A wonderful cigar with a flawless construction and burn. The wrapper was outstanding and the taste is just as I want it - sweet and spicy, wellbalanced and smooth. It went from medium and came close to full bodied after half the cigar. I tried a 12-year Jamaican rum with it which was perfect. In my opinion it´s a 9+ (but it´s only after smoking one of them but I´ll definitely buy a box).
Got the 5 pack in a Wise Buy. First one I loved but after that I could not get a any draw at all, it was like sucking on a coffee stir stick. Finally I decided to cut this last one open and it was full of sticks and stems. I'd expect this from a value stick but not from a Macanudo! When you spend good money on a good cigar its really frustrating to get sticks and stems!
After thirty years of cigar and pipe enjoyment I have finally found a quick smoke that is AWESOME...even burn...slow...full bodied...nice hold...I actually smoked it down to the very end. It was AWESOME. Thank MACANUDO for a great smoke...what a comeback product...0 0
Yet another smoke that will remain in my box at all times. I only have a one complaint, a few of these have had a tight draw. A little finger rolling does the trick though. Other than that, a great smoke. I recommend it to anyone, even NUB's will like this one.0 0
I really enjoyed this smoke. It has a lot of flavor, and it was never too powerful.The burn, appearance, and overall construction are top shelf! My wife even enjoyed this one and suggested that I buy more without even asking what the price was... THAT IS PRICELESS!0 0
To Aaron: Based on your ability to spell, I suspect that you did not take the cigar out of the cellophane before trying to light it. That will give you an inconsistent smoke. This is one of the best Maduros on the market. This is the one that got me hooked on Maduros.0 0

I will agree, its a little tight on the burn. It makes up for in flavor and consistency. I am more of a natural smoker but this maduro i stock in my box. I enjoy more then the few other maduros i have had. Try one or five and enjoy!!0 0
These are one of my favorite cigars. I have never had a bad one. The draw and burn are very consistant, and the taste is extreamly even all the way t the band. The cigar stays together very nicely from start to finish I always know I am going to have a good smoke when I grab one of these.0 0
I've been wanting to smoke the Hyde Park for a few months now. Finally got around to ordering a 5-Pack. The cigar looks very nice with the dark, Maduro wrapper that wasn't as oily as I expected. The cigar fired right up and stayed well lit throughout. The draw was a little tough with a bit too much resistance. It was more mild (kind of blah) in the 1st third. But the flavor kept getting better as I worked into the middle and final third. The wrapper left a nice sweet taste on my lips. There were some hints of spice in the last half. Especially during a retro-hale. I tried to "loosen" up the cigar to get a better draw, but only helped a little. Overall, I'd smoke this one again. Paired it with a glass of 40 Creek Whisky.0 0
I picked up a five pack of these a while back and I do have to say DAMN!!!!! this past Saturday night a friend of mine enjoyed one of these as I did. These smokes we had came from my bag and were the same. He used a bullet punch and began smoking sooner than I. He complained of a difficult draw but rejoiced over the flavors he was getting. His burnt well and he ended up with almost a 3 1/2" ash. Mine,, well damn! i cut mine and lit it and DAMN! this has got to be the best cigar I have smoked so far in my short time smoking. I would highly recommend this cigar to anyone that loves a med. smoke. great burn, great ash, and yes,,,, I burnt the fingers before I had to let it go. I would have to give this cigar a seven on a scale of one to ten. WELL WORTH THE MONEY FOR A FIVE PACK!! I will be getting more of these.0 0
