    Great review Gary. These sound very interesting.
    A lack of preparation on your part, does not constitute an emergency on my part.

    There is a test flight of 8 of these smokes on the Monster mashup tonight. 2 sticks of each size offered in the line for $24.98 with free shipping. Probably the best way I know of to investigate something you might like very much.

    I just won a 8 cigar sampler on cigarauctioneer. Including shipping it came out to $22, and just last week they had this sampler for $25 on cigar monster, so I'd call that a killer deal. Can't wait to try these.

    I love to try out new cigars so this is where I begin. The history of this is that it is a
    premium cigar selection made expressly for Famous Smoke Shop by Jesus Fuego.
    Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian art form that combines elements of martial arts, music, and dance.
     
     
     
     
    BRAND- Pronounced "kapu'era," Capoeira Professor

    SIZE - Robusto

    WRAPPER TYPE - 4-yr-aged Brazilian Mata Fino Maduro
    TIME SPENT IN HUMIDOR - 3 months

    TYPE CUTTER - Boston V Cutter

    LIGHTER -LGC Soft Flame

    BEVERAGE - Amarula

    APPEARANCE - I did not see anything that would give this cigar
    any negative hit but by the same token it was like any other cigar that
    looks good.

    CONSTRUCTION - No prominent veins or scuffs and appears smooth
    and nicely rolled from head to foot.

    FEEL - I rolled this between my fingers for a bit and it was firm with
    no soft spots and it had just the right amount of “give” to it which tells
    me it has been at the right humidity.

    TASTE - LIGHT UP - Right out of the gate this cigar gives up some great
    taste-very smooth with light chocolate and coffee..like a rich columbian.

    DRAW - Easy draw that gives enough smoke where I didn’t have to work
    very hard for it. I like a cigar that gives you as much as you want to take from
    it.

    EVEN BURN - Very impressive sharp burn where not once did I have to
    correct it nor did the ash flake. I don’t like an ash that is weak as that tells
    me that not only is this good tabacco but it was rolled with care.

    TASTE 1ST THIRD - Some cigars tend to start slowly and then work
    up to it’s flavor profile…this cigar as I said is ready to enjoy without
    waiting for the flavors to start getting stronger. Complex is one of those
    words that tend to get “over used” at times but this is just the right adjective
    to use for this potent cigar.


    2ND THIRD - It remains smooth and the wrapper is perfect for this cigar
    as I am a maduro fan…this cigar delights any maduro person because you
    are going to get a nice even taste of the wrapper and filler. Pepper mixed with
    a light wood and more chocolate keep this cigar very interesting.

    LAST THIRD - How can this thing keep getting better? All of the above
    flavors are still easy to spot as you can keep the smoke in your mouth quite
    awhile and taste the great finish. For a full bodied cigar as this is touted
    You never feel as if it is overpowering…one of the better balanced cigars
    I’ve smoked in some time. Not once does it get boring or old as the flavor
    will keep your interest.


    OVERALL CHARACTER - Full

    RATING 1- 20 I give this an 18.5 STRENGTH 1- 10 Solid 8

    COMMENTS - I was very impressed with this cigar as I have smoke Jesus Fuego
    Cigars before but this is a favorite for me now and since I’m one of those who do
    not buy cigars by the box normally…trust me for the price this is a no-brainer.

    QUALITY - ISSUES - I can usually find something wrong or negative with cigar
    but the way it lit, smoked, tasted and the ash was so firm I had to knock it off myself
    or this could have gone 3 inches without much of problem. Nice white thick clouds of
    good old fashioned cigar smoke.
    POSITIVES- I’m a fan and smoked it down to ½ inch and if my lips weren’t getting
    so hot I’d have smoked it down to a ¼ inch. These sell for about $116 for a box of 25
    but can be had on the Famous Auction site for almost half and at that price you’re
    stealing them. Once these are discovered the pricing will go up as well which is why
    I am going to buy 2 boxes and have bids on these. Cigars excite me and when they taste
    this good for an amazing price it’s like finding gold. Maduro Fans…get a 5 pak and try
    em out before they are discovered.

    Incidentally, they come in a toro size as well ( maduro wrapper) and as luck would have
    it they are the cheaper size than the Robusto. My bids are for both of them and would
    Easily pay up to $70 per box but hope they stay in the $50 range.
    Looks like you're not the only one that feels this way...

    This really is a hidden gem of a cigar and at a price point that still surprises me. I have stocked up with about 6 boxes of these and as long as I can still get these on the Auctioneer I will keep getting them. This is such versatile cigar in the respect that you can smoke these all day long..they are not heavy but you get enough taste and character that you don't get tired of them..at least I don't.

    I picked up a box of the Graduados last week that got lumped in with a bunch of other bonus deals when I grabbed a digital hygrometer off of Cigar Monster. Scored the box for $44.50 with CM's free shipping. I split them with my boss and they are currently resting. Can't wait to try them!

    Thanks for the thorough review, Gary (and for the recommendation I while back that turned me onto them to begin with). And thanks to humbertothehorrible for bumping this thread!
