I've heard a lot of the trash talking when it comes to Mexican cigars, so to get to the bottom of it all I ordered some. When I first looked at the cigar it looked rolled by an amateur. The colour was very inconsistent, and the cigar looked to have knots in it. The cigar was actually kind of lumpy. Then I actually lit the cigar up and all the lies and trash talking went up in smoke. From the first draw I was hooked. The cigar looked ugly, but it tasted damn fine. Nice, medium, smooth, with a little pepper here and there. Haters can hate, but this is one fine cigar that will find a home in my humidor.

I suppose their worth a bit over a buck, but not by much. Construction only fair. Feel firm unlit but once I start smoking, they got quite soft. Draw was reasonable; a bit tight. Mild/medium body with little strength. Bitter metallic taste toward the end. I try to smoke economically but would rather pay double the price for a bit more satisfaction and enjoyment from a smoke. When I finish, it leaves me still wanting a cigar. Won t be a re-purchase.
