Est. 1844 and your views on the cigar

I was debating whether or not to pick some of these up, seeing allot of neutral reviews on them. Well I decided to get a few 5 packs of the Anejado No. 50 and have to say it is not a bad smoke ROTT. It has a nice pepper profile that shoots to the back of the throat and the aroma of the unlit cigar had a pleasant chocolate or coffee smell. About half way through the flavors go a bit bland and do not pick back up until the last part of the cigar. All in all I enjoyed it, I think with a little(or allot) or rest these will be good smokes later down the line.

I wanted to see what most of you thought of it that have tried it, just out of curiosity.

Re: Est. 1844 and your views on the cigar

Picked up a fiver initially and enjoyed them, then I bought a box of the 50 extras about 2 months ago. Smoked a fiver out of the box and put them away for a nap. I'll check back with them in a few months.

A pretty decent cigar for the price, but I think 6 months or so rest will improve them a lot.

I bought a box and let it rest for a month before smoking one, and I have to say it was quite excellent, especially for the price, I would give it a solid 8/10

I've looked at these for an everyday type of smoke. For the cost, its either good, or good priced. Im watching this thread to see how they are. Maybe ask for a box for Christmas.

One of the few Altadis/General products I can enjoy. They are what they are, but I keep a few around.

Re: Est. 1844 and your views on the cigar

I'd buy some #50's again if I could get them cheap.

I do have 4 more #50 extras left. The one I smoked I cut in half and smoked each separately. I liked the regular #50 better than the homemade halves........

I'm having a hard time thinking about smoking the #50 extras on their own as I just don't like them that much to spend enough time with the stick to finish it.

Re: Est. 1844 and your views on the cigar

Nice, thanks for the reply's! I have to say the more I think about it and how it was the more I want to smoke another, I might be picking up a box of these later down the line. I will post up a review here in the next few days on one and will post it in here, maybe we can have this thread moved to the cigar reviews and it will be the place to post for the est. 1844.

I thought these were done by AJ. Or are you referring to the fact that they are a CI/C.com exclusive?

Re: Est. 1844 and your views on the cigar

I snagged a box of the littlest ones off of the devil site for around $40 and had one ROTT, well plane in my case, but you get the point. I didn't really care for it at all so the rest were placed in our community chest humi. I presume the rest of my guys like them because they're moving out pretty well.

I dont plan on buying anymore of these.
