Cigars and cigar manufacturers come and go, but Chin Alvarez is here to stay. A relative of the Olivas, he patiently oversees the manufacture of Value Line Nicaraguan 400 cigars in his Estelí factory. The cigars offer a lip-smacking, gum-tingling smoke chock full of unique Corojo sweetness. Beneath the dark wrapper is a full-bodied blend of Nicaraguan longfillers. Mexican binders add an earthy twang to the mix, for a smoke can't possibly be this affordable...but it is! Smoke big for less coin!
Everything they claim and more. The churchill is a great hour of power cigar, beautiful long ash with gobs and gobs of flavor .The only issue I had was a couple *minor* uneven burn spots that settled themselves out nicely.I've paid LOT$!!! more money for a lot less for sure.
A very good smoke, tasty, long lasting, comfortable smoke and an even burn.
Cant beat this for the price, does not disapoint
I bought these based on other reviews, and I was very disappointed. Although the flavor was there, and I rate it an 80 for flavor, the construction and condition of the cigars was terrible. The cigars arrived in 2 days, but the wrappers were so dried they literally came off when touched. I smoked a couple of these with the binder completely exposed from the middle of the cigar down to the foot. Most had to be tossed. I would light them, take a couple of puffs, and the whole thing would start exploding on me.
