Review Notes: Summary: If you guys got $60.00 and are an experienced smoker, get a box of these from Bonita Smoke Shop. Cheapest place that I've found and their customer service is the greatest. Anyway let's get down to the nitty gritty shall we? Packaging: Beautiful. A nice boxed presentation, and a very nice band. You can tell that Joya de Nicaragua really took the time out to package these babies. They look intimidating, and smoking these puros are nothing short from it. Nice and neat that truly reflects a true master cigar maker. Construction: The wrapper is really nice and shiney with an oily look to it. Deep dark wrapper and a really nice roll that is even throughout the entire cigar. It's a really solid stick, not vainy and very smooth and consistent throughout. Strength and Flavor: Extremely Powerful. This is not a smoke for a beginner, you need to train yourself up before getting into these. Some of the previous guys may have gotten an odd stick, because I've smoked three of these so far from the same box and they were all consistently strong. The flavor however, remained the same with each one. Very strong from start to finish with the power coming on with each succeeding draw. Take your time if you're unsure of your tolerance, these babies are really really strong. The ending will truly make an end of you if you're not experienced. The flavors were a bit confusing to me. I couldn't really decipher what my tongue was trying to tell my brain. It is definitely very peppery, lots of tar with every hit. It is also very hot, and has that trademark taste of a fine young Nicaragua tobacco. For those of you who didn't get what I had just said, the start of this cigar is like the mid to ending point of a good AVO. And it keeps getting strong and stronger throughout the cigar with a very unique and complex taste like nothing I have had before. For those who truly appreciate a strong, full bodied cigar, this is one that you must try. If you're a beginner, I give you fair warning that this cigar will turn you inside out. A great cigar, but I think more time in the "training box" will tame this beast a bit more and allow it settle. Overall: This cigar is extremely well made and is a very fine smoke. I would rather smoke a La Gloria Cubana Serie R Maduro #6, which by my experience, is much stronger but is much more flavorful and finely aged. But this Gran Consul is a must have for the humidor. With a little more time in the humidor, this will be a contender.

Review Notes: Short and stumpy, this is kind of an akward cigar. Mine was sitting in the humidor for a while, so I didnt have the problems with the young taste many others have had. Fuller cigar with some good kick to it. Had some burn problems midway through.

Review Notes: Got 2 free with a box purchase. let em rest about a month, smoked the first today. Started out mild, young, with confusing flavors. By the midway mark, this was one hell of a powerful lil fella. The flavors seemed to open up and definite cedar, pepper, and leather takes over. The finish was long lasting. Burned a bit crooked but worth it in the long run. It's cheap so I ordered a box before I was completely done. You may want to do the same.

"Glue"

Review Notes: These taste young. Almost glue like taste that plagues many young cigars. Other than that, they are well constructed, burn well, and have a nice appearance. Cheap too. I didn't find these as strong as many have hyped them to be. They are fairly robust, but I can think of many stronger non cuban cigars out there. They really lack in flavor or complexity.

Review Notes: Firmly constructed and a white ash consistent with a slow even burn. Robustly tasting of roasted walnut & almond with a hint of cherry. Savored long after last draw. One of a few set-time-aside cigars.
