Review Notes: A "sneaky" full bodied 2 hour cigar with some nice changing spice tones. Pretty smooth while smoking, yet when done you know you gave your palate a workout. I've smoked about 7-8 of these from my box and have only experienced one "dud". Construction has been suprisingly excellent for such a stout cigar. At $3.50-ish a throw (by the box) a 10 in value. Reccomended, but not for the mild crowd. Unless you've got the stomach of a goat make sure you eat something first before firing. I like the classic, old school style band too.

Review Notes: Finally got a dud. Construction was a bit off as this cigar had an uneven burn. I had to play catch up with the pocket prince (what a great $5 butane single jet flame lighter...I've had this thing for 8 years) The flavor was non-existent. Just a mundane, slightly harsh, one demensional blah tobaccoo flavor throughout. It never got going past this one demension and I gave it every opportunity to as I smoked it to a near nub. The other cigars I have smoked from this box have been great. Hopefully the only bad stick in the box.

Review Notes: Box time improving balance of power and flavor. I've smoked 3 more since my last review in Sept. If there is a better cigar for the money out there that balances a wonderful flavor with power and flavor nuances right thru to the nub, please email me at sleuthe@adelphia.net. I'd like to try it. The Gran Habano Corojo Robusto #5 is amongst the finest cigars out there today for the $. Glad I bought a box. Not for the beginner. Smoke only after eating unless you've got the stomach of a goat.

Review Notes: Best tasting, smoking (non cuban) cigar I have had so far this year. Nearly 2 and 1/2 months in the box have done wonders to meld flavor and correct smokability. Only drawback was the wrapper. It was veiny and had a small tear in it. The cap was glued on crooked. Who cares.

Review Notes: (for another review) so I had one while watching MNF preseason game between Seattle and Dallas. This stick was much better than the first one. Althogh the flavor was a bit one dimensional it was a cooler nice dimension and didn't have that intense wooden hotness to it. The burn was a bit uneven and the draw was a little tight. However...This stick had a nice finish and a wonderful fuller flavored aftertaste. It was especially good with tawney port.

Review Notes: Bought a box of these Corojo #5's on this sites recomendations before the buzz on these sticks made them overvalued. The stick looked wonderful...shiny, slightly reddish brown corojo wrapper. It burned unevely. The flavor was nice but was not what I expected. Kind of an intense wooden H Upman flavor with a hot bite. Good but I am not completely sold on these yet...oops I am cause I already bought a box! Will wait a bit before smoking another. Maybe the box will work some magic. Second review forthcoming in a few weeks.
