I found this cigar to rate between a mild and medium strength. It was my first so I can t rate the consistency. What makes this cigar is the maduro wrapper. The pleasant maduro tang remains throughout the smoke. The wrap is loose which isn t a bad thing in this case. I got a little uneven burn, but I adjusted by burning the high spot from time to time on the outside wrapper just enough to keep the burn line fairly even, but it requires a little more maintenance than most premiums I ve smoked. Aroma is almost nonexistent, but the maduro wrapper makes up for this by providing a nice, medium boldness. It provided me with a fair amount of smoke which for me is a plus. The wrapper contains some minor veins, but nothing too rough. Nice apperance. Soft to the touch with no hard spots. Feels like it might be a little moist inside, but the mottled ash remained up to 2 inches before falling off. Stays lit pretty well but I wouldn t take any less than a draw per minute and I drew on it about every 30-40 seconds. Overall a nice smoke and worth the investment at a $1 a stick.
At under a buck a stick, it is what it is...cheap cigars. That said, it s kind of hard to bitch about a non-premium bundle that isn t on par with your favorite premiums, but this has it s place. Instead of having buddies eyeball my good humidor during UFC and football nights and telling them to kick rocks like I usually tell them, I load up my decoy humidor with these. The usually non-smokers can burn these a quarter of the way and abandon it for all I give a shit. Keep in mind, not all are horrible in the assorted bundle. I m not going to use the word gem , but a few are passable. As an everyday smoke Sure. Better with age You can t polish a turd. Take it for face value.
It s simple, cigars are either great, not so great or just plain terrible. Don t worry about what all these so called cigar analysis say what they taste when they re reviewing a cigar such as they taste earth, hay, leather, wood and whatever else you can think of. It s all crap! I ve been smoking cigars for 59 years. I either like what I smoke or I don t. Do what the old timers do. Put the damn cigar in your mouth and smoke it. After listening to all these ridiculous reviews I don t know if I want to smoke it, eat it or throw it away. Here s my review of this cigar. Absolutely delicious. Buy lots of them...Famous Dave
Love the packaging, they looked beautiful as a favor in the whiskey glass with Jack Daniel personals. Everyone who smoked them at the party loved the rich flavor, great reviews, totally enjoyed them.
Great Product, Great Price!
A great daily smoke and excellent in all aspects. I ve never been disappointed with this smoke and recommend it highly.
The taste, draw, and consistency are excellent compared to many of the big boys. Highly recommended.
Great service employees r very helpful
Excellent cigar at any price. I m on my 2nd bundle and will make is a must have from now on. Famous Smokes, keep this cigar in inventor
For my budget ECR are a prayer come true. I am new to smoking Churchill size cigars 6 mo and I m still learning the ins and outs. I would much rather learn on an ECR than a 3 dollar or higher priced cigar. I don t have anything at this time bad to say about Angry Monks. I like the taste, construction, and appearance. The burn, draw and consistency are a bit different cigar to cigar. I order enough to qualify for one of the free promos offered, I use the promo to order higher priced Churchill to compare them to the Angry Monks. For me price is everything and for now Angry Monks are my choice. I hope Famous Smoke Shop will continue to stock and sell ECR cigars.
