Must of the cigars in the market can t withstand cold weather. Some get cracked or unwrapped. This cigars, Onyx, is well constructed and can withstand extreme cold weather without getting down. Is surprisingly excellent.
Onyx reserve are full of flavor and burn well and long. They are full bodied and super rich. A wonderful smoke at an unbeatable price. One of my favorite cigars. If you are looking for a full bodies rich cigar with notes of leather chocolate, a caramel- like sweet background and a medium pepper you will love this one.
Had two of these in one of my Humidors for about 6 months and finally decided to light one off.The build of this cigar is 1st rate and just asks you to take the next step.I V cut her and the cold draw was very nice; toasting the foot was routine and the initial burn was right on.First draw gave me a mild slap in the face with some heavy earthiness and a nice spice kick but not vicious by any means.It settled down after the 1st inch and then I knew I had to be sitting in a nice chair with some Bourbon to help offset the Onyx s sneak attack.This girl has some kick and though enjoyable, you better not be using machinery or driving.It was solid all the way to the nub where it kicked up a bit more spice but nothing I would shudder at.A very good smoke and I am upset I didn t light one of these off sometime ago.I ordered a five pack of the Onyx to become a stable mate to my No. 9s which are also big hitters.the price no one can argue with.You owe yourself a night or two with these girls.
There are some cigars that taste better with rest but this cigar is one of the best out there. I have 2 boxes that are almost 4 years old and they are amazing. Treat yourself to a well rested cigar and at this price you can afford to leave 2 boxes aging.
A pretty tasty cigar for the price. Spicy, peppery flavors. I was annoyed at how tightly rolled one of the cigars was but a slight bite on the head and I was good to go.
I was searching for a maduro and liked the reviews for this cigar. I usually smoke Punch After Dinners. The appearance was excelleant. Draw was very good. The flovor was a nice mix of expresso and spice at the end. No off tastes, either. I would rate this equal to or slightly better than, the Punch.
sometimes the roll is way to tight bad draw but when good the cigar is awesome.
The Onyx Reserve is a goodbaseline cigar from which to judge the other great ones from. Better than the Punch Elite, not as good as a Padron' or a Rocky Patel. A 90 or A- Cigar. I bought a box of these and I was happy with them but not overly elated. They are a great place for a person who likes Maduro's to start from. I like them; never the less, no matter what the shape, color, or brand, never forget, that in the end the best reviewer is Yourself.
All ONYX cigars are an excellant smoke, especelly the reserve #2 torpedo!!! This is definitely a quality cigar. Famous-Smoke delivered them FRESH and QUICK! They have a wonderful taste, draw, burn, etc. etc....I will be sure to always have them in my humidors in the future. BTW - The ONYX Churchill is also an awesome smoke!!!
