This came in a sampler, so I wasn’t especially looking to smoke one. I expected it to be barely smokeable, but it exceeded my expectations by a fair amount. The draw was perfect, it burned evenly, the wrapper held up and didn’t split, and it wasn’t bland.
Nothing good about the three I tried. All were plugged and ended up chucking two of them. Cut a third of the cigar from the cap on the other and it became smokable, but nothing special on the taste. Burn was very uneven on all 3. Save your money.
I bought a 5 pack of this brand to try them before I sent some to my uncle with the same name George I really enjoyed the smoothness. the ring gauge is perfect. It is a mild to medium smoke. I liked my five pack so much I jumped on the special box deal and bought 20 more. Fantastic cigar I will fill my humidor with them. They also keep a nice even burn and long ash. the sign of a well built cigar.
One of my favorites and reasonable priced to boot! The combination of wrapper and binder gives this cigar a very unique flavor that is spicier than most Connecticuts but milder than full flavored cigars. A nice cigar to enjoy after a full flavored cigar in the same day. Consistent burn and draw after only a week in the humidor. I m on my second box of these sticks. sticks.
MY GO TO CIGAR
This is definitly a premium cigar. Every aspect of the smoking experience is superior. My problem is I'm a cheap SOB, and I find it difficult to pony up more than $100 for a box. Still, these compare very favorably with the best Rocky Patel's I've smoked, and I would rate them higher personally than the Macanudos (my best friend smokes) or Montecristos (my brother smokes) of similar design and style, and they are cheaper than any of those. So you will have to make up your mind for yourself. Get five first if you can. You will have yourself five nice evenings of smoking pleasure.
These are really good smokes for someone who might indulge a couple smokes a day. They are smooth, burn nicely and have a great draw. They taste great as well. An excellent value.
my every day go to cigar
This is a superior smoke, really medium-bodied rather than mild-medium. Like all Oliva products, the construction is excellent, and this cigar always draws beautifully, producing a rich mouthful of smoke. The Nicaraguan fillers and the Ecuadoran Connecticut wrapper are a great combo. This is every inch a premium cigar, much better than many more expensive products. Stick to the Churchill, which is great tasting and is now my "go to" smoke when I have the time to enjoy.
Construction on these stogies is absolutely gorgeous; smooth as silk, practically no veins in sight, and rolled to have an almost perfect draw. Great heft and feel.Flavor is very, very nice and consistent. Delivers plentiful smoke and has a delightful aroma. Burn is even and the ash is firm but falls off easily with a good flick.Started out as a great smoke out of the box. Now, it?s phenomenal. Every puff a sheer delight.
I think the George’s reserve is one of the best tasting cigars on the market for the price. I prefer the smooth milky flavor over most of the $150 plus Churchill’s I have purchased. I will continue to order this cigar in the future.
I ve never tried these before and I was very surprised that they were really pretty outstanding for an inexpensive cigar. Good draw, nice construction and a mild to med taste. I will by more of these in my next order. Overall a pleasant, well made cigar, rolled by an experianced cigar roller as the construction was excellent! Good show!
