Review Notes: I had my first Onyx Reserve Maduro early last year. Initially I was 'blown away' with the flavor of this cigar. I purchased several additional sticks and am now about half way through my first box of these cigars. The appearance is nice - I've always enjoyed the look of a box pressed cigar. Although a few early sticks had slight draw problems during the first inch or so of the cigar, none of the smokes out of the box I purchased suffer from this problem. Amazingly, I put one of these down for nearly eight minutes and it was still nicely lit. The burn is not always even, therefore construction was taken down a bit - The flavor was a "plain good cigar" of a 7. It would be unfair to other cigars that deserve an 8 to place this ciqar amont them. However, I could easily see how other reviewers would rate this ciar at an 8 or higher for flavor. I felt that becasue the flavor was one dimensional, it lacked a bit of the 'excitement' one has with other maduros (Padron, RyJ Reserve, Hoyo De Monterrey Dark Sumatra). The value is without question what makes this cigar shine - for around $80 to $90 a box ($4 a cigar) you can not go wrong - hand these out all day to guests and they will love them!
