This has been my favourite cigar of its size by far, such good construction and absolutely beautiful burn. Such thick smoke and consistent taste throughout, I am really considering buying a box of these. Very high recommendations from me!

Just tried this tonight. It's a 10-15 mins smoke but I usually like to chill so I got about 40 mins out of it. Surprisingly even burn and taste for such a small cigar. Draw is fine but gets a bit tight at the end. It would be a pleasant smoke overall, however I like milder ones. I found this to be a bit too plain. Peppery and woody all the way. Some leather hints. The last inch+ became a bit harsh doe to size. Good value for the price though not my cup of tea. It's worth a shot.

For me this was a lovely morning coffee smoke. The flavours I got we're nutty medium flavours, that went really well with a strong drink. Only slight negative for me was the draw at times was a little tight, otherwise a solid 4/5.

I have never had a bad el rey, and this is no exception, a joy from start to finish, plenty of smoke, and even draw. I bought two as a test, will be looking to purchase a box, as I beleive they are good value for money.

As other reviews have said, it had a very nice smell to it. However, what really counts is the comparatively unpleasant taste. I found it very harsh.
