I smoke a lot of different cigars and these taste good and different from the other cigars I smoke. I bought a box about 4 months ago. The first one I smoked wouldn t stay lit. That is no longer an issue, The draw is good, the burn not so much. After smoking for a awhile the burn is uneven and looks like the cigar was attacked by rabid squirrels. The wrapper is also somewhat fragile Would I buy them again. That would depend on price. I paid $39.95 a box. They are now on sale at $49.95 and my buy price would probably be about $29.95 with secondary discounts.
The first one wouldn t stay lit and burned unevenly. It got harsh past mid way. I ve now smoked several, some are better, they ll stay lit and the taste is consistent all the way. Every cigar has had a uneven burn and I had to use my torch to keep it even. They were cheap and I got what I paid for.
I have smoked an entire box of these. The construction is almost flawless, I had one that was constructed poorly but all the rest burn and smoke evenly and they hold their ash well. The taste is not simplistic either. It kicks in with a lot of black peper but then the peper slows down and you get more woody favors. In the last third it always turns to bitter chocolate, without being pepery, and this is the part that I like the most. I have had several h upmanns from different lines and I can totally say I have never been disappointed. H upmann is always a safe bet for a cigar that is regurarly priced but performs above its price range.
I enjoyed this cigar very much it was very well constructed great draw in good flavors very enjoyable well recommended
I recommend good to cigar to anyone.
You look at these cigars, expect a good smoke and that is what you get. Nice, consistent construction lends to a consistent, nice draw.
These are excellent cigars for the money. but I m more of a cheroot / ugly coyote kind of smoker.
Will be a regular in my humidor...Upmann cigars will occupy space in my humidors!
Excellent maduro smoke
Very nice medium smoke. A little more cigar than I usually have, but burn was good, draw and flavor great.
Good cigar and nice taste. BUT! it does not burn evenly, and that can be a pain. Other than that it has a nice long burn time.
