"Great Value Maduro"

Review Notes: I haven't had the pleasure in a while so I took a couple of the grand torpedoes home. This cigar has a nice presentation right off with the large cedar sleeve and prominent band. The smell was yummy with mocha and chocolate notes on the dry draw. The density of the second stick I smoked was definitely on the firm side although being maintained at , or near,70% it remained squeezable. The wrapper looked extremely dark and rich yet largely matte. All in all I was impressed prior to lighting with my trusty Blue Rhino Triple flame job. After lighting I immediately noticed this one was, in fact, a bit dense as it required some more trimming on the business end to open it up. The extra opening definitely helped, but it remained a tighter draw until later in the session. Tastes, well, the cigar had a slightly sweet chocolately note that combined with a nice cedary and tobacco blended body. There was a bit of spice to go along with the flavors, but the spice was on the light side in keeping with a very blended smoothness. As it progressed the spice only showed up if drawn at a greater concentration as the other flavors remained constant. The aftertaste was short and clean, in fact it is about the least aftertaste in a medium body stick I can recall. It's very different than the AF Sungrown Chateau, another stick I like, where the aftertaste lingers for hours after smoking if not abated with strong food and/or drink. I paired it with a nice Ancient Ancient Age and Coke playing up the sweetness instead of conterpointing it. I must say the pairing was quite enjoyable for a late night cap. This cigar is one of the easiest to smoke sticks for anyone. It should be recommended especially for those newer smokers who are, for some strange reason, thinking maduros will be too strong and stick with Connecticutt Shade wrapped smokes. It is a game changer at both price and smoothness and will, likely, convince novices to go forward with more maduro experimentation. Yes, it isn't a particularly complex smoke and if one seeks a bold complex stick I'd say go for a Padron regular line maduro which are hard to beat for that tastes. No, it can't replace a Padron 1926 or 1964 in any shape, form, or fashion...But, it acquits itself very well indeed in the realm of medium bodied maduros with an "off the chart" smoothness and clean finish. This stick has earned my respect for both value and smoothness, highly recommended in that sphere!

Review Notes: Great construction, appearance, and draw. This cigar starts out great but the flavor remains fairly constant from start to finish. For the price it's hard to beat but I'm looking for a more complex smoke.

Review Notes: A very nice Maduro. Got a couple of them at the new store in Little Havana and came back for a box before returning to Washington. A nice sweet taste with no after taste. I highly recommend this cigar!

"Must Have in Humidor"

Review Notes: I am a big fan of Mr Sanchez from his La Tradicion de Cuba churchill line. When I learned about these pyramids, I had to try them. Immediately after smoking the first one upon its arrival, I thought it was certainly the best value cigar I had ever tasted. It has a tremendous draw, good chocolate taste that becomes more earthy towards the end. I think it lacks the complexity of a world class cigar, but it still has the best value of any cigar I have tasted, and moreso I always have 25+ of these in my humidor and frequently send boxes to my friends who are new cigar smokers (ages 27 and under).
