I don't remember how many boxes I have smoked on this already. It's always my quick pick if I simply don't have too much time to explore around for something new or interesting. This is one of the best cigar brands in my humidor along with Monticristo and H. Upmann. It's sweet, creamy, chocolaty and nutty as well as the flawless burns from its impeccable construction. I wish they put out torpedo roll soon which is my prefer style and size. This cigar well deserve the 92/93 rating and with the price tag so low compares to other big name brands, it's a no brainer choice of your every day smoke. Try it out and start enjoy this wonderful cigar.

I can't believe nobody has smoked this. If they had, there should be many more reviews until mine. If you have smoked it, shame on you for keeping it to yourself. This is the best cigar I've smoked at any price, but it sells for a mere $80 per box of 20. In 2010, this cigar was rated 92 and listed as one of the top 25 cigars of 2010. New cigars pushed this into the background, but it still deserves to be in the forefront. A sweet, medium, slight fruit taste, toasty and creamy, not a hint of bitterness, heat or pepper to burn your tongue. You smile at the first puff and the complexity gives new nuances as you puff along. work of art, the medium brown supple wrapper oozes oil. The cap is thick and sturdy, and is a perfect seam all around. Great draw, ash, taste, really, nothing bad to say. It's a medium, but is mellow, not mild. But you could easily light this up with your morning coffee. Try the sampler, with three huge Gran Toro, and three robusto gordos, the 93 rated big brother with a little more kick. This still will take on any of today's challengers and is my go to smoke. I'm getting these bythe box.
