Review Notes: The El Rey Del Mundo line remains the single best value in quality Havanas. The kicker is that the quality is excellent, not just good as is the case when most people speak of "value". When young, the Choix Supreme has a very explosive, peppery taste, and seems no better than a Juan Lopez #2 or a similarly spicy cigar. But when matured for even just a year, this cigar really takes off. The flavors are wonderfully complex with "fruity" tastes of raisins, caramel, and roasted cashews. This sweetness is perfectly tempered by a mellow tobacco flavor and general earthy tones. The construction is very good, and even the solid, light grey ash is complex. The wrapper is nothing special, but this is a cigar that is outstanding in many respects; including the price. I am not an expert, but I have been smoking Havanas for over 15 years, and this is definitely one of the best cigars I have smoked. For about $6.50 apiece, it is hard to go wrong with this enjoyable cigar.
