The SLR Rothchilde Maduro is my regular smoke. You can t beat the value if you like a full-bodied cigar in this size range. I would not recommend this smoke to an inexperienced cigar smoker - at the least, make sure you have a full stomach ahead of time. My only issue with them is inconsistency in build quality. Even within the same box you can often visibly see some cigars have a bigger gauge than the 54 which is advertised. Draw quality is almost always very good and I rarely have any burn consistency issues maybe 1 cigar out of 3 boxes, if that . For the price though, it s hard to complain at all.
The SLRs are an amazing value. Yes, you ll occasionally get a plugged one, or one that burns uneven, but for the price it s almost excusable. If you like dark, strong smokes I recommend trying these. If you re not a regular cigar smoker, make sure you eat first because they pack a punch, especially the maduro. My one serious complaint is the ring gauge consistency. Some batches are noticeably closer to 52 or 56 than the advertised 54.
I tried these over the summer at the request of a friend. I was not disappointed. I tried the Rothchild Robusto and love the 5x54 size. The Maduro is outstanding. At first lite you get notes of black pepper and a little coffee. Then past the first third you settle into the chocolates dark and rich with more coffee flavors. The burn is very consistant with very little touch ups needed. Truly a great smoke for the money. Can t wait to try the Habano Natural.
Beautiful cigar, excellent draw, burns consistently with no touch up. Most definitely a pleasure smoking this stick.
I first tried these months ago on the word of a friend. I was pleasantly surprised. I love the size of the Robusto 5x54 was perfect. The burn was pretty good with very few touch ups. The strength was was a little strong at times but real good. The flavor was outstanding, first light gets you a nice black pepper flavor. Get past the first third and you will taste the flavors of coffee and chocolate with some dark chocolate flavor. Then at the end you get expresso and chocolate. Over all a great stick and I will be keeping them in my humidor as they are hard to find.
My favorite from a long time ago. Went away for awhile got redone, as good as ever. Keep them in stock.
So well built. Love the taste, construction and burn. Even my wife and friends love the smell.
I have no idea where the bad reviews are coming from. I smoked and shared with four friends and we loved them. I did catch them at an excellent price on sale. I am about to smoke one now to see if anything has changed from 4 months ago but for now here are my ratings.
I tried and tried but could find nothing wrong with this cigar.So you know what this means now right.I m afraid I m just gonna have to order another box.Then another after that.Then another after that. And just keep going.Damn.
