I'm still fairly new to the cigar world but I fell on my feet with this stick. I have always been a fan of tobacco that gives you something to think about and this certainly keeps you interested. There is a beautifully spicy taste to this cigar, and a pretty even burn. I found that you need to take your time with it or the cigar will bite back with a strong hit if you try to do a Thomas the tank engine impression but if enjoyed with a decent coffee or dark ale it gives a lovely flavour with no bitterness. Only draw back is the caps can be a little bit delicate on the occasional one but a clean cut will solve this. I bought one as a bit of selection and within the first third had already ordered another 5 as a after work smoke. For the price and the taste it can't be knocked at all!

Great burn, beautiful spicy taste whilst remaining clean tasting with no bitterness or harshness

Superb price, and found the construction, burn and draw to be uncompromised compared some cheaper cigars that I've had. As far as smoking experience and flavour went it was good but didn't wow, hence 4 rather than 5 stars. I would buy again but doesn't quite make my top choice list. Will be pleased though if their petit corona that I will be trying soon meets similar standards.

This cigar started out really well. A good even burn, nice construction and a really nice peppery/spicy taste which even a newbie like me could appreciate.
by the half way point it became abit bitter which got progressively worse.
Its worth a punt just for the awesome first half. Hopefully your second half will be better

Also, What Mark Bonner said about relighting them.. One of the best cigars I've come across for this. Consistently good results, no bitterness, or that peppery burn taste that catches the back of your throat.
