Just finished off a Griffin's Maduro Robusto with an outstanding glass of wine and found the taste to be surprisingly fuller than I was expecting. The draw and burn was excellent with the great smelling smoke that I was expecting. The construction is very firm as you would expect from this high quality of a cigar. What surprised me was I was expecting the tast to be more of a mild to medium, but I would say that it was more medium to full. Don't get me wrong, it was an outstanding smoke, but more fuller than I was expecting.
I usually smoke davidoff, fino blend, various other small cigars by partagas, nat sherman, villager, Dutch cigarillos, etc...these stand on their own and are satisfying and gave a wholesome big cigar flavor.
Greate Taste it is one perfecto Cigar
smoked one from a sampler pack, great taste, not harsh and good down to the end...Held its ash and did not need relighting. Lasted9-12 holes on the golf course..very smooth and enjoyable...
I've been trying a number of perfectos lately because I've decided I like the look of this cigar and I like the way it burns, and feels in the hand. It's shape, well balanced, the smoke, soothing from end to end. This perfecto hits a balance with me that lets me do all the things I want with a cigar. Ok, don't go there...But honestly, this is one of few cigars I can say the draw was effortless, each puff and exhale delivered a sweet cloud of varied bouquet. The room filled with a delicious aroma, and seldom did the smoke scorch my eye and parch my throat. Some call this a mild cigar, but I'm not a smoker. I have a delicate palate, and these cigars deliver a flavor that you can taste like a meal. I let the smoke collect around me, I take in the fine Tabak. It's an enjoyable smoke and my new best friend.
I've smoked Griffin's #300 for years and have found the blend and wrapper to be of exceptional quality. The cigar is very well made, lights good and when purchases by the box, a great value. If you've never smoked a Griffin's, you owe it to yourself to buy one and give it a try!!
The Griffins brand is the very best cigar I have tried....and I have tried hundreds. It is a mild smoke so if you like a full bodied cigar this isn't for you. This is a creamy nutty flavor cigar that looks and burns perfectly.
New to cigar smoking, purchased five packs of Ashton, Don Diego, Macanundo, and Griffins. The Griffins were by far the most enjoyable. Smooth, even burn, good construction to the end. Will be buying a box of these!
Just the other day I thought I'd have a change of pace, instead of an Anniversario or a Zino. I thought I'd pick up a Griffins, so I went with a maduro robusto, it was a brilliant decision on my behalf; I punched a hole in that cigar and got perfect pre-lit draw and a taste of that buttery Habanos wrapping which was surreal for a Dominican cigar, and a Davidoff no less. Anyway I light it up and am met with a complexity that parallels a Siglo, it's the first cigar that wasn't a Habanos that tasted just like one over the course of my eight years of cigar smoking. Lastly it left no aftertaste, maintained an even draw, never got too hot within which I smoked it down to a nub. Definitely need to get a box or two!
One stick of The Griffins is all it will take and you may never desire any of your old favorites again. Consistantly smooth with a scrumptious boquet and a draw that brings you back to those old havanna nights.
This cigar is awesome! I have smoked cigars for many years and I was recently introduced to the one by a friend. After finishing the first one, I was certain it was a $20 cigar, wrong, this is one of the best values and a pleasure to enjoy.
