It was hard to belive that all they would do is remove the ring, take 'em outa da box and sell you Excal #1's at half price...I rated Excal #1 as one of the smoothest best tasting (medium strength) easy drawing cigars I have ever had and are among my regular smokes. Well I am a true beliver now, I have compared the bundlearos with the boxed and have had several friends do the same...some actually liked the bundle version better! Only Cuba snobs would not appreciate this excellent cigar at fire sale prices!
Very smooth smoke for a Honduran. Consistant burn and ash. This baby is a hog and requires quite a commitment (1 1/2 hr) but well worth it. Good golf cigar. Smokes smooth down to the last 2". I've smoked the 1st and 2nd and can't really tell the difference except for an occasional water spot. 2nds are a great value at $1.55 ea. Bought a bundle last Thursday and have had 4 already.
These are 4 and 1/2 inches of great smoking pleasure, and im new to this. The 54 naturals are also great10
An excellent cigar. Well made and flavorful. At about $2 each, they may be the best value I ve found.00
These are the same as the Punch Pita/Hoyo Governor. I compared them with the genuine article and the "Consuegra" seconds from the same factory. Good smoke!00
Well made, burns evenly, and it draws easily. Tastes very good. I have ordered another bundle and if it is as good as the one I recently got, I am going to load up.03
I love these cigars! I've bought several bundles (from Famous-Smoke and local stores). With very few exceptions, all have burned well and I love the spicy taste and aroma. They have become my favorite "everyday" smoke, and I prefer them to a number of much costlier cigars I've tried. Really a good, low cost maduro.00
I bought a bundle of the #63's on the auction site a while back and was surprised at the quality of the smokes right out of the bundle. I did a little research on the factory and unusual size and came up with the title of this review. Having over 500 premium sticks in storage in my various humidors whenever I return to one of these fine maduros it is a revelation. It is a mellow yet full bodied spicy smoke selling here at a fraction of the price it deserves being sold for. I usually do not smoke this ring size and length but somehow it really works for this blend. It is as enjoyable as some of the finest of the type and from now on some of these will always be in my inventory.00
This is the best tasting lower priced cigar that I have tried. It us my go to every day cigar now.10
Wow. Exceeded all expectations. Great size. Solid construction. Draw could be a little better - but 7 1/4 makes up for that. Hope its not a fluke - will buy again.10
Complex? No. Beautifully constructed? No. Best 40-minute yard-gar on the planet? Definitely.10
I have long been in search of a decent, affordable daily smoke. I usually end up disappointed, most frequently for issues with consistency and burn. The General Honduran No. 10s, however, have been a definitive joy. They re not perfect. One oughtn t buy a $25 bundle expecting Monte No. 2 quality. But these are really quite nice. I had only one in my first bundle that did not burn well and it s not inconceivable that I may have failed in the lighting process! . As far as consistency of taste, these are better than any bundle I ve sampled. I found them to have a nice medium-open draw, producing copious smoke, and with a savory medium-body, hinting at buttered toast. I can t vouch for the veracity of the claim that they come from the Punch/Hoyo De Monterrey factory, but they do have a certain Hoyo character. Based on my first bundle, definitely recommended as a daily smoke. If subsequent bundles are consistent with this first bundle, I ll be a devotee.10
