Value Line Honduran #500 Churchill
Value Line Honduran 500 cigars are a smart way to get yourself a top-quality Honduran at a LOW 'everyday cigar' price. Handmade with a blend of choice Honduran longfiller tobaccos at Plasencia's factory in Honduras, the cigars come in THREE wrapper shades: Maduro, Connecticut, and Habano. Thick, creamy smoke draws easily through the cigar with a rich, earthy, medium to full-bodied flavor and aroma. This is a good cigar that will improve even more with age. Try a bundle and taste for yourself.
Out of the bundle i had 4 throw aways bcuz of tight or loose draw, which is pretty good for a bundle cigar.Pre-light this cigar has a good smell, the moist tabacco almost tastes fruity. Fairly tight draw but definately smokeable. It has been in the humi only a few weeks, remains oily and firm. The maduro is not too dark but it really looks flawless for a cheap stick.Upon lighting it, i noticed the good smell didn't carry through in the smoke. The smoke was smooth tight draw and all it was a pleasure to toke. But the flavor was lacking heavily. The smoke was not too thick didn't fill the room or anything but it had a fairly good aroma throughout. The ash was a muttled grey with ugly dark grey rings, but it held solidly. It burned pretty even for the first third no touchups needed at all.After the first third the cigar released a little more flavor the smooth smoke got a little thick and started to tease my pallate with a woody taste. Right about halfway through this stick when i was ready for it to open up it got bitter. The taste began lingering in the back of my throat like a cheap vodka. I don't play this game so i smoked another inch or so and when this didnt cease i put it out. All in all this is a decent smoke for the price, like i said u cant smoke it to a nub, but you get a good rich smoke with a somewhat mild flavor and a smooth but short finish. I won't be stocking up on these but the 10 or so i have left will last me awhile because i wont be smoking them often.
I am willing to share these babies with you, i think there are enough of them...but SHHHHHHHH. others will catch on and make them more expensive...and i'll hunt you down :)
