Review Notes: Now that I have tried a few of these and the ones I have in the humidor have been there a while, I am starting to like these. That said, it is an aquired taste for sure. If you like Baccarat, you may like these for the price.

"Oddly sweet"

Review Notes: I was not sure what to expect since I had never tried a Don Lino before. These were tucked in the back of a local walk-in himidor, so I thought the shop keeper was keeping them secret or something. Perhaps he was, since this cigar was the type of smoke that you either like or you do not. I did not, but I can be fair to the finer qualities which were present. I liked the slightly veiny texture of this stick and the solid feel of well packed tobaccos. The pre-light aroma was that of cedar and fructose. The burn was even and the draw light and airy. What I did not like was the sweetness of this cigar. It had a Baaccarat flavor to it. Don't get me wrong, i like a flavored smoke now and then, but not when I am expecting a full tobacco flavor. it is like picking up your glass of water to take a sip and finding 7up is in the glass instead. you like 7up, but when you are expecting a cool sip of water and are hit with sugary sweetness, it is off-puting. For the 2 dolar price tag, this would be a smoke that I may try again, but only if I were in the mood for a sweet cigar. I would be curious to see what this stick would be like if had not been in a humidor with other cigars, including flavored sticks. Perhaps it is sensitive to its surroundings over time.
