The sweet taste of freedom!

This handmade, long filler cigar from the Philippines was launched in 1998 to commemorate 100 years of Philippine independence.

The combination of Isabella "pais" filler, Isabella binder and Java wrapper gives this popular cigar its smooth,full-bodied, robust flavour.

Smoking an Independencia 1898 is a celebration in itself.

I had this after dinner with a Black coffee and a Jamesons Crested Whiskey. I was very impressed! The wrapper was a tad thin with a few cracks, but nothing major to worry about. This lit first time and was an easy draw with the ash staying on until half way along. I would say this was a mild cigar, very mellow, easy smoke. I could have this as an everyday smoke. I smoked it to the nub and wished it was a Churchill! I have to give this 80/100 because it was so enjoyable, just a shame its not priced more competitively.

My goodness, it took me a long time to add any Filipino cigars to my shopping cart, but I'm very glad I did. This cigar is amazing value for money. It looks inferior sitting next to beautiful and expensive cubans and equivalent new world cigars, something that could be cured almost entirely by having a less cheap tacky looking band. That aside though, it smokes really well. Easy draw, burns perfectly and has loads of flavour. If I were a seasoned smoker I'd go through a list of flavours and attribute them to each third of the cigar, but I'm no so I won't. The /smoking pleasure ratio of this cigar is so good that it would be misleading to knock a star off for the tacky band. 5/5
