"Good but not astounding"

Review Notes: Very nice wrapper but the cap split when cutting with a sharp Xicar. The first inch was robustly toasty and grassy, then developed into a very nice, smooth leathery flavor with hints of cocoa over the toastiness. Unfortunately about the halfway point it totally fell apart and turned bland and bitter. From the other reviews it seems this happens to some of the cigars and not to others. I'll try another, as I really wanted to like it (having the same name as my 20+ year old nickname).

Review Notes: I was in JR today and picked up a pair of these for 2 bucks a pop, smoked them both on the drive home. They are nice looking cigars, well rolled, nice caps, filled nicely with tobacco. The burn and draw were flawless. The cigar had a mild-medium body, Some light flavors, I found this one was quite short in the flavor department with Dominican grassy taste. I agree with monkey that the sidestream smoke smelled better than the cigar tasted. I'm not a fan but I did smoke them both down to near the bands. I rated the value based on a 2 dollar price point.

Review Notes: Nice chocolate brown Cameroon wrapper with a few small veins and very minor tooth. The cigar sported a stately black and gold band, large in size with attractive embossing. Well applied cap clipped cleanly with no tearing. Constructed with a firm roll and exhibited an excellent pre-light draw. Lit easily and burned straight and even throughout. Medium bodied with a slightly nutty overtone, the flavor was pleasant with a small amount of spiciness. A large amount of mouth filling smoke billowed dense and white and filled the room with rich tobacco scent. The cigar drew perfectly, not too hard or easy, and the ash was firm and well behaved all the way to the band. Accompanied with a Cappuccino, the Merlin was a fine complement to the cinnamon and rich cream. The finish was measured and pleasant with a slight lingering bite. Appropriate for mid day to evening, the cigar would hold its own with all but the most spicy and heavy foods. Overall this was an excellent cigar that embodied the Excalibur lineís consistency and quality while adding an additional dimension of depth and flavor. Recommended.

Review Notes: I really wanted to like this cigar if for no other reason than the beautiful label and appearance. The first have was great the last half was very bitter. The burn was very good and so was the draw. The smoke had a very good cedery smell. I was very impressed with the smell, but not with the taste. It is such a shame for such a beautiful cigar!

Review Notes: The Merlin is a very good smoke. The camaroon wrapper is tops and the construction is also. I suggest if you like a medi um bodied cigar with a camaroon wrapper you gotta try this one.
