Review Notes: So I had a nice Perdomo cameroon the other day, and maybe I'm comparing too much here, but this was a very average smoke. Appearance was fine- attractive packaging and good looking wrapper, however the cedar lining coverd a tear in the wrapper. Construction was ok: the burn was a bit off, but the draw was good. Flavor is where I had some problems though: this was so bland. The guy at my smoke shop told me he really enjoyed these and that they used to be all he smoked. I wasn't totally sold on it, but I bought one to give it a shot. Anyway it was mostly leathery woody flavors, but very subdued. There were notes of spice- paprika maybe?- and an occasional faint hint of vanilla or creaminess. On the whole, VERY bland. I kept thinking, "who smokes these?!" All I could come up with is that they must have huge company bashes where they sell boxes to the mostly drunk employees. Value: Had this been $2 I'd be fine with it, but when I can buy Padrons, Toranos, Romeos, even Griffin's for what I paid I just don't think it's a good buy. I see a few reviews here rating these higher then I will, so maybe I'll try another sometime. Unfortunately, it will be sometime untill I try one again though.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (7) No (11)
