These cigars looked flawless. Each one was built beautifully. The draw and taste were also good. My major dissappointment was that out of a full box only about four did not canoe on me.
I bought a couple of these at a local cigar store to "try before I bought" (a box), and I'm really glad that I did so. I was very disappointed. This cigar burned very well, it was well-constructed, and smelled good, but it had practically no discernable taste. I like a mild cigar occasionally, but I want SOME taste. I'm not real familiar with Macanudos, so maybe this is what they're supposed to be like. If so, they're simply not my cup o' tea.
I feel after trying all the cigars in the Macanudo Line, and Robust's, the Duke of Devon Natural's are the most consistent for quality, draw, taste, burning, and price.
