Very rich (with a hint of white chocolate and Honduran mahogany), very earthy, mellow, leathery, herbal (including a breath of fennel & rosemary which are essentially never found in a cigar), soft, very complex,...full of organic nuances;...a full-bodied cigar with many Cuban attributes, that is worthy of the opulence of its golden band and its price.
Don't know what all of the fuss is about! Their are cigars a forth of the price that taste just as good! But you would rather hold the Diamond in your hand to impress someone! Take the bands off most cigars and you would not even know the difference!!
Got a 5-pack on auction thinking I might store them for a special occasion. Had to try one on arrival though just to see. Wow! A perfect draw of ultra rich and smooth flavor down to the nub. Sucks that this cigar and My Father, my other favorite, are so damn expensive.0 1
100s across the board. All the flavor and boldness you could ask for, without knocking you on your butt.0 0
I got this fine cigar in a two pack with an Opus X of the same size from the Big Smoke in Las Vegas November 2008. I smoked the Opus X and I thought that it was a good smoke, but I didn't think it was great. I'm sure there will be those out there that will say I'm crazy...Sorry, it just didn't suit my taste... I return to the scene of the crime when I went back to Vegas in June 2009 for Vacation and I brought the DC Maximus with me. Wow! Very flavorful, beautiful ash, and great aroma. This cigar got a 10 out of 10 in my rating. There is not one thing bad I can say about this stick. Well, there is one thing. It's an expensive cigar, but a quality worth every penny. Yes, I though that this cigar was better than the Opus X it came with.0 0
One of the best cigars I have ever smoked! I`ve had Padron anniverserios and cuban Monticristo #2s, and these are consistently right up there with them. If you got the money you can`t go wrong!0 0
These will put me in the poor house, but i will buy nothing else period!0 0
Superior smoke taste and all around great cigar!0 1
I've never had better. Definitely a worthy addition to any collection. Buy a whole box, age them several years, and take one out on very special occasions for that perfect moment. Even my wife loves them!0 0
Rich and smooth. Just a wonderful stick! Is the price worth it? Probably a matter of personal preference. Found it enjoyable. Something to splurge on for the holiday s or a special occasion.0 1
I have had several 93 rated cigars but the Maximus is one of, if not the best I've had. Smooth, tasty, 2" ash, great finish, and easy even draw.0 1
