I bought a Valiente as part of a Famous robusto sampler. I was very impressed with this smoke: I found mine to be very complex, with hints of nuts, coffee, and cocoa. Definitely the type of cigar for a contemplative mood when you have the time to think about the tastes and smells. I'm sold! This may become my standard robusto.
I received this cigar in a sampler and took it for a spin. First the good points. I was very impressed with this cigar's construction. The construction was excellent and it did burn very evenly. The draw was solid as well. Bad part.....there was no flavor. It was damn near flavorless. Very disappointing. I would pass this up even if you receive it in a sampler.
