"Dissapointment"

Review Notes: I tried a few of these after enjoying the belicoso. I was very disappointed in them. The draw was very tight producing little or no smoke. I massaged rigorously to no avail, this is one I will pass on in the future, stick with the belicoso.

Review Notes: Seems from all the reviews on here there are very mixed opinions on this smoke. I got this stick from a box pass nearly a year ago, and the cello was already slightly yellowed upon arrival, leading me to believe that when I grabbed it from the humidor tonight, it had a decent amount of age on it. This cigar is so dark I assumed it to be a maduro before logging on to Top25. The wrapper appeared somewhat hastily applied, with an ugly cap to top it off. It appears to have been subjected to a lack-luster box press, leaving it somewhere between rectangular and diamond in shape. Contrary to reviewers who wrote that their stick was too soft, mine was overly firm. That said, this stick burned almost perfectly, never required a relight or touch-up, and held about 2 inches of ash twice. The first half of the cigar was wonderfully mellow and smooth, but medium bodied, and I really enjoyed it. About halfway in, the flavor changed and it became increasingly strong. Unfortunately, as this occurred, it also began to leave an unwanted aftertaste that I have experienced with other cigars, and which I often describe as "stale tobacco flavor," much like you would get from a cigar that goes out, is left alone for an extended period of time, then is re-torched and smoked. Unfortunately, this drops the cigar to average in my book, and leaves me with a bit of a headache. I would describe this cigar as medium to full in terms of power, as it definitely has a slight nicotine punch that can sneak up on you.

"94? Real good smoke though....."

Review Notes: CA has rated this a 94 supposedly. I have had a few of these over the last couple of years and every one of them has been enjoyable. I have experienced no burn problems or the softness that others have mentioned. I have found this one to burn generly good and have never had to touch up or correct the burn in any way. These are really smooth. I have seen them listed most places as a full bodied smoke but I would have to say med maybe? My friends that smoke only occasionally love these and swear that they are a mild for as smooth as they are. The price on these is also great as you can get a box for under $50

"Pretty Spicy"

Review Notes: This smoke was rich,peppery,and a taste of cedar. The stick was nice looking but very soft to the touch...like a sponge. The draw could have been better and I did have to touch it up but I noticed that the cigar needs to be smoked slowly to prevent a bad burn. I liked it and smoked it to till it started to burn my lips.

"Slow and steady wins the race"

Review Notes: I just finished the last of a 5-pack, smoked over a 3 month period. There have been a number of gripes over draw and construction, and I came to realize my smoking experience varied greatly with the speed at which I smoked. While this is true with every cigar, never has it been so true as with the Onyx Researve. A slow, evenly paced smoke produces a wonderfully aromatic smoke, with perfect burn and satisfying cedar notes. If you aren't painstaikingly prudent in your pacing, however, this is a smoke you might end up throwing away after half a stick.
