Looking to get a highly touted product at a low price, then Te Amo is really what you are looking for. The best quality tobaccos are being used to create a Te Amo smoke that is seen in all of their cigars. These are all completely hand-crafted with the most exceptionally- skilled torcedors.
I ve read a lot of bad reviews on this cigar. None said a bad word about construction though. Great construction and good draw despite being a firmly packed stick. I got more than earth and pepper. It s a mild cigar but has some complexity. I hate to seem stereotypical but I really enjoyed it after a spicy meal. I will buy again. It burns a little hot at the end but I still smoked it to the nub.
I bought this one before I learned how to find what I like. This was an excellent cigar, just not for me. I like one that'll set me back in the chair and make me wait for the next puff. This cigar I smoked without noticing it. Also, this one had no flavor that I could detect but pepper. It's finely made. Obviously the mildness and pepper are intentional. Someone loves these. I'll never buy another. I'll rate it low on flavor, as strength is not one of the categories. (FaSMoSho - you must help us find the right flavor AND strength - if not you're wasting our time)
I bought a 5 pack sampler. May have gotten a bad bunch. It's smokes, but I wouldn't give this cigar as a gift to anyone. Hard draw, and an average at best taste. Not bad, but I've smoked much better. At this price point you can do better. Just my opinion, I don't like being super critical with cigars. Even an average cigar can be enjoyable, this one was borderline...
I bought a single to try a mexican cuz it was cheap. I really enjoyed this cigar, decent taste, nice draw and even burn, very enjoyable, especially after the onyx belicoso #2 that I fought with last night. I smoke Cigars to relax and enjoy them, not to fight with to keep lit and burning evenly. The taste on the Te Amo is not by any means the best, but its just as good as some of the overpriced sticks that I've tried at 2-3 times the price.
