Review Notes: Wow, this thing is potent, a real muscle cigar and not for the timid. It's the only cigar in years that I had to put out, not because it was bad, but because it was too strong for me. The aroma of the smoke was intoxicating. I'd almost buy it again just to smell that again. You'll want to have a heavy meal before this and a nice strong drink with it. I had neither. I think before I can smoke another one I'll need to let it mellow out for a year or two because I could barely walk after this it. Get me another!

Review Notes: The best Antano I've enjoyed so far. Opens up with the typical nicotine pepper blast, then settles down quickly to a smooth full flavored treat. Heretofore the Consul had the best flavor and enjoyment factor. I bought a box before trying this one from a sampler and only hope they are as good.

Review Notes: These cigars are probrably one of the best values for the money if you want a moderately price cigar, that will knock you out without killing your taste buds. Buy atleast two if you buy singles though I did get a plugged one.

"Smoother with time"

Review Notes: I love a good Nicaraguan maduro, and this is one of the nicer ones I've had. I prefer the Churchill for antano, but this has some of the sweetest, coolest smoke for all of Joya de Nic's lines. Not that it has anything to do with THIS review, but the Celebracion line, well... let's just say it's a great disappointment. ANYHOW, THIS stick has a wonderful pre-light aromna of earth and campfire. Sounds nasty, but when lit, the spices come alive and the taste is a 10 in my book -- 11 if I could go there! Summary? Pros = the taste/ flavor was creamy and silky, literally making my mouth water; the appearance and feel of the maduro leaf was pretty nice - not the best, but above most - with few veigns and a pliable-yet-leathery texture; the body starts medium (at best) but builds, but you can't tell it nearly as much due to the refined smoothness and creamy overtones. Cons = while appearance is grand, the construction wasn't so hot, with uneven burns and tubing-outs (i've been told this is a local term, meaning the filler burns a good inch into the unlit binder + wrap until the air can't get in to keep the stick lit); the value was so-so, as in 'ya get what ya pay for'. All in all, an 8 or 8.5 for me. For the price, I expected more (not that this is expensive, but still), yet for flavor I'd gladly give a 10.

Review Notes: Being that this impressive looking stick is on CAs Top 25, I jumped at the chance to try one. Well...it has promise...but it fell short of its considerable potential. A poor burn hampered my ability to really sample the true flavor profile...not to mention a tight draw. It was nutty, with hints of leather (like a maduro), chocolate and cream...with a touch of spice. Something left me cold and I am not sure what it was...it may have been the feeling of high expectations (and how it underdelivered). Perhaps I will try to age a few and see if I can coax a different outcome...because it surely does seem to have a solid construction and the wrapper is magnificent. Overall...this misses the mark for a premium cigar.
