It s a very pleasant smoke. The constitution was good along with taste. It had no burn issues at all. I will be buy more asap.
Cigar burns evenly. Very peppery and acidic at the start. Lives up to the ?robusto? name. The wrapper is glorious, oily and dark and delicious, like a great maduro wrapper. Taste is not bad, about what you would expect from a cigar in this price point. I have certainly had more expensive cigars that were worse than this in flavor.There is not a lot of development in flavor in the mid and end burn. This one pretty much tastes the same from start to finish, which isn?t a bad thing. The flavor is good, strong and robust. It just doesn?t develop. Again, for it?s price point, it?s well worth the cost.Appearance, burn, and consistency are all top notch. Construction is solid. Draw is even and leaves no room for complaint. If you are into robustos and looking for an affordable daily smoke, you won?t got wrong with this one.
