Review Notes: Lots of inconsistent reviews for these. All I can write is my box of cigars arrived dry and "lifeless" and took nearly a year to be ready for firing. The one I fired Saturday had a nice shiny light brown wrapper, felt heavier than your average robusto, and smelled nice and tobacco-ey. The burn was razor sharp and slow. Draw was perfect. Flavors of creamy roasted nuts, some earth, and wood were apparent. Mostly medium bodied, but snuck into full at times especially at the finish. Make sure yours are ready before firing. I think many of you are rushing to smoke "green" cigars, hence the inconsistent reviews with these. Nothing mindblowing but these are nice and can be had cheaply @ $2.50 a throw. A good everyday cigar.

Review Notes: A solid cigar. Razor sharp burn and perfect draw. Appearance is a bit inconsistent but who really cares about that? Body is med. to full just the way I like it. Flavor is a nice combination of very subtle wood, spice, nuts, and earth with a slight creamy sweet tobacco as the underlying base. Nothing mindblowing, just nice. The body to me is suprisingly more full than what I originally thought. This stick burned nice and slow for me last night lasting almost 2 hours. I have been aging these guys for 7 months now. I must write that the box I bought took quite a while (5 months) to reach the "good" to smoke level from the gauge. Don't rush to smoke these unless aged properly. Also, smoke them slowly to get the full flavor profile and maximum enjoyment. I paid $2.50/ stick by the box. A ten in value.

Review Notes: Bought a box based upon this sites high recommendation. This is a good smoke period. Nothing to blow you away but it's solid. The draw was perfect. The stick burned wonderfully. Some cosmetic issues with tears and a few holes on the wrapper ( I picked the ugliest stick in the box to smoke first) I do feel they need a bit of aging and will get even better. Flavor was Med to fringe of full ...just my style. Creamy, roasted nutty flavor. Very nice. Buy a box before they get too expensive. Shop this one on the net. One site had a box for $75 another had it for $50. Series F Robusto.
