I bought one of these for a lunchtime smoke. It had been recommended to me by a friend who assured me I'd get through it in about 30-45 minutes. It took me just over 40 minutes to get down to the last inch, If I'd smoked a little more slowly, I think I'd have got nearly an hour out of it. I can honestly say that this really was creamy and went perfectly with an extra strong cappuccino. It got creamier in the 2nd third and then became a bit more sharp in the last third. In my opinion, they go great with a nice cup of coffee. I smoked it outside in a park and the ash held until it was about 1 1/2 inches. I'm definitely getting more of these.

Hmm, what to say, well, very good. Quite floral at first before finding a shallow but satisfying mix of Cedar and leather. Burn was a bit erratic but I think this was down to quite loose packing, maybe a Friday afternoon effort. A nice cigar, didn't make me go wow but not a lot to criticise about it. I got the occasional hint of something special but just not enough of it. Very enjoyable, perhaps another example may get me a bit more effusive. Who knows, that's the joy of cigars.

This cigar was recommended to me yesterday for my "birthday smoke", and I must admit it was wonderful. I have not smoked many cuban's and the ones I have were too strong for me but the Epicure Especial is "just right". No problem with the lighting up, smooth easy draw with even burn and a very pleasant taste. All in all, this is a mild cigar but mild in a cuban is like medium in other cigars I have tried and for me this was perfect. Highly recommended.

Will be buying again, im new to cigar smoking so thought this may be a good starting point. They are well constructed and low maintaince when lit. The ash holds for 2inches+. The flavours start out mild and creamywith a hint of sweetness. Then develops into a more complex smoke full of light leathery notes and sweet cedar. The final third improves on this and a sweet salty caramel flavour coats the inside of your mouth. I smoked it right down to the last inch and was very reluctant to stubb it when it started burning my lips

Constuction looks superb, and has a nice and easy draw. It is mild and creamy, with plentiful of smoke. That lasts about an 1 half hours or so. Absolutely great cigar!
