Review Notes: This cigar was a nice looking cigar. It had a nice wrapper and a good looking box press. As it smoked it had a burn that was not great but the flavor was hard to deal with. It had a real harsh, cheap taste and the main flavor was of manure. It had some other notes of cocoa and spice but in my experience way overpowered by the harsh manure taste, or what i assume a cow pie would taste like.

Review Notes: Been smoking mostly cubans for over 15 years now, but I always thought non cubans can be as good given the cuban populous in the usa and south america. I find this cigar to be great. But the draw is definetly the worst part of the experience. I have smoked 10s of boxes because I like the tast a lot, but, I usually have to throw about 80% of them out due to a beyond poor draw, from very tight to completely plugged. Over the holidays I decided to hit the research trail and look for another, maybe even better, cigar. I already discovered a couple (Joya di Nicaragua and Oliva serie V both both in churchill. I also ordered some La Tradcion Cubana and the 2 cigars made by Island Smoke Shop of Key Largo Florida. In in a nuthshell, don't waste your money or your experience. If they want your business they should care a lot more about you.

"Average smoke"

Review Notes: I was a little apprehensive about this stick after reading some of the reviews. I was expecting a nasty smoke. I found it to be a spicy note with a little vanilla nutty taste about half way through. I did not experience any construction problems and it burned nice and even throughout. I probably would not rate this as one of my favorites but just an average smoke.

"What the...Did a cow have too much fiber?!"

Review Notes: I saw CA's top 25 list, of which this line (mind you epicure No 1) is rated the 10th best cigar of '05. I know that brands do not always have similar- scoring sticks across one run versus another... case in point is Joya de Nicaragua's Antano - awesome - versus Celebration - not so great... but this takes the cake. Note that I didn't ever try, and likely never will try, the Epicure No.1 If you can suffer through the first 2/3rds to 3/4ths of this, the flavor gets better, to one of whale dung at the bottom of the ocean with those lovely sea salt bitter tastes that make your mouth pucker and your voice exclaim 'eww'. Yes, it really is THAT bad, and the sea salt flavor does not make up for the literal taste of, well... dung and manure with lovely undertones of plain ol' ... Well, you get the point without me risking an impropper post here. I have smoked some real dogs in the past, and have said that they "taste like manure" but that was a figure of speach. Here? It really, seriously, literally, does taste like it was removed from the anal orifice of a bovine who consumed too much fiber. Maybe a sewage treatment plant operator would care for this, or a farmer who milks his cows while seated behind the cow, but I would advise never suffering through this thing. Sure, it looks great pre-burn, but I like to *smoke* the cigar, not just sit it down and look at it. The construction was just barely above that of a Phillies Blunt (machine rolled in a brown-shopping bag, or so it seems). I could rant more, but I feel you have been aptly warned. For the record, I have NO clue why I smoked this to the band - perchance I was waiting for it to get better, or perhaps it was the chase it took to find this cigar.

"Construction problems again"

Review Notes: This long and severely pressed cigar has a dark, streaky wrapper and looks real good. The draw is rather firm producing a wispy amount of smoke, the burn is uneven, and it needs plenty of relighting; in fact, all the cigars that I've tried in this line have been consistently inconsistent performers. This was a medium-bodied smoke with a pleasant cocoa flavor and a light spiciness, curiously not as strong as the other sizes. The taste isn't that bad, but the burn and draw problems continue to plague this line.
