El Baton cigars are one of J.C. Newman's original historic brands, reissued in 2010 to widespread acclaim. This full-bodied blend is powered by an all-Nicaraguan core dressed in oily Corojo wrappers. El Baton offers a bold, hearty smoke that's made especially for experienced connoisseurs who appreciate full flavor and strength, and easily rivals cigars costing twice as much. If you count yourself a full-bodied smoker, we can't recommend El Baton highly enough. Try a box today!
A great smoke. Great wrapper and wonderful even burn. Lasted about 45 minutes, and I was sad to see it end. Consistent draw and taste. Loads of creamy smoke. Smooth flavor to start with a little bite towards the end. Ordering a box today!
Had this cigar in the humi so long not sure when I got it. It s been at least 6 months, snuggling with some of my fav CC s and non-CC s. It was a really fine looking cigar with a beautiful wrapper, nice pre-light aroma, well packed with no soft spots. It lit well, first 1/2 inch had a little tartness, settled down and burned well, very flavorful with lots of rich, smooth smoke and the ash held until I knocked it off @ 2 inches.Taste was strong, cedar and cinnamon/spice, got a little creamy and leather at the 1/2 way point, finish was smooth with no bite, maybe a little coffee and mocha. Overall a very enjoyable smoke, lasted @ 40 min and a bargain because I must have gotten it in a sampler for much less than the normal price. I ve got a 5er in my favorites and will repeat it has a wonderful wrapper, very well made and tasty.cheers
I am a cigar smoker who likes variety, all strengths and tastes across the spectrum. I bought a 5 pack and let them rest a while. I have smoked 2 of them and have been impressed, to some degree. It burns well, the ash held for an inch, wrapper was nice, draw was good and the taste was smooth and not weak. The trouble was that, as good as it seemed, the complexity was missing. They had a rich tobacco taste, enjoyable, but stayed the same throughout, not that its a bad thing, just I tended to lose focus on the cigar. But like I said, I enjoyed it, would consider them again if on special but I wouldn t rush out and buy some more. Having said all that, I did smoke it down to the nub, proof that I did like it. No regrets in buying them.
