I got these as a promo. I thought they were just some random mellow/mild sticks. They are smooth - and delightful. They are more mellow than heavy hitting full spice sticks, yes. But after a few I realized I underestimated them. Beautiful construction, burn and taste. Dense, slightly tight draw but not restrictive. They burn even and slow. Lots of flavors - sweet and delicious. Not weak but not a smack in the face. They are beyond my price range in general. However they are more complex and flavorful than I first gave them credit for. I would say - wood, spice and powdered sugar. And they are not a sweet cap or anything like that. There is just a very pleasant sweetness in the natural smoke. I ll be adding them to my favorites list even if it s a stretch goal. If you cannot tell I like them a lot - 2 thumbs up.
Overall good construction, burns great and long. Dense pack. I?d say it?s medium strength with mild flavors of wood, cream, and nuts. Not a powerhouse of flavors, but very enjoyable. Very little peppery-zip, if that is your thing. Overall, I?ve really enjoyed this cigar I?ve smoked 5 so far from my box .
I ordered these based on two criteria a great sale price and rave reviews from CA.i was not disappointed but i m not as impressed as CA was..its a bit milder than its portrayed but a tasty smoke overall especially after a few weeks in the humidor.on sale with a ten dollar off coupon i got these for about $4 a stick when buying a box of 20 and id say well worth that price.i would definately buy again if they go back on sale
Interested read on these cigars, but I was expecting a little more strength and flavor from a Esteli tabacco.
