Review Notes: I must be all out of the first ten "magical sticks" I bought of these. I am into a different batch of these now...prob a year and a half box time...and boy can I tell the difference. Last stick was completely average. Nothing bad...nothing memorable. Tread cautiously. $2.50 PP.

Review Notes: The more I smoke within this line the more I realize that although these are mostly good...they can be a bit inconsistent...Last 3 had 2 just barley ok...and 1 excellent. 2.5 years box time. When on they are classic maduro wonderful-ness and a damn pleasur to smoke. When off they are sour and yucky. I'll combo-avg rank the last 3.

Review Notes: Once properly aged these fabulous sticks do not disappoint! I've had many of these in variable conditions and they are consistently yummy and very smokeable. You know you have a great cigar when it feels heavy, is hard to the touch, looks well packed with a shiny wrapper, and still draws perfectly. For such a little cigar (offhand, without a ruler, I dispute the 5X50 measurements...more like 43/4X49) this 8 month aged stick lasted nearly 2 hours delivering tons of smoke and a wonderful medium bodied maduro type flavor profile. I probably paid around $3 for this on C-Bid. Highly Reccomended.

Review Notes: Now that I've stocked up these and after you go to Cigar-Bid and buy a bunch of 5 packs then you can tell your friends. These aren't good. They are fantastic. The last one I smoked had a ripped to shreds wrapper, (careful...warning, fragile wrapper...keep the humidity up on these in your box...if dry...you'll cry!) was smoked outside at an Irish bar in a prevailing wind, lit with a bic, and I had to slurp it down quick because at any moment my pokey-pal buddy Glenn was showing up with the baseball tickets. All this going against this cigar and it still rocked my world. Don't let the small size fool you...there is some strength to these yet they have a nice balanced different type of maduro flavor that hits my palate just right...just take your time and savor them. Make sure you age these bad boys for at least 60 days. You should be able to get these for $2-3 per stick. A 10 in value even at $5 a throw. Very impressed with these.

Review Notes: What it lacked in appearance it made up for in flavor and smoking experience. This 5 country blend aged 5 years (hence Serie 55) started to burn uneven and had a slightly tight draw. The burn corrected itself and the draw improved with some gentle massaging. This let me get to what I considerered to be a smooth, rich, knockout flavor profile of coffee, dark chocolate, some earth and spice and an overall nice medium to full tobacco flavor. She lasted about an hour and 20 minutes and burnt nice and slow with a tighty grey-whitey ash. Nice aftertaste. Very surprised and impressed with this stick. Nabbed a fiver for $10. At that price a 10 in value. They can go for $5-7/ stick. Please read D.Dreggs well done first review of this stick.
