An inexpensive yet satisfying cigar. Mild and consistent flavour. Draws easily and burns evenly. Good choice for mid-morning.

I found this budget cigar to be quite coarse, no depth or complexity and a very one dimensional smoke. Very average. I'd favour a machine made Dutch cigar over these I'm afraid. It is a budget cigar but my goodness for (literally) a couple of pounds more one can buy wonderful cigars.

The wrapper was faultless and the stick had a solid feel and construction pre-light. The first 2 thirds were surprisingly sweet and nutty with the final third becoming slightly bitter. Superb white ash and perfect burn led to around 35-40 minutes of good value for money non Cuban experience. I think I do prefer the Cuban cigars but I would recommend this as a really decent smoke on a budget.

I tried a box of these based on the very positive reviews here,and was NOT disappointed.Smooth,nice draw,good flavours,clean tasting,but nutty,earhy,woody,too,I thought--flavoursome,but not at all overpowering,certainly not bitter.If this is an example of Fillipino cigar manufacture,book me my ticket to Manilla now,I'm off on my holidays there!After a memorably awful Rafael Gonzalez,this is a breath of fresh air--er.smoke--oh,you know what I mean!

A phenomenal little stick, lasting a good 50 minutes. Great construction with a razor sharp burn and lots of thick smoke. Stayed cool right to the nib with a lovely spicey woody flavour throughout lasting on the palette until the next draw. Thoroughly enjoyed with a strong coffe this for me is an ideal early afternoon smoke. Highly recommend for the price point!
