I paid a visit to Metropolitan Cigars in Tampa and asked for the best deal on a bundle of medium bodied smokes. These were irresistible at $1.20 a stick when bought in a bundle. Of course, skeptical at that price, I bought the $24 bundle of 20 cigars. I figured, what the hell, I can at least smoke them on the beach and not care if they get wind blown. 

What a pleasant surprise I had! The taste was delicious, like a Starbucks Cappuccino, but a little stronger. Nicely rolled - good construction with a dark brown, reddish wrapper. 

When buying an unknown bundle, you always take the risk that you may acquire 20-25 cigars that are awful. These were great. I have had $4-5 cigars that weren't as good. They burn well with a decent ash, albeit a somewhat unattractive black ash, but so what at $1.20. These are not just good. They are excellent. I had to smoke six of them before I found one that didn't burn perfectly. The Cuban Leaf, Rare Connecticut Habano Torpedos from Metropolitan Cigars are the size and shape of a Cuban Monte Cristo # 2. It starts good, and gets better as it goes. I smoked it to the nub.

If you are going to be in Tampa, be sure to visit Metropolitan Cigars, 2014 East 7th Avenue, Tampa, FL 33605. 813-248-3304 or 800-607-3304. Visit their web site at http://www.metropolitancigars.com to order cigars.
