I got The Siboney in a Alec Bradley sampler and it turns out to be a great smoke the construction is perfect almost looks fake the burn and consistency are very good. The taste is earthy and creamy. My only problem is I am too poor to afford 3 of these a day!!
Got this in Famous Exclusives, Chapter 1 sampler exactly so I could find the diamonds in the rough, and this is one. A very decent smoke for a house brand, construction was a little iffy, but the same happens with the big boys sometimes. If I didn't know ahead of time, I would've guessed it was a "boutique" or national cigar. Very good, esp. for the price!
I lit this one up very shortly upon recieving it. The construction of the stick was up to par with the rest of Alec Bradley'sThe burn and draw were just fine. Here is the but... The flavor was fairly bland for the first third. The flavor definitely intensified in the second third, however it was nothing special. This is especially true when compared to any other AB. The final (thank goodness) third became harsh and bitter, even when not drawn upon ofter nor hard. In conclusion, buy some Overtures or other AB instead.
I really wanted to like this cigar since I'm a big AB fan. The look of the cigar is great and the flavor is very nice for a budget cigar. After getting a couple in a sampler, I thought this would be a goode cigar for an everyday value smoke. About half of those I've smoked so far have burned terrible. I guess that's what you get when you buy a cheap cigar.
After cutting one of these, I noticed something sticking out of the end. I pulled out a thin strip almost like a string of some sort of plastic. Not cool!
I received one in a sampler. I have many high end cigars in my six humidors. I wasLooking though a box for a smoke that would be a "quickie". I saw the wrapper and decided to try the robusto out. A lit it and WOW! I wondered who made it right away. It taste just as good if not better then MANY $200.00 a box cigars. Perfect flavor. I enjoyed it so much, I looked it up online and here I am. AB, I'm not surprised is behind this "secret" stick. If it was rated like the other top brands, it would easily get a 91-93. I'm going to get a bundle RIGHT NOW!
Smooth, unique flavor, medium flavor. The 5x54 Gran Robusto offers a great draw and burn. Will taste even better after some humidor time. Will I be winning more of this blend? Yes. Definitely worth a try.
These are great for the money. I've smoked these every hour of the day (almost) and they always come through. Are they the best cigar ever? No. But I suggest that if you like fuller flavor give these a try.I personally really enjoy them.
