Review Notes: The draw was far too tight. I felt like I was fighting it for the first 2/3 of the cigar. Then i gave up on it. I tried so hard to draw smoke I couldn't enjoy the flavor.

"CAO Criollo"

Review Notes: Loved it. The aroma after I lit it was so nice. The draw was very easy the whole way through as was the burn. Through the 1st 1/3 the flavor was peppery with a touch of sweetness. Mid way through was the best though. It mellowed out and was so smooth and relaxing. I was very impressed. The final third was powerful, strong and I was in heaven. Smoked it until my fingers started to burn. Definitely going to pick up some more of these sticks.

"I expected more"

Review Notes: Looked good, with a splotchy wrapper, but solid construction and a cute pigtail cap. Clipped and lit and got great flavors of spice and sweet leathery, peppery notes. Draw was a little bit tight, had to double puff sometimes to get enough smoke. Construction was great, other than the tight draw. Didn't even need a single touch-up. Like I said, the flavors were great, they just weren't intense enough for me and it lost steam in the 2nd half, turning a bit bland until the end where it became charry, tarry, and a little bitter (which may have been due to the tight draw). Overall, not bad, but I wo't be buying a box anytime soon. Maybe I will age a couple and see how they turn out, since I love the corona gorda size.

"Time Helps"

Review Notes: Complex and smooth this Mancha, delivered much more than when I reviewed it 14 months ago. It can stand alone, but is also good with an adult beverage. I smoked this one with the black dogs around the campfire with a good "sippin whiskey". It had an excellent burn, and for some reason this stick is always the most humid cigar in my humidor, its like a sponge regardless of the location or length of time in the box. Still they need about a year of age to morph into a pretty good cigar.
