Absolutely amazing cigar. Burns evenly and smoothly from end to end. Very dark rich taste with good smoke and a nice spicy aftertaste. Wa smoking CAO and they?re still amazing, but this is by far my favorite smoke. If you haven?t tried it, TRY IT! Well worth the money.
After these sat in my humidor for couple of weeks they are now much better after a little humidity. Full body..lots of smoke , medium to full strength, good construction and consistent burn line. Pepper, cedar, a little toast, and coffee are what I observed. Great cigar for the price and considering this particular vitola. I?ve smoked the robusto size also and with it you get the full ?explosion ?.
Picked up a box of the Brute on sale. Full bodied from initial light right down to the nub. Burned well throughout the entire cigar. Similar flavor to the LFD Double Ligero and the Inferno 3rd Degree. The Ecuadorian Sumatra Oscurro wrapper seemed somewhat brittle with a punch cut but not enough to dissuade me from buying again. If you like ligero and a strong, hearty, full bodied cigar, I would highly recommend it!
