The Oscuro Churchill is attractive mostly due to the large band near its head.  The band has a colorful gold, red, white, and blue color scheme that really stands out and catches the eye.  The band features the La Estrella Cubana name along with the company’s logo.  The cigar itself has a very dark color that’s almost black and plenty of oil on its surface.  It does have quite a few veins that are visible and is toothy.  I feel no soft spots.  Before lighting, its scent is of pepper.  Its cold taste, meanwhile, is reminiscent of wood.

There is little to criticize in terms of the Oscuro Churchill's burn. It generates very long ash that is light gray in color. The draw is as good as one could hope for as well. The burn holds even on its own, and the cigar does not need any assistance in staying lit. Smoking time is just over 90 minutes. We are all good to go in this department.

In terms of flavors, the La Estrella Cubana Oscuro is quite good.  There is plenty of complexity that makes the entire smoking experience enjoyable until the end.  Sweetness and pepper are the first flavors that are noticeable, and the pepper has a bit of a kick to it.  The flavor then transitions into a smoother mix of more sweetness and chocolate.  A very creamy note changes up the profile entirely, and the final flavors are coffee and nuts.    

In all aspects, the La Estrella Cubana Oscuro is solid.  It looks good, is constructed well, burns nicely, and has a great combination of flavors.  Perhaps its best aspect, however, is the fact that it is affordably priced.  You can find bundles of 20 for around $50.  That price is definitely reasonable considering the cigar's quality and the experience it provides.  It also makes the Cubana Oscuro a worthy candidate as a daily cigar.  If you opt for other sizes in the line, like the Robusto, you could get 20 cigars for just $30.  That’s a win in my book.

The La Estrella Cubana Oscuro's combination of quality and value earn it a rating of 3.75 out of four stars.
