Review Notes: Even though I've been smoking cigars for awhile, I'm not an expert in distinguishing the subtle flavors. That is something I am still trying to improve. So I still have a ways to go before Cigar Afficionado signs me up. With that said, I will say that the flavor on this one is pretty darn good. And for $3 per stick at CI, the price/flavor ratio is a good buy. But I think people should be aware of one thing: This cigar will knock you on your butt. This thing is strong. I've read reviews on other web sites about this one and I thought that they were just wimps, but my dad and I both lit one up for the first time after a full meal (and my dad smokes every day), and this one had our head spinning. This is not a bad thing necessarily, but more of a buyer beware warning. But I will say, too strong for me. My only real complaint on this one is the burn. For a Padilla, it was an embarrassment. Both my cigar and my dad's had simply an awful burn and that sort of ruined the experience for me. I had to cut a significant portion of the cigar after lighting and change it from a Belicoso to a 3 inch quasi-Belicoso/Robusto. I willl not buy the bundle of 20 from CI for $59.99. I may buy a 5 or 10 pack for a cheap deal just to see if my cigar and my dad's burning problem was just a bad coincidence. But I now have my answer on the 20 pack.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (2) No (7)
