"Nice, but overpriced"

Review Notes: I bought a few of these for my dad, and they are now his favorite cigar. Though they have a near flawless burn when kept at a slightly higher humidity than most shops will tend to keep them, they have a very mild, subtle flavor which was excellent, but really did not synch with my tastes, as I tend to gravitate to more full bodied cigars However, I can see the appeal to a smoker who tends to lean towards the more mild/medium side. This is not a value cigar, you are paying for the fact that this is rare and well aged, not necessarily because of the overwhelming quality, and you need to know that going into it. I would recommend trying one if you have a few extra bucks and you like your cigars on the mild to medium side.

Review Notes: I picked up a box because my favorite b&m had them at 40% off. i loved the 150s, so figured i'd give these a shot. big mistake. it's not a bad cigar, but it's also not a $10 cigar let alone an $18-20 cigar. started mild with very little tase. second third picked up a little coffee and toast taste with a little spice in the background. last third got a little harsh. burned pretty quickly too.

"What a letdown!"

Review Notes: This cigar cost $21 at Perettiís, an old-style tobacconist in downtown Boston. The packaging was opulent, with large cedar chests and boxes covered in multicolored labels. The attractive dark brown wrapper had a slight greenish cast and sported medium veins. The expertly rolled cigar had a round, bullet-nosed head with a lovely triple cap. The filler was predominantly the color of dark coffee grounds with some slightly lighter leaves woven in. The simple crimson and gold band bearing the 160 insignia was applied carelessly, diagonally on the cigar with the ends not aligning squarely. Pre-light aroma was slightly spicy with an alluring mild cinnamon scent, and the flavors from the pre-light draw was mild and dusty with a light mustiness like the air in an old barn. The freshly cut cigar had a smooth and easy draw and took quickly to the match. The initial flavors, for the first inch of the cigar, were flat and harsh. The smoke tasted of burning waxed paper or corrugated cardboard with a patently offensive overtone. More troubling, the finish hit immediately and was irritating with an overall impression of pine pitch and a tenacious tarry cling to it. The cigar burned straight and slow and produced a firm and solid light grey ash with dark ribbons. After a half inch or so either the harshness abated or I grew accustomed to it and some actual tobacco related flavors emerged. Sadly, these flavors were neither complex nor enjoyable. The ash held tightly for almost half of the cigar, curving slightly as the cigar burned. I smoked the cigar on a lovely clear evening in early September, sitting in a park in downtown Boston. Careful rumination could produce hints of flavor, but even halfway through, the abhorrent finish practically obscured any subtleties that might have been present in the blend. The overall impression was of poor quality ligero surrounded by cheap, earthy Mexican filler and wrapped in newsprint. The aroma of the cigar was deceptively light and lyrical with a lovely ambient note. That aroma, the impeccable construction and lovely appearance were the only redeeming qualities of this cigar. Overall this cigar was light in strength and medium in flavor, but had a horrible taste and finish. I would have been better off crumpling up a 20 dollar bill and throwing it out the car window; at least I wouldnít still have this nasty taste in my mouth. Not recommended.

"Great at half the price"

Review Notes: I bought 6 sticks of the Partagas 150 about 6 years ago and I love that cigar. This one is said to have the same wrapper. When I first lit it up I thought I had been ripped off. There was nothing good about it for the first 3rd. Then it turned into a great complex smoke. Very toasty, very nutty. I'm glad I only paid $11 a stick on Cbid. Good cigar, just not priced right.

"At $5, these would be quite a score..."

Review Notes: The "value" grade kind of kills this rating, but it's a nice morning smoke. Cammie toastiness with marzipan-like sweetness on the long finish. The sweetness fades toward the second half, though a nuttiness remains. No smoke is really worth 18 beans, of course, but I was hoping for something unique; I settled for something merely good.
