I did not like the MADURO at first. It burned right up the side, so had to keep burning it off. Lots of waist. But the flavor grew on me. By the third stick, I was hooked and have bought several since then and will continue to. I suppose it depends on who is doing the rolling because some bundles are good, but only just. Others run right up the side, and I don t need to tell any of you how frustrating that is. Regardless, the Maduro is worth every cent. I just now ordered naturals which I rarely buy in any cigar so I m looking forward to that. For the most part, Schitzos have become my daily dash, without the outlay of cash.
Even burn, good draw, medium tasting. . Overall I like it.
I ve tried the robusto and they burn well, no tunnelling, nice white ash, taste is mild and produce a good puff of smoke. These are not the best on the market, but they are a satisfying relaxing smoke, you can enjoy with coffee or any other beverage of choice. Don t be frightened by the label, it will drive you crazy if you try to figure it out.... hence the name? I think the artwork is great - i love it.
Though I tend to shy away from such fat cigars, I have smoked smaller Schizos before and this one did not disappoint. Band artwork aside, this is a good bargain priced stick for experienced smokers who know a good value with a consistent flavor throughout that I happen to really like. Draw and burn are above average. Construction could have been a little better because I had an unwrap upon clipping the end but I just kept the band on and this was not an issue and it could have been caused by the cigar not fitting into my cutter properly. A great bargain priced brand that makes a regular rotation in my humidor.
Received one in a test pack... I was surprised at how smooth and tasty this was... I am going to make this a golf smoke and have some for on hand all of time... I would highly recommend this one, I wasn't expecting anything from this price range... If you like a mellow cig, get some... I usually but Torano and RP...
i baught a bundle of the cigars and they are great i have smoke 5 so far and burn slow and great draw great taste you just need an hour to smoke them they wont disapoint you at all nice cool white ash no cons at all and i will buy them again and again
The cigar starts a little strong but mellows out after 3 - 5 minutes. I love the big draw of 70 and 80 gauge cigars so this one comes out of the gate strong for me. For the price it rivals the Asylum stuff costing 2-3 times more. Always a nice easy draw, it holds together okay, but it could be a little more well built. Still, for the price, it doesn t exactly fall apart. Also not the most even burning cigar, but not really any worse than higher end 70s and 80s. This cigar is a winner. I think the consistency is great and it is an attention grabbing smoke. I am hooked and always have some in my humidors.
This cigar is a cuban sandwich , which means it incorporates both short and long filler. I am pleasantly surprised with this cigar. It is better than expected.The wrapper appears to be high quality - clean, smooth, evenly colored. These cigars smell rich. The roll looks a bit uneven, and it feels spongy. Some of the cigar bands are loose and slide off very easily.Cutting the cigar is effortless. The first inch of burn was a bit uneven, but the ash is very light gray and holds well. The taste started out sweet for most of the first 1/3, with some indistinguishable flavors. The taste changed somewhat randomly in the 2/3. It became bitter and varnishy, then turned into a musky, throaty, woodsy flavor. Some of the short filler tobacco fell out of the head. It was not much, only about a thimble-full.Towards the end of the 2/3 into the final 3/3, the cigar again changed, this time into a creamy musky flavor. The burn for the entire 2/3-3/3 was very even and did not require touch-ups. The ash was very light gray and the wrapper ash had very little cracking.These cigars live up to their name, Schizo ... they re all over the place. I m going to buy a mazo of these and age them. I have a very strong feeling that they are going to sing loudly in about 6 months.
In the land of lower cost cigars the Schizo represents quite well. Had to make 1 burn correction about a quarter of the way in but nothing major. Very well made in appearance/construction for a stick at this price point with consistent flavor. Burned a tad hotter than some but that could have been this particular cigar. Excellent draw. I would for sure purchase one of these again.
It s very mild. For the money, it s a fantastic everyday smoke.
I wasn t sure about these at first, but they sounded good and the price was right. I m glad I took the plunge to try them. They are very nicely rolled cigars. They look great, they are nice and tightly wrapped. They smell great, out of the cellophane. Everything you would expect in a high quality cigar.I will say, you must be careful when you light these. The first one I light I torched too hard and got a very nasty burnt taste for the first few minutes of smoking. That was my fault, not the cigars. I ve smoked several more of these since then and have never had that issue again as I m more careful not to overdo it when I light them. Again, my fault not the cigars.The taste is good, not excellent but still good. Draw and burn have been nice and consistent. All of the once I ve smoked so far have been constructed very well also. I ll be buying more of these. These will likely become my new fishing, yard work, etc etc cigar as they are a great smoke, but they are still cheap enough that if something happens to stick while you re doing something you won t mind too much.
