Decent smoke. Good smoky flavor for the fist half then it got rather harsh. Uneven fingernail burn. had to trim twice.
I should have returned these sticks after the second one repeated the problem. But, after smoking and sharing 14 of these cigars, it?s too late. The only saving grace is that they have a great taste. Not one of the 14 stayed lit. They?re stored in a 72% humidor. The other cigars in there stay lit. They do not burn evenly. On several sticks, I had to cut off or burn pieces of filler-kind of like stems. One friend asked what brand of butane I was smoking.
Upmann never disappoints and so it is with the Corona sun grown. Flavor 26% aroma plus mouthful of smoke brings real satisfaction and relaxation. Draw is medium tight but not at all a hassle. Smoked five before writing the review and will certainly buy and smoke more. Great cigar!
Maybe because I shot my best round while smoking this stick, lasts the front nine, stays consistent, burns nice...a favorite on the course.
This is the perfect Sunday afternoon smoke. Smooth and silky with a great balance of flavors that will keep you coming back for more. Lots of fragrant smoke with just a hint of sweetness on the backside. I will add these to my list of keepers for those lazy afternoons in the hammock.
Pre light draw had a bit sweetness. Slight licorice taste to me. Creamy smoke on 1/3 light sweetness with light pepper finish. Rich sweet aroma with lots of smoke. I cut only a bit on the torpedo tip for a slighter tight draw cause I tend to draw hard on my smokes. Cuban roots defiantly in this one. Very impressed with the construction. Flawless on the ones I received. Took off all the cellos and bands. Currently smoking one and put away the rest to age. For the price, this one is a definite winner in my book. I did smoke mine while it d raining so humidity was at a 100. Slightly affected burn and consistently.
Just had one after a nice steak dinner....excellent, much better than I expected.
An excellent cigar. H.Upmann delivers quality and flavor again at a great price!
Received 10 free cigars with my last order. I was pleasantly surprised since I had never smoked an H. Upmann before. The burn, draw, and appearance were all very consistent. The medium bodied smoke was quite good as I wasted away over an hour of my day.
The sticks in the box are a bit fresh but showing great potential. Can t wait to try again in 3-4 months.
I got a box as a bonus on my order - I thought I d give it a try. A very nice looking cigar, though the flavour was a bit rough half way down. I didn t like the uneven burn - it s a nice cigar but I wouldn t go out my way to get it again. The RP 60s that come as bonuses are better.
Smoked three. Nice draw but impossible to keep lit; very uneven burn. The smaller gauges of these sun growns is your best bet. Much better burn and more concentrated flavor and stink.
