Great cigar...I can't believe they are as cheap as they are.
I received this cigar ? as part of a sampler. Seems like there is always one in a sampler that is thrown in just to move it. That sure was the case here. It looked nice, burned evenly, very good draw, but with a multi colored grey brown and grey ash. If you are looking for a very mild experience, you ve found it. But if you are looking for flavorful and satisfying smoke, I suggest you look elsewhere. I received two of these in the sampler and threw the 2nd one in the recycle bin without regret.
These cigars are fantastic. While they are not very complex, they have a nice, dry tobacco flavor. Generally these cigars will burn around 45 minutes and stay relatively cool. While the burn is not razor sharp, I have yet to have one that needs to be touched up. Finally, just like all the La Vieja cigars I have had, they are consistent in flavor and performance.
The burn on this cigar is awesome. Razor sharp, no uneven edges, just perfect. The taste may not be very complex, but it is good. You get a little bit of hay and woody notes, but that's about it. Overall it's a great cigar for the price.
Tried one and liked it so much I ordered a box. Some can be a bit twiggy, but the taste is very mid and pleasant.
La Vieja is a delightful & pleasant tasting cigar that can be enjoyed any time of day. When I finish one, I'm always tempted to light another.
On the second box. Have enjoyed each one. Great on the golf course.
These are great smokes! on 2nd box and have yet to be disappointed! i'm almost ready for a 3rd. i've tried all the other $5-10 bigger brand names, and i cant find one as good as this smoke. i buy them at a local shop for just about the same price about 1.30 a stick. i don't know why these aren't in everybody's humidor.
Found these to be very enjoyable and would suggest a person try them for the money.
Definitely a decent, affordable stick. Great for every day. Mild & consistent. The freebie that came with it was awesome too! Thank you, Famous!
Has quickly become a favorite of mind. Consistency of burn and flavor is a strong point of this smoke. Buy two boxes and save on the shipping. You'll be glad you did after the first box. Maybe small in ring size, but the Connecticut wrapper and mild flavor will rate high for most cigar smokers.
Flavor is light but matured nicely as it burned down. Fairly even burn. Supports an ash of about 3/4 to 1 inch and then falls off. Hint of pecan aroma. Nice smoke. Not bitter. Smoked it very short. Down to last inch.
