Test drove a couple of these over the festive period. First off take care when cutting the cap as it is small and seems fragile to me. The first one tore. Leaving that on one side I found this cigar to be quite enjoyable. Pleasing bouquet and flavour. Not quite as nice as budget Cuban cigars but enjoyable all the same. Taking price in to account and the fact that they are hand rolled you should give them a try. My only concern is build quality which seems variable.

Good solid construction and excellent wrapper, smooth with no defects at all. Easily lit and quite a light draw the flavours were sweet and nutty. There is little change until the final third whereby a spicy edge accompanied the sweetness. The ash was somewhat 'toothy' but an all round good panetela that provided 40 mins of relaxation. Good value for an excellent price

Like this stick's Honduran brother, this is not bad.
First impression: The cigar was firm to the touch; not a lot of give. It had a mild tobacco aroma.
Upon lighting, I was surprised to find that unlike the blurb on this stick, it had a tight draw that carried on throughout.
The flavour is nice, with a rich tobacco taste and a nutty underscore.
As I moved on to the middle third the taste got a bit stronger and richer. It was augmented by a woody flavour that added to my enjoyment.
Again, the draw was still tight. I had to coax it to keep it going but still had to relight it once.
Going into the final third, the taste remained consistent. I did have a quick moment of dread when I tasted tar - I began to worry it was going to be like the Honduran I smoked yesterday. However, it was gone as quickly as it came.
In conclusion, this is a nice, medium-flavoured stick. Draw is tight, but the flavour is worth the effort. There's an average amount of smoke, and overall this is a decent cigar; certainly worth a try.

I suppose you can't really be too harsh on this cigar given the price. That's why it gets two rather than one. The taste was just like a Dutch cigar.made my mouth feel very dry and just tasted like smoke. Second half got very spongy and I just threw it away as I wasn't enjoying it.

What a pleasant smoke this cigar is, it's the first Nicaraguan cigar I have tried and no regrets. As a returning cigar smoker I was a bit sceptical about this but I found it to be a very mild smoke, just what I was looking for. Anyone new to the world of cigars this is one for you.
