Review Notes: Scores well in Value and Flavor. At $4-ish your going to get a fine tasting mid to full bodied cigar. Nice flavors of coffee and mocha within a straight tobacco base. I had about 2 years of box time at least on this. Make sure you age them at least a year-ish otherwise they can be very grassy and harsh. After a few bad reviews which I can attribute to impatience on my part I have to write that although these are good...They are so comparable to a well aged thick ring Padron Thousand Series that I'd have to say go with the Padron due to it's impeccable construction.

Review Notes: Finally. Nice looks. Nice taste. Mostly medium to fringe of full in body. This stick smoked like a champ...just two minor touch ups. Smoked it to the nub in about an hour and 20 minutes. Gobs of smoke that for a stronger stick smelled suprisingly nice. Flavor comparable to the padron thousand series...a meaty tobacco with some hints of spice and dark mocha. At 4.50 a stick a nice value.

Review Notes: My Snakebit Cigar. When I smoke these either the flavor or the construction is off. The flavor was fine in the last one I smoked over the weekend. However, the rather fragile wrappers on these split six ways from Sunday on me. It was lumpy, messy, and the draw was too loose. That aside, I enjoyed the flavors in this stick. These have a similar flavor profile to the Padron Thousand Series. I have yet to smoke a Camacho Corojo in this size that has it all going for it. The remaining 2 out of the 3 left from the 5 pack have their wrappers cracked already. Even though I posted what would seem to be two "Average" ratings on these I still would recommend them. Just leave the cellophane on but cut the cell. even with the foot. I do this more and more now to help protect fragile wrappers while still allowing the cigar to "breath" moisture better through the foot. Value rating based upon $3.50.

Review Notes: I loved the last stick I smoked in mid November. I liked the torpedo from this line I smoked over the weekend. This toro just had nothing going for it flavor wise. It had been in the box for at least 4 months. Don't get too down on these. Sometimes you get a bad one. I know these can be great. I shall retry soon.

Review Notes: I figured this would be one of those "sacrifice smokes" I would sacrifice smoke this stick to save the others around it. This stick had suffered some major damage in my box as it sat right below the humidor lid oasis and some water leaked onto the cigar. The wrapper was swollen and a torn mess in the middle. Prelight aroma was a nice meaty tobacco. First third was very tasty. Kind of a meaty tobacco flavor with a hint of spice that was nice. I was expecting a disaster in the middle third but she held up nice producing a fuller experience of the flavors mentioned in the first third. The last third was a bit soggy but very enjoyable. The sacrifice smoke turned out to be enjoyable. Overall, an hour and 15 minutes of deep oily gobs of smoke with some very nice spice and meatiness to it that just hit my palate right. Med to full in character. Finish was nice and as mentioned in several review here it did not overpower and linger in a bad way like the RP Edge did. Very impressed with this. Got this as part of a sampler will enter $4.50 for price paid. Truly a great value here.
