This is a cigar for mild cigar smokers who want to try something with more pronounced flavors. I am more of a full smoker, so I was not nuts about this one. Don t get me wrong, its a fine cigar, but I felt the flavor that were there were just a bit lacking. The construction was great, burn was perfect, and the drawl was a bit snug. The flavor to me were a good mild tobacco with leather and some woody tones. No spice or particular sweetness that I could pick up. The mouth feel was that of a light cigar, the smoke was crisp, and neither chewy or oily. Finish was short and mild. Overall its a good cigar, just not my cup of tea as a more full flavor person.
beautiful little cigar with a very distinctive band. very well constructed and filled with an effortless draw. Very spicy on first impression, but mellowing a touch through the first half of the cigar. Spice and pepper come back strong with funk and cedar to the finish...excellent cigar, highly recommended!
Everything I have smoked from them is always a great smoke and these are included. These are great sticks especially for the money. You can not go wrong with these in your humidor ??
This is one underrated cigar. If like a smooth cigar with a ton of nicotine, them look no further. I Smoke a Magnum and was not able to fall asleep felt wired. Good smoke, I will buy more soon. Not for a beginner or someone with a mild palate.
I don t know why I isn t try these before now, but what an excellent cigar..great taste, well constructed, burns great...I well keep these in the humidor.
The 73 rating on the Gilded Age Churchill is skewed because of a small sample of raters, one of which literally skewered the cigar. I found the Churchill as fine a stick as the Toro, which I received free with three different orders. I subsequently ordered the Test Flight, and found that the Robusto and Magnum round out a magnificent family of smokes. A box of Magnums is in transit as I write this. GET SOME!!!
wrapper is dark and taste strong for a cigar rated medium strength
This cigar is full of tasting note surprises from beginning to end. It reminded me of the experience I had with the CAO Pilon. A must try for sure!
Great smoke and you really can t beat the price. This is one of my go-to everyday cigars.
This is the second time I have ordered these. My wife loves the faint fruity smell to the stick before I lite them. I have noticed a pleasant not over-powering fruity sweetness to the smoke. These are great to share with friends, or smoke for your own enjoyment. Either way you wont be disappointed.
