"Good but over-rated here"

Review Notes: Construction is good but not impressive, flavor is consistent and meaty but not complex. Fairly one dimensional leather with some lighter underlying notes. I have a box, we'll see how they all work out, but the first one had a pretty tight draw that became more pronouced as it got shorter and downright frustrating by the end. I recented rated a $2.50 Grand Habano Corojo #5 that I would put above this $5 stick in all categories. It's not a bad smoke, but it's much closer to a 7 than an 8, and I don't think it's worthy of the 8.44 rating it has as I write this.

"Hmmm, why the fuss over these?"

Review Notes: Last from a box gifted to me in early '03. Nice draw. Medium body. It has developed some smoothness, as the tart bite from the wrapper has dissipated over time. But what's left is unremarkable. Slightly fruity, mild spice, some earth in the second half. Finish is on the short side. I got a better Brazil wrapped torp from a roller in the Palisades Park Mall. Seriously. These are fine, but uninspiring. I put these in the Gurkha, 5 Vegas "What's all the fuss about?" category.

"Great cigar"

Review Notes: This cigar has been consistently the most enjoyable I've smoked. Although young ones are a bit harsh, some time in the humi (even a couple of weeks) really mellows the cigar and allows for the complex flavors to come through. They're regulars in my humi. Of note, my father in law had 2.5 inches of ashes going before it fell. He liked the cigar so much, I thought he was going to need tweezers to hold the very last of the nub he was still trying to smoke!

"Very good"

Review Notes: An 8.49 average rating out of 104 reviews (as I write my own review) is incredible as it proves just how good and consistent this cigar probably is. I tried 2 Sambas recently and I was thoroughly impressed. I doubt though that I have anything to add that hasn't been written already about this cigar. Very flavorful with an imposing dark appearance, fans of maduros must absolutely love this cigar. Actually my only criticism of it is that as a fan of connecticut shade wrappers the Samba was just a little too bitter sometimes but otherwise it's just an excellent cigar.
