Review Notes: Because of some of the negative reviews, I decided to order just one of these sticks from Serious Cigars. The look of this cigar is impressive. The smell of the unlit stick was nice, as was the prelight draw. The construction of my cigar was great, it had an even burn all the way to the nub and a tight but easy draw. I would have liked a little more smoke, but it wasn't bad. The flavor is a little spicey and the finish has a similar taste. Overall, this was an enjoyable experience and I plan to obtain more of these cigars in the future.

Review Notes: I bought a box and smoked them over a nine month period. About half of them were plug or had a bad draw. the other half was great. I have found out the torpedos burn better and are more reliable.

Review Notes: I smoked one of the torpedos on a trip to Phoenix and liked it so I was looking forward to this big beast. Beatiful looking wrapper and apperance. It would not draw..period. My tobacconist gave me a different cigar. Decided next day to try again. This time good draw, lots of smoke but it began immediately to burn badly and no flavor. This is a long cigar to go the distance without something in return. Put out out half way through.

"Absolute Dog Rocket!!"

Review Notes: I got a 5-pack of these from cigarbid.com and had very high expectations. True, it was a beautiful and impressive looking cigar. I have also thouroughly enjoyed all Don Linos I've smoked in the past. However from the time I lit this thing, it had about as much flavor as a Tampa Nugget! About an hour later when I was into the 1/2 way point, there were some fleeting notes of Cameroon, but the finish was completely flat and the flavor never really changed. I take that back...there was NO FLAVOR! This thing tasted like I was smoking a paper bag. The wrapper was completely devoid of any oils and was as I said like a paper bag. The burn was inconsistent, but that could be b/c of the wind and the draw was o.k via my punch hole. I couldn't believe out of all the different cigars I purchased at cigarbid.com, that I paid the most for these and they were the worst. Of course, it is entirely possible that I just got a dud. I still have 4 sticks left, but I don't think I can bring myself to try another one of these for a while. I can't even believe I smoked the whole thing and didn't just throw it out, but I kept thinking it would change for the better. Oh well...You live and you learn. On the positive note, the band was pretty cool.

Review Notes: Lots of hype and this is another one that lives up to it. Out of the gate I'd reccomend two months in the humi. Out of the box, charry, strong start then mellowed into a complex chocolate leather tempo, followed by another blast of of heady flavor half way through and then settled back down. This is a wonderfull way to escape the days drudgery.
