I've only had a couple of these since I got back into cigar smoking a couple of months ago. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised with them. Easy draw on them, lovely taste and a satisfying amount of smoke to blow out. Not too hot either. I've found the wrapper to be quite well constructed on both the cigars I've smoked, so I don't know if the reviewers were just unlucky, or I was lucky. I would definitely have these again. Not the best cigar I've had, but still a nice, relaxing smoke.
As mentioned in previous reviews, an easy draw which I prefer, the wrapper held tight till the end, but the burn was uneven half way through, the flavour was a little harsh for my tastes, a little better than a Henry Wintermans, it took me a little under 20 minutes to smoke, good for the price but I've found I'm more of a medium to full bodied cigar smoker, again enjoyed the easy draw but that's about it
agree with the previous reviews about the wrapper being a bit shoddy on this one,and the draw being a bit on the easy side I think its because they feel a bit underfilled,however I enjoyed the flavour,sort of a slightly one dimensional spice that improves the longer you smoke it and complements the slight bitterness in a way I wasn't expecting,its probably a 3star smoke but for the price I give it 4
Lovely smoke on a sunny afternoon with espresso and a single malt. I decided to give these a whirl as a budget alternative to the beautiful but pricey Cohiba robustos at three times the cost and The ash held for a good inch, twice, before the burn became a little uneven in the final third, possibly due to me putting it down for a few minutes to go and refill my glass. I'd been a little dubious at first as the cut was a little flakey, but the wrapper held well right down to the final two inches. The predominant flavour notes were grassy and earthy, lots of pleasant-smelling smoke and no bitterness or overheating even towards the finish. Yes, the draw is very easy, which might take some by surprise, but if treated with respect this is a very rewarding 45 minute experience. I'll be stocking up.
May have been an unlucky cigar but this cigar was one of the worst I have had, it was lightly packed, had a draw with zero resistance (I understand people may like that but not so much for me) slight unravveling near the cap had to relight twice and as mentioned with the light pack the filler seemed to split down the middle and have only half the cigar burning, the rich flavours did redeem it but the other features made it unsmokable and after trying my best to hang on I gave up halfway, I am really hoping that I had a bad cigar as the price is reasonable and the flavours were good as the construction held but it quickly went downhill for me and until I hear enough otherwise I won't be purchasing anymore.
