Review Notes: I was in search for a nice inexpensive cigar that I wouldn't be ashamed to hand out or smoke on occasion. I usually pay between $5-9 for a cigar and usually not disappointed. This cigar was 2.99 and looked really nice. It had a nice dark wrapper, and looked better than $3. It lit easily and had a great ash that held on for a little over an inch. The taste, however, was very poor. At first puff I thought I found a nice cheap smoke. It was fairly spicy and had a nice sweet after taste. It was on the mild side for me but I thought it was going okay. After the first few puffs or so it lost any spice it originally had and developed a bland flavor, albeit still sweet. Soon thereafter it developed a nasty aftertaste that I can only compare to battery acid. I was hoping that it would go away but it lingered on for the rest of the smoke. I put it out with about an inch and a half left, which is quite impressive for me considering I usually smoke a cigar to the nub (less than half an inch). Overall it tasted like a $3 smoke. Maybe it is the Mexican tobacco, the only other cigar I've had with Mexican tobacco was a Big Butt and that was horrible as well. For $4.79 I picked up a CAO Mx2 and for a little less I can get a HDM Dark Sumatra, these two cigars are worth much more than their stickers.
